With elegance by the shed load, a very pretty white sailcloth tent and a clean colour palette of greys and greens – this wedding is completely enchanting and beautiful from start to finish. This gorgeous, but shy, couple very nearly didn’t book a photographer, which makes my heart sink – it really doesn’t matter how you feel about having your photograph taken, there’s a photographer out there for you. I promise! Just look how wonderful these images are of Lindsay & Will…Julie Michaelsen’s fine art style captures them and their wedding to perfection. They both look utterly happy, utterly relaxed and completely in love…
What could be more British than tea? And gin? Not much really! And we’re rather partial to both here at RMW Towers. So when Grace from Goose & Berry sent us this gorgeous shoot from the actual Bombay Sapphire distillery, with it’s textural brick walls and charming glasshouse, our hearts skipped a beat.
As well as delicious beverages and a quirky setting, there are also some unique blooms that really make a statement – I’ve never seen those large coral fritillaries used in wedding arrangements before and oh my goodness don’t they look incredible?! The lovely Julie Michaelsen was there to capture all of the detail. And now there’s only one thing left to decide – tea or gin? Well worry not, because here you can have both…
Jamie and Christian spent two years planning their perfect wedding, choosing the stunning Voewood in Norfolk as the setting for their nuptials. A spell of rain the day before scuppered their initial plans of having a ceremony in the woodland, but the centre of the formal gardens with the stunning arts and crafts style house behind them turned out to be the best move they could have made – it looked absolutely phenomenal, and even featured a beautiful greenery adorned fountain backdrop!
From their bespoke watercolour stationery designs to hand calligraphed cocktail menus, every detail looked gorgeous, and came together beautifully thanks to the expert planning and styling of Jeni Amey from Vanilla Rose Weddings and gorgeous floral designs from The Country Garden Florist.
I think Nicola and Ross have taken a slice of the fit pie, in fact the whole wedding party look like they’ve indulged in a portion too. The bridesmaids look absolutely stunning in bespoke pink floral gowns from ASOS, the groomsmen are very dapper in navy suits from Reiss & Ted Baker and bride Nicola looks utterly breathtaking in a lace Enzoani lace gown that fits her like a glove. As a wedding party there’s some serious squad goals to feast your eyes upon, but is it any wonder they all look so stylish when bride Nicola works as a buyer at fashion giant ASOS.
Her attention to detail and creative flair is echoed in the DIY delicate pink & white stationery, adorable signage and hand made soap favours for the guests, with the sweet flower stems in bud vases looking adorable as table centrepieces and making a great focal point on the grand fireplace within the Grade II Fetcham Park reception.
All the deliciousness has been captured by Julie Michaelsen Photography, making this classic pink wedding an absolute delight to view.
Julie Michaelsen Photography is all about heartfelt authenticity, her reportage style is about simple and genuine emotion. Having left a high flying job in finance to pursue her love of wedding photography full time, her enthusiasm and passion is infectious. Her Danish roots have influenced her style immensely, and as a result she produces clean and simple, modern and relaxed photography with a feminine feel.
Referring to herself as a people photographer, she draws inspiration from the meeting of eyes, knowing smiles, gasps of breath and delirious laughter. Capturing these connections between family and friends is what makes her photos a compelling and emotive documentation of love between people. Because when is all said and done, surely that is what matters, that is what lasts…
