The Kiwi and the knock-out bombshell! Real wedding

Wedding photographer Pete Barnes describes this (gooooorgeous!) couple in his blog post as a fantastic, really great couple who are very obviously in love. Helen and Chris were married at Sandburn Hall near York, and these are some of my favourite photos from their wedding day.

Chris originally hails from New Zealand, so in case you were wondering he’s the Kiwi I mentioned in the title, and Helen – clearly – is the knock-out bombshell (both descriptions courtesy of Pete Barnes, lovely guy and great wedding photographer)!

What a great couple – this says it all, doesn’t it? As happy a wedding photo as I’ve ever seen! This is a really lovely moment and makes me smile right back!

Helen’s wedding dress is soooo pretty – beautiful embroidery and crystal details, so tiny  and delicate, then those sheer layers, oh so feminine and lovely.

I think that’s so lovely – and she must be a brilliant teacher to inspire such loyalty!

Helen’s confidence and ease with the camera shines through and I’m sure she’ll adore these images: different, graceful and really, really beautiful.

Get the Look: pure white wedding ideas

English Wedding at Sandburn Hall near York (1)Gypsophila is so tiny and delicate, but with so many little flowers it makes a real statement in a white wedding theme. It’s also known as baby’s breath or ‘gyp’.
