Why you love this wedding…

Oh my goodness…for so many reasons! Phil and Sarah are adorable together and I loved their quirky style and sense of fun. They had some great ideas and I was very excited to shoot their day for them. Their venue, Hexton Manor, is beautiful and there are so many amazing areas within the grounds for photos that you’re spoilt for choice!

What were the couple’s requirements…

Phil and Sarah wanted someone there that would be able to capture their day unobtrusively and as the day unfolded naturally. I knew that they were both quite nervous about having their couple portraits taken, however on the day they just looked so in love and were such a cute couple together that that took over the nerves.

Favourite details of the day…

Has to be Sarah’s stunning dress and Vivienne Westwood shoes, as well as the pastel romantic colours of the flowers. Phil’s dad had made the cake as well and which looked amazing!

Tell us how you met and got engaged…

Sarah and I met on a night out in Luton (Bedfordshire) nearly four years ago now. We met at the bar in a club whilst both of us were queuing for drinks. I proposed on December 24th 2013 (Christmas Eve) at our home in Silsoe.

How would you describe your wedding theme (in under 5 words)…Fun, colourful, festival, pastel, different!

What was your main hopes for the day…

That everyone enjoyed themselves, felt relaxed during the day and that it wasn’t a ‘normal’ wedding. We wanted our wedding to be different, hence our theme and colour arrangement

The speech, of course!…And having all of our friends and family share our big day with us.

How was your day unique…

Festival themed lanyards, festival themed table plan, VW camper van, pastel coloured table linen, festival themed sign and hay bales. We spent huge amounts of time perfecting centre pieces and the arrangement we wanted.
