This stylish wedding in the Northamptonshire countryside is going to get your pulses racing. Captured by the very talented Marshal Gray Photography whose distinctive style and angles have made the historic Rushton Hall wedding venue look contemporary.

Kayleigh & Ian

I’m not sure what I would have done if my own husband had broken his leg two weeks before our wedding but Kayleigh and Ian took everything in their stride and actually made Ian’s injury work for them, crutches and all!

Kayleigh wore the very beautiful Rose frock by Jenny Packham as they said ‘I Do’ at The House Meadow in Kent surrounded by friends and family against the beautiful lake backdrop. I particularly love Kayleigh’s choice of blooms – white roses, blue hydrangeas, gypsophila and lavender – and the candid images that Marshall Gray Photography captured of the littles at this wedding. Come and take a look…

Surfing USA

We wanted an intimate ceremony on the beach, so we were very lucky to find such a great spot. We really like The Surf Club on Miami beach with its historical character for the Dinner & Reception. This location made for the perfect sunset wedding.

Dress To Impress

This was a black tie wedding. The Groom and Groomsmen wore black tuxedos by Calvin Klein. The bride wore a dress from Pronovias and her bridesmaids wore dresses by the Dessy group, individually picked by each bridesmaid.

One of the bridesmaids, Amy Banas is a makeup artist and was gracious enough to do all of the bride’s party makeup.

Special Gifts

My bridal accessories were gifts from my Mother and also I wore a special bracelet that my late Grandmother left me. This was a special gift that my father gave to me right before I walked down the aisle.

We had quite the international wedding party, from Colombia to Vietnam, we were very lucky to be surrounded by people who have touched and influenced our lives.

Golden Accents

In honor of my late Grandmother we wanted to recreate a vintage theme wedding with soft touches of my Grandmother’s favorite colors; blush pinks with gold accents. We also incorporated vintage keys throughout the wedding, from the escort cards to an ice sculpture that spoke to all the “keys” to love.

Till The Break Of Dawn

We had a full band that played music the whole night, with a DJ that would play during any breaks for the band. There was a mix of popular dancing music & more traditional Colombia and Hispanic music.

There was even an authentic Colombian band that came for a portion of the wedding to play a few favorite songs for dancing.

At Last

Our first dance song was ‘At Last’ by Etta James. We had our first dance outside, under 2 palm trees with everyone watching holding sparklers. During the middle of the song, we had set a surprise fireworks show that was on the beach for everyone to see.

If Anyone wants me to, you know – pop over to Miami or anywhere beachy and hot to take some pictures then please do drop me a line… My schedule is surprisingly adaptable for such requests! These images by Claudia Rose Carter and Marshal Gray are amazing though and I can totally understand why you’d consider carting them half way across the globe to shoot your big day when the results are this breath taking.

And to finish with just a few wise words from Mr Will Smith…

Take a walk on the beach, draw a heart in the sand… Gimmie your hand. Damn, you look sexy.

Fantasy In The Forest

Cover-Image

The guests at this wedding must have felt like the rest of the world had disappeared…it’s like time actually stopped and nothing else existed – except for this magical gathering in the forest.

The photography by Marshal Gray is breathtakingly beautiful. Love and happiness radiate from each image. It just shows that after all the options and decisions – the most important thing is celebrating your love with family and friends.

Prepare to be transported to an enchanted land!

The Great Outdoors

Sarah The Bride: fforest farm in Ceredigion, South Wales was the perfect location for us. We began our venue search with a blank canvas, and just knew that we wanted to find somewhere unique, that reflected our personalities. We found the great outdoors with enchanting beauty, and a quirky, vintage yet rustic feel, also fairly unique in what it had to offer.

2013-06-07_0003

Favours From Friends

My make-up for myself and my two maids of honour was done by my wonderful and all round talented friend, Emily Howells, who is beautiful and has a passion for elegant beauty.

My hair was also done by my lovely friend Nicola McRory, secondary science teacher by trade, however also very clever with sculpting hair do’s. She also did the hair for my two maids of honour.

2013-06-07_0004

Make-Up Recommendations

Most of my make-up is Bobbi Brown and I’m a big fan, but we also used Benefit rose tint for lips and cheeks, Urban Decay Naked2 eye shadow palette, Body Shop Lightening Touch around the eyes (03) and L’Oréal Black Lash Architect Waterproof mascara (this was needed), all of which my make-up artist – and now myself – highly recommend.

