So first up this year is Roman & Freda’s classic english wedding which took place last summer in the stunning gardens of Barnsley House. This venue has been top of our wish list to photograph for some time so we were delighted when Freda got in touch. You may remember their super cute engagement session outside Peggy Porcshen where we got to hear all about their exciting plans for the day including the outdoor wedding, the intimate tea ceremony, Freda’s Temperley dress and the garden reception.
Arriving on the day we were met with rainy skies but this quickly disappeared and we even ended the day basking in wonderful evening sunshine.
We were so lucky to be working with some wonderful vendors on the day including Mark from Mark Brown Films, Jessie from Jessie Thompson weddings, Georgia from Westwood design, who did amazing job with the florals and we were surrounded by beautiful artwork provided by Gemma Milly
I loved what Jessie wrote about the design for the day:
“Roman and Freda hosted an intimate summer celebration in the Cotswolds with their nearest and dearest – a bride with impeccable taste and the sweetest nature, Freda had a vision for her wedding day that was soft and pretty, perfect for the beautiful Manor House and garden setting. When creating the design plan I used scent as inspiration for many details – from wild berries in the florals, to fresh rosemary, lavender and rose petal confetti – even the bridesmaid’s crowns featured fresh herbs” Jessie Thompson
When the day turned to evening the guests were treated to a fantastic meal, cocktails in the garden where Roman & Freda cut their stunning, fig decorated, cake against a backdrop of sparklers and nighttime entertainment provided by the wedding smashers.
We are so happy to have been a part of this wonderful day.
