I was very excited to be recommended by Distinctly Floral for Sheree & John’s beautiful wedding at Cooling Castle Barn.  Two of my favourite things, Amanda from Distinctly Floral’s stunning floral creations and the historic and gorgeous Cooling Castle Wedding venue!  It was also special as Sheree & John had booked me almost three years before their wedding date(!) and a lot of time and love from both of their families had gone into the planning and anticipation of their special day.  Sheree & John opted for minimal posed bride and groom portraits and understandably simply wanted to ‘soak up’ every minute of being with their guests and everything they had created.  I myself, was excited by Sheree’s descriptions of the details of her day, I was however completely blown away(!) by just how spectacular her vision had been, Cooling Castle Barn looked utterly perfect!

Sheree had chosen a range of pink hues to create a very soft, romantic and timeless feel to her day, the ceremony centrepieces were beautiful, designed and created by Distinctly Floral

Sheree had opted for a natural and glamorous look for her hair and make up, perfectly crafted by Charlotte & Strawberry Blonde Her beautiful dress by Sophia Tolli, so many of my favourite bride dresses are Sophia Tolli!  There were lots of excited little people at this wedding too 🙂John was a truly gentlemanly groom throughout the day, always, always looking to Sheree in each moment, so very happy to be finally getting married.  I like the pic below where he settled his nerves by having some jokes with his best men at the start of the ceremony. And breathe…! “We did it!” And some of the gorgeous flowers and bridesmaids… And time for a few moments alone No matter how many times I looked around the reception room at Cooling Castle Barn I found myself always drawn into just how beautiful it looked.  The beautiful fairy lights and venue dressing were by Chicweds, stunning floral designs and arrangement by Distinctly Floral, table names/guest names and stationery from ByBlossom and the incredible LOVE letters from LightitupUK!! Ah… oh to be at Sheree and John’s wedding again!  And just a few final portraits…:)  A most fabulous end to a fabulous day, thank you Sheree & John for sharing!! xxx
