Ellie & Raphael married at their local church beside the river Thames in Putney, London. The church was filled with candles and their ceremony was beautiful with singing, readings, tears and giggles!
Following the ceremony guests went aboard a golden route master to The Bingham Hotel, a beautiful boutique hotel backing onto the river in Richmond-upon-Thames.
The reception was stylish with personal handmade touches, made by Ellie and her friends. Everyone had a proper knees up to a band who reunited after many years and they certainly filled the dance floor!
Here is a selection from Ellie & Raphael's magical day.
We met with Catherine & James for their engagement shoot in Richmond Surrey, just a stone's throw away from the couple's house. We had originally planned to go to Marble Hill Park, which is where James proposed to Catherine; a beautiful park by the river, with no less than four stately homes. But with heavy showers due on the day of the shoot Catherine suggested a change of plan, to meet at Petersham Nurseries a favourite spot of Catherine & James.
With grey skies overhead and the odd roll of thunder I think we made the right decision; we could dash for cover in the greenhouses, each decorated with beautiful rustic gifts and interiors. With hand crafted homeware, plants & antiques beautifully displayed, it made for a unique setting. We met in the Tea House, where they sell a delicious range of cakes, seasonal and fresh produce, to catch up on Catherine & James' wedding plans before taking a wander around the nurseries.
We are looking forward to Catherine & James' wedding at the Larmer Tree Gardens later this Summer.
