I love Leah & Brian: she’s absolutely gorgeous and wears her dress like it was made for her, and the beach portraits of them together are divine. They make the loveliest couple and have some really sweet details too: the little hearts on the wishing tree, the flowers (especially that lovely little fern leaf bouquet), and I really love the looks they exchange through the ceremony!

The flowers are sublime: “I wanted a simple bouquet of cream roses with some greenery intertwined and around the edge, which is exactly what I had! For the bridesmaids I wanted something simple but very different from mine, a pop of colour to accentuate the navy! My mum, Hilary and my Aunt, Fliss, arranged the flowers themselves. They also knew exactly what flowers we needed to order, what would look great together, what would be in season, everything! They did such an incredible job! They also made the button holes which were simply wheat sheaths tied with a ribbon. Brian’s was made slightly differently with one of the roses from my bouquet inside his!”


Emily and Daniel are one of the loveliest couples I’ve had the pleasure of featuring… and their wedding is filled with pretty touches and creative details. They married at Upton Barn in July and chose lovely Mark from Evolve Photography to photograph their day.

I have so much to tell you I barely know where to begin… the interview which follows the photos today is superb, and this quote from Emily is spot on: “If at the end of the day you are married to your best friend then it has been a success, everything else is just details.

The details, however, look to have been a total success and then some! I adore the place settings and little favours (too cute!) and the lavender touches are just divine. Suppliers were found through recommendations and online, and Emily and Daniel found their venue through a local wedding show.
