Inspiration

We wanted to capture just how beautiful small weddings or elopements can be, focusing on the details and those special moments shared by the couple. When planning your day, it’s about you as a couple, filled with everything you love. We wanted to make sure to have photos filled with intimate moments, romance and most importantly fun! Even though elopements and small weddings are of a smaller scale, this doesn’t mean that the celebrations have to be too. Pops of colour in wedding outfits, beautiful florals, personalised vow books and having fun with a few smoke bombs, can all contribute to making your day one to remember forever.”

Venue

“Showcasing British florals, we had to have a venue that showcased the British countryside. Crabapple Barn set in three acres of beautiful land and a quarter acre lake with its own rowing boat is surrounded by uninterrupted views of the South Downs, it was a perfect choice. The barn itself is filled with quirky detail, warming fairy lights that create a romantic and intimate atmosphere and again those fantastic views.”

The Details

The ceremony took place outdoors with stunning far-reaching views of the South Downs & the beautiful lake as our backdrop, with hay bales seating. Our gorgeous real-life couple were due to get married three months earlier to the day but had to postpone their wedding sadly like so many other couples this year. Having them part of this shoot and seeing them say their vows, made everything feel really special.”

“The outdoor ceremony space featured Crabapple Barn’s birch arch to which colourful pillars of seasonal flowers were added. All the flowers used were homegrown, British cottage garden style flowers freshly cut from beds ready to use. The reception was framed by stunning floral pillars. A styled sweetheart table was draped with ditsy floral vintage fabric and vintage cut glassware and dinner plates. Just because you plan to elope or have a small wedding, you do not have to miss out on the cake! Pressed seasonal flowers were used on a beautifully rustic buttercream two-tiered wedding cake, smaller naked sponge and buttercream carrot cakes and shortbread biscuits into the wedding cake.”

“The bridal separates bought a pop of colour; a long-sleeved ivory lace cropped top paired with a mauve coloured full tulle skirt. The beautiful earrings and headband are hand made from preserved hydrangea petals and matched perfectly. Our bride’s waved hair featuring intricate woven plaits and show-stopping statement makeup were styled to create a relaxed bohemian look. For the evening look, we went slightly edgier with a stylish bespoke hand-painted leather jacket”

“To complement the pops of colour and playful pattern, our groom definitely stood out. We curated a smart but fun look including a handmade colourful bowtie, buttonhole, and pocket square.”
