Good morning to all of you lovely folks – I hope your day is going well so far! Do you have sunshine? There’s plenty here for you to enjoy on your screens from Sian and Stephen’s wedding day which I hope will make you happy! I love this wedding: the images are lovely and light and fresh, and the styling of the day is pretty as can be – those dried flowers are lush! Words and images by Emily Crutcher Photography…
If I ever have a wedding, I hope I’ll be able to describe the day as Maud does hers: “A beautiful, colourful day filled with love and madness.” In my world, this is everything a wedding should be! And Maud looks amazing, she and Andy both do. I jumped at the chance to share their day with you – the images capture the spirit and excitement of the day in such a magical way!
There are two things I really love about this wedding: it’s all about love, family, friends, and laughter and having fun; and the attention to detail and the care that went into styling everything is outstanding. The colours, the flowers, the dress (custom made for our beautiful bride – I LOVE it!) This would be my perfect wedding.
Our venue needed loads of decoration, which was all done by us a few days before! Lots of make do and mend, old pillow cases and candles. No supplier would have been able to get it as right as my mum and dad did. Loads of family and friends helped the night before!
One thing that really marks a wedding for me is the menswear: as a wedding blogger it’s something I look out for even more than the dress. You just know when the guys are wearing something a little more interesting than hired suits, it’s going to be an amazing wedding. Beverley & Jackson – your day is the perfect, gorgeous, brilliant example of the kind of celebration I love!
Today’s stunning bride & groom married at Gaynes Park, Essex. “The venue is so beautiful that it didn’t need much decoration at all. We chose to have some festoon lighting in the barn, which turned out to be a great decision as when we sat down to eat the heavens opened, so the lighting made the room feel cosy and intimate.”
They saved money on flowers: “The biggest saving we made was through our choice of dried flowers. Dried flowers are much cheaper than fresh and it also meant that we could make up the arrangements ourselves.”
