Northbrook Park, Farnham Wedding
“You are my hero!!! We both completely and utterly love them!! Literally don’t even know where to start. They are so so so beautiful and you have captured it all perfectly! There are SO many which I love! So many funny moments and so many cute ones. I love them and I love you and honestly I’m so overwhelmed at how beautiful they are and how pleased I am we found you!!! I am actually a bit gutted the only thing is we don’t really have any pics of you, you were so much a part of our day.”
Ok so, this wedding. I will probably struggle to put into words what this couple mean to me. I knew when I met Anita and Andy we were going to be friends, but to the level we’re at now I’m not entirely sure any of us expected it. I basically just bombarded my way into Anita’s planning and we probably emailed each other about thirty times in the run up to their big day.
It was a very sunny, beautiful August day and Northbrook Park was looking as glorious as ever, with the peacocks out in full force. Anita and Andy had a traditional wedding with an Asian twist, and their efforts of blending the two didn’t go unnoticed. Their wedding breakfast was a phenomenally hot yet tasty curry, and I was lucky enough to sit with the guests and enjoy all three courses, even being given my very own paper crane (which I still have!) as a place name. These two thought of EVERYTHING, the flowers were super beautiful, but not quite as gorgeous as their flower girls, who pretty much stole the show coming down the aisle. There was so much laughter heard during the whole day, and I felt so welcomed by both families.
Northbrook Park weddings have a tendency to be pretty bloody perfect, since it’s an incredible house, the grounds are stunning, and it truly is a venue that fits all seasons. But for me, it wasn’t about the prettiness of it all, the vibrancy of the colours, the giggles and tears, it was simply about love. The love between Anita and her sister, Monica, who proudly walked her down the aisle and gave a truly moving speech, the overwhelming feeling of warmth between Anita and Andy themselves, and the genuine huge hearts of their families. Least of all, the feeling I had when I left, knowing I would probably never love a couple quite the way I love these two. I even sent them a very long and waffly video message thanking them for the incredibly thoughtful, hand-made gifts they sent me a few weeks after their wedding, with a string of cranes from their day included too. These hang proudly above my desk in my office and I can’t help but smile every time I look at them.
Enough rabbiting on from me, I have chosen my faves that I feel best represent this awesome duo’s day, so have a nosey. Anita and Andy, you ROCK. Xxx
