(Trigger warning: please have tissues to hand.)
Prepare to fall head over heels (and down a rabbit hole) with this English countryside wedding, inspired by the story of Alice in Wonderland. American couple Allie & Justin fell in love with each other at the same time as falling in love with England, so there was only ever one place where they were going to start their happily ever after. Babington House is a stunning venue, and allowed the couple to host a four-day celebration for their friends and family, including a welcome brunch and farewell BBQ, as well as plenty of time to kick back, relax and enjoy the weekend (oh hello Cowshed spa!). With travel having been a cornerstone of their relationship, I love the compass motif incorporated throughout, and can’t get enough of the beautiful blooms, which are playful, wild and whimsical. Loose yourselves in this one, lovelies. It’s enchanting.
When the family home looks as beautiful as bride Sarah’s it really is a no brainer to hold the wedding there. Making excellent use of the stunning gardens and following the ‘English Country’ theme through to the marquee reception with epic hanging foliage garlands and hoops.
Sarah looks incredible in a Rime Arodaky gown, giving the illusion of bridal separates with its cutaway top under the lace overlay. As do her bridesmaids in blush pink dresses from the high street. Keeping with tradition the groomsmen opt for morning suits, and together this wedding party are pure goals.
The wonderful photography skills of Jason Mark Harris were on hand making this collection of images a delight to pore over.
Lainston House is the backdrop for an elegant, sophisticated traditional wedding. We have featured this lovely venue before here. The bride shines in Jenny Packham and the Groom and his Groomsmen look fabulous in morning suits and grey waistcoats from Buckleigh of London.
Everything is connected beautifully, from the brick of the stunning venue and the blush rose gold details in the flowers and stationery. The style of the bridesmaid’s gown, the bride’s gown and the suits compliment each other and remain on the theme.
Jason Mark Harris is an RMW recommended supplier as a member of The List and has captured the day perfectly. In fact, this wedding features other recommended suppliers Dan Dolan Films and Alive Network. We love reading such lovely words about suppliers we chose to list in our exclusive directory if you are planning a wedding you really must stop by.
We always get a little bit excited when we know we’ve got a Jason Mark Harris wedding to share with you, he really does get the loveliest of brides and grooms, and captures every inch of their day with such passion and creativity.
This adorable Summer wedding took place at the couples home in a marquee, all exquisitely decorated in white florals and silver accents with the help of Peri Peri Events. Bride Amelie looks a knockout in a lace Pronovias bridal gown, and the portraits of her and groom Joe under the pergola are just off the chart.
I can’t think of a better photographer than Jason Mark Harris to capture this gorgeous ‘Middle-earth’ wedding. Everything is beautifully atmospheric and rich with a warm colour palette of reds and oranges, all lit up by ambient candle and festoon lights.
Although it is a Lord of the Rings themed wedding, all the decor has been tastefully incorporated. From the fabulous map wedding stationery, to the floral centrepieces, including a Shire Hobbit hole for the top table. Much of the decor was DIY’ed too making it all extra special.
Taking centre stage amongst all this fantasy and splendour are the adorable bride and groom, April and Oliver, who look absolutely perfect in lace and tweed, not to mention besotted with one another. And having loved the process so much, now offer rustic and vintage prop hire through their business, Shire Hire
This incredibly pretty, destination wedding comes with a tissue warning. The emotional first look and outdoor wedding ceremony captures by Jason Mark Harris are absolute tear jerkers. Which is exactly what you want from your wedding photographs.
Then come all the candle light reception pics, which scream luxe. Just like the wedding party attire. Hello there groomsmen in Tuxedos and wowsers bridesmaids and bride in Monique Lhuillier gowns.
The blush pink, pure white and greenery flower arrangements will also have you picking your jaw up from the floor, so get yourself comfortable and enjoy this one lovelies, it’s a goodie.
This at home wedding has hit me right in the feels. From the adorable ‘first look’ between the bride and her father, to the late night celebrations in the beautiful tipi reception. Jason Mark Harris & Harris Films have left no emotion or detail uncaptured.
The blush colour scheme and fashion are off the chart, with the adorable page boys and flowers girls definitely outshining the bridesmaids and groomsmen in their tutus and braces ;), which is a tall order as the bridesmaids are wearing stylish Needle & Thread dresses and the groomsmen dapper light grey suits.
There’s no taking away from how spectacular bride Kara looks though. The bodice on her Anna Georgina dress is absolutely heavenly and I love that she teamed it with an Augusta Jones tulle skirt to match her bridal party.
Now are you ready to swoon and sigh? Thought so.
Get ready for all the feels.
Firstly Bride Imogen’s Pronovias Princia gown and jacket – oh my! Every angle you look at it you can’t help but swoon. The gorgeous button detail, the elegant silhouette and the Bardot neckline of the jacket are just heavenly and Imogen couldn’t look more beautiful.
Next to make your heart race will be the stunning portraits captured by Jason Mark Harris, perfectly capturing the love, breathtaking backdrop of The Haven in Ireland, and more of that exquisite gown. Plus how can I forget the couples gorgeous little girl who almost steels the show she is so off the chart adorable.
You sitting comfortably? Then lets begin.
