The personality of a wedding takes on some beautiful combination of the bride and groom. This day was elegant, poised and romantic. It was about family, tradition, and these two people, very much in love.
Rebecca prepared at her family home, which had been beautifully decorated with flowers, where family photographs are prominent in every room. She chose to complement her Sassi Holford dress with Diane Hassall shoes, a veil by Phillipa Lepley, and the most elegant pearl necklace, a gift from her father. While I was with the girls, Jake spent the morning with Brandon and his family at a local pub and hotel as they prepared for the day ahead.
They got married at St Mary’s Church in Eaton Socon, the church where Rebecca was christened, and followed their ceremony with a reception in the gardens and barns of South Farm. The gardens, green and lush, cherry trees laden with fruit, flowers in full bloom, set the scene and the sun came out to play just at the right time.
The reception was adorned by soft, elegant arrangements of flowers put together by Rebecca’s mother and her friends. I must say, they did themselves proud. By the river on their Nottingham engagement shoot, I learned of the significance of cupcakes to their story….it was fitting that the favours were small, beautifully crafted cupcakes. They rounded up the celebrations with ceilidh, and danced till the wee hours.
Brandon and Beccy, thank you so much for sharing this time with us. I hope you had a wonderful honeymoon and enjoy every second of remembering your day through these images.
