We set the ceremony images up in the Silver Birch Church which was just so beautiful. Completed surrounded by nature and enveloped in to the silver birch trees, what a way to get married! We used the funky ribbon bunting to line the aisles and it was a really effective way of injecting some colour.
The very amazing Danni from the Wed Hub in Plymouth, was the stylist for this shoot and she did such an amazing job. Everything came together really well thanks to Danni's finishing touches. The dresses and the suit came from her shop. She created the bright and bold stationary and she made some amazing hula hoop backdrops for the table scape.

On hair and make up duties we had the wonderful Ellie the Undo Girl and Becky Flynn. I had followed Ellie for ages on instagram and loved her work so was excited to get her onboard and I was happy to discover Becky too, they made an absolutely amazing duo and did a really great job bringing our vision to life.
