Real Weddings | Karen & Richard

 

I was contacted by Karen and Richard upon recommendation by Parsnip Mash, and I'm so glad they got in touch! 

Karen and Richard had booked their venue, however were looking for a little direction as to how to style the separate areas for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, and how best to schedule the day. In keeping with the style of the venue we chose a classic English garden theme with a vintage feel, enhanced beautifully by an abundance of florals by Megan Lily Floral Design. We were fortunate enough to have gorgeous weather on the day itself, allowing guests to relax and enjoy their surroundings in the grounds between events.

Karen and Richard were an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the whole process, actively involved at each step of the way in making decisions, yet permitting me full creative licence in pulling together the overall "look". The photography was captured perfectly on the day by Martin Dabek, whose images from this wedding were so stunning that they were even featured earlier this year on The English Wedding Blog!

A big thank you to all suppliers involved in this fabulous, love filled wedding.
