A Rainy Easter Sunday Wedding in a Red Dress
You may remember seeing Lucy and Mike on the blog before, with their engagement session which took place at their gorgeous home. Well, today I’m here to share even more loveliness as Lucy and Mike tied the knot on Easter Sunday, with a outdoor ceremony at Marks Hall Coach House followed by a marquee reception in their own back garden at home.
From the get go, Lucy was always very adamant that they weren’t very traditional, she even worried that it might not be ‘wedding-y’ enough for me, and I assured her that none of this mattered. What I love about weddings is that no two are ever the same, and when couples really take time to decide on what they want and don’t want in their wedding day, thats when it becomes perfect. A perfect reflection of them.
The day begun at Marks Hall, where it was touch and go as to whether their ceremony would take place outdoors or not. Luckily, their registrars were very laid back and let it go ahead, and Lucy stunned the crowds (and Mike!) in her red wedding dress, which she had made by a friend. The rain held off right until we finished group photographs, which typically was when Lucy and Mike had an outdoor surprise planned for Lucy’s family.
Having lost her father last year, they knew the wedding day would tough to get through without him, and a big reason why they settled on Marks Hall for their ceremony was because they were offered the chance to plant a tree in memory of Andrew, who loved walnut trees. So despite the rain, this was such a touching moment for everyone and well worth braving the rain for.
For a wedding planned in 6 weeks these two pulled off a lot! The easter details in their marquee and home were so cute, Lucy’s home economics teacher made their wedding cake and catering was supplied by Brasteds, who took over their kitchen for the afternoon. Most importantly it meant they could invite a small group of their closest friends and family to celebrate with them (and their cats of course!)
Here’s some highlights from their big day…
