Sophie & Antonio had a classic black tie wedding at Doddington Hall and Gardens, a traditional English country house wedding venue in Lincolnshire. On the day, Sophie & Antonio were so full of joy they were just cool, calm, and collected the entire day! They were all about having fun and not taking anything too seriously. Capturing the emotional first-look moments, epic champagne-popping photos, and gorgeous golden hour portraits, was Recommended supplier, Lee Daniels Photography.

Doddington Hall and Gardens wedding in Lincolnshire

Brides and grooms-to-be hear this all of the time, but you have to live and breathe the planning process - only do what feels right to you. A wedding can cost a lot of money and time and you need to be happy with all of the decisions you make, otherwise, it feels like a day for everyone else.

Doddington Hall and Gardens

Sophie & Antonio married at Doddington Hall and Gardens, a traditional English country house, and so they wanted the styling to reflect the venue. Antonio is Spanish and they tried to incorporate his culture into the wedding where they could. The couple had Sonnet 17 by Pablo Neruda read at their ceremony in both Spanish and English. The groom and groomsmen wore black velvet suits and the bridesmaids were in mismatched satin bridesmaid dresses, so they could all wear something in a style they liked.

In order to make their wedding more sustainable, Sophie & Antonio also included faux wedding flowers! They had faux flowers and greenery, which they created in the few weeks leading up to the wedding. Sophie & Antonio repurposed their wedding flowers and they now sit in various places around their house. Some are also being used in a friend's wedding!

Our photographer, Lee Daniels, (and our second photographer) really stole the show. We have received so many compliments about them both since the big day and still do 6 months on!
