Driving through Derbyshire is always so beautiful. Isobel and Dionn got married within the Chatsworth estate - and really, if you haven't visited, you should! The grounds are beautiful and it's a perfect place to walk and take time to breathe, enjoy the surroundings and then go to sample some cake in the tea rooms afterwards!
Isobel and Dionn chose the most delightful colours for their day. Soft pinks, deep purples, luscious greens. The decor and florals were simply stunning and we got to work with the extremely talented Swallows and Damsons again. One of the most talented florists we've ever worked with. Isobel's style was decadent and the richness of the colours she chose, were perfect in the setting of Chatsworth.
Isobel's had great vision for her day and even designed the dress herself, working with Elizabeth Malcom who made it so perfectly.
Isobel and Dionn opted for a 'First Look' before the ceremony, which is something we always recommend if timing is short or if light is limited. Winter weddings don't leave for much light in the afternoons and so having a First Look is perfect. If you've not heard about a First Look, it's simply the Bride and Groom opting to see each other before the ceremony. If you aren't too fussed about traditions, and are open to something new, it's a really special time where both of you connect - away from all your guests, soak each other in, and we get some beautiful portraits. You then are more free to relax with your guests and enjoy everything else - as the time we would have taken you off for portraits, is now regained. Isobel and Dionn had their First Look within the Orangery, and the light pouring through the glass is just dreamy.
The day was warm, with blue skies and sunshine. A perfect autumnal day. Isobel and Dionn had a Jewish ceremony conducted by their son, who spoke fluent Hebrew. And they opted for one large table during the reception - where family and friends gathered for a feast - a true banquet!
