It certainly is a happy Friday thanks to Alice and Edward and their utterly darling nuptials, which were held on the 24th September 2016 at Eyam Hall in Derbyshire. Their focus was to plan a natural, fun and relaxed day and you can certainly see that love was at the heart of the celebrations. The gardens at their venue were just so pretty and made for the perfect backdrop to their outdoor ceremony. Flowers featured heavily, with blooms in urns, succulents and potted plants as centrepieces/gifts and wild bountiful bouquets. They all worked so well with the natural theme. Their bare floral adorned naked cake also suited the low key theme and looked so delicious too.
I really adore Alice and Edward’s outfit choices. Alice wore an ASOS maxi dress in perfect boho meets vintage style, teamed with a cool floral kimono, delicate jewellery and sweet flower crown. Edward meanwhile went for a mix and match look with a burgundy jacket, grey waistcoat and mustard trousers all working in harmony together. What a cute and cool pair they are. Enjoy these wonderful images today folks.
Many thanks goes to Ellie Grace Photography for sharing these divine shots.
