Erin & Jonny opted to have a very personal wedding day to celebrate their marriage. With a church blessing conducted by Erin’s Mom, followed by a marquee and garden wedding at the groom’s parents home. The next door neighbour casually offered his lawn to host their wedding marquee, and it all worked out beautifully.
Erin is originally from America, and her family & friends flew in to share in the celebrations. Many of them were excitedly chatting about what they’d seen so far in the UK, which was so lovely!
Here are some highlights of their wedding day….
Helen from Bel’s Flowers provided the amazing peony & rise bouquets, as well as the other floral arrangements on the day.
Erin’s dress came from BHLDN – Anthropologie Bridal in America, and was a stunning lace dress with lots of unusual detail.
The service was really personal, lead by Erin’s Mom, and Jonny’s uncle performed his own reading.
Once the ceremony was over, it was a short walk back to the garden for the relaxed celebrations to begin.
Their fabulous semi-naked cake was baked by The Master Cakesmith and adorned with fresh peonies and roses.
The centre of the marquee had a real talking point, a huge fresh floral chandelier created by Helen from Bel’s Flowers.
I thought it was such a lovely idea to serve scones, jam and cream for the dessert. Erin & Jonny were kind enough to include me in their meal and I was involved in a little debate about what goes on first, the jam or the cream, as we were instructing the American half of the table on how to construct their scone. It’s jam, obviously!
After some moving & funny speeches, it was time for everyone to relax and enjoy the gardens. Erin & Jonny took some time out for some relaxed portraits in the late afternoon sun.
How AMAZING is that light!?!?!
In the evening, the couple invited more guests to enjoy a chilled out garden party in Jonny’s parents garden.
Big congratulations to Erin & Jonny on their marriage!
Thanks so much for allowing me to share your special, very personal wedding day.
