Lucy & Alex’s day brought us back to the fabulous Chicheley Hall, which will always hold a special place in my heart as it was the venue for one of my first ever weddings!
Lucy looked so elegant in her strapless Maggie Sottero dress, chic updo and killer red shoes, with the boys looking dapper in their morning suits and teal ties. Alex paired his suit with his dream watch which Lucy wrapped up for him as a wedding morning present – a really wonderful surprise.
They chose the little church in the Chicheley Hall grounds for their ceremony, and I just love the way they kept looking at each other throughout their vows. Everybody managed to keep the big secret under wraps: a surprise ring bearer in the form of a gorgeous husky the pair used to own when they lived in England. It was so thoughtful and there were tears and beaming smiles all over the place!
After the ceremony we took a bit of time out to shoot portraits in the beautiful grounds of their venue, before leaving the two to mingle with their closest friends and family. Lucy & Alex descended down Chicheley’s iconic staircase to cheering guests for dinner, such a dramatic and memorable moment!
Later that evening, Lucy returned the earlier surprise by booking a Frank Sinatra style singer much to Alex’s delight, who got everybody up on their feet dancing. After a beautiful choreographed first dance, we left Chicheley with the music pumping and the disco lights shining through the windows. Congratulations you two!
