Sarah & Mark’s country garden wedding {photos by Michael Riley)

There’s a beautiful country garden feel to Sarah and Mark’s wedding, with the perfect balance of elegance and informality. Their photographer, Michael Riley, tells us about the day…

23rd of July was a blistering hot day, perfect for an outdoor wedding in the Gardens of the Fox and Hounds. About 50 guests gathered for Sarah and Marks wedding, friends , family loads of children – not least the couples own – who had various roles in the day from flower girls to ring bearer and Sarahs’ son walked his mum down the aisle. Sarah and Mark made some particularly great choices with their suppliers I think from Sarah’s spectacular dress to the cake. Moss Bros, who supplied the groomsmen’s suits, even delivered replacement trousers for one suit to the hotel on the morning of the wedding as someone had ordered the wrong size!
A relaxed afternoon tea followed the ceremony and later the wedding breakfast with the usual speeches, all catered by the Fox and Hounds.  Evening arrived bringing yet more guests with it and the celebrations moved into the bar. Where a dj and band played  and a buffet was served later into the evening. The relaxed atmosphere of the afternoon passed as the DJ and band got the dance floor really jumping – with plenty of dance action provided by the groomsmen and of course all the kids.  It was a great day filled with fun , love, laughter and as a photographer it was a great pleasure to document the day for Sarah and Mark.
A gorgeous day, and I totally agree with Mike – Sarah’s frock is fabulous!
