A springtime wedding at Sanctum on the Green Berkshire – Jen & Adam.

Jen & Adam tied the knot at boutique hotel wedding venue – Sanctum on the Green, Berkshire earlier this year. I loved this venue – really beautiful and relaxed and perfect for making it your own on your wedding day. With family & friends from all over the world (Jen is a fellow South African) and Adam is Canadian, the day was one big celebration with so much happiness & love everywhere, I couldn’t stop taking photos! Jen’s gorgeous wedding dress was designed and hand-made by the very talented Alida Herbst. Jen didn’t want a traditional white/champagne colour wedding dress so working with Alida, they created a breath-taking light blue/purple dress for Jen and she looked absolutely stunning in it!

I loved how Jen & Adam really made the day their own – from Jen’s non-white wedding dress, to her ‘brides mates’ instead of bridesmaids and Adam’s ‘best woman’ instead of a best man, to the way they danced down the aisle after tying the knot, to their epic first dance doing ‘the sprayer’ together. Nothing about their day was ever going to be ordinary and I feel really honored to have been invited to capture the day for them.

Congrats again Mr & Mrs Laing, it was such a pleasure getting to know you both and I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Loved Jen’s ranunculus wedding bouquet & she wore her grandmother’s jewellery.


Jen and her dashing brides mates!


Adam and his best woman Renee looking lovely in her Two Birds dress.


I thought it was really sweet how Jen’s brides mates helped her get ready.


The food (by amazing Luke’s Dining Room) was amazing – this berry creme brulee (above) was to die for!


Instead of a wedding cake, Jen & Adam had a colorful macaron tower. All macarons were handmade by the amazing Anges de Sucre (more about Anges de Sucre here).

And the first dance had to include the sprayer…and a good sprayer at that!
