Love is patient, love is kind, love never fails was the inscription on Janice's personalised veil which seems to encompass this Summer wedding and Janice and Derek's love for one another to perfection. They started married life as they mean to go on, side by side. Travelling in the same car to the wedding ceremony together, walking down the aisle together, and sitting at a sweetheart table during their wedding breakfast. You can just tell by their smiles they are loving every minute. We're also more than a little bit in love with their flower pressed acrylic signs. Pinning fingers at the ready!

A personalised veil and flower pressed acrylic signs for an English Summer garden party wedding in Richmond.

We both love spending time in the garden during the summer in the UK. We both love the Richmond area and enjoy nature. Therefore we chose The Pembroke Lodge which is situated inside Richmond Park for our English summer garden party wedding.

Janice & Derek

Our photographer, Matt Penberthy was absolutely amazing! He really captured the best moments of our wedding, from getting ready in the morning till the end of the party at midnight. We even had some beautiful shots with the deers in the park! He was also very efficient in photo editing so we were able to admire the photos shortly after the wedding day. Katie Sutton, from 'The Vintage House That Could' also did a fantastic job in making the bouquet and decorating the whole venue, and hand-making all the stationery as you can see from Matt's photos.

Love is patient, love is kind, love never fails.

Be prepared for surprises. E.g. the page boy refusing to walk down the aisle or wild animals running outside your wedding venue.
