An English Garden Wedding
A back garden wedding is amongst my favourite wedding types because it combines a personal and meaningful space where everything in the background can be included in the photos, there’s often lots of personal DIY touches, and couples have a lot more freedom to plan their wedding exactly as they like it! Andrew and Sarah got married in Sarah’s childhood home which has a stunning garden her parents horticultural-savvy parents proudly took care of, that also backs onto rustic woodlands. Whilst Sarah got ready in one of the rooms her family helped the wedding planners Blue Bay Events set up the ceremony and reception spaces, with her mum and aunt taking care of the custom green arch.
The weather was really playing up for us, with it being touch and go into the last 15 mins as to whether we could have their dream outdoor ceremony. Luckily we took the risk and got to have the perfect outdoor wedding ceremony! Sarah’s singing teacher performed a few songs, and they completed the ceremony by joining soil from their respective families into one new rose bush that they will then plant in their new shared home together.
After the ceremony they had reception drinks next to the pool with a performance from Porcapizza, a musician who performs of instruments made of random junk objects.
They held their dinner in a marquee with speeches, beer pong and sunshine and rainstorms interlacing the courses!
For their first dance Sarah’s singing teacher performed with her band, and in the middle of their set both Andrew and Sarah got up and sang! For some reason I shoot a lot of weddings with bride and groom singing!
