Camilla & Tim’s English Garden Party-style Winchester Wedding
Camilla & Tim were married yesterday in one of my favourite local villages, the beautiful Crawley near Winchester. After getting ready at Camilla’s family home (which by the way I could spend all day photographing – the house is filled with interesting objects), we trotted (literally in some cases) up the road to St Mary’s Church for the ceremony. Camilla looked stunning in a modern dress, with a family heirloom veil which I was quite in love with, and looked amazing as she walked up the aisle of the beautiful church to the very capable charge of the lovely Rev. Juliet Montague.
After a simple and warm ceremony in the church (and special mention must go to the flowers which looked & smelled amazing), we returned to the house for a garden party reception. The folks at Intense Marquees & Events had provided a stunning cathedral of a marquee, studded with twinkling lights, and it was filled again with the most beautiful flower arrangements by the very talented Flowers by Clare in Chilbolton. There was a jazz band, croquet on the lawn, and mini scones & cucumber sandwiches.
As evening fell, we were treated to an absolutely gorgeous meal by Oliver & his team from The Essential Party Ingredient – highly recommended, they were efficient, polite & very capable. I along, with the occasional naughty guest, kept sneaking into the lounge to see the Olympic action – seeing Mo Farrah perform so well was the icing on the cake of a fantastic day. Later excellent wedding band The Somebodys kept the dancefloor filled until long after I had said my goodbyes.
Thank you Tim & Camilla for having me along on your fantastic wedding day, and extra thanks to the ushers who were so helpful organising the group shots, to bridesmaids Jane, Kirsty & Tors, and of course to Robin & Amanda for their unwavering hospitality and kindness throughout the day. I hope you enjoy the sneak peeks! My apologies for taking so many of Max – he was just too hard to resist…:)
