Adrian and Charlotte’s beautiful Wasing Park wedding with Ian Wallace Photography

Today’s bride and groom planned a beautiful barn wedding in just eight months. And when I say beautiful… it’s breaking my heart trying to narrow down the selection of images to show you for today’s blog feature.

There are smiles and tender moments and stunning portraits throughout this incredible day. The venue – unmistakably Wasing Park – is spectacular. The sunlight is divine. Adrian and Charlotte are clearly made for each other…

And yet… as I scroll through the images from their wedding, part of me thinks if I could only show you two or three images this would still be a wedding of the year. When it comes to breathtaking wedding pictures, Ian Wallace Photography is one of the best. But you don’t need me to tell you… just look at this wonderful English wedding. You will fall in love.

Our wedding story: Adrian and Charlotte

Wedding photographer’s website:

www.ianwallacephotography.co.uk

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer?

Absolutely! Could not have been happier! He is amazing for so many reasons.

Wedding venue:

Wasing Park, Aldermaston, Berkshire

Wedding date:

8th September 2014

Can you describe your wedding in a single sentence?

The most amazing, memorable and love-filled day of our lives (so far!).

What was your reaction to seeing your wedding photos for the first
time?

Overwhelmed with happiness and relief at how much i loved them. It was so lovely to relive the day in pictures – they were so much more than I had hoped for.

Your wedding style or theme:

No particular theme, but we just picked anything we liked regardless of whether or not it matched.  Overall we had a fairly rustic style – simple but pretty.

How long did you spend planning your wedding?

8 months

Best bit of budget advice?

When picking a venue – make sure you drill down the details and know all the restrictions/caveats etc. as some venues have expensive conditions.  Also, when purchasing anything, keep in mind that it is only “one day” in your life to help keep costs in perspective.

Wedding invitations and on the day stationery:

We made all our own stationery.  We used brown card and used a heart rubber stamp with bunting along the top.  We made our words up to suit our personalities – very informal.  We sent a save the date, followed by an invitation.  On the day we had a card called “The Plan” with a rough list of what was happening when – in the same style as the rest of the stationery.

Did you fall in love with your wedding dress?

Yes Absolutely!  I loved every second of wearing that dress and would have slept in it if i could have!

Wedding dress designer and bridal boutique:

Sincerity dress, bought from Pure Couture bridal boutique in Beaconsfield.

Glitz and sparkle – the bride’s accessories:

I bought a pearl and diamonte hair vine from JJHouse online.  I had pearl earrings by Jersey Pearl and a pearl bracelet with A&C charms from Thomas Sabo.  shoes were by Fillippa Scott.

Suited and booted – the groom wore:

A lovely fairly bright blue suit from ted Baker with a waistcoat and a purple paisley tie.  With tan brown brogues.

Beautiful bridesmaids: what did your best girls wear?

I didn’t have any bridesmaids.

Hair and make-up – did you DIY or hire a professional?

I hired a wonderful lady called Lorraine Milligan who did my hair and makeup – she did the most amazing job.

Wedding flowers:

I had a small bouquet of white flowers with touches of green, from Lindsay at the White Horse Flower Company.  We also had large white hydrangea heads and dhalias in hand decorated jam and kilner jars.

General styling – did your venue need much decoration?

Not really as it was a beautiful brick barn, so had a lovey warm, cosy ambience.  Adrian and his best man put up fairy lights across the beams in the barn and we had loads of candles in the slats of the brick walls.  a bit of bunting and some lanterns were outside.

DIY – tell us about any handcrafted elements of your wedding…

Me and my lovely friend Michelle made all the kilner jars and jam jars with raffia and ribbon.  We also had felt flowers that Adrian’s Mum and foster sister made for all our guests in green and white so they all felt part of the day.   My dad made the beautiful table plan which was so precise!  and our nephew and Adrians sister helped make the favours which were spice jars with m&ms with our picture on (one of the photographers) and the date of the wedding!

The wedding cake: traditional or quirky?

Both – a 2 tier traditional fruit cake (from M&S) with our own toppers (2 x bees) and a cupcake tower with mini bee cupcakes as the top tier.

Entertainment:

We had Charles Burn the silhouette artist cutting guests’ silhouettes and giving them as gifts.  We had a photo booth and the Rock Doctors Live Band in the evening.

On the day tips and advice:

Just go with the flow and enjoy being around your favourite people, you new wife/husband and just forget about how the day is going – just ENJOY!   If you can try to plan a couple of breaks where you can spend 20 minutes with your new wife/husband alone that’s nice to do as you spend most of the day talking to everyone but!

What’s the best thing about being married?

The security of knowing you have both made the biggest commitment of your lives (so far) to each other.

  • Every time I look at the ring on my finger I think “wow, I’m so lucky”. I still can’t quite believe that a man as incredible as Tom would fall in love with me. Waking up to him every morning is absolutely THE best thing about being married and I don’t want it to ever change. ~ Izzy on English Wedding @martin_dabek_photography at @tortworth_court_weddings #bridalgown #weddingdress #bridalfashion #bridalstyle #weddingfashion #bridetobe #gownideas #dress #instawedding #weddingplanning #weddingideas #romantic #weddinginspo #weddinginspiration #marriedbliss #brideandgroom #meaningfulmoments  #weddingday #bristolweddingphotography ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
