The Elvetham Hotel is always a joy to shoot wedding photos and Julian & Julie's day was no exception. The lovely weather, splendid hotel, beautiful grounds, handmade details, cute kiddies, jovial friends and family.....and...not forgetting the v handsome couple....Julian & Julie ! all came together to make magic with the pictures !
All the guests had been invited to design and make an individual flag for the yards of bunting that decorated the Conservatory and Garden Room, which was a lovely touch. Julie had also done some stitch craft for the ring cushion, table names and other details.
The turquoise of the bridesmaids dresses, chair sashes etc was also picked up in some of Julie's grandmother's brooches used to cleverly off set the orange and cream flowers of the bouquets.
Their ceremony took place in the stunning Oak Room with the reception out and about in the gardens and lawns. A beautiful string quartet filled the air with sounds as we took shots here and there. After a sumptuous meal, dancing took place in the Morning Room, where its hard not to stare at the ceiling because of the amazing paintwork & gilding, but I managed to stay focused to capture the couple's first dance. We concluded pictures with the sunset.....a lovely wedding day
