This is a small Garden Party style set up, with a chill out vibe in the Essex countryside. This semi festival theme is perfect for an intimate or micro wedding, with outdoor space and child entertainment area.

The rich autumn colour palette that is a mixture of warm sunlight and bonfire could help warm up this cold winter. A rich vibrant colour of the autumn sun and fall leaves.

We absolutely loved working with these endearing and quirky colours… a Wild Country style bouquet, with hints of orange and red – which really brings the wooden rustic style settings to life, and the dark champagne colour suit that plays so well with an orange tie.

Emma wears a classic, simple, elegant wedding gown with exquisite bolero lace and pearl details. We went for classic deep red lips to lift up her beautiful pale complexion, this is also matched with details on bouquets and ribbons.

We decide to have Emma’s hair up as it was very windy and we also wanted to show off the dress’s details. We create some braided details and left lots of loose curls to help soften up her look.
