We're not sure what was more dazzling about this intimate summer wedding, Victoria's colourful bouquet or her nonstop smile? Either way, we can't help but feel the love and joy radiating from these two. From the classic church ceremony to the sun-drenched garden party vibes at recommended venue Iscoyd Park, Victoria and James's day was dreamy from start to finish. Despite only having 30 guests, this was a wedding to remember, and if the romantic couple shots in the meadow don't get you all fuzzy inside we don't know what will.

"The intimacy of the number of people meant we could speak to everyone who was there which was lovely! It also enabled us to really push the budget on everything else."

Victoria & James


After tying the knot at a church in Chester, Victoria and James chose the gorgeous Iscoyd Park as their reception venue. Just one look at the beautiful couple portraits in the grounds should tell you why. They also provided the food (and the champagne...) which made planning that much easier.


The vibe of the day was colourful chic, marrying together the bride's beach bum vibes and groom's smart side. Victoria's colourful bouquet and vibrant floral arrangements were full of life and created a fun vibe to the day. Not to mention the cake... having cute floral details is one thing, but the personalised bride and groom figurines are a whole other level!

Victoria wore a stunning floor-length veil with beaded detail to match her Justin Alexander wedding dress.

"My favourite moment was walking into the church and seeing my man with a huge smile on his face! We exited the church to the Indiana Jones theme tune which we always wanted. It makes you want to walk tall with a big smile and think of the future."


If we can learn anything from Victoria and James, it's that an intimate wedding can still be the best day you can imagine! (Also that beaded veils are a thing and we should definitely invest...). If the glorious grounds caught your eye, then we've got plenty more Iscoyd Park weddings to inspire you. However if the colourful bouquet got you all starry-eyed, this flower filled marquee wedding is all your floral dreams come to life. Oh also, it features a dog wearing a flower collar. Don't say we never treat you!
