Hollie and Reid’s Suffolk wedding was pretty much perfect. When the bride is features editor for You and Your Wedding magazine you expect nothing less! (And in light of Hollie’s job, it was huge compliment to be asked to capture her big day!) Being immersed in the world of weddings, I knew Hollie would have an abundance of gorgeous ideas and the day would be filled to the brim with pretty details and creativity, and it was wonderful to see her creative vision come to life!
The wedding took place at Easton Grange, a beautiful light barn venue in the Suffolk countryside. The colour palette was a gorgeous pale mint, soft pink and gold, with French inspired details – Hollie and Reid met in France – and cute canine décor – a nod to the couple’s adorable sausage dog Darcy. There were gold-dipped feathers, an epic cake (made by Hollie’s amazing Mum!), sequin chevron table runners, a macaron tower, beautiful blooms and a hand-made ferris wheel filled with sweet treats (made by Hollie’s talented Dad!).
Hollie looked absolutely breathtaking in the dress – Ohhhh the dress! A stunning Peter Langner creation with flower detail, a soft pink sash and beautiful matching veil. Reid was every bit the handsome groom in navy and the bridesmaids looked gorgeous in soft pink. Aside from the aesthetics, I was struck by the love and laughter and tears and joy and sense of family that was so evident throughout the day. The ceremony was poignant and personal, the food delicious (thank you!!), the speeches eloquent, moving and entertaining, including a speech from the bride herself. I was so touched by so many moments in the day, and shed a tear on more than one occasion.
The wedding ended with a fabulous evening party, with an incredible choreographed first dance – featuring a lift and a confetti canon – a packed dance-floor, amazing live singer, and later on a beautiful father-daughter dance. More tears! What a wonderful day – and such an honour to be a part of it :)
