“Figtree Wedding Photography were AMAZING. Alice and Camilla’s positive energy was contagious and every photo they took was so organic and natural which was really important to us. I can’t recommend them enough to future brides and grooms.” Elisha + Michael
Tell us a little about your day…
Our wedding day began with a beautiful sunrise and breakfast with our bridal parties and family. It was a really calm and chilled out vibe which I loved! I walked down the aisle to the tune of Video Games by Lana Del Rey and our ceremony was both funny and heart-warming with Michael and I reading our own vowels which included funny stories about our first date and most annoying habits. The ceremony was followed by canapes and drinks in the beautifully lit garden behind the reception venue. Our reception was everything that I had dreamed of. When the doors opened to guests they were blown away by the fairy lit space and hanging floral installations. We had an amazing dinner and danced our first dance to Ordinary World by Green Day with the most important people in our lives.
What was your fave part or moment from your day?
The speeches were my favourite part of the ceremony, filled with tears and laughter – particularly during Michael’s speech where he told my Mum that he had intended to film a speech with my Grandfather before he passed away but we unfortunately lost him before he got the chance. It meant so much to her and our family.
Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Planning a wedding can be such a whirlwind. While it can sometimes be all consuming and exhausting the actual day is over in the blink of an eye. Appreciate the planning time as it’s so exciting and you’ll look back on that time later and yearn to experience it all over again.
