Today I am thrilled to kick off the week with a beautiful Festival theme Wedding with a hockey twist & hints of turquoise blue.
The lovely Hannah & Matt got married on a barge on the banks of the Thames & theirs was a day of laughter, love, and fun.
Images were captured by Minna Rossi Photography.
Minna, is a friendly female wedding photographer based in London, but capturing weddings across the UK.
Her style of photography is quite natural and relaxed: a mix of candid and posed portraits, fun moments and beautiful details.
Every wedding is different and so full of emotion, and she feels it is a great joy to be part of it all.
She says of the couple and their day…
“I met Hannah, the Bride through work a while ago. she is a freelance hair and make up artist and the founder of the fabulous Festival Faces, a team of mobile face and body painters, makeup artists, hair stylists and beauty therapists.”
“She was always super nice and friendly when we saw each other so I was really pleased when she asked me to capture her and Matt’s special day.”
“The couple chose The Swan at Streatley, an intimate country hotel on the banks of the Thames, as their wedding venue.”
“It has a riverside restaurant, lots of outdoor space and a lovely old barge, where the ceremony was held.”
“I arrived on the hot July day to first capture the bridal prep – as Hannah is a make up artist, it was really important to her to have lots of photos of getting ready with the girls, the make up, details etc before heading on to the ceremony and reception.”
“They are a really down to earth couple so they wanted relaxed coverage of their day, natural portraits and a chance for their guests to enjoy themselves.”
“The venue and style was contemporary and stylish, but I loved the quirky details they had incorporated in their day.”
“From the festival themed cake, wristbands for guests to wear to “get into the wedding”, outdoor games and colourful flags on the lawn, little daisy chains for the girls and flowers for Hannah to wear in her hair it had a strong festival theme wedding vibe.”
“After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed drinks and canapes on the lawn before we did a few group shots.”
“Matt plays ice hockey so they also had wellies on hockey sticks for the confetti shot too!”
“The guests had also organised a boat ride for the couple as a lovely surprise.”
“This gave them a chance to enjoy time alone before they “arrived” again for the evening guests on the back of a beautiful, light blue Chevrolet pick up truck.”
“All in all, it was a day filled with laughter and love – just perfect.”
Thank you so much to Minna for sharing this gorgeous, colourful, festival theme wedding.
Love the nod to the Grooms love of hockey with a very original confetti shot, and a really pretty ceremony on the boat.
Love also the stunning turquoise colour palette flowing beautifully throughout the day.
