There’s too much to say about this wedding. I couldn’t wait to look through the photos, and just loved reliving the day looking through them. Louise and Rich’s wedding day was like a fairytale. Louise looked like an ethereal woodland princess with her long beautiful dark hair and flower crown, beautiful vintage lace gown and ruby lips. Rich also looked pretty amazing in his green and navy plaid suit, with the groomsmen wearing alternate dark green and navy suits to match.
Louise and Rich got married at one of my most favourite venues, Furtho Manor Farm which really is a blank canvas for those creative souls who have a good eye for detail. And they really transformed it into something magical. Large bulb lights draped the ceilings, with huge white flowers and green foliage entwined in wicker shapes hanging from inside the barn. Rich had a 'Roscoe's Bar' sign made for above the bar as a token for their son, Roscoe, which later was lit up in the evening. He also had made these amazing rustic doors, which started off closed, and later were opened for the ceremony to let the bridal party walk through. Even hash tagged #thesalmonwedding. On the other side of the doors were hay bales and white roses, with the spectacular view of the lake down below.
Guests arrived early for some pre-ceremony drinks with the guys and enjoying the beautful day and grounds, it felt so relaxed with everyone just hanging out and catching up. The bridesmaids arrived a bit later, and I was very much in a 'wow' moment when I saw them all in their simple, whimsical white dresses and flowers in their hair. The whole feel of the day just tied together beautifully.
Seeing Louise and Rich’s faces when they saw each other for the first time was so emotional, Rich waited with Roscoe as the flower girls and bridesmaids entered through the doors, followed by Louise and her dad. In that moment you could see that they only saw each other. The ceremony was beautiful with such wonderful readings from their friends, and afterwards everyone basked in the super hot sunshine for drinks and enjoyed the beautiful land around them. Food was good. Really good! I love a BBQ and this one was so yummy I practically inhaled it! And instead of a wedding cake - Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. Oh yes! Followed later by paella and freshly made pizza to order! This really was one of the coolest weddings I have been to. The first dance was traded in for a mass gathering with everyone on the dance floor really getting down with some serious beats. Louise and Rich really made this wedding their own, making it relaxed, beautiful, and unforgettable.
