Sunflowers, forget-me-nots and guitars
How on earth could we forget this day? The day Emma and George tied the knot; from start to finish it was utterly great to be a part of. First off, there was a stunning location to have an outdoors wedding, followed by a wonderful location to hold a party, which just happened to be full of talented musicians. George himself being a top session drummer for artists such as Rag’n’Bone Man, Eminem and Birdy and his Best Man a Guitarist with The Hoosiers you can imagine the standard of music was amazing.
The morning had us hanging her beautiful vintage lace wedding gown in an apple tree, as the glorious sunshine beamed down on unusual bouquets of sunflowers and forget-me-nots. Her hair swept back in a timeless up-do and make-up naturally done. Surprise presents were revealed and saw a gorgeous vintage black jaguar arrive to escort the brides party to the stunning venue of which was Two Woods.
Let me set the scene….. A woodland scene, of gigantic redwood trees, fit for a fairytale, with the hauntingly beautiful sound of a lone guitarist echoing through the forest, as the bride drifted down the long isle linking arms with her father, towards her eagerly awaiting husband to be, who was perfectly suited and booted for the occasion. After vows full of promises hopes and love were exchanged, the bride and groom were kissed with the petals of dried flowers as confetti was thrown with joy and pink smoke grenades filled the air in a dazzle of colour, all the while sunshine flooded through the trees capturing the moment in the most natural of spotlights… this scene (as beautiful as it may be) was set to change as the Two Woods was exchanged for South Stoke Barn and the party began..
After rounding up guests for some lovely group photos we entered this wonderfully adorned interior and took our places for some speeches. Loud laughter and giggling soon filled the barn and the occasional emotional tear rolled down various cheeks, some incredible video messages were played for the well wishing of the new happy Bride and Groom.
Placed on the tables came the sharing platters of delicious food, as freshly made burgers and hotdogs were served from the caterer outside, once food was eaten we stole emma and George for a frolic in the fields and captured some easily stunning shots of the couple alone amongst the grass and clovers. On our return we witnessed the cutting of a simply gorgeous cake quite perfectly decorated with edible flowers and a first dance that flowed so seamlessly to the sound of another talented guitarist.
Murdoch’s Crazy Eyes took to the stage and did an amazing set to a crowd of all ages whom were all up dancing and having fun. Later on in the evening, as if this wasn’t going great enough, the Groom, Best Man and various other extremely talented guests took to the stage in what can only be described as the formation of a ‘super band’ and blew us away with a set of their own..
So I repeat ‘how on earth could we forget this day?’
Forget-me-nots have never been more appropriate.
We were truly honoured to be a part of it
