Emma & Hugh hosted their elegant marquee wedding at the Farncombe Estate (home of The Fish Hotel, Dormy House and Foxhill Manor). The wedding party got ready at The Fish Hotel, and then headed to Alderton for a traditional church wedding, and then back to the Farncombe estate for a garden reception. The driveway to Foxhill Manor and The Fish was the perfect backdrop for a few couple photos whilst the guests all assembled at the drinks reception. This gave Emma & Hugh the opportunity to have uninterrupted time with me. And then also time for everyone to arrive before their big entrance to the party.
Champagne towers, confetti cannons and their own vintage jeep! All unique touches that made the wedding memorable and personal. The groom and groomsmen opted for classic top and tails. In fact, the entire wedding felt very British and refined. Especially for a marquee wedding! Is it just me or do the flowers give Bridgerton vibes?
This was a special wedding for me to capture. The venue was unique and exclusive, but also, Emma was a school friend! Although it was a decade since we’d seen each other in person, it always feels special to witness such a huge milestone for someone you know! Emma & Hugh met a decade before as teenagers, on a beach in Lyme Regis. So of course they named the top table after the place they met! In an age where most people’s stories start with a swipe, I love this wholesome meet cute!
It was also, coincidentally, a wedding filled with industry friends. My cousin Alexandra Sinclair was doing make up, Georgina Rose Events was the planner for the day, I had my good friend Luke from LVC Photography second shooting with me, and the party was kicked off by my favourite wedding band Tux Fizz!
