Today we are heading back a couple of months to August of this year, as...
Happy Wednesday everyone and well done on reaching the mid point of the week, how have you been? Have you had snow? We had a huge covering yesterday and it looks like there is more to come at the weekend! So today I am taking you off to warmer times, back to the summer of 2019 when the sun shone and times were simpler. Sarah and Lauren were married on 13th July 2019 in Smallfield Place, Surrey. They risked the British weather and chose to hold both their ceremony and reception outside and the results are marvelous. Both brides look divine, the day is laid back, full of love and captured perfectly by Laura from Babb Photos.
Sarah and Lauren met through friends, at a curry night in Washington D.C. They brought friends and family together from all over the world to celebrate their intimate Smallfield Place wedding.
Smallfield Place is a lovely exclusive hire Jacobean manor house. Sarah and Lauren spent the whole weekend there with 40 of their nearest and dearest. They had a really relaxed and intimate celebration.
I attract a lot of laid back couples and Sarah and Lauren were no exception. When I arrived at Smallfield Place, everyone was spending the morning relaxing and enjoying the grounds, before starting to get ready for the day ahead.
Sarah and I chatted about hiking while she got ready to put on her uniform, and Lauren got into her dress that was accessorised with a beautiful floral hoop from Bloomingayles.
Sarah and Lauren had a family friend conduct their ceremony. It’s always extra special when you can have someone you love to conduct it. Guests took their seats next to the water, as Sarah and Lauren walked through the grounds, ready to say their vows.
After the ceremony was done, Sarah and Lauren snuck off to spend some time together while guests made their way back towards the house for drinks and music from The Fix Band.
We took some laid back group shots, including a sword arch, and then everyone made their way to sit down for dinner.
The tables were set up outside the house for a beautiful outdoor dinner. They looked lovely, with flowers and decor in blush, cornflower blue and chartreuse. There’s something really magical about seating everyone outside to eat. It was a bit touch and go, though as we weren’t really sure if the weather was going to play ball!
After dinner, the dancing started. For such a small wedding party, the dancefloor was packed throughout the dancing. I then whisked Sarah and Lauren away for some dusk portraits around the grounds, before leaving them to enjoy their Smallfield Place wedding party.
