Benedict and Kathryn’s vision for their wedding day was rustic with a twist of French charm. The couple grew up enjoying holidays in France, so the theme represented their style perfectly. Choosing a venue close to home, the couple selected Cadhay in Devon, United Kingdom for their romantic, elegant day. Stealing the couple away for an amazing photo session, Helen Lisk Photography captured the newlyweds surrounded by a lush garden and rustic greenhouse.

Cadhay, Devon, United Kingdom
From the bride: My dress was ‘Mallarmé’ by Parisian designer, Laure de Sagazan, purchased through The Mews of Clifton Village. I first spotted Laure de Sagazan’s dresses on Pinterest and fell in love with her designs. She creates the most stunning bohemian inspired wedding dresses. As soon as I tried on the dress I knew it was the one. It was made of silk crepe and delicate French Calais lace and it fitted our theme perfectly.
From the couple: Initially we didn’t really have a colour scheme in mind; we just knew that we wanted to incorporate white with neutral blush tones and splashes of lavender and natural fabrics. Using bare wooden trestle tables and wood slice centrepieces in our marquee helped us to bring the outside in and created the rustic feel we both wanted – we wanted everything to be natural and relaxed, not looking too ‘overthought’.
