Autumnal Ufton Court Wedding – Hannah & Rob


 

This beautiful autumnal Ufton Court wedding has definitely been a highlight for me this season and I’m so happy to share it with you.

The morning mist was still lingering as we started the day at the bride’s family home in Camberley, Surrey. Everyone was calm and serene as the ladies were beautified and the gentlemen made breakfast, polished shoes and refined speeches. Nan kept a watchful eye over the proceedings and all seemed to go according to plan. Hannah’s parents are keen gardeners and told us to ‘help ourselves’ to their spacious back garden for some beautiful photos of the vintage-styled bridal shoes (by Rachel Simpson), elegant and shimmering bridesmaid dresses, and THE FLOWERS.

Now I can’t go any further without gushing about those flowers by The White Horse Flower Company! Oh my goodness, the bouquets have to be in my top 3 of all time and they smelled AMAZING. Often, when planning a wedding, folks don’t understand why wedding flowers cost so much or what the point of them is. After seeing these flowers, it made me realise their importance and how they tie the season or theme together in the most beautiful way. Lindsey from The White Horse Flower Company is a genius, a lovely lady and someone you can trust to interpret your flower requirements to perfection. Hannah & Rob decided, with Lindsey, to make the most of their hessian wrapped tubs of red heather that lined the aisle for the ceremony so they became the table centrepieces for the wedding breakfast and will eventually be planted in the bride and groom’s garden as a memento of the day. Talk about forward planning and not letting anything go to waste!

The rest of the autumnal decor in the Tithe Barn at Ufton Court had been lovingly made by the bride and groom: home-dried confetti, hand-tied leaf bunting, hand-painted crate signs, handmade streamers that covered the entrance of the bridal party and doubled up as a backdrop for the head table, hand-chiseled pieces of wood with Hannah and Rob’s initials, and a rather impressive array of white photo frames that displayed the bridal party in all their glory. So yes, a lot of time and effort had clearly gone into making everything look very pretty which helps make my job that little bit easier!

Rob and his groomsmen wore hired blue three piece suits and brown shoes. Rob opted for a deep maroon coloured tie which complemented his groomsmen’s ivory ties. Lindsey’s fab buttonholes of heather, blue berries and twine looked amazing on the guys’ blue lapels – great choice all round. Hannah’s dress had beautiful lace flower detail over the shoulders, bodice and the top of the skirt which was a mass of layers of soft tulle which flared out at the back creating a small but elegant train. The silk ribbons on Hannah’s bouquet set off her dress in a boho, kind of whimsical way that didn’t overpower or distract from the bride. The great Total Hospitality team were on form providing a whole host of goodies for the guests to enjoy as well as conjuring up the elegant wedding cake on top of feeding everyone – what stars, and trust me, they make it look easy. The evening was rounded off by DJ Adam Rees getting everyone up and dancing, the way it should be!

This wedding has reminded me that in all the decisions when planning a wedding, be convicted in what you are doing and in the decisions you are making. Just because it’s on Pinterest, it doesn’t mean it’s right for your day. Your wedding day should reflect you as a couple and we felt this autumnal wedding suited Hannah and Rob down to the ground.

Seaside Theme Berkshire Wedding – Roxy & Scott


This seaside theme Berkshire wedding was a real treasure. Roxy & Scott have a true love for the coast (Scott proposed to Roxy on bended knee on one of their favourite beaches) so they wanted the seaside to be the theme for their wedding. They tied the knot on Friday 7th August 2015 at the lovely Herons Farm in Berkshire, and then headed over to the gorgeous HillFields Farm Estate for the reception. They envisioned a rustic and relaxed wedding day with a seaside theme… think afternoon tea, beers in a boat & beach huts.

Roxy bought her stunning dress from Confetti Bridal Centre in Wokingham… “When the assistant brought out a sheer lace off the shoulder jacket with scalloped detail, it became my perfect dress.” The gorgeous flowers were by the wonderful florists  Croppers in Bloom  The stunning purple hydrangeas were a perfect match for the Purple bridesmaids dresses.

It was pleasure to shoot this gorgeous wedding, such a fun day. PS Every wedding should have boat full of Corona!

Autumnal Engagement Shoot – Robyn + Luke


This Autumnal engagement shoot was a pleasure to shoot. Autumn is such a beautiful season and Robyn + Luke really wanted to embrace that. This gorgeous Berkshire woodland was perfect for this engagement shoot. The leaves were an amber gold and the weather was crisp and beautiful.
