The snow may be falling but Spring is definitely on its way. I love to see the daffodils starting to pop up so I thought I’d share this flower filled wedding from last July.
Roanna and Martin are both keen gardeners and they chose the beautiful setting of Hidcote Manor, a National Trust garden near Chipping Campden in Gloucestershire, for their relaxed summer wedding. The ceremony was in the Plant House next to the pond which was full of the most out-going newts I’ve ever seen. The ones in my pond pop up and back down so quickly you blink and you miss them. These were sunbathing! This was followed by prosecco and canapés on the Plant House lawn, then we were able to take advantage of the gorgeous summer evening to explore the gardens for some chilled out portraits. The day ended with a meal and speeches at nearby Threeways House Hotel, home of the Pudding Club.
Roanna looked absolutely stunning – her dress was so pretty and suited her perfectly. The flowers were also gorgeous and included my favourite Scabious – such a pretty flower despite the name! I have to mention the cake as one of the things I like to do is to help my couples whilst they’re planning. When we met up in June, Roanna and Martin told me they were struggling to find someone to make them the kind of cake they wanted. I was able to put them in touch with Charlotte at www.buttercreamanddreams.com/ who had made a naked cake for one of my weddings the previous year. Luckily she was able to help and the finished cake was looked amazing.
Thank you so much to Roanna and Martin for asking me to capture their wedding – it all came together beautifully and it was such a pleasure to shoot, especially as in addition to the beautiful setting and relaxed vibe it was great to catch up with Holly (Roanna’s sister) & Neil, whose wedding I shot a couple of years before, and the rest of the family.
I’ll leave you to have a look at some of my favourite shots, and if you’re looking for a photographer for a wedding at Hidcote, or any other flower filled venue, please get in touch as I’d love to hear from you!
