Early April saw the wedding of a truly lovely couple – Lucy and András – at the stunning Elmore Court. This was my first wedding of the 2014 season and everything promised to make this a very special day – we were not disappointed!
Lucy and András are both taking their law exams so planning a wedding in the middle of studying would deter most. Not Lucy & András though, they worked through and planned a gorgeous wedding with lots of stunning and thoughtful details.
This beautiful streamer and candle lit jar arrangement by Kate at Lavender & Linen greeted guests as they arrived at the house. The streamers sounded wonderful blowing in the wind and set the day off to a wonderful start.
To help they had a great team on board.
Kate at Lavender & Linen helped style the wedding, recommended many of the suppliers – including myself (for which I am eternally grateful Kate) – and dressed the Gillyflower beautifully for the wedding breakfast. Alison from Wild about Flowers provided the beautiful flower arrangements, bouquet and button holes. Donna at Posy & Pearl provided Lucy’s beautiful hairpiece, Jennie from Curtis & Co. Cakes provided a beautiful and stunningly intricate (and deliciously tasting – this photographer can vouch for that) wedding cake and last but by no means least was the very talented and very personable Hugh from Hugh Farrow Films who was on hand all day to capture video on his vintage 8mm camera – his video will be coming along soon – can’t wait for that – he was a joy to work alongside and I hope to work with him again on future weddings.
Leesa from Elmore Court ensured that everything ran beautifully on the day and was very helpful and great to work with, understanding the needs of the photographer on the day and balancing that so well with the needs of the guests and caterers.
Lucy’s bridal gown was a beautiful vintage inspired piece by the fabulous Claire Pettibone.
25 members of András’s family flew in from Hungary for the wedding – they were a joy to meet and work with – such a good sense of humour and having the speeches in both English and Hungarian was inspired and very funny. Both sides of the family and all guests were just lovely, very accommodating, good humoured and obviously enjoyed this wonderful day.
Elmore Court provided the perfect location for the ceremony, the 750 year old house looked amazing and provided a wonderful setting for the photographs – it is a photographers dream to be honest. The newly built adjunct to the house – The Gilllyflower hosted the wedding breakfast and the subsequent party and looked stunning in all its beautifully dressed glory.
Wishing Lucy and András a wonderful and blissful marriage together – they are a lovely lovely couple, I was privileged to work with them and their family – I will miss them but will stay in touch and hope to photograph their family in the future xx
Please take a look through some of the photographs of the day below – I hope you enjoy!

The speeches, cutting of the cake and the beautiful first dance – a well practised viennese waltz – took place in the Gillyflower followed by a rambunctious Céilidh.
