Nikyla and Jonathan’s nature reserve wedding was themed around a romantic forest with lots of lush greens and flowers everywhere.
Grin Court Nature Reserve, was the perfect venue for our day”, said the bride. “Jonathan and I really wanted nature incorporated into our wedding. There were so many great places for photographs and being within nature was exactly what we were looking for. I have also always been obsessed with Britain so the English countryside was a huge inspiration too.”
“We kept our wedding completely true to us”, she continued. “Jonathan and I are both huge introverts so having all eyes on us was so nerve-wrecking. The ceremony was short and sweet and the reception had to be the best part because then we could just relax.”
“The best part about wedding planning was seeing all our ideas and dreams coming together. The only thing I would have changed was to have been more relaxed on the day. I was so preoccupied with how everything was running that I missed a few special moments.”
