I met up with them at Lainston House Hotel near Winchester, a superbly impressive venue and a beautiful English country hotel. I could have shot there all day, there were so many little gardens, lawns, walls and even a crumbling old chapel just perfect for beautiful wedding photos.
The couple, Andrew and Amy (no, a different Amy!), were getting married at a nearby church and Emma and Amy (who I shall call Amy F. for clarity) had about two hours to decorate all the tables. A skillfully-crafted wedding cake was already set up, the flowers on it exquisitely detailed and nicely complementing the table centrepieces.
Emma and Amy F. set up tall, elegant pedestals for displays incorporating roses, hydrangeas and peonies.
The tables were named after golf courses and the head table was naturally “St. Andrew’s.”
Emma also got to give advice on the placement of button holes!
Their work finished, we even got to see the bridal party before they left for the church with the bouquets prepared by Emma.
Thanks to Emma and Amy F. for inviting me to see them at work!
