Retro romantic flair, super sweet bridal style, and mind-blowing floral design make this classic English countryside wedding a real charmer! Naomi and Isaac hosted their ceremony in a charming church then wowed guests with stunning tablescapes and Isaac’s DIY chocolates at their reception at The Old Stables. We can’t get enough of Naomi’s sparkly Sottero and Midgley gown, perfectly natural makeup, and incredible peony-based bouquet. Matt Horan Photography beautifully captured every moment of Naomi and Isaac’s wedding!
Naomi and Isaac
It was important to us to keep the vibe of our wedding relaxed and informal; we wanted to do things our way rather than follow what was ‘meant’ to be done. A strong criteria of our church and venue was that we didn’t have strict rules to follow! We also wanted to make sure that everyone had a good time celebrating, so we tried to think about what would be important to our guests on the day too.
Matt Horan is an excellent photographer and a wonderful person to be around, and working with him on our wedding day came very naturally. He made us feel at ease whilst taking our photos, whatever the point in the day. It was a pleasure to see him laughing and having fun with our guests, and he captured some really fun and natural shots which are some of our favourites. We absolutely love our photos and cannot thank Matt enough for capturing our day perfectly.
We’ve been to weddings before where the favours have been left behind in the excitement of the day. We wanted our guests to choose their own favours to make sure they took them! With Isaac being a chocolatier, it was an easy choice for him to make the handmade chocolates. We then arranged them on cake stands and marble for our guests to enjoy on the day and to fill a box to take home.
Our advice: Don’t lose sight that it’s a day of celebration and that people are happy if they see that you are happy. Also make sure you give the best man a time limit on his speech!
The most memorable part of the day for us was our first dance. We’ll never forget everyone’s faces when the dubstep base line dropped and the confetti cannons exploded! It was amazing to dance to an all time favourite song with all our loved ones getting into the spirit of it too.
