Wes and Becs’ wedding was nothing short of epic. I’m not sure I have ever seen so much creativity in one place. And rather unusually, the creative force behind this wedding was the very talented groom :) Wes is a graphic designer and had poured his heart and soul into designing a beautiful and unique wedding full of creative details. This wedding doesn’t just have a colour scheme and some general pretty, it has a brand! (and a very cute logo to boot!) What an eye for detail – Wes thought of everything! Bird-shaped pastry pie-tops, personalised flags and badges, candles in birdcages, vintage books, aprons for the waiting staff… the colour-scheme and bird theme were carried through to every last detail. As if that wasn’t enough, the groomsmen wore vintage Liberty-print ties and tan brogues, the outdoor ceremony came complete with a doorway and fireplace and the reception took place in Papakata tipis… All at the most beautiful venue: Shortflatt Tower in Northumberland. Becs looked pretty darn gorgeous in her lace fishtail Benjamin Roberts dress, and there were five adorable flower girls, who spent a lot of time running and twirling in their pretty dresses. Wes and Becs are two of the loveliest people you could meet, and are a lot of fun to spend time with, and to photograph – even being willing to don wellies and wade through ankle-deep mud in field of annoyed-looking bulls for the sake of a beautiful photo :) The day was filled with so much love and happiness and fun and creativity. Words can’t do it justice, so I’ll leave you to look through the few (ahem!) photos…
Aren’t those flowers just fabulous? I love all the gorgeous vibrant colours. And as for the cute pink shoes… amazing!
Even though the forecast was a little dubious, with all the effort Wes had gone to with the door and the fireplace, there was no way this wedding wasn’t going to take place outside!
I absolutely love all the vintage liberty print ties that Wes sourced for the groomsmen. Along with the mismatched socks and tan brogues!
I love that my brides don’t think twice about donning wellies with their wedding dresses…
…because I had spotted a tree, in a field, with long golden grass ;)
I don’t think I have ever seen quite such a consistently packed dance-floor! Wes & Becs’ families knew how to move!
Thanks Wes & Becs for trusting us to capture your special day, and for providing so much pretty to photograph! We had an amazing day and it was such a privilege to a part of your fabulous wedding! We wish you a lifetime of happiness and fun together.
