Lois and Gary – a beautiful blue dress and a relaxed wedding blog

Good morning! Another gorgeous real wedding for you to enjoy today, and I hope you’ll love it. Today’s relaxed wedding with Greek inspiration comes from Friern Manor in Essex with images by David Walker Photography.

relaxed wedding Essex David Walker Photography (1)I love Lois and Gary’s approach to their big day: more personal than conventional, no stuffy rules or etiquette, just fun and laughter and love. That’s how a wedding should be! The couple were married at a registry office the day before, and the celebration you’re about to share is all about celebrating their love with friends and family. Perfect!

Congratulations to such a fab couple – Lois and Gary I wish you all the very best and many happy years together. You’re stars for sharing your wedding on the blog today! My thanks also to lovely David Walker Photography. Everyone – enjoy! Claire x

Wedding venue:

Friern Manor

Wedding photographer:

David Walker and Nick Austin (David Walker Photography)

How would you describe your wedding style?

Very relaxed with a Greek inspiration. Our colour pallet was duck egg blue, white and black.

Invitations and reception stationery:

We designed our own wedding invitations and had them printed. They were classic but modern.

What did you both wear?

Lois wore a dress that was designed by herself and made by a close friend. Her shoes were from Zara and she carried a simple bouquet of pale roses.

Gary wore a three piece suit from Moss.

The wedding ceremony was a blessing given by a family friend. We were married the day before in a registry office so our wedding day was more relaxed and personal. We had a reading that I wrote myself.

Wedding venue styling and details:

The venue decorations were already set up but we had a movie theme with table names and characters for each of our guests.

Wedding music and entertainment:

We had a Frank Sinatra style singer at first and a DJ with our chosen songs to finish off the day.

Memorable wedding day moments:

The whole day was just perfect.

Wedding day advice:

Do your own thing and don’t be swayed by anyone..
