Bride sitting on window ledge

We adore the quirkiness of Ben and Fiona’s wedding; with the mismatched crockery, pom poms, fabulous wedding cake and photo booth area, this wedding is a really fun and relaxed affair.

We hope you enjoy these pictures, taken by Daniela K. Photography.

“We wanted a quirky/vintage style wedding, although we didn’t really have set theme; it was ‘anything that’s pretty, goes!’ We decided on an afternoon tea with pretties, mismatched crockery, pom poms, dancing, but most of all we wanted a fun and relaxed day!

“We decided to get married in Ben’s local village church, St. John Cranford, as it was a tradition in his family and it felt right. For our reception venue we needed somewhere big enough to hold a large number of guests, and after driving up to Hinwick House and seeing the clock tower I immediately knew it was to be! It’s idyllic beautiful back drop and grounds sold it to us!

“As an indecisive person I ended up with two wedding dresses. The second I bought with my mum and godmother, whilst shopping for a headdress and shoes. I saw it hanging on the rail and thought ooooh, tea length! My mum quickly reminded we were only looking for a veil, but I ended up trying it on, and after thinking my ideas through it fitted in perfectly. I then quickly started thinking shoes! I had my eye on Vivienne Westwood’s Melissa, and now that my feet were to be on show I had to have them!

“From a large family I had many helpers, who trawled car boot sales, vintage shops, and nanny and granny’s china cabinets as they collected all the crockery. My mum drilled several plates (only one cracked!) and made fabulous cake stands, and my auntie Pauline helped with many of the details, making homemade jam for the favours, some of which our guests used on the day with their scones! She also let me borrow a pair of vintage earrings, my something old handed down from a great aunt, and my something borrowed was my garter from my cousin Shona, which fell down as I walked out the church door! My auntie Lynn designed and made the amazing cake and 150 individually decorated cupcakes, and also made all the pom poms in the marquee. My nanny and auntie Susan created all the flower displays and centrepieces in the marquee the day before the wedding, and auntie Rosemarie supplied all the embroidered tablecloths from her vast collection.

“My bouquet and bridesmaid flowers were a masterpiece created by Sandra from ‘The Garden Room‘. She is an old neighbour of Ben’s family, and after speaking to her I knew she would create such beautiful arrangements! I was amazed with the colours and couldn’t believe how beautiful they were!

“I loved collecting our family’s wedding photos, which we hung like bunting above our cake. We think the guests enjoyed looking at them too as Daniela, our photographer, captured a few gazing back at their memories.

“My sister and her partner James form ‘Good Times Duo’, who supplied the entertainment and sang our first dance ‘Wherever You Will Go’. It was lovely for them to be a big part of the day and we are so grateful for all the work they put into it!

“Overall our day was perfect! We are so grateful to Daniela for capturing our day from start to finish; she has an amazing talent and has created many memories for us to remember!”
