An Intimate Essex Wedding at Houchins with a Sassi Holford Gown and soft pink details

Today I am thrilled to share this gorgeous intimate Essex Wedding at Houchins with a Sassi Holford Gown and soft pink details.

The couple are Gill and Rob and they wanted a relaxed garden event with their family and friends to celebrate their nuptials.

Images were captured by Danielle Smith Photography.

She says of the couples Big Day…


Houchins is an elegant Grade 2* listed farmhouse with a rich history dating back to the 15th century, set in beautiful grounds and is THE most stunning venue in the summer!

The gardens are so well kept and were the perfect setting for a chilled out garden wedding like Gill and Robs.

Gill looked amazing in her stunning dress with lace attachment across the top half, designed by Sassi Holford.

Her pink suede shoes added some pizazz and her ivory and green flowers finished off the look.

I absolutely loved the couples ceremony, Rob is such a big softie and I knew he would struggle to keep it together when he saw how incredible his gorgeous wife to-be looked as her son walked her down the aisle.

The best part for me was when they danced down the aisle together as husband and wife to ‘Best Day of my Life’ by American Authors. It was so hard to keep a dry eye!

The rest of the day just flowed, it was so relaxed and informal and I loved capturing those candid moments between Gill and Rob.
