From the minute I met Siobhan and Tom, I realised what a relaxed, happy couple they are. This reflected in their big day amongst their large group of family and friends. It was an honour to work with Siobhan who is a talented photographer herself shooting fashion and commercial work. They celebrated their wedding day in the beautiful English countryside where I was a Grove hotel luxury wedding photographer. 385 Guests enjoyed the warm May sunshine in the manicured gardens and pools of The Grove. The venue has stunning views of the rolling green hills of Hertfordshire beyond.
Siobhan looked absolutely stunning in a bespoke version of the ‘Bluebell’ wedding dress by Temperley Bridal. This stunning wedding dress has a chic layered skirt and an exquisite lace bodice. She wore nude suede ‘Mermaid’ sandals by Sergio Rossi embellished with crystals. Siobhan’s 6 bridesmaids looked angelic all in white Temperley London halterneck, empire-line dresses. The groom and groomsmen all wore black tie made by Harris and Howard’s bespoke tailoring.
Beautiful, soft romantic pinks and creams dominated the floral design by Wild At Heart. Dramatic roses and hydrangea were displayed in over-sized silver vases and large pink and cream peonies and roses in the bridal bouquets. The wedding design was given a contemporary edge with the clear perspex invitation ‘cards’ by Cutture. There were also clear glass plates, perspex candle stands and perspex chairs.
The soft pink florals continued in the cake design by Crowthers Cake Studio with a 6-tier cake adorned with sugar roses in an asymmetrical style.
The ceremony took place in an open-sided white marquee on the grounds of the Grove hotel luxury wedding venue. The bride walked down the aisle to a string quartet. Guest enjoyed delicious canapés and flowing champagne outdoors. Afterwards guests found their heart-shaped pink escort cards hanging from white ribbons on a row of small trees lining the reception room. The wedding meal was lit by an abundance of romantic white candles. Guests enjoyed a three-course meal with coffee and petit fours. Everything about this decandent, luxury wedding oozed elegance and style.
The bride and groom opened the dancefloor to Aretha Franklin’s ‘You Send Me’. The party really got going with an energetic Irish band after who kept the dancefloor full all night!
