Are you all missing summer as much as I am? Thought so. With the very cold weather outside I thought it was time to turn up the heat and re-live those amazing, long summer days with this beaut of a real wedding.
Shot by my fabulous and ever-talented sponsor and dear friend, Emma from Emma Lucy Photography, I’ll hand over to Emma to tell you all about the wedding:

“Steph (the bride) is actually a very old friend of mine and we have some mutual friends that are involved in the Secret Garden Party so it stood to reason that she had a festival vibed wedding. Steph booked a photographer for the ceremony and formals so I was able to just enjoy the day. And what a day! Steph and Dave probably still stand as one of the most in love couple amongst my friends – they have something really special and their energy for each other and the life they share is infectious.”
“Their wedding itself was so suited to them: the bridal preparations were in Malmsbury – a beautiful Abbey town in Wiltshire – followed by a beautiful church ceremony in a small village called Little Somerford. After the ceremony handpainted signs led the wedding party to a beautiful garden kitted out for an amazing festival inspired reception.”
“The details of the wedding were incredible – even down to the Moroccan themed food. In the evening there was lots of dancing care of The Baker Brothers – who provided me with much dancing fun in my time in Bournemouth. You must check them out of you’re looking for a band for your wedding – I 100% recommend them and they won’t fail to have your crowd dancing! The bride wore an Ian Stuart gown and wore flats all day which I loved and they had really lovely toilets that they called ‘comfy crappers’. The hats were made by Katy Leicester at Handpicked Vintage“
“Steph had a BBQ the next day where there was an massive buffet all arranged by both sets of parents. Steph also threw the bouquet on the Sunday, she did it twice, once for all the women and once for all the men.”
