Amy & David's wedding day was a vibrant, sunshine filled day from start to finish and filled with beautiful homemade details everywhere you looked. Furtho Manor Farm was the perfect canvas for their day, with its spacious barn that they draped in fabric, fairy lights and ribbon, and the field by the lake where they held their ceremony.
I just love love loved Amy's elegant bridal style, with her Justin Alexander lace overlay dress and Rachel Simpson shoes she is a girl after my own heart! She walked down the aisle with her dad to two friends playing the guitar and violin, with friends and family sat on haybales all around. Amy & David said their vows in front of a spectacular floral arch, decorated by my favourite florist, The Basement Florist, in hydrangeas and Juliet roses.
Whilst the ceremony took place, guests participated in a ring warming tradition, with Amy & David’s wedding rings being passed around whilst the ceremony took place, to have their rings blessed with the love of friends and family - such a wonderful idea!
I'll always remember this wedding day because their wedding portraits had a bit of an unexpected twist when we found a little frog which had jumped inside Amy's wedding dress whilst we were shooting – it was such a funny moment and I’m so thrilled we were able to capture it before he jumped back into the grass!
The relaxed, fun vibe of their day continued in the sunshine with garden games, a barbecue buffet style wedding breakfast, dancing into the night and bubble guns and mini tipis for the children to play in. My favourite weddings have a real focus on not only celebrating love but being fantastic fun for everybody there, and the wonderful Amy & David achieved this perfectly with their day.
Amy & David, I couldn't be more honoured that you asked me to photograph your beautiful wedding day. I wish you every happiness for the future!
"WOW! They are far more beautiful than we ever expected (although we knew how talented you were!) we love them, can't wait to share them with nearest and dearest. You are truly wonderful - thank you so so much!" - Amy & David
