Love birds, Emily and Ben, were married at Ratcliffe College, and celebrated in style at Bawdon Lodge farm on the 2nd September 2017.
This gorgeous bride oozed happiness, her smile got bigger by the second, and how can I not mention her beautiful dimples! A complete natural in front of the camera and enjoyed every second; with not a nervous look in sight. The morning preparations began at Emily’s mums’ house where she was joined by family and her bridal party. All dressed in amazing floral, satin robes they looked nothing but radiant, as they had hair pinned up and make up applied. It was a beautifully intimate morning of pre wedding drinks, sharing gifts with one another, and making memories. The floral theme continued as the Bridesmaids swapped their dressing gowns for floral dresses, all hung up on handmade, personalized wooden hangers. The bride looked beautiful in a sweetheart fishtail, lace gown, complimented with fresh flowers pinned in her long loose curls. The Groom and groomsmen waited patiently for the Bride, who was walked down the aisle by her very proud brother, and the couple were made Husband and Wife, in Emily’s old school, how cool is that?!
Arriving at a farm is one thing but arriving at a farm with the celebrations taking place in a huge double tipi is another! This venue was amazing, styled with a rustic feel bringing the outdoors in, with the personal touch with photographs of them both on their journey leading up to that day. A saxophonist played as guests were welcomed inside to be seated, whilst the happy couple took some time in the sunny countryside to take it all in.
The best man got creative with the speeches by using a projector to get their laughs as well as sharing a special dance with the Groom, and Emily’s big brother, spoke from the heart as he reminisced about Emily as a girl. The evening turned to a foodies dream, with marshmallows toasting on the open fire pits, and a burger van, which were de-lish!
All full of food and love, with the drinks flowing, this wedding party was ready to dance the night away, and that’s exactly what they did!
We wish Emily and Ben all the very best in their future together x
