Real Weddings: Rustic Retro

I just love it when I meet a couple who are on the same wave length, you know, when you completely and utterly "get" their style because it's so much of your own. Hayley and Lucas were one of those couples and their wedding was one of those epic days, hidden deep in the Suffolk countryside and full of their own design work. This stylish couple found me through Luella's Boudoir but it's such a stunner I couldn't not share it here. ..

Dress No.1

Craspedia buttonholes-super chic!

Hayley & Lucas designed their invitations

The First Look

You'll notice the brollies, it was windy and a little grey for the best part of the day...

Fresh delphinium petals

The Ceremony

Hayley walked down the aisle to Henry Mancini's Moon River. 

A beautiful ceremony with personal vows. 

The Bridal Party

Bridesmaids in cream. Beautiful.

Charlie and I worked like troopers to get the barn dressed in time!

Sweet Love


Chill out area

Couldn't get enough of these bouquets, with craspedia, daisies, thistles to name a few.

The Cake!
We thought we'd do a couple of "test shots" for Lisa before we opened the floor to the guests.

Styled Shoot
As if by magic the sun came out towards early evening and we got the "magic light" we'd been hoping for for Hayley and Lucas' styled shoot...

The owner of Alpheton Barn just happened to have a Triumph Stag hiding in the shed, so he parked it up for us. The perfect back drop, no? 

Isn't she stunning?

We left them as the sun began to set to continue partying into the night. This wedding was a real joy from start to finish, great guests, fantastic venue and best of all, a happily married bride and groom.

Check out more of Hayley and Lucas' work here and here. Utterly gorgeous.
