James and Kate's relaxed October wedding in Cambridge Cottage, Kew Gardens
Cambridge Cottage at Kew was the wonderful location for James and Kate’s sophisticated yet relaxed October wedding. Bathed in early autumnal sunshine, the colours of Kew’s beautiful botanical gardens were resplendent during the change in seasons, and James arranged a meticulously-planned treasure hunt so guests could experience the botanical gardens at their finest.
The bride’s stunning dress was complemented by a veil - with intricate lace detail – adding a vintage feel to her look. She and her bridesmaids - elegant and chic in classic French navy - held beautifully-designed bouquets in shades of pastels punctuated with splashes of blues and purples, with daisies and roses continuing the relaxed mood of the day.
Every detail of this lovely couple’s big day was personal and filled with warmth, from the countryside feel of vases filled with hydrangeas and other beautiful blooms, to individually-wrapped, hand-decorated biscuits as favours, and artistic, personalised place settings. An incredible four generations of family were present to enjoy the special day, adding to the sense of occasion, and parents’ wedding albums were proudly and thoughtfully on display.
As guests enjoyed a glass of fizz in the grounds, I took the couple to specific locations I felt would create the kind of images they were looking for: relaxed and informal memories of their wonderful day. Whilst the wedding party prepared to go into Cambridge Cottage for a sumptuous wedding breakfast, with ethically-sourced produce from Lodge Catering, we were treated to a marvellous spectacle and a wedding photography-first for me: the clouds, which had bubbled up, parted to reveal a rainbow - a striking natural backdrop for this lovely couple beginning the next chapter of their journey together.
