I'm convinced that Hayley should be a wedding planner. Not only was hers and Charlie's wedding such a beautiful day, everything was so well planned and she did so much of the decoration herself; the paper hearts around the wedding cake and the beautifully painted table it was stood on, the intricately drawn seating plan including all the book named tables to name a few.
The day started with Hayley and her mum getting their hair done by Zara Day, and make up by the ever fabulous Lynsey-Marie Lamothe, and after the bridesmaids had popped over to get their hair done at Six Hair Studio & Upper Six they came back to eat some breakfast, finish getting ready and listen to some cheesy 90's classics on the music channels. Oh yeah and Willow and Orion the cats would come out of hiding from time to time for some attention too.
How beautiful are these wedding boots by House of Elliot?! I haven't photographed many wedding boots before, and I had to drag myself away to photograph other things!
Despite the rain that persisted all day (why do they say that's good luck on a wedding day?!), Rachel and Ryan's wedding day went very well indeed.
The pair had a fairly small and laid back wedding at Ventnor Botanic Gardens, most of the guests and myself made our way to the gardens on "The Old Girl" bus, where there was an awful lot of Prosecco and laughter despite the miserable weather. It was the first time I'd been on the vintage bus and it is beautiful and the staff were so friendly and helpful. All the wonderful flowers were done by Doris Pinks Florist, and the ever fabulous Frostbite Bakery did the wedding cake!
Thank you so much Rachel and Ryan for asking Lana and I to photograph your wedding, for the kind words and for recommending us! Also a huge thank you to Rachel's mum for randomly leaving me a beautiful review.
