When the bride works in events, you KNOW her wedding is going to be flawlessly put together. Akilah was adamant she didn't want a themed day ("even the word theme perturbs us a little!" she said) but she and Richard were naturally drawn to things that worked together, which was only solidified when they found their venue, The Barn at Bury Court in Farnham. They incorporated elements like candle and lots of flowers which created a low key, yet perfectly cohesive day,

Dan and Maddie spent two years planning for their August 2019 wedding, which enabled them to personalise their day throughout the planning process. They included their love of rock music, military, their dogs, board games, tattoos and glitter. All in all they put their focus of crafting a day that was unique to them, and to ensure their guests were well fed and well entertained!

Bohemian Peaky Blinders Wedding with Lots of DIY

December 4, 2018

Charlie and Mark had a pretty unconventional, NSFW engagement shoot (which is actually one of my favourites we've ever published!) so, unsurprisingly, their September wedding shunned tradition too. They decided that they wanted a bohemian inspired by with elements of Peaky Blinders and Wes Anderson. They did lots of DIY projects to make their day feel really special and personal. In particular they arranged all the flowers and created all the paper goods (invites, table plan, order of the day etc).

All You Need is Love

September 19, 2018

Emma and Kevin wanted their wedding celebrations to reflect their lives, 'as if you'd just walked into their house', and I think they totally nailed it. A relaxed barn ceremony, a navy (non) wedding dress from Dorothy Perkins, and their two lurchers made their day super personalised and absolutely perfect for them. Bucking loads of traditions - which Emma wisely says "carry too much symbolic baggage", they got married on a Tuesday to save money. Oh, and they also had a beer blessing. So, y'know...

Rustic, Beer Themed Wedding with a Temperley Wedding Dress

Charlie and Duncan were lucky enough to score a gem of a venue for their wedding - Outfields Farm in Bedfordshire. Usually used for holiday accommodation, they had their reception in the barn usually used as a bunk room, and the whole bridal party were able to take over the holiday cottages adjacent for the whole weekend. Many of their other guests camped on site too. As it wasn’t an advertised wedding venue, happening to belong to Charlie’s bridesman’s parents, they’re convinced they managed to achieve what they wanted from their big day for a third of the price of hosting it in a manor house or country club!

Rea and Rhi's colourful woodland wedding is not only beautiful to look at, it's a totally feelgood day too. Their inspiration for the day was about community, with everyone coming together to support them and celebrate their connection. There's a beautiful communal spirit that oozes out of these photos. And with a colour scheme that extended to 'hot pink, yolk yellow, orange, salmon and purple', it was also all things bright and beautiful!
