Paul and Clara were married at John Ray House in Braintree on the 30th March this year. I absolutely loved their wedding, from the colour scheme, to the amazing relaxed atmosphere of the day. From there they went on to Benson Bar, also in Braintree for their reception, after taking some beautiful photos in Bocking public gardens. I loved getting to know them as a couple, talking about fairy lights and beautiful pictures by a pond, it was lovely to be able to cater to what they wanted their pictures to be. They planned their wedding in around 8 months, sorting all the little details and even changing venues! They did so well to plan it all, and this is how they did it!
From the bride herself, ‘Planning a wedding in 8 months I found a lot less stressful then I thought! Finding the bridesmaid dresses was the hardest part to find the style and colours to match. I would say, saying our vows and having our pictures taken in the gardens was my favourite part of the whole day. Everything went well, apart from I wished we paid more attention to table decorations to make sure the venue had right coloured napkins. Also a seating plan. No one seemed to mingle much . And made more timing for hair and make up. No bride likes to rush around!’
