IF YOU’RE PLANNING A FESTIVAL WEDDING IN BERKSHIRE, YOU’LL LOVE THIS WEDDING FOR INSPIRATION!
On the blog is one of my favourite weddings – probably ever. Am I allowed to have favourites? It’s a bit like choosing your favourite child (NEVER EVER DO THAT – just saying) . I photographed their wedding last summer and looking back now on their photos it’s bringing me so much happiness (especially as it’s cold and grey outside and it’s reminding me that summer will be here again soon…)
Gin, music, fun
Anyway – sometimes you get a feeling about how a wedding is going to be from how the couple explain their day. Sami and Greg totally nailed everything they told me about! MUSIC. Check. FUN. Check. GIN. MASSIVE CHECK! What more does a wedding need?!… It all happened in Sami’s parents amazing back garden – and they roped in family friends – and family – to make this fantastic wedding happen. And everyone played their part so very well – from marquee’s, to bars, and taxi’s – it really a full on family affair.
Sami wore a stunning Grave Loves Lace dress with an unruly vintage veil which had Sami in giggles all day. This pair ooze happiness and fun from their very core and it totally showed on their day. Their day was festival inspired, music loving, special moments, great speeches, glorious details, (LOVED the records on the table), fabulous, unique messages for their guests, and brilliant dancing which even Mick Jagger would envy! Everyone was happy and relaxed and just totally up for a good time.
I had totally awesome photo wing-girl Emma Jean Leivers along with me. She photographed the boys while I soaked up the atmosphere with Sami and got a sneak of the garden and amazing marquee set up. Sami and Greg also hired a Tuk Tuk as their wedding transport – inspired by their travels around Thailand. They used Hello Tuk Tuk – run by the lovely Alex and Lilah – which coupled as a photo booth to capture the fun of the evening.
After the wedding, Greg sent me this message:
I wanted to thank you for Saturday, you were an absolute pleasure to be around and really put as both at ease throughout the day. I know everyone says you should savour the moments when it’s just the two of you – I now understand what they mean! So pleased you managed to drag us away from the dance floor on a couple of occasions for some beautiful photos.
Here’s some of my favourite wedding photography from the day – so enjoy. x
