Elegant Wedding at Gaynes Park


When I met Helen and Joe a couple of months ago for their pre-wedding shoot, I knew their wedding was going to be an absolute blast. They were so laid back and just up for a laugh the whole time. The wedding sounded awesome and I knew it was going to be an epic day and a wicked party all round.

The elegant wedding was hosted at the stunning venue that is Gaynes Park. With a back drop like Gaynes Park with the gorgeous orangery, the beautiful gardens, epic views from the driveway and the pretty barn for the reception - the wedding was always going to be a an absolute stunner.

Helen and Joe went for a really elegant wedding theme of white flowers with greenery and really soft blue/grey colour for the bridesmaids and decor. The groomsmen's tuxedo's complimented the elegant feel of the day and I think Helen's vision came together amazingly.

When I saw Helen's Pronovia's dress- I can't even describe how blown away I was. I just knew she was going to have an incredible dress but I could not imagine a more delicate and beautifully crafted wedding gown. The colour and detailing is just epic. And when she put it on- OMG. What an absolute babe. Joe is a very lucky man haha Helen you look insane! When you walked down that aisle everyone was in awe, and I think Joe almost collapsed haha. Even though his drawing of what he thought the dress looked like was almost spot on! haha

The ceremony was great and these two just laughed all the way through. Joe kicked off the dancing early with some sort of robot dance and as you can tell by Helen's face she was pretty impressed! haha

Even the weather was perfect and the guests got to enjoy the gardens during the drinks reception. I knew it was going to be a good party as soon as the confetti was thrown- because their friends and family went crazy! haha. The day was all about the good food, good drinks and good times. It really was perfect.

After the delicious dinner, the party kicked off and the atmosphere was buzzing. Everyone was up for a good time and couldn't wait to get these two on the dance floor for the first dance they were dreading haha. They absolutely smashed it and the evening festivities continued with an epic band and everyone killing it on the dance floor- especially Joe haha.

Huge thanks to Emma Hare Photography who second shot for me at Gaynes Park. You were amazing as always!

Helen and Joe, thank you SO much for having us! We literally had the best time with you both, and your friends and family were so much fun. Thank you for being so welcoming and such a laugh to be around. You're both awesome and you really do make the best couple. I hope you love this little sneak peek of your elegant wedding at Gaynes Park (ok I may have shared too many- but you guys! Look how epic your day was!! I couldn't not.)

Have the best time in Santorini (Jealous much) and I cannot wait to share more with you soon.
