Helen & Rob’s intimate winter wedding was my last wedding for 2012 and it was absolutely stunning. Helen wanted the day to feel like a “cosy Christmas with a hint of sparkle” and it definitely did! Just a few short days before Christmas, they tied the knot at Wasing Park and Helen looked stunning in her halterneck Maggie Sottero wedding gown. Despite the rain & cold, we ventured outside for the couple photos and Mr & Mrs Boakes were absolute troopers! Helen had a pair of chocolate brown Wellies on hand (perfect for our outdoor adventure), as well as a cute pair of Vivienne Westwood Heart Lady Dragon Shoes for the rest of the day. From the flowers to the candles in the church, to the wonderful pine cone place cards on the tables and hundreds of candles everywhere – Helen & Rob’s cosy Christmas wedding was absolutely beautiful. Helen made her own wedding cake (super impressive) and also designed the invites herself – a very resourceful & creative bride, love that! :-)
Helen & Rob, congrats again on your fabulous wedding day, it was such a pleasure to have been a part of it. Enjoy the photos!
This is Kai McKenzie – amazing Michael Buble tribute act. I had to literally do a double take – he looks just like him (and sounds just like him too!) Amazing.
