Lucy + Mathew

The 3rd September was the wedding day for Lucy + Mathew. A few words that spring to mind when I think back to this lovely wedding are… countryside, tweed, feathers, AMAZING flowers, horses and a lot of rain!! The day started with me joining Lucy in her beautiful home with her Mum and bridesmaids. It was absolutely chucking it down, I distinctly remember people talking a lot about the weather and the fact that Lucy was going to be traveling by horse and cart – as you will see from the pictures the weather did not spoil the day one bit and in fact provided us with the most glorious post wedding breakfast lighting I’ve possibly ever seen! The ceremony took place in the local church – St Peter’s in Thorpe Salvin. I met up with Mathew, resplendent in his tweed suit nervously anticipating the arrival of Lucy. She did arrive as planned by horse and cart – with the most beautiful horses carrying her. It was raining but who cares it was covered and there were plenty of brollies!! The service was emotional and heart-felt in one of the tiniest and most intimate churches Ive been in. After the service it was still raining so we all headed to the reception venue of  The Hewett Arms in Shireoaks, Nottinghamshire. At this point I need to mention the flowers by Janice of My Floral Romance – she had spent days creating such dramatic and beautiful displays – the staircase was stunning. Lucy & Mathew arrived and Mathews younger brother helped release some doves -  it was a really touching and personal moment. As mentioned, after the meal the weather was a lot kinder to us as we were greeted by dramatic skies and were able to get the whole wedding party out. This wedding had lots of different notes & and I found it really inspiring x
