Today I am thrilled to share this romantic rustic Berkshire Wedding with beautiful burgundy & peach palette.
Images were captured by Hannah McClune Photography.
Hannah McClune is a wedding photographer covering Berkshire and the surrounding counties.
She says of her work, the couple, and their day…
“I just love weddings and being able to document couple’s celebrations is such a joy.”
“My enthusiasm and experience results in modern relaxed images of people having fun with those they love.”
“Laura and Alec celebrated at The Mill House Swallowfield with a relaxed and romantic wedding day.”
“Before arriving at the hotel they had said their vows and married at Swallowfield church.”
“I just love their expressions once Laura reaches Alec at the end of the aisle, their excitement totally shines right out at you.”
“It was the first time I’d seen The Mill House Hotel marque styled with rows of trestle tables, they looked fabulous in the long space.”
“The rows of wedding seating were perfectly styled- laid with coloured linen, lace runners and small white wooden crates of flowers.”
“And just how cute are their barefoot flower girls with fresh flower garlands in their hair.”
I now hand over to beautiful Bride Laura…
How did you meet?
“We met at our local gym, Alec saw Me struggling with a weight so come to help out!”
“We carried on training together and have done ever since! I think it’s important to be able to enjoy hobbys together and keep fit at the same time!”
Tell us about the Engagement
“We got engaged at Danesfield House hotel and spa on a weekend break in Marlow May 2015!”
“It was pure luxury and they brought out a congrats cake with our evening meal and we spent the rest of our stay at the spa!”
Tell us about your wedding planning journey
“We both planned the wedding together, Alec really enjoyed getting involved and was great as we had each other’s support.”
“We knew we wanted a relax feel so went for a BBQ, trestle tables and a marquee.”
“Music was a big part of the wedding and as we watched a violinist playing our fave song on YouTube we knew we wanted it played at our ceremony.”
“I kept a scrap book of our favorite ideas and used cut outs from magazines, Pinterest was also great.”
What was the best bit of your day?
“Seeing each other in the church, that feeling when walking down the aisle trying the take everything in was amazing.”
“I’m so glad we have the lovely photos from Hannah to remind us of our special day.”
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
“Enjoy planning as the day goes so quickly.”
“Ensure you make your wedding how you want it, find a location that allows you to have as many choices as you want.”
“Our venue The Mill House was really supportive in that.”
Thank you so much to Hannah for sharing this stunning Berkshire Wedding.
Love the rich jewel tones, so warming and the marquee styling is so elegant and pretty.
