Elena is the kind of person who has an elegant, beautiful presence that you just can’t help but notice. As she posed for the morning bridal portraits she reminded me of a ballet dancer and sure enough Elena told me that she’d grown up dancing in Russia and it has never left her.
Grant charmed guests with his kindness; amidst all of the things he must have had on his mind that morning, he still found time to make sure I didn’t leave without one of the Russian doll favours set aside for me! Their shared kindness and happiness was evident in every part of their beautiful wedding and it was very moving to see just how happy they were to finally be married.
I was also smitten by the lovely blue colour that Elena & Grant had chosen for their wedding. I adored the unique blue floral arrangements and to see how the delicate details had been threaded through to so many parts of the wedding. I have focused on a few of the beautiful details here as well as a few of my favourite portraits taken in their beautiful venue, Chilston Park Hotel… thank you Elena & Grant for sharing…xxx
I loved this touch of putting fresh flowers in the hair as well, very pretty indeed! Elena’s striking dress was bought at Moscow’s Domvesta
And some dancing in the aisle to celebrate.. why not?!
Elena’s bridesmaids had travelled from Russia to be there for her special day, this was one of my favourite bridal party portraits… such great friends!
The wedding breakfast was so pretty and colourful…
And this stunning cake was by Sophisticakes
Time for a couple of evening portraits…
and then to the first dance and time to get the party started! Great music and sparkly dance floor by Discologic…
The bride and bridesmaids set the tone for the rest of the party… lots of dancing and having a good time please!!
