Green and lush, the rural Yatton Church in Herefordshire proved to be the perfect location for the late summer wedding of our real bride and her new husband.
Britten Bride Eve was all smiles on her wedding day, as Russell Lewis Photography captured each joyful moment of the ceremony followed by the post-nuptial festivities which lasted long into the evening.
Emphasising her natural beauty with subtle makeup, gorgeous bride Eve teamed her look with a soft blonde updo, all thanks to the hair and makeup team from Simply Stunning Hair and Beauty in Ross-on-Wye.
Wearing a floral applique wedding dress and matching veil from London boutique dress designer Sassi Holford, Eve accessorised her off-white full-skirted gown with shoes from Valentino and a garter from ASOS.
Sitting atop her romantic low updo, she paired her veil with the Gold Baby's Breath Hair Vine Mila from Britten Weddings. Worn as a halo hair band, it arrived just in time for her final dress fitting and from the moment she tried the hair vine with her veil she knew 'it was absolutely the perfect thing for the day'.
Talking about the hair vine, Eve said:
'the craftsmanship on it was incredible and I loved how subtle and delicate it was, adding something special but not too "blingy"'
Wanting a rural wedding that wasn't too "kitsch", Eve opted for a pared-down colour scheme that accentuated the natural setting around them, eventually going with white, green, and gold.
Her bridesmaids wore white dresses and carried foliage bouquets by Jane Edmonds at Long Barn Flowers in Worcestershire for a sophisticated yet romantic look which worked really well.
When it came to organising her special day, Eve had help from the wedding planning team at Oh So Perfect to ensure everything ran smoothly and looked perfect. Following the church ceremony, the wedding party moved to the beautifully decorated wedding reception hosted in a nearby field in a luxury Marquee from West Country Marquees, and feasted on culinary creations from A to Zest catering services and a wedding cake by McGowan Wedding Cake Artistry
After the bride and groom took their first dance as man and wife to 'You Make My Dreams Come True' by Hall and Oates, guests were treated to a little soul and a little disco from the Itchy Feet house band.
Thank you so much for sharing these stunning images from your wedding day Eve, and we wish you both the best of luck in your marriage.
