south farm wedding

 

Before you head out of the office for the weekend i have the beautiful wedding of John and Angela to share with you lovelies, yippee.

John and Angela were married in September and wanted their wedding to have a French, vintage and chic feel to it. They chose the lovely setting of South Farm, Cambridgeshire to host the day, which provided the perfect backdrop.

Angela chose to wear an Enzoani  fish tail lace number with some swoon-worthy Jimmy Choos, yum. While John went for a classic made to measure three piece suit which looked great. The bridesmaids wore pretty custom made blush mismatched frocks which worked wonderfully with the simple and elegant flowers. Such a chic and romantic day.

Thanks so much to the wonderful Matt Parry Photography for sharing his photography with us this afternoon.
