Summer Garden Wedding at Houchins, Essex

In July Chris and Cristina got married at the stunning St Peter's Church in Coggeshall and the reception took place at the wonderful Houchins. It's the first time I have worked at this venue and I absolutely fell in love with it's beauty! I cannot wait to work there again next year!

I loved the natural feel of the wedding with lots of flowers and herbs decorating the place and so much thought had gone into all the little details and entertainment for the children and adults.

We were also lucky enough to gain access to the beautiful blue field of flowers behind Houchins, which was absolutely stunning when the sun was going down!

I had a great time working with Cristina and Chris throughout their wedding experience, they are such fun to be around and their friends and family were a pleasure. I honestly feel lucky to get to work with people like these two.

Check out their photos...
