Jade & Richard’s intimate, colourful and gorgeous Millbrook Estate wedding, with Freeform Images

Published by Claire Gould on

A vibrant, relaxed micro wedding with just two witnesses – and all the fabulous details to make the day look amazing. Jade and Richard had to rethink their Nigerian wedding because of the pandemic, and downsized their plans to this intimate and romantic celebration of their love. With a gorgeous bride and groom, a stunning pixie dress and funky suit, summer meadow wildflowers and a home made cake, this is exciting and inspiring – the perfect little wedding. Special thanks to lovely Laura from Freeform Images for sharing her images with us today.

How did you choose your photographer?

She was recommended through the venue and we just absolutely loved the feedback on Laura’s previous work

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

Photos were absolutely dreamy. Laura was really fun and relaxed on the day and felt like a guest and friend more than a photographer

Tell us about your venue – what made this place special for you?

Beautiful venue at millbrook estate. Private and intimate for a relaxed wedding just us.

Did you love wearing your outfits? How was the dress / suit shopping experience?

Really relaxed experience we really didn’t have any stress at all, I felt amazing in my pixie dress. Richard chose his funky suit relatively easy and off we went 🙂

Did you hire a florist? Tell us about any floral amazingness

I did just for a bouquet for myself and two button holes. Flowers were amazing summer meadow wildflowers which really complimented the vibe of the day.

As cake lovers here at English Wedding we’d LOVE to know who made your cake, and how delicious it was?

I made my own cake 🙂 small and simple with two wooden characters and flags with nigerian prints

What was your first dance song? Why did you choose it?

Whitney Houston your love is my love – always a song we put on in the kitchen whilst cooking together

How did the pandemic affect your wedding plans? Do you have any advice to share with couples planning their weddings right now?

We initially were looking at a wedding with lots of guests which is traditional in Nigerian culture, however the pandemic made us reevaluate our plans and opened up the possibility of a more intimate day with just us which we were more fond of. We got engaged in Croyde the year before so returning to Devon to get married was just perfect. We got married and moved into our first purchased home in the same week
