Antonina Mamzenko (Memories Enclosed) sent me this incredibly beautiful wedding from St Augustine’s Priory in Kent. Gemma and Rob had a small and intimate wedding with just 16 guests, and arranged the whole day in just 10 weeks. They did a wonderful job and for its cosy character and charm this has to be one of my favourite weddings so far this year.

A wedding doesn’t need to be a huge party with all your university mates and distant cousins. All you need is your nearest and dearest family and friends – and as Rob and Gemma’s wedding day clearly shows, this can be the most beautiful and memorable celebration of your love.

    ADORABLE, what amazing images of what was so obviously a perfect day. Love the vintage flowers and especially the ‘just married’ shot of the bride and groom walking back down the aisle.