Bridal Gowns For Bumps

The bridal dress was called Eden by Jenny Packham, chosen before I knew I was pregnant and fortunately for me the design of the dress really complemented a bump. I chose it because of its pure vintage elegance, to me it was simply stunning, and stood out from the hundreds of dresses I had tried.

It was purchased at Eternity Bride in Warrington, they were wonderfully friendly and helpful, with an amazing seamstress for dress alterations (even for an unexpected baby bump!)

2013-06-07_0005

The Groom wore a Harris Tweed jacket which he bought for £35 from a vintage store in Liverpool called Pop Boutique.

2013-06-07_0006

Something Borrowed…

My shoes were from Benjamin Adams and I wore a headband from Glitzy secrets. The pearl bracelet I wore I made from my Granny’s broken pearl necklace. The earrings I wore were my ‘something borrowed’ – from my maid of honour Fiona Thompson (they were her grandmothers).

2013-06-07_0008

Well Dressed

My maids of honour Alana Gaffney and Fiona Thompson, wore cream lace dresses from Debenhams. They also wore beautiful pearl drop ear rings by Pandora, which was there thank you gift.

My two flower girls, (my 2 year old daughter and 3 year old niece) were dressed in ivory Monsoon dresses. They wore a diamanté headband from Monsoon, similar to the vintage style headband I wore, and beaded shoes from John Lewis.

2013-06-07_0009

The Best Men, brother to the Groom, Tom Shooter and best friend John Yates, wore tweed jackets from Moss outlet store in Cheshire oaks. The groomsmen all wore navy trousers from Burtons.

It All Just Fell Into Place

We didn’t really have a colour scheme but we did want vintage, so I guess that was our theme…country vintage; with a fusion of rustic and elegance. I don’t think there was an original idea or theme agenda, it just all fell into place as we found what we loved! Also the venue offered just this, adding bits of our personality with things like the floral bunting and music themed table plan.

2013-06-07_0011

Wild Spring Flowers

The flowers, wow, I was so impressed, they were blooming stunning!!! Again, a close friend did these, Gemma Bithell, an exceptionally talented florist. I wanted ‘spring season’ and ‘wild theme’, and I got that and so much more. As I said to her I couldn’t have imagined better!

2013-06-07_0012

Home Again

The ceremony was a humanist ceremony as we are not religious. It was conducted by my Uncle Rod. We did the legal bit just before the ceremony, keeping it short and sweet.

The procession was to ‘Home Again’ by Carole King. The groom had arranged for some of our amazingly talented friends to play this! It was a wonderful surprise for me. The song means a lot as it was the first song we ever danced to together.

2013-06-07_0013

We had a poem and two readings. The poem was beautifully written and read by my uncle Rod. We did not choose the readings as we wanted our friends to choose. The first reading by a close friend, Angela Griffin, was ‘Union’ by Robert Flugham, this is beautifully sincere and genuine. The second reading was by a close friend Craig Wakerley from ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.’

2013-06-07_0018

Gypsy Jazz

We had The Riviera from Manchester as our band, our guests were very impressed. They played django Reinhardt gypsy jazz style covers of contemporary songs! We thought they were very quirky and unique.

2013-06-07_0014

Our first dance was to Dark Side from the album ‘Scissors in my Pocket’ by Polly Paulusma.

Complements to the Chef

The food was catered by fforest, with an Afternoon Tea for the more formal bit…speeches and toasts etc, followed by an informal evening hog roast. The food was stunning!!! We had complements from all our guests.

The cake was designed and made by another extremely talented family friend, Fiona Durling, the design was based on my dress. The design was a wonderful surprise for us; it perfectly complemented the day, the theme, and the dress. It was so stunning and elegant!

2013-06-07_0016

Designed By Us

Our save the date cards and invitations were all designed and hand made by us with recycled materials. We wanted them to reflect the outdoor, rustic theme, and our personalities.

2013-06-07_0021

The table plan was mainly designed by the groom after we spent hours trawling through record collections.

2013-06-07_0017

We had a DIY photo-booth with a digital camera, but we also had a vintage polaroid camera set up for use so that we could have instant keepsakes that couldn’t be deleted!
