On a bright but chilly January day in the Cotswold countryside, Britten Bride Kate walked down the aisle to meet her groom Killian in the striking St Catherine Roman Catholic church in beautiful Chipping Campden. 

Photographs of the wedding were taken by photographer Hannah Larkin, whose intuitive and personal approach led to some of the most intimate and emotional moments of the day being captured on film.

Getting ready in the luxury of The Fish Hotel, Kate added beautiful finishing touches to her bridal look with sophisticated accessories and a natural make-up look. 

Kate looked stunning in an elegant fitted lace floor length gown with a church length train and intricately beaded waistband from Mikaella Bridal purchased from Betty McCaul in Enfield, accessorised with bridal heels from Jimmy Choo

Kate's hair was styled by Essex based hairdresser Sarah Wade, worn long with softly tousled waves and a half up half down braid. The braid was then decorated with our floral hair vine Flora in rose gold.

Kate chose a bespoke rose gold metal finish, with the pinkish tones complementing the freshwater pearls to perfection. Arranged into delicate floral designs, the hair vine added a pretty but understated bridal touch and was fixed at the crown of the head.

The bride and her bridesmaids carried matching bouquets of cream and deep burgundy red roses, accented with flashes of green foliage and hand tied with a hessian and lace bow. The wedding flowers were created by The Bay Tree at Campden florist in Chipping Campden, with the cream and burgundy theme continued into the decorations and table settings at the reception venue. 

The smiling bridesmaids wore navy spot dresses from Coast paired with faux fur shrugs and high heeled burgundy court shoes.

The ceremony was a Catholic service with Communion, and Kate & Kilian exchanged vows and rings by Gerry Summers Exquisite Jewellery  

One of Kate's favourite memories of the day was listening to the harp music during the wedding ceremony, played by harpist Jemima Phillips.

Following the ceremony, the newly married couple and their wedding guests took a short walk through the village of Chipping Campden to reach the reception venue and to take photographs, stopping briefly to warm up with hot chocolates in the quaintly cute coffee shop, The Bantam Tea Rooms

The wedding breakfast reception was held at the delightful Lapstone Barn, an 18th century honey coloured stone barn surrounded by lawns and a tree filled courtyard. 

Guests enjoyed the tympanic sounds of The Pantasy Steel Band as they sipped Carribean beers, before finding their seat from an elegant mirror table plan.

Their modern wedding cake was made by Emma Phillips. The naked three tier sponge cake was decorated with chunky hessian ribbon and fresh flowers to match the rustic influenced winter wedding theme.

Later in the evening, the couple and their guests hit the dancefloor to the sounds of The Bears, a UK pop/rock covers band, based in Hertfordshire. 

After their wedding day, Kate and Killian spent three wonderful weeks together travelling around New Zealand on their honeymoon. 

It's been so lovely looking at the stunning images taken by Hannah Larkin, thank you so much for sharing them with us. The Flora hair vine looked especially exquisite in our opinion and we love the special musical touches you added throughout your big day.
