Lorraine + Ben’s Wildflower Wedding
A surprise mountain-top proposal led to a wildflower wedding set deep in the English countryside.
Lorraine & Ben share a love of the great outdoors and it was only fitting that their wedding ceremony and reception venues were outside. Luckily they didn’t need to implement their rain plan, and the marquee had open sides so that the tablescapes melted into the Shibori decorated gardens.
With handmade table runners and place settings and a profusion of flowers dancing onto every surface it was Monet’s garden in Giverny mixed with A Midsummer Night’s Dream : just as Lorraine had wished for.
As befits the owners of the Michelin award-winning Joseph Benjamin Restaurant the menu was a treat. Always popular at the restaurant, dessert was a gigantic homemade fruitcake with Colston Bassett Stilton washed down with a glass of chilled sweet oloroso sherry.
Lorraine & Ben, thank you for inviting me to document your wedding day where I was surrounded by such care from your lovely friends and family. Your warmth and love for each other – as well as your utter delight in finally tying the knot – made the day so special for me and I’ll never forget it. Much love to you both.
