Alisha and Jamie got married at Wantisden Valley in Woodbridge, one of the most beautiful venues I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. I spoke with Alisha about their incredible day and this is what she had to say…

The engagement…

Our proposal took place while we were on holiday in Florida. On our last day at Disney World, Jamie asked me to marry him outside the castle.

The dress…

The dress was picked on the first shopping trip. After going to a couple of shops and trying on quite a few, I didn’t think I was going to find one, however the shop assistant had found one – the last one to try on – and amazingly, the dress was called ‘Jamie’. It was absolutely perfect.

The venue…

We originally thought about getting married abroad, however we decided that we wanted all of our family and friends to attend so agreed that we would look for a converted barn and found Wantisden Valley, which was perfect.

The decor…

We wanted a vintage style theme with pastel colours, lots of lace and hessian. It was a style that we had our heart set on from the start.

The bridesmaids…

The bridesmaids wore a light, pastel mint green colour with lace detailing. Three wore long dresses and the other three wore short ones in comparison.

The groomsmen…

Jamie wore his military uniform for the ceremony and then changed to match the groomsmen who were in grey tweed suits.

The flowers…

A mix of pastel colours which was in keeping with our theme.

The cake…

We had a semi-naked, five tier cake with a flower arrangement on the middle tier that matched the bridal flowers.
