A most charming wedding it was.
The ceremony took place at home. Unfortunately we had a torrential downpour and there was no cover from the rain ! Tom and Shauna had decided earlier in the day to continue with plans for an outdoor ceremony hoping the rain would cease, even for the briefest moment. No such luck I'm afraid. So there we were setting up in the rain.
On the one hand it was quite refreshing and a relief as we have been experiencing the most humid weather . On the other, I can only imagine it must have made for a very quick ceremony and a mad dash back into the house for champagne and air conditioning ! Though sounds like fun to me because as some of you know I love rain !
Unfortunately, we didn't snap any pics from the backyard as the rain slowed us down and we had to make haste to the reception for set up.
Thankfully the reception was held indoors at a local restaurant. I love the vibe of this room. You almost feel you are in Paris (if you don't look out the window). The exposed brick, the crisp white linens, simple table setting and the light streaming through the room was so pretty.
Flowers included garden roses, stocks, wild carrot, lisianthus and dahlias
The style was loose and seasonal with a vintagey feel.
A small intimate affair with family and friends....forty or so. Perfect.
Bouquets in various shades of pinks, greens and creams.
Shauna (the bride) wanted a simple, charming yet chic look.
This was the large bouquet that David quickly snapped inside the house.The colours are a little off here. However, these flowers really shone on the corner of the large wooden, marble topped bar at the restaurant. Wish I could have gotten a picture, but guests had started to arrive when we got there.
And a quick snap of the whimsical wreath for the front door
