When I look back at Claire & Dean’s beautiful wedding day at Oakwood House it’s like looking back on the wedding of a couple of friends. Claire & Dean have such a kind nature about them; you can’t help but feel happy in their company! From their fun engagement session on Whitstable beach in the summer to their stunning Autumn wedding, getting to know them has been a great experience and I was thrilled to be part of this special day in their lives.
I loved how everything they had chosen for their wedding blended so perfectly. Upon arriving for the bridal preparations I got my first clues(!) as to how gorgeous this wedding would be; sparkly Kurt Geiger shoes, amazing dress embroidery and the softest and prettiest of bouquets. The beautiful details and colours that Claire had chosen were a perfect complement to the golden hues that were to follow, all offset against Dean’s striking military uniforms and the dark blue of the bridesmaid dresses!
Claire’s beautiful hair comb is from the Jon Richards collection
The stunning floral arrangements were created by Elli Cawse floral design. Claire’s incredible dress was designed by Sophia Tolli
Claire had a great support team; her two best friends Laura & Emma were on ‘standby’ throughout the morning!
Claire’s beautiful make up was created by Helen Lee
Dean was meanwhile busy preparing everything at Oakwood House
And the moment has finally come!
As soon as Claire & Dean were together, all of the nerves just disappeared…
A few portraits whilst we waited for the rain to stop..
Love this picture, I often ask guests to joke amongst themselves after the group picture, there was no stopping this wedding party!
Claire and Dean made taking romantic portraits look easy!
J’adored(!) the table plan.. very clever.
Such beautiful and perfect touches created the most perfect ambience…
Congratulations Claire & Dean!! xxx
