Naomi & Glen’s wedding was just so much fun, and so personal from beginning to end. Almost everything you see was borrowed, gifted or hand made or salvaged to create their beautiful day for a budget busting £5k! As you browse the images you might be wondering about the significance of the Kinder egg? Glen proposed by putting Naomi’s ring into a Kinder egg, and carefully putting the whole thing back together- how sweet is that?! And so on the morning, another Kinder egg arrived, containing a love note, and a beautiful antique locket. I think that was when the tears started! Glen had also hand made Naomi the awesome cat hanger for her dress to hang on which just looked ace.
After the ceremony (taken by a family friend) the bride & groom headed off to the reception in the mini that Glen had been restoring. Unfortunately though, it has no fuel gauge, and they managed to run out of petrol on the way- so they made quite a fashionably late entrance! Naomi and a team of friends had done an amazing job decorating the inside of their green & white striped marquee. My favourite detail was the handmade (of course!) ‘All You Need Is Love’ sign, hung from the ceiling along with vintage lampshades. And the fabulous big drinks dispensers- which are now for sale, along with the milk bottles used for the reception drinks in case you’re interested!
Being a photographer herself, Naomi understood that to get the best results you really need to trust your photographer and go with their suggestions- I love the shots of the two of them lying amongst the long grass! Naomi also brought along some smoke bombs to play with for a dramatic & whimsical effect and I love the results! After our shoot, the happy pair danced the night away to a blue grass covers band Menage a trois, who were just brilliant and everyone piled into the DIY instax photo booth.
