We were delighted to host Emma and Chris’ micro wedding just days before Christmas. With a slight chill in the air but with some lovely winter sun this small wedding was filled with elegance, love and emotion with a touch of Christmas sparkle too.
2020 was not, of course, an easy time for anyone to plan their wedding but Chris and Emma decided to make the most of the situation and planned a small wedding ceremony with their beautiful children and close and family all playing a special part.
Emma looked stunning in her sequinned wedding gown with gorgeous kimono sleeves. She was accompanied by her bridesmaids who wore gold sequinned gowns and flower girls who wore the prettiest cream dresses. Chris wore a three piece suit with the couple’s boys wearing matching mini versions but then they had a very important job – to accompany Mum down the aisle!
Whilst this was a micro wedding, Emma and Chris still wanted to marry surrounded by beautiful flowers and decorations. We were delighted to decorate our Ceremony Room with large arrangements of dried flowers and foliage in shades of whites, golds and olive greens. Emma’s florist created beautiful bouquets for Emma and her bridesmaids in similar shades and the boys wore complimentary boutonnières.
After the ceremony, it was time to capture some amazing photographs and film of Emma and Chris and their family in our gardens and grounds. As a small wedding Chris and Emma were able to spend extra time on couple and family shots which is not always possible with a traditional wedding.
There were so many special touches included in this micro wedding. Emma, who owns Gatsby and Grey Candles , blended a special fragrance for some bespoke candles which were placed around the venue. When smelt again this fragrance will rekindle memories of their special day – how wonderful!
With many congratulations again to Chris and Emma and wishing you a lifetime of love, health and happiness!
