Relaxed, Summer West Street Vineyard Wedding

West Street Vineyard Wedding

Lucy and Dan married at the incredibly beautiful West Street Vineyard on Friday. Their relaxed, summer wedding took place in the late afternoon and was so chilled all day. Despite everyone almost melting in the heat, it was the most perfect outdoor ceremony.

Lucy got ready at a really cute little cottage called the Firmin's Bakehouse Holiday Cottage just down the road from West Street Vineyard. They had the cutest and most unusual chickens running around the gardens!

I couldn't believe how chilled Lucy and all of her girls were when I arrived to photograph bridal preparations! They were all so relaxed and completely prepared for the day ahead.

Firstly, how incredible is Lucy's lace back Mark Lesley wedding gown?! It is the perfect style for her and she looked breathtaking in it! Lucy and Dan had also organised the sweetest camper van to collect Lucy and the bridesmaids from the cottage and drop them off at West Street Vineyard. The rust-orange colour looked so beautiful in the sunlight.

As always, West Street Vineyard was perfectly decorated and looked absolutely stunning in preparation for the wedding. It was a small, informal affair and I loved how relaxed the whole day was.

Due to the intense heat, everyone had brollies to shelter from the sun during the outdoor ceremony, which actually made for very pretty photos! haha

When Lucy walked down the aisle with her very proud Dad, she looked simply stunning. Dan is one very lucky man! The pair of them could not stop smiling the whole way through the ceremony! It was so beautiful- and they even wrote their own personal vows which I loved.

After nearly choking on a ton of confetti! haha Lucy and Dan chilled in the sun and spent some time mingling with their guests whilst I captured some informal candid photos.

Lucy and Dan opted for a relaxed summer BBQ menu which is such a great idea for an informal and intimate event. West Street Vineyard is the perfect location for everyone to enjoy their meals as the sun goes down. The speeches were so funny and started the evening off perfectly.

We saved Lucy and Dan's relaxed couple photos until the late evening because not only was it too hot during the day, but also because sunset makes for much prettier light in such a gorgeous outdoor venue.

There rest of the evening continued the relaxed atmosphere and chilled vibes. The first dance took place outside on the pergola where the couple said their vows earlier in the day and it was the perfect beginning to the evening party.

Thank you so much to Lucy and Dan for having me! You two have been so lovely to be around, you constantly have big smiles on your faces and it's clear for everyone to see that you two are perfect for one another! I wish you all the best and I cannot wait to share more photos with you from this relaxed, summer wedding at West Street Vineyard. I hope you love this little sneak peek!

West Street Vineyard Wedding Venue

West Street Vineyard is such a gorgeous wedding venue. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting a relaxed and informal wedding celebration in a stunning and rural setting. The vineyard is so well looked after and looks stunning particularly during the summer months when the vines are looking full and lush. It is an absolute dream location for an outdoor wedding and it reminds me of Italy every time I go there.
