Regular blog readers might recognize Becca and Phil from their engagement session earlier in the year (where Becca wore the most amazing red dress!) and from spending the afternoon with them I came to realise what a wonderfully relaxed and warm, fun & friendly couple they were.
Their wedding was a heartwarming experience, that took place at the wonderful Gardens at Yalding, a new venue for us – combining the cracking outdoor spaces of somewhere like Nymans with the indoor space of venues like Farbridge, Grittenham or Bury Court.
They had a gorgeous teepee set up, which was filled to the absolute brim with beautiful details, personal touches and an incredibly welcoming bunch of friends, family & guests – I always have a great time at weddings and as part of my blending in, I pretty much end up becoming a ‘friend with a camera’, but their family and friends made it so easy – my face ached from all the laughter and smiling for sure! From hanging out with Becca’s dad while he put the finishing touches to the decor, organizing group shots with the assistance of the lovely Ludavine, to sharing a lovely meal with their friends the day was a beautiful one to be a part of.
This was my first The Gardens Yalding Wedding and I hope I get back there again really soon, it’s a pretty new venue – but its such a perfect spot for a wedding, Becca and her bridemaids got ready upstairs at the venue – as Becca is a professional makeup artist – I knew the morning would run like clockwork, and it did! Of course, Becca did her own makeup and looked amazing! Her friend James Blaquiere did everyone’s hair to absolute perfection. Truly a dream team!
Anyway, enough of my rambling – onto the story… (Stay right to the end for some epic sparkler action!)
