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.
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
A relaxed wedding blog – Lois and Gary at Friern Manor, Essex

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..
