We are leaping across the pond from Canada to the gorgeous hills of the English countryside for our next fete. This pretty wedding was captured by Chloe of Caught the Light Photography and it is quintessential English splendor. We are loving the intimate, laid back feel of this garden party and think you will too. And the guests deserve an honorable mention for their rockin party wear. See all the fancy frocks and country glamour in the gallery.

From the Bride:

We got married on June 4th this year and had our reception at the very pretty Anchor Inn, in “Jane Austen country”, Hampshire in England, where we live. We fell in love with the venue as soon as we saw it. The staff were helpful and friendly from day one. The country pub offered charm and a laid back atmosphere which is exactly what James and I were looking for. It was perfect. The outside space also sold us as we imagined how wonderful it would be if the weather was good… As it happens it was perfect!

Peonies are my favourite and I was lucky they were in season. I wanted the flowers to be relaxed and pretty, they suited the venue perfectly. Charlotte is my mum and has been a florist for over 20 years I left the flowers completely to her as I trust her judgement completely. She did an amazing job and everyone complimented on how beautiful they were. My bouquet was stunning!
