We’re all about the elegant styling and simple venue and table decor today on the English Wedding Blog! This is a beautiful wedding – I love Lisa’s dress, the flowers… and that summery sunshine at the end of the day is simply perfect! Lisa and George chose Rudding Park as their wedding venue, and Alfred and Co Photography to capture their day. Flowers are simple white roses with gorgeous foliage from Flowers by Colette in Harrogate.
Wedding photographer’s website:
We were recommended Kirsty by a friend, who used her the year before. After looking through their pictures, our mind was made up that we would like Kirsty to shoot our wedding.
We were very pleased with Kirsty from the very first point of contact with her. Not only is she a fantastic photographer, she also is very easy to deal with, and is very helpful with any questions or issues we had. When we saw our wedding photos for the first time we were thrilled, neither of us really like having our photo taken, but we both loved them. She captured so many natural moments, and that’s what made us delighted to have chosen her.
