Daisy and Matt’s elegant and beautiful marquee wedding was nothing short of breath-taking. It was held in my gorgeous home town, the historic cathedral town of Canterbury (thanks guys for making my commute that day an absolute breeze!) where they really set the whimsical, vintage-inspired floral wedding style to the next level. We’re talking a personally sown wildflower meadow – yup, you read that right! Feast your eyes upon this day of dreams that I was lucky enough to photograph…
Their day was full of personal elements, as Daisy and Matt had their ceremony in the same church her parents were married in, and their reception at Daisy’s family home. Daisy also wore a beautiful vintage veil passed down from her mother to compliment her cream wrap House of Vintage dress. The epitome of chic, her bridesmaids wore green Liberty London skirts with camisoles tucked in. Matt wore a sharp forest green suit to complete the colour palette and cement their position as the coolest couple Kent has ever seen (that’s their official title now!).
These two were my absolute dream couple – super stylish, really relaxed and up for some good old-fashioned fun. Their love for each other was also so obvious in all of the moments and details I loved picking up: in Daisy’s relaxed and happy demeanour in the bridal prep, in Matt’s unbridled tears at the altar, in their gentle touch whilst the speeches were on.
To provide the best backdrop you could ever hope for, Daisy’s mother had sown and cultivated a wild flower meadow – just let that sink in, she’d sown an entire wildflower MEADOW – months before, creating a luscious marquee setting. We got to go and explore it later for their natural portraits session and it was wild, fragrant, whimsical and totally wonderful – it was exactly as you’d expect a meadow sown especially for you to be, really.
The wildflower vibes continued with LPM Bohemia’s amazing patterned marquee, the walls of which were covered in a fern print. Trails of greenery and flowers snaked up the supporting poles to decorate the airy space, which proved a documentary wedding photographer’s dream to shoot in later – lots of happy faces for me to find in the crowd and capture in the moment.
And when I introduced Daisy and Matt as enjoying good old-fashioned fun, I meant it. Come the evening, the tent came alive and (after sneaking a picture of the gorgeous tent at dusk, a favourite shot of mine) the guests partied until the early hours. Their vision and enthusiasm was an absolute joy to be a part of, as I adored the day and love the photos!
