Frankie & Tom: Summer wedding at Abbey Hill Mercure, Milton Keynes

Watching the lovely Frankie & Tom get married was particularly special as I know Frankie from way back when at school! They were married at the Abbey Hill Mercure in Milton Keynes, and although their initial plan of an outdoor ceremony wasn’t possible due to the wind they were still able to make the most of a gorgeous Plan B indoors. Frankie walked down the red carpet with a huge smile on her face carrying a pastel bouquet of hydrangeas, nigella flowers and peonies, and I just love all the little excited looks exchanged between her and Tom throughout their ceremony!

After the ceremony, everybody spilled out onto the patio for drinks accompanied by music from a saxophonist, and we sneaked off onto the golf course for photographs. I’m completely in love with Frankie’s Justin Alexander dress, in the most delicate peachy pink colour with tulle flowing everywhere. She paired it with the coolest pair of sparkly Kate Spade Keds.. which I am not afraid to admit I am super jealous of! Tom took a unique twist on the morning suit by pairing his with a grey tweed waistcoat.

After speeches and dinner, they turned the lights down low for their first dance, before inviting their loved ones on to dance with them. Congratulations you two! It was such a privilege to photograph your day.

“Cat was amazing on the day, couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. She was patient, kind and full of bright ideas that will make remembering our wedding even more enjoyable. She took the time to get to know the wedding party, which produced better pictures in my opinion as everyone was comfortable and forgot the job she was there to do. Thanks Cat!”
