Danielle and Josh eloped at St Faith’s Church in Newton Longville which had been part of the family for decades. The bride got ready at her home, just a two minute walk from the church. She chose vibrant pink bouquets with gypsophila, a beautiful low back, a-line dress and the most incredible diamante Ted Baker shoes I’ve ever seen! Danielle managed to hold back the tears when she was handed a Tiffany and Co box with a note from Josh. As soon as Danielle was ready, her mum and dad walked in to see her in her dress for the first time…no one could hold back the tears! After an emotional moment with her dad, the bride and her wedding party made their way to the church.
The ceremony was heartfelt and filled with emotion. It was a lovely hot August day so the guests congregated outside to wave the couple off to their reception venue.
The wedding continued at Flaxbourne Gardens, an extraordinary garden in Aspley Guise, Bedfordshire just outside of Milton Keynes. The venue had so many great spots to photograph it was hard to choose! As you enter you pass a small moated castle, some romantic candlelit caves followed by a beautiful Roman arched gateway.
The marquee was decorated in a pretty and rustic style with pink bunting, mason jars wrapped in ribbon and lots of framed photographs from their engagement session in Linford Woods…they even had an old fashioned sweet cart. After a delicious three course meal, the father of the bride delivered a hilarious speech and a pretty impressive magic trick.
After the speeches, we went to get some pictures of the couple in the idyllic surroundings. The sun was setting so the light was soft and pretty…perfect! Danielle and Josh were a delight to photograph and I left them dancing the night away.
