Fun Country House Wedding- Martin & Ceri


Martin and Ceri married at Harlow Baptist church last weekend. It was a surprising warm day for early September and it was perfect for the relaxed and fun country house wedding they had planned, with games on the lawn and an amazing sunset.

They both got ready at Downhall Country House hotel where the afternoon and evening reception was to be held too. It was a tense morning with the build up to the ceremony and I know Ceri was feeling a little nervous towards the end of the morning preparations!

However, when she arrived at the church and walked down the aisle she instantly relaxed when she saw her hubby to be! The ceremony was beautiful and had lots of songs and hymns which is always a lovely touch. The flowers by Luke and Lottie were just stunning and continued back at Downhall too.

Also, how sweet are the page boy and flower girl walking down the aisle holding their sign?! All of the kids in the bridal party were so good all day and did all their duties so, so well.

Back at the Country House, everyone chilled in the gardens and enjoyed the lawn games which are such a good idea for entertainment. There was also a magician who kept a lot of adults entertained too!

I am in love with the travel theme throughout the whole wedding and all the decor. Everything was so well done and all the details and decor were simply beautiful. I hear Martin planned pretty much everything and he did an awesome job at it! Ceri is one very lucky bride and also very relaxed to leave all the planning in his clearly capable hands! The reception looked incredible as you can see!

As the evening drew in, the sun began to set and the couple were so lucky to have a warm and beautiful sunset. We couldn't miss the opportunity to go for a walk around the grounds and capture some evening photos of the two of them.

Before we knew it, it was time for everyone to hit the dance floor and party the night away!

I have to say a huuuge thank you to Sam from Sam and Louise Photography for being an awesome second photographer on the day and for helping out so much.

It was also fantastic to work with some friends in the industry and also some lovely new suppliers listed below. Check them out!
