You know what makes me smile? Post-ceremony portraits. The undeniable joy radiating from their newlywed faces as they walk hand-in-hand relishing their new titles is enough to make me giddy. And this sweet duo? Well, one look at this gallery from the lens of Dominique Bader and you’ll see just what I mean.

From Dominique BaderThis wedding took place in a beautiful Georgian hotel in the historical town of Rye, in Sussex, England; famous for its cobbled streets, antique shops, and beautiful architecture. The wedding ceremony and reception were held in the light filled ballroom of The George in Rye hotel, which is beautifully decorated with duck egg blue wallpaper, traditional paneling, and beautiful chandeliers. The venue has a cozy and intimate feel whilst retaining the classical and timeless qualities of the Georgian period.

From the beautiful Bride…The inspiration for our day was to keep things contemporary, yet classic and elegant. We wanted to be able to look back at our photos in years to come and have no regrets about our choices. Our wedding day was a true reflection of us as a couple and we made sure to stick to this value throughout the planning. I wanted to work with great suppliers who shared our vision and in whom we had the confidence to deliver great results. When it came to picking the venue, we considered that most of our guests were from out of town and we felt that the charming town of Rye with its cobbled streets, close to where I grew up, would be perfect for them to enjoy a long weekend away. We fell in love with the beautiful light and airy Georgian ballroom with its exquisite silk wallpaper and glamorous chandeliers at The George in Rye and instantly knew it was the venue for us. I could imagine the room filled with white flowers and the sound of glasses clinking. Our wedding day was, in our opinion, a combination of great food, unique music, an abundance of fragrant florals, timeless decor, and a relaxed atmosphere in which to share the love with our family and friends!
