Sarah and Ian were married at St Mary’s in Haddenham with their reception and evening do at Notley Abbey.
I love this place. I’ve covered a lot of the Bijou wedding venues but this is my favourite, I love the setting, the lavender the way the light falls, the river and it has some of the nicest staff in the industry.
This was a very colourful and stylish wedding. I’m guessing, but I think Sarah’s dress was a Jenny Packham number which was very classic and vintage in design. Her flowers were a lovely mix of pinks and whites with feathers in (something I don’t often see) and this was a lovely contrast between the vibrant getting ready colours of the dressing gowns in the morning.
It rained, but this added more to the day than it took away and halfway through the ceremony at St Mary’s church the sun came out and the skies cleared of cloud.
Then as the day naturally progressed with the dinner at Notley Abbey the speeches followed with the party continuing outside until the first dance and the cutting of that very special Costa Cake.
