Happy Friday evening readers! Here in Yorkshire I’m fairly sure we have now had sunshine for more than two consecutive days, which surely must make it almost summer, right? Today’s lovely wedding is one that reminds us exactly what the British summer is all about – the smell of crushed grass under your feet, cider and the all important wellie throwing. Meet Laurie and Will, both retailers for Will’s family business, who married on the 11th of July 2015 near Wedmore in Somerset. The couple said their vows at the local church and then hosted their reception at Laurie’s parent’s farm, surrounded by family, friends and their miniature sausage dog, Colin.
Laurie wore the gorgeously ethereal ‘Bunty’ Dress in ivory by Belle & Bunty, which she purchased from Perfect Day Bridal in Bradford on Avon. We adore the flirtatiously British appeal of the Belle & Bunty brand – you can find out more about this fabulous design duo (aka, Hannah, the blonde, and Alice) in our wedding directory, Little Book For Brides.
“I loved the relaxed and simple style of the dress and the beautiful layers of silk. I wanted to look natural but still feel special so the understated quality of the dress was exactly what I wanted.”
Photographer Hayley Savage was the talent behind these wonderful images. I love the freshness of her style and the reportage nature of the photos, with just a few posed shots added in for variation.
“Hayley was recommended to me by a friend who is a wedding planner and she was fantastic. She really listened to what we wanted and what was important to us and was lovely to have around on the day. We didn’t want to spend lots of time having posed photos taken and Hayley understood this and got lots of amazing natural photos. We were so pleased and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.
