A glorious summers day for the wedding of Amy and Adrian at Eastington Park. They couldn’t have picked a more perfect day for their wedding day. The sun shone, their guests smiled all day, the venue was fabulous, and it was a really really good day!
Amy and Ade had chosen the stunning blue colour to be woven throughout their wedding day. From the flowers, to the suits, to the details. One of the things I loved about this family focused day was the ‘in memory’ table names. All named after relatives who were no longer with us. It was as if they were each hosting a table at the wedding breakfast. Something I’m sure they would have relished if they were with us on the day.
Amy and Ade had also chosen to have Marryoake on their wedding day. I can’t hear ‘Footloose’ without smiling now.
Here are a few of the photographs from their Wedding Story… Enjoy…!
An absolutely stunning August day at Eastington Park!
Our Groom Adrian dressed in a dapper blue suit with complimentary buttonhole.
#TeamGroom! You may well also recognise one of the ushers… Richard (far left) married the gorgeous Emily at Ellenborough Park and I was delighted to be their photographer too. Click here to see their Wedding Story.
Meanwhile Amy was in the Bridal Suite with the girls getting ready…
Nikki’s Notes… I loved these blue wedding shoes! Just a little pop of colour beneath the hem of a bridal gown is a real wow factor. Go bold!
Amy and Ade had opted for an outdoors ceremony and in this weather it was just perfect!
Nikki’s Notes… Top Tip; wear sunscreen if you are a bridesmaid or bride on a wedding day and the weather is like this! Something like P40 sunscreen which sinks into the skin. Apply it before putting your dress on. Its what we wear when photographing summer weddings and it works a treat!
Under the shade of the gazebo Amy and Ade exchanged vows…
Group photographs completed we then snuck off to take their ‘official’ wedding photographs.
I love it when our couples want to inject some fun into their wedding photographs!
We then headed off to the Secret Garden, a walled garden hidden away with dappled light and some cool shade.
As we were off taking their bride and groom portraits their guests relaxed on the lawn with chilled drinks. Either enjoying the sunshine or taking full advantage of the shade the huge trees provide.
Hahahah now there is a story behind this! One of the shots for their Marryoake before their receiving line!
Nikki’s Notes… You do get some cracking shots during a receiving line but it can add a good 30-45 minutes to your plan. Something to consider if you want to do this.
We remember Enid, Reg, Molly, George, Sidney, Jackie, and Mike. I think they would have approved of such a fabulous day!
But first the speeches…!
Amy and Ade have the loveliest doggy called Buster! However Buster is also very friendly and bouncy so he was on his holidays that day. Amy and Ade were determined to bring him into their day and so had their wedding cake designed to feature their beloved Buster!
Nikki’s Notes… We did the confetti throw after dinner when it was a little cooler. Did you know that he word confetti translates from Italian as ‘sweets’. Imitation sweets were made out of plaster and thrown over married couples along with flowers, petals, grains and rice. This mimicked the sowing of seeds to bestow prosperity and fertility for the newlyweds. So you can throw confetti at any time of the day and of course if makes for a fabulous photograph!
Amy and Ade also had a fun vintage photo booth for their evening reception…
Oh my goodness, this image below…! I love it! This is Ade’s awesome Mum with the Marryoake camera filming herself whilst spinning round. The footage is brilliant. CLICK HERE to see their Marryoake (Ade’s Mum is about 02.23 in…!)
All too soon it was time for their first dance and the evening party to begin…
What an incredible day! #TeamNKP loved being a part of this wonderful day! Many congratulations Amy and Ade.
