I had the pleasure of visiting White Gallery London last week during bridal fashion week in London, to get an exclusive snoop from some of the […]
This wedding in Bath had me at hello.
Submitted by the talented Simon Biffen who is a photographer I had the pleasure of meeting recently, whose passion for capturing real authentic moments is truly wonderful to witness.
Why did I love this wedding so much when I clapped my eyes on it?
Because it had a guest list of just three.
Yes you read right.
The bride and groom and the couples gorgeous son and it is just the most glorious and intimate wedding, focused around nothing more but them, their world and their love for each other.
Nothing fancy, just love.
We are not the types for a big white wedding, so an intimate day seemed like the perfect fit for us. Karin
Meet the very beautiful Karin of Estonian heritage, looking effortlessly gorgeous in her ASOS wedding dress and stylish husband Tyrone and their gorgeous son. They wanted nothing more than to dedicate their lives to each other, with the people who matter most present; just the three of them at a deliciously intimate autumn wedding.
Just gorgeous. Discover more from Karin.
Tyrone and I met through mutual friends 10 years ago when Karin moved to the UK. It was a warm summer’s evening and the three of us (including our son) went to explore a woodland in Hertfordshire.
We were walking through the woodland and arrived at a beautiful field with the sun just going down.
Our son was happily running around and as I turned around Tyrone was on one knee with a ring in his hand.
Despite his nerves, he made a beautiful speech that took us back 10 years.
We are not the types for a big white wedding, so an intimate day seemed like the perfect fit for us.
Besides all other reasons (families in different parts of the world, not keen on huge amount of attention) an intimate day for just the three of us sounded so romantic and felt just right.
We both liked the idea of a rustic autumn wedding with a boho style and nothing too formal, we used Pinterest. A. LOT.
Simon is a fantastic photographer.
Since we had a very intimate wedding day (with just the three of us), Simon was not only our photographer but also a witness.
He made our day so much fun and having him as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding day.
He captured the story of our day beautifully with real emotions.
Finding the dress was difficult because I wanted a relaxed/almost casual dress, but still special.
I tried to find a relaxed boho style dress in bridal shops, but there were hardly any – then I came about ASOS bridal section and found exactly what I had been looking for. I realised a wedding dress doesn’t need to be expensive to feel/look right.
Tell us about your wedding dress / outfit, what made you choose it? Was it hard to find?
After finding some inspiration online, we decided on a burgundy and blue colour theme for the suit and tie to match with the autumnal look. My brides dress was white, with a flower crown with burgundy autumnal flowers in it.
Both the groom and the ring bearer (our son), had matching looks, with a blue suit, burgundy tie and brown shoes.
We decided to marry in Bath at the Bath and North East Somerset register office, followed by a Botanical Gardens at Victoria Park and stayed at a lovely cottage in Priston village topped off with an evening walk over the village fields.
We had a very simple ceremony at the Bath register office. The intimate ceremony we shared between us felt very special, as well as having our son there as a ring bearer.
The whole day was wonderful. From getting ready to the evening walk in Priston village
The funniest moment of our day was definitely having great fun with questions/games during the photoshoot and dragging my dress around when it was pouring down. (Nu Bride: You would never know Karin!)
