Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful Fuschia Pink Wedding with Vintage Elements captured by the lovely Holly Deacon Design.
The story of this couple really resonated with me as I met MrPandP on Match.com 11 years ago, and I believe that while internet dating is not for everyone you can still be lucky enough to meet the one.
Holly who captured the day tells us about herself, “I am Holly Deacon, I am a photographer, mum, cutter and sticker, hoarder of many things useful and lots not so useful, I am an avid skip junkie, lover of buttons, string, brown paper, old books, rainbows, birds and sun through the trees. Scrabble and wine and time with my man.”
“I love taking pictures and being inspired, notebooks full of doodles and old wooden boxes, music, singer/songwriters, light, books, paper, junk shops and thai food and well….. the list goes on…..”
“I photograph weddings and people and things and places … I love my camera, my world is in pictures”
The beautiful Bride Philippa now shares a wee bit of insight into her Wedding Day,
The Love Story
“Myself and Kevin met on line via the Match dating site. We hit it off straight away!”
“Our Relationship developed quickly and we made plans to live together after nine months.”
“We got engaged just before our year anniversary. Kevin surprised me and proposed with a beautiful ring on Christmas Eve. We were at my house and he had been working all day. (Captain on a ferry).”
“We were moving house at the time so the Wedding planning was a juggling act. I lived in Eastleigh and Kevin lived in Gosport so we wanted some where in the middle.”
“As it was both of our Second wedding we wanted the Wedding in a single Venue, which is why we picked the Holiday Inn Titchfield.”
“It meant we could have the ceremony and reception in one place and as we both have children too this made it easier.”
“I did the wedding planning mainly….Kevin helped do the music!”
“I wanted a bring colour as we were getting married in the spring, hence the fuschia pink bridesmaid dresses. I also like vintage so put elements in like roses, pastel pink, butterflies and Polka dot cake, invites and my lace dress.”
“It was a lovely day.”
Best Piece of Advice
“Although we had lots of hiccups before the Big Day it all worked out well on the day.”
“Don’t forget to try and make sure you get to spend to together during the evening reception….and enjoy it!!”
Thank you so much to Holly for allowing me to share this beautiful pink wedding.
I love an infusion of colour into a Big Day and this Wedding has big personality, and a very family centric vibe which I think was very important to the couple.
Dress – Online from China (It was better than I thought it would be and custom made with my measurements.)
Pink Shoes – Debenhams.
Tiara – Jon Richards (Debenhams)

Kevin hired his suit from Charles Gale in Fareham. He wanted something different which is why he picked dark grey suits with cream accessories.

Additional Cake – Our best man surprised us by having a cake made as part of his speech. He mentioned we met on match and also we have a Pomey/Saints divide going on hence the blue/ red cake!
Flowers – Jo Anne King
Photographer – Holly Deacon Design
“We chose Holly for our photographs as I knew her from school (Our children were in the same class) and we had seen her work. I really love her style, she is so artistic and imaginative.”
“On the day Holly was great, and she took pictures when we didn’t realise she was there and she really captured the day, the colour theme, and all our family and friends.”
“Even though it was freezing cold, Kevin and I went to Titchfield Abbey for some pictures on our own. We were assured it would be worth it and it certainly was. The photos are amazing and magical, I love the romance of them and uniqueness of them.”
“The photos of the whole day really capture everything from the little bits such as my jewellery to the table layout and colour theme.”
“Overall I think Holly has an amazing artistic eye and is a great photographer! We LOVE our photos and we now have the hard job of deciding which ones to have printed now.”
