How did the couple find you?

I met Zoë and Luke in 2015 at a wedding fair in Brighton. They won a competition I was running for an engagement shoot; we had it on Halloween in the South Downs. It was epic, we had red smoke bombs and made friends with some cows!

What was your favourite part of the day?

The piñata! I loved seeing both bride and groom bash the shit out of them with a bat and then they got all their guests to do the same. There were sweets and lollies flying about everywhere. I thought it was hilarious!

What was your favourite shot of the day, and why?

A close up portrait of the couple. I loved it because in all the craziness of the staged photos (we were doing smoke bombs posed ones in honour of their engagement sesh) they found the time to have this incredible unstaged moment and I was there to

Stephanie and Luke’s Laidback Pub Wedding with Rustic + Bohemian Styling…

Relaxed Pub Wedding…

Good morning and welcome to another unique real wedding instalment here on the blog! Today we have the absolute pleasure of sharing Stephanie and Luke’s laidback, beautifully bohemian, pub wedding with you, captured by the wonderful Marni V Photography. Her relaxed and informal style suited this couple perfectly, as she describes herself as offering ‘Fun, Creative, Alternative Wedding Photography for the Crazy In Love‘. And speaking of love, you can just feel it radiating from these two…just look at the way they give each other that ‘look’!

I absolutely adore Stephanie’s flower choices, as she’s picked simple yet sophisticated petals and foliage that work against the bare table setting so well. The couple were actually on a lower-than-average budget too, although you would never know it with this beautiful pub wedding! This wedding is super effortless, vintage-boho chic at it’s best. And let’s not forget the invitation of the couple’s dog please – I am a HUGE dog lover, so pet-paws at a wedding gets a big smile and a firm thumbs up from me!

So happy to hand over to photographer Marni and bride Stephanie to tell you all about the day in a little more detail….
