In emails exchanged with Ayla post-wedding, she referred to the planning, preps and day itself as a "fairytale". It's the perfect word to describe this lovely couple who were keen to let go and have a brilliant party.
I think I knew Ayla and Arron's day was going to be smooth and classy affair when I arrived at the beautiful Queen Anne house, Braxted Park for our initial meeting. There, I was met by not just an excited bride-to-be, but her Mum and future Mum-in-law as well. We took a turn around the parkland and had a great, free-flowing chat about ideas, plans and timings. It was obvious this shoot would yield some genuine, happy memories.
There is a little bit of everything in this commission. A battalion of bridesmaids, 250+ guests, drummers, dancing and cash everywhere (literally). What's not to like?!
It was a pleasure to be asked to be a part of this wedding and I guess the stats tell the tale: after 3 weeks their online wedding set had received over 65,000 separate pic views - wow. I hope they all liked the set as much as I enjoyed my involvement.
