I swear, to my American ears, everything sounds a bit more lovely in a British accent. So my heart melted a little extra wax when the groom made his toast to his bride. But accents aside, there’s beauty bursting from everywhere thanks to help from Bow Occasions and every draped fold in the bride’s Monique Lhuillier gown. Just take a peek at this video from Wedding Film Studio and prepare your feet to be swept.
From the Bride… Oliver and I met almost 10 years ago when I was living in Dubai and he was on holiday visiting a mutual friend. To my good luck he decided to move there a few years later and it didn’t take long for us to become great friends and then something more. We got engaged in the summer of 2012 and moved to London shortly after.
Planning the wedding was a dream for me. With the help of my amazing parents and my wonderful in-laws, we were granted everything we could have hoped for for our big day. The first thing we decided on was the venue, Oli’s family home in Kent, Little Bedgebury Farm. We fell in love with the idea of having a chic country wedding at a place that felt personal to Oli’s family and mine. The rest was a breeze, from finding our wonderful photographer, Sophia Hanbury, to choosing Simon at Wedding Film Studio to document the day, to Oli’s favourite part of the planning process, deciding on the cake!
The day itself couldn’t have gone any better. The weather was perfect, we had our closest friends and family around us, and the setting was dreamier than I could have ever imagined. Simon did an incredible job in capturing all of this and more. Our families have watched the DVD of the wedding more times than they can count, and every time Oli and I watch it, we get transported back to the best day of our lives.

From Jean-Laurent Gaudy Photography… This couple is one of the reason why I love my job so much. Will & Toby live near London. They are the sweetest, deeply in love, always smiling. Their engagement session was therefore so natural. I simply spent an afternoon with them capturing who they are with no artifacts.

Check this out: the Mini Cooper at 00:45, the groom built himself. Now that’s a way to show your love. If that’s not cute enough, the voiceover is a love letter he wrote to his bride. I watch a lot of these, but something about this got to me. Be Authentic Photography‘s keen camerawork certainly helped, but I think it’s the love part. So make sure you have someone close by to hug and enjoy the film!

…Every once in a while, as photographer/film makers, you are given the opportunity to capture an amazing story. Richard and Stephanie’s wedding was that opportunity. They have an amazing love story. Rich in his effort to bring Stephanie’s dreams to life endeavored to hand build a vintage mini car for their wedding so he could drive her away in it. He did just that and you can see it all right here. Their story is incredible and worth telling and we had that opportunity.
It was not mystery this would be a stunning wedding. Set in the lush green land and historic area of West Sussex England, it provided for a breathtaking vintage wedding. The ceremony took place in a beautiful small traditional English church complete with bells ringing and all.
Later the beautiful couple escaped to the reception located in a beautiful large barn on a private farm that had been renovated to host special events. Its deep rich old oak beams and large wooden doors set the tone for a memorable evening filled with cake cutting, speeches, dancing, and an incredible sparklers exit that was truly one of a kind. It’s the kind of wedding that will not be easily forgotten.
