Tell us a little about your day…
We wanted our wedding day to be relaxed and fun, and it was everything we had hoped for and so much more. We were living in London while planning the wedding and had a lot of guests travelling a long way to attend, so we didn’t want to miss out on all of cocktail hour. We decided to do some First Look photos and we’re so glad we did. We got some quiet moments together and calmed the nerves before the party started, and also snuck in some photos with our pup Oli.
What was your fave part or moment from your day?
We’d planned for a beach ceremony with cocktails and the dance floor outdoors as well. On the morning of the wedding, the weather forecast was 50/50 but we decided to stick with the plan. The rain held out for our first dance under the fig tree and then it started pouring. Half of the guests ran to the backup dance floor inside but the rest stuck it out under the trees in the rain. The most amazing dance battle kicked off between the inside and outside groups, led by Pete and The White Tree Band. After all of the worry about the weather, the rain ended up creating some of the most amazing memories of our wedding day.
Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Remember what’s most important to you as a couple, it’s your day and after all of the time spent planning it really is over before you know it.
