Ian & Laura’s day was characterised by beautiful personal moments. That moment when Laura’s father saw her for the first time ready for the church….that moment when both Laura and Ian paused to wipe away their tears of joy during Ian’s speech.
Laura looked a picture in her Lusan Mandongus dress and Jenny Packham shoes. The bridesmaids wore dove grey floor length gowns which worked so well with the delicate pastel colours of Dana Young’s bouquets. Ian looked amazing in his blue flannel suit with tartan waist coat and tie.
They married in the stunning St Peters Church in Bennington. It has one of the longest paths to the church itself, which made for some beautiful vistas in the warm summer light. They travelled to their reception in style in a gleaming white mini, the bridesmaids following in an eggshell blue version.
The gardens at South Farm come in to their own on a day like this. The perfect backdrop for this English country wedding. Laura and Ian, this was a beautiful day – thank you so much for choosing us to capture the memories for you.
