Once In A Lifetime.

Lizzie and Paul married in July 2012. Their ceremony was held at the magnificent Medieval St Mary’s Church in Bitton and a reception at Guyers House in Corsham followed.

The title for our wedding this afternoon comes from Pauls decision to go for tails for his wedding day. As a ‘king of casual’ he decided this was his one opportunity to push the boat out and go super formal. And clearly, he rocked it.

All of the beautiful light of Lizzie and Paul’s July w-day has been captured perfectly by Brett Symes.

I Felt Like A Princess

My dress was called ‘Gracie’ by Suzanne Neville, bought from a wonderful boutique in Clifton Village called The Mews. I knew it was the one as it made me feel like a princess. I looked in the mirror and thought ‘wow’, which very rarely happens!

The staff at The Mews are absolutely fantastic and made the whole experience of choosing a dress really special.

Simple And Elegant

I wanted to keep everything pretty simple and elegant. In terms of hair accessories, I wore a couple of simple diamante clips and a long veil for the ceremony and shortly afterwards.

For jewellery, I bought some lovely diamante drop earrings by Ozzie based designer Stephanie Browne. They arrived from Oz very close to the day! My Mum also lent me her special diamond (real as opposed to the rest of my diamante pieces!) bracelet bought by my Dad for their 30th Wedding anniversary.… View the full post.

Oranges And Lemons Say The Bells Of St. Clement’s.

Ana and Jon married at St Clement Danes Church on a very sunny spring afternoon in central London.

Photography today is by Mark Alesky, Mark also made comment on the weather saying that his lasting memory of Ana and Jon’s day is of the perfect light-filled atmosphere, as well as some seriously good hair and make-up and of course Jon and his ‘crew’ decked out in their military finest.

It is a military affair today then folks, we have venues steeped in tradition, stunning architecture and a warmth from the family and friends in attendance that pours from this set of images.

Let’s All Go Down The Strand

The marriage ceremony was at St Clement Danes Church on the Strand, followed by a reception at the Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn.

Jon is a Captain in the British Army, and his paternal grandfather was in the RAF so we were very lucky to be able to get a licence to marry at St Clement Danes through his military connections. The church was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and it is absolutely beautiful inside. It has an extremely wide isle and is very ornate interior so we decided not to have any flowers or other embellishments in the church – the design and architecture of the building did the work for us. The vicar delivered a really lovely service and this was by the best part of the day for both of us.

Petal Pink… Part 2

Welcome back for Part 2 of this pretty pink affair in which simplicity reigns and florals are the feature… all captured beautifully by Rebecca Honeywell Photography.

English Garden Style

For flowers we were recommended a lady called Lynda Moss who has a studio based in Harrogate. She was totally brilliant and even though I booked my flowers pretty late by wedding standards – and I wasn’t very specific about what I wanted – she came up with something absolutely beautiful and within my budget. I wanted traditional ‘English Garden’ type flowers – so roses, peonies, etc – in cream and pink to match my bridesmaids. My mum also picked a load of foliage and rosemary from our garden which Lynda was able to use in the bouquets and the button holes for the boys.

Flowers1 Petal Pink... Part 2

Mum and I decided to do our own table centres by buying candelabras from the local garden centre and then making little posies to go in one candle holder on each table. Mum made the posies the day before and then we set them out on the morning of the wedding with little bows and luggage labels to tell people which table was which…

Relaxed Photography

I found Rebecca Honeywell online. I was in London at the time and she was in Yorkshire so I chose her purely on the photos she had on her website which were quite informal and stylish – exactly what I was looking for.

It turned out Rebecca had actually done a good friend of mine’s wedding the year before….… View the full post.
