I was in touch with Emily quite a bit in the run up to her wedding day, and was really excited to see her get married and to see her vibrant Alice in Wonderland vision come to life.
Rob and Emily met at school (not as children, Emily was teaching and Rob was there on a placement), and are one of those couples that you could be mistaken for having not long got together. The loving glances between them throughout the day (not to mention the look of pure love on Robs face as Emily made her entrance into the picturesque Combe church) as well as the way they would smile while talking about the other was so beautiful to see. The day was filled with love and laughter and really was a perfect day.
It was lovely to see her students waiting for her outside the church, and some of her ex-students were there as waiting staff complete with bunny ears, and her friend made the delicious pie and mash wedding breakfast. In fact, the more people we spoke to on the day it became clear that EVERYONE loved these two, and if there is one phrase I heard quite a lot on the day it was ”that’s just so Emily”. Emily is extrememly creative and was determined to put her own stamp on the day. From the photoboard to the vibrant colourful theme and decor at The Freeland Hall, she did an amazing job, every detail had been painstakingly thought out. She even surprised her new husband by serenading him with a song she had written accompanied by her bridesmaids.
Emilys dad is a sculpter and has a studio affixed to their home, and where Emily got ready in the morning so it was lovely to be able to incorporate this into their day. They also had two of his rabbit sculptures on their awesome cake which was made by her talented friend (and also school bus driver) to incorporate all aspects of the theme.
We also met and had the pleasure of working with the very lovely Russ and Adam from I Do Wedding Films.
Below are a few of our personal favourites from the day.
