Louise & Martin { English Country Garden Wedding }

I design and make a little bit of silver jewellery and it’s how I came to meet Louise almost three years ago as she works for herself in the Jewellery Quarter as a jewellery designer and silversmith. (have a peek at her website here. Louise & Martin had decided to have the reception in the garden of her Mum’s cottage in Shropshire. When I arrived I decided to have a sneak peek in the marquee they’d put up for the day and it looked incredible. Me and Lucas were absolutely blown away by the details and effort that the couple had gone to. Louise had made bunting that hung from the roof and individually sewn napkins for each guest. The tables were decorated with jars of sweet peas and peonies and each table setting had a vintage cup and saucer. Paper lanterns and checked tableclothes completed the rustic country feel. It was such a beautiful and warm occasion, I loved how they had afternoon tea instead of a wedding breakfast, I loved how they ended this with a Pub Quiz, loved the Apalacian Dancers that got the evening off to a start and finally I loved how they rejected a traditional first dance for a group Ceilidh. Louise and Martin have such a wonderful circle of friends and family around them and it was a very heartwarming occasion and I feel very privileged to have been a part of it in documenting it for them.
