When I first met Kayleigh, I couldn’t be more flattered that she’d checked out my wedding pictures and loved my style…I knew we’d hit it off from then on.
Like me, Kayleigh and her fiancé Omar wanted to inject colour into their day which in my opinion, is a great contrast for a rustic barn. They were also including their precious dog in their celebrations – another total winner in my eyes.

Thankfully they wanted to go ahead and work with me to co-ordinate their day as well as hire my very own wedding lanterns to help with their theme so I was really excited for the big day to hurry up to see what they’d decided to do…and they really didn’t disappoint.

The tables were themed around significant landmarks to the couple that had been highlighted to guests through cleverly created personalised Penguin books.
In addition there were jewel coloured lanterns and vibrant flowers.
The cake was also colour matched to the day, as were other little touches around the barns.

When Kayleigh arrived, she looked so elegant with a really bold and beautiful bouquet but I’m (not) sorry to say that it was neither her nor Omar that stole the show but Dragon their aforementioned canine baby.

The day was filled with great suppliers which always makes it more fun to work.

The reception breakfast was created by Babaganoush with evening food being served via a train front!

There was a surprise for the guests in the form of the Beat Banditos who were as professional as they were hilarious and then onto ClubClass Entertainment to get everyone up and off their feet for the rest of the night.

The superb photos were taken by Mike Nowill, who has kindly let me use some of the images below.

It’s events like this one that make me feel honoured to be able to do my job.
