I am delighted to feature Chris and Laura’s beautiful wedding on the blog today!
It was whilst they were on holiday for their ten year anniversary, having a cup of tea on their hotel balcony first thing in the morning (in their PJs!), that Chris surprised Laura by proposing. They decided on a relaxed, English pub garden wedding, and found their perfect venue at The Barn, Tunbridge Wells for both the ceremony and the reception.
The bride wore a beautiful dress with lace detailing from Alta Costura Bride, and rocked some fabulous blue shoes in contrast! She also wore an incredible flower crown and held a stunning bouquet from Colonnade Florist. Laura’s gorgeous hair and make-up were styled by Louise Large. The groom wore an understated suit with a fitted Harris Tweed waistcoat and a simple sprig of lavender for the buttonhole. Laura and Chris made the day incredibly personal by designing and creating all of the stationery and decorations themselves, whilst Chris’ mother made the cake, which was a stunning display of colour with brightly coloured flowers covering it.
Their photographer, Helen England Photography, captured the day on camera, and she took some truly incredible shots of the happy couple in the gardens around the venue; the natural backdrop of the flowers in the gardens perfectly complemented the theme for the wedding.
Chris and Laura both agreed that the most memorable part of the day for them was seeing each others faces at the end of the aisle, and watching everyone have so much fun, especially their daughter (who was the cutest flower-girl!).
Looking at the photos, you can really feel how relaxed and happy everyone is, especially Chris and Laura! And that is one thing that they said is important for other couples to remember when they’re planning their wedding - ‘Stay calm, keep relaxed, have fun - don’t take anything too seriously!’ Definitely good advice.
Huge congratulations to Chris and Laura, and thank you for letting me feature you on the blog!
