A Quirky, Vintage & Super Personal Wedding
August 20, 2010
You might remember Amy & Darren from their fabulous
All the Fun of the Fair engagement session. I knew back then that their wedding would be a super stylish and quirky affair and they sure haven’t disappointed. I am SO EXCITED to share these with you.
The wedding took place at a private estate which belongs to Amy’s Godfather called Ipley Manor in Marchwood, Hampshire. The couple actually got engaged at the same venue 18 months earlier when Amy popped the question to Darren at her birthday party in front of all their friends & family. She snuck the proposal into a game they were playing. The answer was multiple choice and only he could answer it!
On the day Amy wore a beautiful one off
Temperley dress while Darren wore a suit from Jaeger with vintage bow tie and hankie. Amy arrived in a vintage Mustang driven by her father and they were married in Amy’s godfather’s new pool room where an oak floor was laid over the pool itself. Amy’s aunt made the cake and their tables were named after their favourite haunts in London and they had written a potted history of why for each table to make everything really personal.
Thanks to Amy & Darren and their fabulous photographer Sarah for sharing their wedding today

Pastel Colours for a 1950s Inspired Wedding: Emily & James
June 14, 2012
As soon as I laid eyes on Emily's incredible silver embellished 1950s inspired wedding dress I was smitten. What an utterly gorgeous bride and a completely beautiful wedding. I couldn't wait to get it on these digital pages of mine! The couple were married at Edes House, Chichester and had their reception at the groom's father's house in Bosham.
"We wanted our wedding day to completely reflect James and I", Emily told me. "This was something we kept in mind during the whole process, as I think it is easy to lose sight of what and who weddings are for, when you are surrounded by so many people in the wedding industry telling you that you absolutely need this and definitely need that.
We both adore the 1950s and the pastel shades, and I really feel like these things were very present in the whole day. We also chose from the beginning which things would be the most important to us - these ended up being the food/drink for James and the flowers for me. We chose a catering company who were very local and produced the most delicious food. We hand picked each of the types of alcohol we chose, with Arundel Ales coming from Sussex and the cider coming from Appledram which is just around the corner from the reception."
