relaxed intimate Leicestershire wedding
There is nothing I love more than a wedding done how you want it. If big and glam is your bag then I love it, if small and intimate in a cosy pub is more up street then I love it ever more. To me nothing makes me smile more than seeing two happy people doing things their way, and that is exactly what Ella & James did with their super colourful, relaxed intimate Leicestershire wedding day last summer.
Ella chose to wear a beautiful dress she found on the high street, it was elegant and super comfortable and teamed it with some vibrant accessories including some amazing rainbow shoes! Her bouquet was a super colourful hand-tied rustic arrangement, that suited the day perfectly! The personal touches throughout the day were just lovely; from the hand carved ring bowl gifted to the couple from their church to the cans tied to the back of the couples car featured James’ favourite beverage of choice.
After a warm and relaxed church ceremony the couple drove themselves over to The Grey Lady, in Newtown Linford, Leicestershire for their reception. The had decorated the little pub with gorgeous florals and touches of chemistry paraphernalia as a node to both of their professions. I particularly loved the test tubes filled with little sprigs of lavender. After dinner the couple did a speech together, a lovely touch that I would certainly like to see more of!
We experienced one of the rainiest days for James & Ella’s wedding day, it pretty much rained non stop all day. But this amazing pair did not bat an eyelid, not even when we fully expected to have to wave goodbye to their much antiquated confetti shot. It certainly wasn’t an option as the guests ran from the church huddled under umbrella to keep from getting absolutely soaked. Here is where I am super thankful for my professional camera gear, it handled the rain amazingly and I was able to capture some hilarious moments after church as the guests made a run for it. However, I kept on eye on the weather all day long, and with one little break in the rain we jumped into action and managed a few couple shots in the gardens and the most wonderful confetti shot I have had all year! If you are planning relaxed intimate wedding then Id love to hear from you.
