A pretty summer garden wedding in England with Siobhan H Photography Weybridge (9)

Our garden was our venue! Nick & Amanda’s countryside wedding with Siobhan H Photography

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend?

After something of a lazy weekend spent relaxing with family, I’m hitting the ground running with a stunning, knock your socks off kinda wedding today. The florals take centre stage – as they tend to, if you’re lucky enough to be able to celebrate your wedding in your own garden. Nick and Amanda did just that – they put all the flowers together for the tables, made their own invitations and wedding favours and even a balloon arch! Images are by our lovely friend and English Wedding Directory member Siobhan H Photography.

I love the relaxed feel of this wedding – the wooden tables and pretty styling go a long way – the trees dotted around the wedding breakfast tables look fabulous!

Amanda is beautiful in a simple lace dress with navy belt and shoes – an outfit perfect for dancing the night away! And Nick’s look fits perfectly with the relaxed vibe of their wedding day: his navy suit compliments Amanda’s style for the ceremony, and for the rest of the day he rocks a neutral waistcoat – these two lovely people just look so good together!

How did you choose your photographer?

She did a family photo shoot of us few years before the wedding.
We have known her for few years and feel very comfortable when she takes pictures.

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

Love the pictures.
The pictures are illustrating the journey of our wedding.
Loads of portrait of friends and family that we don’t see often.
Captured well the atmosphere of the day.

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

We were very excited and so pleased with the results.

  • Make it personal. If you want it, do it, if you don't you shouldnt feel you have to. Have fun, it's your wedding so talk to each other about what you want, your biggest dreams and also your biggest fears for the day. Build your wedding together and when the day comes relax. Nothing will be 100% what you planned but it won't matter because all your favourite people are in one place and you will be married and that's all that matters. ~ Michelle & Gavin Photo @linusmoran Venue @axnoller Bridesmaids @mixbridalboutique Entertainment @alist_band #weddingblog #bride #wedding #weddingday #weddings #picofday #picoftheday #bride #instamoment #realmoment #weddinginspiration #weddingplanner #weddingseason #weddingplanning#bridal #gettingmarried #futuremrs #justengaged #love #dress#instabride #isaidyes
