Langtons House Wedding and Chilled Garden Reception


I had the loveliest day photographing Faye and Tom's wedding at Langtons House wedding in Hornchurch last week. I honestly don't think I have ever met two people more happy than these two on their wedding day. They did not stop smiling and laughing all day. It really was amazing to be a part of.

Right from the start Faye and Tom wanted to keep their chilled garden wedding low key. They invited their closest friends and family, kept the bridal party small and organised and prepared pretty much the entire day by themselves- with the help of their awesome friends and family. It was perfect and exactly how they wanted it to be.

Faye's very talented Dad created all of the flowers- including Faye's stunning flower crown! What a masterpiece! I absolutely love it and it suits Faye perfectly. I wouldn't expect anything less than an array of colour in her hair and a gold sequin dress from her! I'm so glad she went with her heart and decided to skip the traditions and wear what really reflects her personality. I was absolutely blown away when I saw her! And I'm pretty sure Tom was too :)

The ceremony consisted of the pair of them smiling and giggling the whole way through, and me feeling very lucky to have such an awesome job. Afterwards, despite the September winds picking up, it was a stunning day and everyone gathered in Langtons House gardens to greet and congratulate the newlyweds.

Faye, Tom and I went for a walk around the grounds, which everyone knows I absolutely love at Langtons House! The gardens were stunning as always and I spent the whole time smiling and laughing with Faye and Tom as we chatted and they enjoyed spending some time alone together, before the reception kicked off.

The chilled garden wedding reception took place at Faye's Nan's lovely home. They had set the garden up with marquees and tables and chairs for everyone to enjoy the home made buffet and mingle and enjoy some drinks. It felt really old school, like I would imagine weddings were back in the day- a Registry office and then back to a family home for the reception. It was super chilled, completely stress-free and everyone seemed like they were having the best time celebrating with Faye and Tom.

I love how personal and chilled the garden party was. Everyone seemed to chip in to help organise all the parts of the day. They had one friend working hard on the buffet and another had created their stunning cake which was absolutely DELICIOUS!

When the evening party kicked off they ordered pizza and donuts- what more could you want? And the dancing began.

Faye and Tom, I just want to thank you both so much for being so welcoming and kind on your wedding day. Your family and friends are awesome and you're so lucky to have such a great bunch of supportive people around you to begin your married journey together. I felt like part of the family on the day and I honestly had the best time working with you all. You two make me so happy, your energy and contentment is infectious and it's so clear for everyone to see that you are perfect for each other. I wish you all the happiness for your journey together and I hope to see you again in the future. I hope you love this little sneak peek of the day!! Eek so much more to come.

Love Danielle xx
