Oh I love these two!!! I mean, just the coolest, best way to end my wedding season this year with these guys and I am OVER THE MOON!!! When we had our engagement shoot earlier this year I just loved the vibe coming from them. They are just so cool, so funny, and just gorgeous. The day of the wedding and I was counting my lucky stars the rain stayed away because at Chicheley Hall you just HAVE to have a group photo outside the front of the house!! Yes it was super windy with Storm Callum causing havoc but the guests were superstars as they got bustled outside and chased Ashleigh's veil as it blew away!! Rewind a bit and getting ready in the gorgeous light filled rooms, beautiful girls having hair and make up! They all looked gorgeous. Being quite short, I always struggle a bit when thinking of places to hang the dress and with the beautiful huge windows being slightly out of reach, I decided to grab an extra pair of hands to do something more on my level. We dangled Ashleigh's beautiful princess ballgown dress over the balcony overhanging the stairs, and it was worth it as it just looked the bees blinking knees. As I looked over the railing I could see it all coming together, a wall of flowers being sewn together for the backdrop, chairs draped with pearls, and fairy lights strung around the pillars, with an abundance of fresh pastel flowers filling the room. Every detail was breathtaking.
I found Ben outside messing about with the guys and having a laugh, they kept me smiling on the day with their fun and silliness. When it was time for the ceremony, last minute nerves hit Ashleigh but she shook them off and made her grand entrance down the stairs to the amazing ballroom.
Back outside, we found a little shelter from the winds, and got one of the ushers on hand to be our leaf thrower, which ended in lots of laughter! The rest of the day sped by, and as they ate I couldn't resist looking through the photos and was sending Ashleigh some sneak peaks while she sat at the top table.
The winds continued to pick up, but I just HAD to get one final photo outside the house again, all lit up. It took two of us to open the front door and avoid everything in its path getting blown over. Totally worth being windswept for the amazing shot we got.
Everything about this day was perfect. I am so happy to end on such a high, I have had such an amazing year and feel so lucky to have met so many amazing people, and to witness so much beauty and talent and foresight. Ashleigh and Ben, thank you so much for having me xx
