Jess and Brett were married at Coltsfoot Country Retreat in Datchworth, Hertfordshire. This was my first time working at Coltsfoot Country Retreat. I always love discovering a new venue and this was one of those tucked down a little country road that blows you away with how beautiful it is.

I’m such a big fan of Jess’ bridesmaids dresses! The three colours look so gorgeous together and I love how they each customised them to suit them best. Of course, I can’t mention the bridesmaids dresses without mentioning Jess’ beautiful dress! Expertly steamed by her sister.

There was some great food at this wedding. Instead of a traditional wedding cake Jess and Brett chose to have a cheese “cake”, with the most adorable mouse toppers. There was a sweet table and then in place of an evening buffet Jess and Brett had an ice cream and pizza vans. I had to drag myself away from them!

Most importantly though, I loved how many giggles there were throughout the ceremony and the whole day. It was such a happy and fun day to be a part of!

Beth and George were married at St Nicholas Church in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, followed by a reception at North Hill Farm in Rickmansworth.

Beth and I first met several years ago when I was moving out of home and she rented me the infamous nightmare flat I lived in for my first independent eighteen months. While that may not have been the greatest experience, meeting Beth was a delight and we bonded over a love of impractical period features and the wedding industry – Beth used to be a florist. It’s hard to put into words how glorious this wedding was, or how welcome Beth, George, their families and friends made me feel!

Beth and George have a lot of talented friends! While Beth clearly had a lot of input on the flowers, these were put together by a friend; the beautiful cake was made by George’s Mum; his brother serenaded guests throughout both the ceremony and reception (including a rendition of ‘happy birthday’ during the speeches) and one of Beth’s school friends did all of the ladies hair. I think he deserves a special mention for doing all of this with one of his legs in a cast balanced precariously on cushions! And then there’s Beth and George themselves, who put together so much of the day by hand! George makes his own comics so there was a heavy comic influence here, beautifully incorporated into their order of services, which included the illustrated story of their relationship and proposal! Not to mention the most beautiful superhero theme I’ve ever seen! Each table was named after a different superhero and the table runners were made of comic strips that guests could colour in themselves! When someone says “superhero wedding” I’m sure it doesn’t look as elegant in your head as this absolutely stunning wedding!

When we arrived at North Hill Farm in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire there was an ice cream van waiting, with some of the most delicious ice cream I’ve ever had (triple chocolate!!). As well as a “Pimp your Prosecco” tent, which is something I’ve never seen before, but, I hope I do again! Later in the evening, as the campfire was fired up, a fish and chip van served as the evening buffet. Just perfect. My final shots were of Beth and her bridesmaids dancing in a field in special bridal party wellies, which summed up the day for me – lots of giggles and a whole lot of fun.
