Never has a red lip looked quite so good, or a couple been just this colour coordinated... not to mention Maria's effortless wedding hair updo with flowers captured perfectly by recommended supplier Cat Stephens! We're in awe at the happiness and vibrancy that just oozes from these two. After their June wedding was postponed due to restrictions they decided to have the most intimate of ceremonies with just two witnesses. Joining the growing number of couples who have decided to embrace a micro wedding and focus on celebrating each other, Maria and Danny have shown us what truly matters!

Elegant wedding hair updo with flowers and bold red lip for an intimate winter wedding

My partner and I both serve in the RAF, and had postponed twice already so we decided to have an intimate ceremony. It was a cold and wet day, but couldn't have been any more magical! With help from my fairy godmothers (suppliers), love truly triumphed over all.

Maria and Danny


Maria was inspired by Christmassy reds and whites for the day, and created a stunning winter wedding look. Topping it all off was a classic wedding hair updo with flowers and a bold red lip by Oxford Wedding. She wore a floaty dress with a saucy split from ASOS (as she's saving her dream dress for next year!). Danny's vintage look with red braces also had us dreaming of different times, and their outfit co-ordination is giving us all the feels.


Due to restrictions Maria and Danny chose to get married at the local registry office. They booked their favourite wedding photographer Cat Stephens and then headed to the gorgeous local gardens after tying the knot for their pictures. Despite the gloomy weather, the photos are breathtaking. Above all, they're proof that a small wedding doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the incredible memories!

Maria and Danny chose to have a small ceremony and hold out for a celebration with family and friends later in the year, showing us you can't restrict love!

My favourite moment was standing hand in hand waiting to walk through the confetti. I realised that we were finally Mr and Mrs after so many years of waiting. Your wedding is about you and the love you share and not about your guests. So try to keep that mindset!
