Spring may still be alluding us – what did we expect ahead of a Bank Holiday weekend? – but that’s no reason not to fill your day with sunshine courtesy of this late-September wedding, which is blessed with blue skies and golden rays. Hot-to-trot couple, Zoe & Jamie, chose the most magnificent venue – RMW recommended The Copse, in Oxfordshire – for their wedding weekend, making the most of the gorgeous gardens, canopied ceremony area and stretch tent reception space with smoke bombs, peacock chairs and a sweetheart table all featuring. Stunning fashion and radiant smiles come as standard, alongside beautiful blooms from the bride’s favourite London florist, Grace & Thorn.
Irene Yap is a legend behind the lens, beautifully capturing epic moments at this festival and feather filled wedding weekend at The Copse in Berkshire. It certainly helps that bride and groom Tara and Ben are ridiculously cool and totally into each other. The love and laughter they share is off the chart and will have you beaming from ear to ear.
The couple envisioned, designed and made all the decorations at their natural stretch tent reception, not without a little help from their family and friends, and not without a good old helping of planning and style from Wedding Planner Jenna Hewitt.
Add a truly stunning bespoke gown, a pizza van, and a dressing up box and you have the makings of one hell of a wedding.
With loved ones often scattered all over the country and world and people working longer hours than ever, getting everyone you love together in one place feels like a real achievement. The best excuse for getting all your favourites together is definitely an amazing wedding celebration so why restrict it to one day?
Ask anyone, and they will tell you one of the highlights of their big day is being surrounded by friends and family. I can still vividly remember a moment on my own wedding day where we walked along the drive and could see all our guests milling about, enjoying themselves. We felt so incredibly lucky to have everyone we love in one place, at one time. Today we’re introducing you to a stunning, laid back venue which prides itself on being the perfect place to gather all of your loved ones together for an entire weekend! A home away from home which has all you could wish for for a unique day, and there’s no rushing around, this is a weekend affair. There’s even really special little extras, fancy playing your favourite film for guests to enjoy? Well you can do that, no problem. Nothing is out of reach at The Copse, which is why we love it so.
I love every single element of this shoot. From the beauty looks, to the dresses, from the flowers to the table scape – everything has been planned and styled to perfection by Jenna Hewitt and captured by Kitty Wheeler Shaw. Incorporating terracotta into a wedding colour scheme is a great idea, it’s an earthy bold colour but adds such a great textural element to things. The table plan on terracotta tiles is absolutely gorgeous!
Stunning venue The Copse are new members of our recommended supplier directory, The Love Lust List, and a fabulous exclusive hire space for a weekend wedding. I’ll pass you over to Jenna to tell you more…
