Inspiration

Every detail of this Aynhoe Park wedding was thought out perfectly, from the monumental Autumnal flower arrangements, through to the giant balloons and cocktail tower. Even the brides wedding dress could be adjusted from an elegant off the shoulder day gown to a stylish halterneck evening number. The speeches were full of emotion and the golden hour portraits on Aynhoe's grounds are breathtaking. Be sure to sit down, relax and take in all this beauty captured by Emma-Jane Photography.

What Made Our Day Unique

Having the wedding day spread over 3 days allowed this wedding to have a stunning beginning, middle and end. With The beauty of a welcome dinner in the evening, to a jam packed wedding day and a farewell sunday roast with chinese tea ceremoy to end the day the weekend.

Aynhoe Park

Aynhoe Park was the perfect location for this multicultural wedding retreat. The couple were able to host a rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding, as well as celebrate the day after the wedding with an intimate Chinese Tea ceremony and luncheon. They made full use of the luxurious country house, with its eclectic decor, hosting the wedding ceremony and reception in the orangery; enjoying the dining room for the wedding breakfast, and exploring the grounds for those all-important couples portraits. There are even some captures of the couple in the library after the Chinese Tea ceremony.

What Made Our Day Unique

The overall feel of the wedding day had a classic feel, allowing the florals to complement the stunning architecture in Anyhoe park without distracting it. With some autumn colours, designer, Alice and Planner, Claudia, worked with the bride to create some dream suppliers to create a vision. Even painstakingly working the night before the wedding to personally make the wedding favours where guests took home macaroons in boxes. As well as the leftover flowers from the ceremony being then re-packaged up into gifts to take home. Every detail was thought of.

Advice

From a photographers point of view, I loved being able to play with the backgrounds of Aynhoe Park- it really is a photographers dream. But the quick moments when the videographers and myself took the couple out for the final moments of the crisp Autumn sunset and allowed the couple just to be together, saw a lovely moment of a really tight embrace with the sunset in the background. I think this is my favourite shot of the wedding day.
