Holly and Tom were married in the Music Room of the Assembly House - one of my favourite places in the county - and I was looking forward to their styling of bringing a festival vibe into the heart of the city.
It was a day of big laughs, loves and tears with brilliant bunch of people. I started my day in the sumptuous bridal suite - the enormous bathroom doubling as a dance floor - with Holly, her daughters and amazing best friend Shelly. My associate photographer Mark, headed down to their farm for Tom's prep. The morning moved pretty swiftly and it was soon time for Holly to become the bride. She went for old Hollywood glamour with a few fun touches - light up red shoes anyone. Tom and the groomsmen added an element of the countryside with blue tweed.
Their ceremony was beautiful; Holly was given away by daughter Sophie down the aisle lined with enormous balloons - by It's My Party - twisted in ivy. We had fun afterwards capturing confetti, canapés and all the chatter in the room. I took Holly and Tom away for a few portrait sections in and around the Assembly House. We started in the courtyard, moving into the Noverre Garden and finishing in the crypt, what a space! The food was as amazing as always and the speeches created more tears, especially those by their young daughters. Their evening was all about lighting, with huge multicoloured love letters on the dance floor and sparklers outside. Their guests were entertained by the brilliant band StereoJack and sweet treats by the fabulous Sweeties. The little ones enjoyed the tipis by Dreamland Teepee Parties to hide and relax in. It was an absolute privilege to capture these memories of a fabulous day.
