Vicki and David married back in the Spring at Farbridge, West Sussex. They wanted their day to be beautiful, intimate and relaxed.
They went for a fun purple colour scheme, with country style blooms, the maids in elegant purple dresses and sweet purple decorations. Vicki looked stunning in a flowing dress with her hair in natural waves, while David wore traditional tails. Such a gorgeous day.
Thanks so much to the wonderful Alexa Loy for sharing her photographs with us today.
