Let love sparkle…a fitting adage for a day that was all about family and joy. Kirsty and Andrew’s Slaughters Manor House Wedding in the Cotswolds was elegant and romantic. It was also centred around the people they would share it with. Our couple planned their wedding so their children would be at the heart of the celebration. From falconry, garden games and a romantic sparkler welcome for the evening. All the little ones at the wedding were entertained and involved in the activities! We think the adults rather enjoyed it too… Kirsty and Andrew you are such a wonderful example of putting family first. Thank you for inviting us to document your special day!
The morning of the wedding was all about sophisticated fun as our Bride prepared for the day ahead.
Bridal details were all classic and white; from the Jimmy Choo’s to the Bridal Bouquet by The Broadway Florist.
Craig Purves, Kirsty’s longstanding hairdresser, and makeup artist Benjamin Ip made a dynamic beauty team!
We love styling the details on the day to capture the atmosphere created by our couples…
Soon it was time for Kirsty to get into her stunning Naomi Neoh wedding dress.
The signature floaty silk chiffon skirt paired with a delicate lace jacket made a dreamy combination.
Subtle floral detailing in the dress reflected the enchanting Cotswold countryside location…
Kirsty’s bridal look was old Hollywood glam with a dash of wild English beauty!
With beautiful bridal portraits captured…
…It was time to simply document events as they unfold as Kirsty prepared to walk to the Church.
Kirsty had four gorgeous bridesmaids in tow…
And her brother on her arm…
Kirsty and Andrew said I Do during a candlelit ceremony in St Mary’s Church in Lower Slaughter.
Planted arrangements by The Broadway Florist that would keep lined the aisle.
St Mary’s would be where Kirsty and Andrew were married and where their son was Christened the day before!
After the ceremony their two children Felix and Matilda and adorable dog Bodie also reveled in the excitement!
We think it so cute that Felix joined Kirsty and Andrew as guests greeted them with confetti!
At the Manor house next door everyone would be entertained by falconry and garden games.
We used our winter lighting kit and the beautiful interiors for our groups as summer rain made an appearance!
After which we stole Kirsty and Andrew away for their portraits once the rain abated…
The graceful architecture of The Slaughters Manor House suited our London couple’s style.
While the gardens and age old trees enhanced the natural English countryside setting.
We made the most of the delicate and diffused light on this rainy summer’s day!
Inside the Manor House was buzzing with the entertainment and decor planned by our couple…
The Slaughters Manor House restaurant echoed the refined countryside feel thanks to The Broadway Florist.
After a decadent dinner guests welcomed our couple to the evening party with sparklers!
The evening ensued with a romantic cake cutting before everyone hit the dancefloor to the sounds of a live band.
