Saturday 22 February 2014 - Offley Place

Steven and Emma

Yet another lovely February day! Even the snowdrops and crocus came out for the celebration of Steven and Emma's wedding.

I know that most of my brides wear white (or similar) but it's always a nice surprise when one goes for something different. Emma chose a gold, embroidered gown which was a mix of Indian and 1920's evening gown.

The conservatory was set up with green sashes and homemade decorated jam jars filled with flowers.

The entrance of the flowergirls was funny as Steve had to coax little Eliza down the aisle, however the rest of the ceremony went very smoothly... with a few tears from Emma and some of the guests.

With any confetti shot be aware that you are likely to eat some - and that it gets everywhere!

The jam jars were re-used as table decorations for the wedding breakfast and each table named after special places. During the speeches the groom's dad poured special Polish wedding vodka shots for everyone.

Bride's mum wore a really hot pink hat. This younger guest took a bit of a fancy to it during the evening party before I snuck the bride and groom away for a few final photos on the stairs.
