Its Friday! It's the Bank Holiday! Time for some pretty photographs to celebrate :)

I absolutely love this set of wedding photos – they tell the story of a beautiful, relaxed, outdoor and rural style wedding celebration between a couple clearly very much in love with each other – the chemistry between these two that jumps out from the photographs is almost palpable!

Deb and Dan got married on 10 July 2010.  Dan is a musician, and inspired by the Summer Festival scene, the couple chose the fabulous Brick House Farm in High Halden, Kent as their venue; "Glastonbury
festival
was our inspiration. We wanted a laid back feel, good music
and somewhere we could sit around a camp fire late into the night.  We
also wanted to camp with our friends. 
The venue had everything we were looking for – a huge farm with
lakes, tipis to sleep in, a beautiful barn, vintage style with bunting
and mis-matched china etc…"

These lovely images were captured by London and surrounding Counties Wedding Photographer and Wedding PHoto Journalist, Mark Carey; "We found Mark locally
and loved his style. After a trip to Hastings for a pre-wedding portrait
shoot we were confident we'd found a fantastic photographer for our
wedding day. THe photos really capture the feel of the wedding."

Deb wore a beautiful Jenny Packham dress called 'Petra'…

"I love all Jenny Packham dresses so it was inevitable I would have one for my wedding day. I tried on all the Jenny Packham dresses in the shop and nearly missed this one until the shop assistant gave it to me as I'd dismissed it on the rail as not a flattering shape!  I loved the detailed beading which gave it a very vintage style look in keeping with the wedding…"

"My shoes were Marks & Spencer wedges! After splashing all my budget on the dress I
was so excited to find a perfect pair of wedges for the farm for the
bargain price of £20…"

Dan is a musician and had recently
written a piece of music that I loved so we asked a friend to play it on
the keyboard as I walked down the aisle…

Forgotten Flowers!

"Halfway through the
ceremony I realised I'd forgotten my bouquet!  Standing on the veranda
of the shack overlooking the lake and farm I could see all of our
friends and family gathered for the wedding and it was a wonderful
feeling to see them all waiting for me. My dad shed a tear and we had a
glass of prosecco before walking across the farm to the ceremony barn."

Flowers Found…

"My sister bought the flowers from a wholesalers and created the table centres and
my bouquet herself. We went for a wild country theme to suit the farm -
peonies, sweet peas,thistles, pots of lavender and herbs . We used
lavender from my grans garden for the place names.

Festival Style Decor…

Deb and Dan used a selection of bunting, straw
bales, jars of lemon sherbets and fruit to decorate their beautiful wedding venue…

"We put up framed pictures of our
parents and grandparents on their wedding day and heart wire frames with
pics of ourselves growing up. The venue had dressed the ceremony barn
with dried hops which looked great…"

Words of Wisdom…

"Get
your friends and family involved – my sister, mum, gran, mother in law,
aunties and friends all made things for the wedding which made the day
so much more special to us  and their help in bringing it all together
was invaluable."

    Lovely images, I love it when brides plan for an outside wedding instead of being stuck inside a hotel function room. Beautiful image of the groom kissing the bride on the head.

    This looks like such a relaxed affair and you can just tell by the photos that its was a chilled out as can be. The photographer caught the essence of the day and that definitely is a set that you can look back on fondly with the kids and say ” Look at Mum and Dad when we got married ! ”
