I think Hannah and Dan may just win the award for the cutest couple. I love their mega watt smiles and super loved up portraits, happy days.
Hannah and Dan were married on the 19th August 2016 at Milling Barn in Hertfordshire. They hoped to create a simple yet elegant day with the rustic barn as the backdrop and pretty touches. Fun elements included those giant balloons above, fresh blooms in jars, a modern cake and gold glitter stationery.
With the bridesmaids in soft lilac, Hannah chose a So Sassi Sassi Holford gown with a sweet lacy top. Her hair was swept up into a classic style with a hair band completing her look. Didn’t she look stunning? Dan chose a blue suit with contrasting grey waistcoat and tan shoes for a timeless style.
Thanks so much to Faye Cornhill for sharing these exquisite shots with us.
THE PROPOSAL | We went for dinner at our favourite restaurant then walked to Covent Garden where Dan got down on one knee in front of all our family and friends who were on the balcony with rose petals.
THE VISION | We really wanted a relaxed barn wedding, simple, elegant and rustic but still pretty.
THE PLANNING PROCESS | Went to a few venues before finding ‘the one’, next was the dress and then everything else came together from there. Most important things for us were finding a great photographer, which thankfully we did and making the barn look pretty which wasn’t hard.

ADVICE FOR OTHER COUPLES | Don’t stress, everything will all come together and on the day you won’t care about the little things that don’t go quite right or you have forgotten. The day goes so quickly so take it all in and enjoy every second
