True love and a sprinkling of fairy dust...

This was a wedding extremely close to my heart, it was the wedding of two of my closest friends Sophia and Tim. (I captured their engagement shoot a couple of months before.) We started the day at the Lime Trees Hotel where preparations were brimming with excitement. The staff there were wonderful and couldn't do enough for us.

Sophia and Tim's theme for the wedding as you can see from the beautiful invites Sophia made, was inspired by her father's drawing of a fairy, something which stems back to Sophia's childhood. They wanted a really natural, almost vintage feel to their day which they captured beautifully in their choice of details and a hint of purple. From Sophia's beautiful dress to the handmade cupcakes everything was lovingly thought out. As you can imagine I was in my element when I saw all the little details they had created, which I think helped give their day an air of magic.

The ceremony was a very intimate and personal one with only a handful of close friends and family. Sophia and Tim exchanged their vows at the stunning Guildhall in Northampton, it was the perfect venue in the heart of the town they grew up in. After a delicious wedding breakfast at The Church restaurant they completed their wonderful day back at the Lime Trees Hotel where more guests were arriving for dancing and merriment. It was without a doubt one of the most magical weddings I have been to and I feel privileged that they asked me to capture their perfect day.
