Samantha and Edward’s traditional country chic wedding in Cirencester, with Penny Young Photography

Samantha and Edward’s wedding is just gorgeous. Samantha describes their style as ‘traditional country chic’ – the perfect label for a deliciously done, classic English wedding.

They married in the summer, choosing delicate pastel colours and focusing on beautiful flowers in their wedding theme. I love Samantha’s advice about ‘the little things’ – she told me it’s the people, the food and the music which matter most of all. I love her comment about her Stewart Parvin dress though: “It was amazing and I wish I could wear it all the time.” She looks incredible. (And hey, why not wear it again? I would!)
