Roxanne and Efe tied the knot at Millbridge Court this past Summer and I had the absolute pleasure of capturing the festivities. We did their engagement session in Surrey last year and I honestly couldn’t wait for their wedding – Mr & Mrs Ekhaese is one seriously stylish couple (click here to check out their forest engagement session).
The day arrived and the sun was out in full force – perfect for their outdoor wedding ceremony in the arbor at Millbridge Court. Styled beautifully with floral design by Jodie from Boutique Blooms, the tone for the day was elegant with a touch of glamour. Knowing how stylish Roxanne is and what an amazing figure she has (Roxanne is an incredible Personal Trainer with a dedicated Bridal Body Doctor guide – a must if you’re a bride-to-be who would like to get in shape), I was excited to see the wedding gown she had chosen. It completely exceeded my expectations…a beautiful bespoke creation by Anita Massarella, it was a simple design with breath-taking detail and it complemented Roxanne to perfection.
Some of my favourite images from the day were taken during bridal preparations, where Roxanne’s mum and Efe’s mum helped her into her dress, before her father entered the bridal boudoir and saw his little girl, ready to get married. The look on his face was priceless and I may have welled up a little bit while capturing these moments! ;-)
The civil ceremony took place in the arbor, followed by a beautiful blessing led by Rev. Johnny Douglas, which had everyone in fits of laughter with a few tears here and there too. After an epic confetti exit, the happy couple celebrated with their guests, making the most of the hot, sunny afternoon and Kalm Kitchen outdid themselves yet again with delicious, beautifully styled canapes.
The wedding speeches were a real highlight of the day. Roxanne’s father had compiled a wonderful slideshow of moments they had shared as a family while Roxanne was growing up and it also included lovely memories of loved ones who couldn’t be at the wedding. Such a special touch and it really showed how close they are as a family.
After the meal, Roxanne & Efe opened the dance floor and a short while later Roxanne surprised Efe with an incredible choreographed dance routine, which she has put together with a few of her friends. It was seriously impressive and the look on Efe’s face was priceless! You can see more of this incredible routine in their wedding video by Jane Louise Films.
Roxanne & Efe, thank you for choosing me to capture your wedding. I had such a wonderful time with you and your guests and I’m over the moon that you love your photos. I wish you all the love and happiness in the world and really hope our paths cross again.
Here are some of my favourite images from the day.
