Hope you had a fabulous weekend and are looking forward to (hopefully!) a brighter week with a little less rain. We can but dream.
I’ve been waiting ages so share this post with you, if you remember the previous post on Fiona & Kesh’s engagement shoot then you’ll be as excited as I am, because we get to look at more fabulous images from the talented Marcus Ward from Bigeye Photography.
In April 2012, just a few weeks after I’d had my baby girl Flora, and after months of careful planning and co-ordination, I had the pleasure of working at Fiona & Kesh’s wedding at The Matara Centre in Kingscote, where I was asked to style the venue in the morning, returning to transform it for evening celebrations later on. The table themes were inspired by a styling event I’d done previously at Matara where I first met this lovely couple.
Fiona and Kesh first met in 2006 and after falling head over heels in love, Kesh proposed romantically with a treasure hunt on Christmas day where the final clue was attached to their gorgeous doggy’s collar where Kesh was waiting with a ring!
One of the most exciting things about this wedding in Gloucestershire, is that the couple got married twice in one day! Yup….two outfits, two make up looks, two ceremonies and MUCH celebration!The day began early at 10am with an intimate garland exchange followed by the Hindu ceremony in the main room. Guests sipped champagne and chatted over canapes while the couple changed into their second outfits for the next ceremony, which took place outside in the courtyard. The rain cleared just in time!
I hope you enjoy looking few the photo’s…. this AWESOME wedding was featured in Unique Bride Magazine this month so it’s gotta be pretty special right?! 😉
Look forward to hearing your comments on this one… would YOU ever attempt two ceremonies in one day?!
