Sam and Lisa | The Wedding

Welcome to the fantabulous day of Sam and Lisa. Every so often in life, all the aspects of something just work, and you end up feeling like this:

Sam and Lisa's wedding was one of the occasions. Lisa's extraordinary eye for style, detail and planning, and laid-back laughing demeanour on the day plus Sam's cheeky and super loving personality coupled with a fabulous venue, lovely staff, beautiful weather has made for one of my favourite weddings ever. When I visited Stancliffe Hall with Sam and Lisa I was swooning at every turn, it really is the most wonderful venue.

A few of my favourite things:

The attention to detail. This wedding oozed with details, from cameo brooches on the flowers, to wedding photos from family history on the windowsills. Everything was crafted and delighted in, with meaning dripping from many aspects which made for an easy job for me. The bridesmaids dresses were handmade by Lisa's mum. She also made the ring pillow out of family lace. This was a well thought-through and symbolic affair.

The atmosphere. These two are very loved, which was evident from the speeches. It was a delight to over-hear this affection and to spend the day walking among it. Whilst weddings are obviously about two people committing to each other, I am often most touched by the way a couple are held in their community, how they have affected others, and what happens when those others have the opportunity to reflect that appreciation back; this wedding had this in spades.

The groomsmen. These guys were FABULOUS when it came to organising the group photos. They deserve a standing ovation for making that section run so quickly and smoothly in a short space of time. If I had a hat on, I would tip it in your direction.

On to some highlights:
