It’s always super exciting to discover a new venue and yesterday I was pretty much in wedding heaven. We had a beautiful fresh sunny Septembers day, some lovely lovely people and an outside ceremony on a tiny island.
After making sure the legal part was all in order the day before, Lea & David chose to have a humanist ceremony at the gorgeous Folke Manor, Dorset. To kick the day off, Lea and the girls got ready in one of the cottages. When Lea got into her gorgeous dress, slipped on her pretty ballet pumps, she promptly took everyone’s breath away.
The day was amazing through and through, with a lovely relaxed atmosphere and some fantastic live music to boot. David comes from a family of musicians so it was no surprise when the grooms father played the violin beautifully as Lea walked down the hay bale lined aisle, looking just stunning.
The humanist ceremony was very moving – real, honest and personal. I love traditions at weddings although to be honest I am not sure I understand them all. Dont get me wrong, I love cake! But it is also wonderful to see things tweaked to make it a perfect fit for the bride and groom.
It is safe to say David and Lea ceremony was beautiful in so many ways their own personal vows, exchange of rings as well handfasting and jumping the broomstick made it all very touching.
As entertainment went David and Lea took centre stage for their first guitar riff as husband and wife which led onto their first dance as Deep Red took over for the evening dancing.
Thank you so much Lea & David for letting me capture your beautiful day for you, it was such a pleasure! I hope the honeymoon was everything you dreamed of, and more. x
