Relaxed Garden and Marquee Wedding

Remember that weekend back in July when it didn't stop raining ALL DAY?? Well, that was the weekend Sophie and Jordan got married. But did it hinder their day? Absolutely not! Nothing was going to spoil it for these two. It was absolute perfection and a wedding day I will never forget.

Sophie's Charlotte Balbier wedding dress was TO DIE FOR!! I absolutely love how delicate this gown is. The detail is absolutely stunning. And that veil! Absolute show stopper.

All the family had gone to extreme lengths to create the perfect marquee wedding at Jordan's family home. The garden games didn't go to waste despite the weather! Umbrellas were out and everyone embraced the constant downpour.

What I loved most about this laid back garden wedding, was the atmosphere all day. It was constant laughter and happiness and amazing to be a part of. When the party kicked off with the first dance and the confetti canons went off! I knew they were in for a good night...
