Angela and Aaron’s white and gold winter wedding with Camilla J. Hards

Subtle colours and your own personal style are all you need to make your wedding perfectly, beautifully YOU – and today’s gorgeous bride and groom show us just how it’s done. Their day is elegant, with touches of glamour and timeless charm – and it’s as full of love and laughter as can be.

Styling is subtle and sophisticated: the flowers use green foliage and white ranunculus.We decorated the tables ourselves with long vases with ranunculus and gold and ivory petals scattered around.”

I asked the happy couple what one piece of advice they’d give to readers of the English Wedding Blog: “Always look at your watch, as it makes the time go slower!  Don’t get chatting to people for too long; you’re there to party too!”

The English Wedding Blog Interview: Aaron and Angela 

Wedding photographer’s website:

www.camillajhards.com

How did you choose your photographer?

She was a recommendation from the bride’s mother, who had previously placed Camilla in an apprenticeship.  With that, we booked an engagement shoot in order to meet her and see if we liked her style, which we did, obviously! 

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

From the moment we met her on our engagement shoot, Camilla could not have been any more accommodating.  We explained that our preference was for reportage style photos and whilst she took our advice on board, she also made sure that we covered all styles, just in case we did actually like the photos.  As a result, we had photos that we loved, which we may never have had were it not for her.  On our wedding day, Camilla did a wonderful job, making sure that we had all of the photos that we wished for and blending into the background seamlessly.  The attention to detail was noticeable as Camilla spent a lot of time ensuring that we had the best settings at the venue for our photos – all very creative.  By bringing an additional photographer, she was able to capture the special simultaneous moments that individual photographers are unable to do (i.e. groom waiting at the altar and bride arriving at the ceremony).  Thanks to Camilla, we are able to look back at our wedding photos with fond memories and could not have wished for a more warm and professional photographer.  Thank you.

Tell us about the moment you saw your wedding photos for the first time?

Having been on a three week honeymoon, we arrived home to a wonderfully presented display box from CJH, containing a number of prints, a CD ROM and a USB stick with our wedding photos stored.  It all looks very luxurious and we keep the box on display.  The photos themselves told the story of our wedding day exactly how we remembered it and it was really nice being able to reminisce about our big day once again.  That is something that we will be able to do for the rest of our lives.  The details were magnificent and we were so pleased with how she was able to capture each special moment, without us even realising!  It is safe to say that we are more than pleased with our photos and as a result have made many recommendations to friends and family for the service of CJH – a couple of whom have already subsequently made bookings.

Wedding venue:

White Hart, Great Yeldham

Wedding month:

January

Can you describe your wedding in fewer than 10 words?

If we did it again, we would change nothing. 

Your wedding style or theme:

Winter wedding. White and gold.

Where did you find your suppliers? (Blogs, magazines, recommendations?)

Online

What’s your top tip for saving money?

Get multiple quotes and sleep on them before making a decision

… and which elements of your wedding are you glad you spent more on?

 The live band and the best food and drink that we could afford.

Where did you buy or source your wedding stationery – or was making it a labour of love?

A local printer

Did you fall in love with your wedding dress?

Am still in love.

Wedding dress designer and bridal boutique:

Precious Moments

Tell us about your accessories: jewellery, shoes and anything else!

David Roberts Jewellery, Leigh on Sea, for rings and bracelet from groom

Harriet Wilde shoes were very comfortable.

Capelet by Justin Alexander.

And what did the groom wear? Any recommendations for tailors?

Navy blue three-piece lounge suit with white shirt, navy blue knitted tie and dark brown shoes.  Pocket watch and silver tie clip. Suits from Anthony Hire, Billericay.

Beautiful bridesmaids: what did your best girls wear?

Ivory dresses and fluffy capelets.

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

DIY – I am a hair stylist and love doing my own make-up.

The wedding cake: what kind of cake did you choose and why?

Four-tier mix of fruit and sponge from Marks and Spencer, which our cousin kindly decorated for us.  We wanted a selection of cake types to suit all tastes.  There was even a chocolate sponge tier reserved for the groom!

 Entertainment: any musical recommendations, surprises or treats?

Cover Up Band.  We have used them many times now and they never ever let us down.  They are a 6-8 piece band covering songs from old to new.  The dance floor is always full, which is testament to them. Magnificent band. http://www.coverupband.co.uk/

What’s the best thing about being married?

Having the same name  and saying, “My wife/husband…”

  • Moments or details? LOVE this pic from @crislowisphotography which for me answers the question. Yeah, we love details and planning and the excitement of making a wedding beautiful. But afterwards, when only your photos and memories are left to remind you of your best day ever? It's the moments you'll fall in love with over and over again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Groom's view - the best things about marriage: "Looking at my ring finger every day to see the ring and what it means to us. Being able to introduce Rowena as my Wife as opposed to the girlfriend! Having the lady that I fell in love with at pretty much first glance now being my wife. Coming home after work and just talking to one another spending time as a three with our 3 and a half year old daughter."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
