Millbrook Wedding With a Midsummer Nights Dream Theme

I’m so delighted to be able to share this absolutely stunning Millbrook Wedding. Tucked away from it all, off the beaten tracks, with its beautiful gardens and woodland it really hits the spot for an idyllic secret elopement wedding. And this Midsummer nights Dream elopement was no exception.

The bride wore a stunning lilac Dulcinea Dress. Irregular Choice designed the shoes she wore. And to compliment the outfit Alice Shaw Flora, created the most beautiful bouquet and flower crown, which she wore in her soft curls which had a hit of pink.

The happy couple chose an elopement as they wanted the day to be about them, their friendship and their love for each other. They didn’t want to end up being distracted by other things and wrangled into trying to please everybody, whilst pleasing no one, and not actually having the day they wanted.

After the beautiful ceremony confetti thrown by their mothers showered the bride and Groom. And just goes to show that no matter what size wedding there is always room for confetti. And plenty of it too.

Afternoon Tea With A Furry Friend

Naked cake decorated with cherries, strawberries and blueberries

A quintessentially English afternoon tea, topped off the hot summer’s day. This included a pot of tea, sandwiches, scones, meringue, strawberries and a beautiful naked cake. All watched by their very envious pooch.
