Nothing quite beats the warmth of a tipi wedding – and Sarah and Matthew used theirs as the focal point for a festival-style celebration on the family farm. The little touches and flowers are gorgeous; but the loveliest thing about today’s wedding is Sarah – she’s so beautiful in a blush pink gown which just suits the day perfectly (and is amazing for dancing in!)
Sarah-Louise and Sam’s big day was a relaxed, country affair at Marks Hall Estate in Essex. I fell in love with their images, which perfectly capture the spirit of their celebrations and love. The brick walls and twinkling fairy lights are a beautiful backdrop for the reception; the gardens are breathtaking for portrait shots.
We were really lucky that our venue didn’t need a lot of styling. The venue spoke for itself really, it’s a beautiful coach house, exposed red brick inside with a really high ceiling and exposed beems. Lisa our wedding coordinator had organised fairy lights all over the ceiling. We had our table flowers done by Sophie Kim. I did a sweet table for the kids that were there too!
There’s nothing I love more than a success story – when lovely brides and grooms show a wedding supplier so much love their business can grow into something wonderful. So when I saw on Instagram that my lovely friend and sponsor Ayshea Goldberg had gone and got herself a fab new office space for client meetings and viewings I just had to show you here! Ayshea – well done lovely, you deserve this beautiful space so much!
My lovely friend and sponsor Ayshea Goldberg Photography sent me this wonderfully light and bright wedding photoshoot to share with you all. I adore the contrast of the lemon and purple colour palette; the venue itself is simply breathtaking – a magical location for a beautiful English wedding.
“The venue we chose was Layer Marney Tower and the theme was a summer country garden wedding. We opted for bright lemon flowers and lush green foliage to bring a fresh and vibrant feel to the shoot. Each supplier used their expertise and talents to really showcase what they love doing and highlight their creativity.” [Full supplier credits are at the end of the feature]
