What Made Our Day Unique
As wedding photographers we go to 50 to 60 beautiful weddings a year so wanted a unique wedding. We got married in Patrick's parents garden and had the reception within their converted barn. Our closest friend Matt conducted our very emotional ceremony. This was followed by music, games, magic, lots of drinks and homemade food and lastly, an outside first dance and night-time confetti. Hollie also walked down the aisle alone and we had no bridesmaids or groomsmen – we didn’t go for many of the usual traditions, instead, having a handfasting ceremony and a really relaxed and fun day overall.
Wedding Under £5000A wedding for under £5000 it hardly seems possible does it?! Well, when you have wedding experts Hollie and Patrick a.k.a. M and G Photographic in charge of the budget and planning anything is possible! And, what a fine day they planned too. Keeping their intimate nuptials very much a family affair, exchanging vows at Patrick's parents home, DIYing bunting and baking cakes. All whilst looking absolutely amazing, and taking care of their 10-month-old son too.
Inspiration & Styling
Relaxed, boho, floral and colourful was the order of the day! We really wanted a colourful and beautiful wedding to match the beautiful surroundings of Patrick's parents' gardens. Hollie handmade reams and reams of strip bunting and sewed so many triangles for traditional bunting too. She then learned macrame and made so many macrame hangings and vase decorations and also customised her wedding shoes. It all added to the personal feel we wanted.
