Va & Joy's country house vintage prettiness
It's not often that a London planner gets to go to Wales to style a wedding so I jumped at the chance to be involved in Joy & Va's wedding. Over glasses of wine way earlier in the year we worked together to create the feminine vintage look Joy wanted to achieve.
I had lots of fun acting as florist for the day, filling these and all the bottles and vases in the main dining room (which also happened to be my props).
The biggest issue of the day was working out whether to keep the ceremony outside or bring it into the entrance hall of the house. I knew Joy really wanted it outside but the Welsh weather was being true to form and spitting ominously! We literally debated for most of the morning but thankfully luck was on our side and it held off. Hurrah.
O&C Photography captured Joy & Va's day absolutely beautifully. For the full set of images check out their blog here. Unfortunately I'd done the style set up and left before they arrived but I can certainly attest that Charis is one of the warmest, sweetest people I've 'met' in through Twitter and in weddings. So if you're getting married in Pembrokeshire, Wales or anywhere in the UK really you should definitely consider booking O&C Photography.
