Claire and Nico's colourful, outdoor wedding in Buckinghamshire was a joy to photograph.
Their wedding recently appeared on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings blog and it made be remember that I hadn't blogged it yet and also, what a FANTASTIC day it was.
Laid back wedding
Everything about their wedding was incredibly relaxed and laid back and very personal to them. Although they had lots of guests it had a wonderfully intimate vibe to the day. They got married in the park at the end the road where Claire's parents live. The park has a pavillion which worked well as a bar and games room for the kids (and, well, adults too!)
Vintage wedding dress
Knowing there would be lots of children there, Claire and Nico arranged face painting, and colouring and activity corners for the kids which worked a treat! They also planned games in the park for adults; rugby, skittles and Boule (Nico is French!) The ceremony was held under a tree in the corner of the park and Claire and Nico walked together towards their guests which was a beautiful touch.
Claire's gorgeous vintage looking dress from actually from ASOS. If she hadn't have told me I would never have guessed that! She also made her beautiful bouquet, after months and months of collecting buttons it finally came together and is stunning.
Relaxed and personalised wedding
The rest of the day was filled with playing games, chatting, wonderful speeches, a First Song (not first dance) from Claire and Nico kicked off the night and an amazing friend's band played out the rest of the evening. This was truly how to do a relaxed and personalised wedding.

After the wedding Claire sent me this message - which was so lovely to recieve.
We just wanted to say a big heartfelt thank you for taking such beautiful pictures of our wedding day. We love how they truly capture all the colour and the happy, relaxed atmosphere of the day. And all the fabulous facial expressions! Everything so beautifully presented and the chocolates will go down a treat . Thank you so much for everything. It has been our absolute pleasure to have you as our wedding photographer and we really enjoyed getting to know you a little over the last few months.
