Autumnal Vibes and relaxed pretty styling...
On a crisp sunny autumnal day last November I headed to Staffordshire with the dream team that is You and Yours Films to capture the special day of Lizzie and Matt.
I love working with Will and Alyn, who are really creative with their work and also down right hilarious to hang out with for the day!
It was my first time to Alrewas Hayes wedding venue and with its charming converted barns and light and airy marquee with beautiful countryside views it ticks all the boxes! We were greeted warmly by Amy and Emma the wedding coordinators for the day and made us feel at home. I immediately spotted the mini woodland which was awash with amazing autumn colours and knew we had to take the couple for a stroll amongst the leaves for portraits.
The day was full of smiles and plenty of family fun with the couples children a big part of their special day. I adored the brides choice of footwear which was a comfy pair of converse! Definitely means you don't have to worry about achey feet or sinking into the grass during photos!
The ceremony and reception rooms were beautifully decorated by Fine & Dandy Venue Styling with a timeless colour palette and details adorning every spot.
The bride and her bridal party were made up beautifully by Helen Willis Make Up and KH Hairdressing in the stunning bridal suite which was so spacious and lovely to hang out in. Lizzie the bride certainly impressed her Father in her TDR Bridal Gown, as he had a first look and we captured a really emotional moment as he hugged his daughter dressed as a bride for the first time.
The ceremony ensued and flowed into the reception where a pianist entertained guests while we took the couple for some photos in front of the beautiful old farm house and then into the woodland.
The guests enjoyed their wedding breakfast and speeches before the party really kicked off. Once the happy couple cut the cake and danced their first dance as man and wife, the dance floor was properly lit up when the bridesmaids arrived in light up trainers to surprise the bride!
We left the wedding party dancing their socks off and throughly enjoying themselves! We hope your day was everything you had dreamed off and more Lizzie and Matt! x
