Elliott and Emily married at Christchurch Harbour Hotel as Elliott spent a lot of time in the area growing up and they wanted to marry outside of Northampton where they live and where I shot their 'home engagement shoot' earlier in the year.
Christchurch is beautiful to them and the surrounding area near the Harbour Hotel. They liked classic wedding colours but not completely white, which included the guys super smart suits, whilst the bridesmaids were in simple and elegant cream. Flowers were a big thing for Emily. The Bigger the better to create a wow factor. Natalie from Flowers by Design created just that for them. Simple, but not too plain. Emily wanted lots of height in the room and Natalie did an awesome job dressing the lights and tables and the amazing outside decor which looked magical with white streamers from the tree and blossom trees everywhere.
Emily's dress was the second one she tried on, and like they say... She knew right away it was for her. She loved the elegance and lightness of the dress, comfortable to wear and in-keeping with their elegant and classic theme. She looked stunning! SCROLL DOWN TO SEE HOW AWESOME SHE LOOKED!
Emily and Elliott chose a wonderful harpist for the music to walk down the aisle to, as it sounded so beautiful and magical. All of their guests commented on the harpist, especially because she played a few Disney songs, and who doesn’t love Disney?!
I had such a great time with Elliott and Emily. Such a lovely and stunning couple and so easy to work with. Em was slightly different to most brides I work with as she is a master at the 'moody' look which she really wanted me to try, and it worked brilliantly, especially with the type of light we had just before sunset. It was such a pleasure to be part of their big day and also, so lovely to be invited to their beautiful home in Northampton for their Home Engagement Shoot. Do check it out here:
