Elizabeth and Nick got married last summer in the beautiful village of Rous Lench in Worcestershire. They had their ceremony at the local church then headed for drinks on the village green. It was such a fun wedding and even the rain didn’t dampen the day!
Elizabeth got ready at her aunts house, where the party would be held on the evening with her family. The atmosphere was full of excitement as they put the finishing touches on the decorations around the garden and Liz made up her bouquet. She then jumped on the back of her dads Lambretta and headed to the Church.
The ceremony was short and sweet at a church round the corner. During the ceremony they had two beautiful readings from both of their mums, which was really sweet. Following the service everyone headed outside for confetti and then across to the village green for drinks, music and nibbles.
It was truly a stunning DIY wedding and I was floored with just how much the couple had done and how amazing everything looked. Liz is an extremely talented illustrator (check out her work here) who not only designed all the stationary and signs, but she also arranged all the flowers including her own bouquet and she made all the amazing Mexican touches around the party. My personal favourite was the bad ass illustrations that she made which were turned into beer matts that acted as save the dates, adorable tea towels which were produced as wedding favours, temporay tattoos and snack cones. I love shooting DIY weddings because the decor is so personal. and it’s great to get a sense of the couples personalities throughout their wedding.
Liz & Nick had an Italian feast in the afternoon at the local village hall as a nod to their engagement in Puglia. Then in the evening. all the guests moved on to her aunts back garden to party for speeches and the most spectacular cake table. The first dance involved busting a move to one of my personal favourites Sledge Hammer by Peter Gabriel, and they finished off the evening with tacos and dancing.
The nicest part of the day for me was when we popped out to get a few photos at twilight, as the country scenery with the lighting was just gorgeous.
Thanks again to mega babe Kate Jackson for second shooting for me.
Elizabeth and Nick’s wedding was totally epic and had such a chilled vibe. Here’s their wonderful wedding!
