Louise and Simon’s journey started back in 2008 on Facebook, followed by Simon’s proposal in 2014 – with a traditional bent knee! We met them during preparations for their laid back, but stunning wedding.
In the heart of East Yorkshire’s countryside, Oaklands, East Yorkshire is a hidden gem; like really hidden, should we be down this road, hidden?! With it’s gorgeous woodlands and natural surroundings, it provided the perfect backdrop for the big day!
The openness of the venue provided the relaxed, festival atmosphere that Louise & Simon wanted for their guests. From our point of view, we couldn’t ask for a more photogenic location, or bunch of people!
Everywhere we looked, there were guests soaking up the sun, either with a cool cider on the hunting lodge deck, or a glass of wine at the picnic tables overlooking the lake.
There were many highlights of the day, including amazing food from 2Chefs, a stunning cake by Lizzy at The Travellers Rest, and a top secret first dance in the woods. Louise & Simon even met Chas and Dave at their hotel, what are the chances?!
Enough waffling, have some photos!
