Two things – when I stop giggling. Two quite important things –
1) this is actually genuinely REALLY beautiful and
2) injecting a little bit of happy chuckling into any lockdown day is the best thing you can possibly do. It’s definitely what solid-haired Rachel & Rowan did on their wedding day last week, in the company of Yorkshire wedding photographer Andy Matheson.
They’re the best-looking Lego couple we’ve EVER featured here on English Wedding, and despite a few mishaps (Rowan slipped and fell on the lentil-confetti, but don’t worry: he was ok) their day is – and now I’m NOT laughing: really, truly, beautifully captured!
Andy Matheson – you’re a genius. I’ve seen a few of these, but none anywhere near as beautiful. You did FIREWORKS!
Lovely readers, please do share this with everyone you know. I hope it will lighten the stress of reschedules and postponements for a little while at least. I love it to bits!
We begin the day with proper girly bridal prep: full on hair (@Caroline Bridal Hair Stylist) and makeup (@evangelinemua). Can you work out what the hairdryer and makeup brushes are? Took me a little while!
… that’ll be one of those special lighting mirrors make up artists have – even the lego ones!
Dad walks Rachel down the aisle in his best outfit… she looks happy, nervous and excited…
… as Rowan waits eagerly in his shiniest knight’s costume for his beautiful bride.
Just a little reminder that these are little lego people, because after all it looks so REAL! Hi Andy!
Loving the rainbow detail on the back of Rachel’s dress (from https://bridalreloved.co.uk)
This is my fave bit: Andy’s blog had me in stitches. Two incredibly solid haircuts make this a very chaste wedding! Rachel leans in with everything she’s got, and Rowan’s clearly furious they can’t make the “kiss the bride” moment happen…
… but a little camera angle change, and it’s the most romantic frame of the day so far. How adorable?!
Confetti moments! But careful walking down the aisle, you two…
Rachel’s face… I’m sure her expression’s changed! Also thinking someone blew the little guy over… 😉
… time for a few gorgeously lit portraits of the newlyweds… take a moment to appreciate how this is all beautifully lit, and framed, and everything!
I think we’re levelling up right now: it’s golden hour. Seriously amazing stuff coming up!
(it took me until now to realise the bride literally has two heads. Still beautiful though hehe)
Sunset! I mean seriously, does it get any better? It’s like the perfect wedding day! (clue – yeah, it’s about to level up even more…)
first dance magic.
Check out Andy’s montage video on our Facebook or Instagram to see how it’s done!
clearly they’ve been practising a choreographed routine with those moves!
The dance floor is full all night long thanks to super cool @arkaiddj
and as if that wasn’t amazing enough – let’s just blow everyone’s (life size) minds with some fireworks…
I’ve never ended a blog post like this before, but I’m totally lost for words.
Bloody amazing – thank you Andy for making us smile SO MUCH with this! If your mini weddings are this gorgeous, I can’t WAIT to feature some of your big ones!
