Paul and Haruna organised their entire wedding from Japan. They knew exactly what they wanted and they definately achieved it. The wedding was a very happy, intimate and sophisticated affair. Haruna got ready with her mother, sister and bridesmaid Momo Ko in the spectacular main bedroom at Yaxley Hall , it was a very hot afternoon and the day was threatened with rain. Don’t you love the rain stopping doll that Haruna’s mum made and placed in the window. The official name for these is a teru-teru bozu doll, these ward of bad weather, I think these dolls are something I may start making for my English brides! The rain doll worked and we had a lovely afternoon and we weren’t effected by the rain! My favourite florist Victoria Strowger made the bouquets and did all of the stunning flower arrangements, isn’t she talented?! Before Paul and Haruna’s ceremony and before their guests arrived they enjoyed a ‘first look’ this is where they see each other for the first time before their ceremony. It is very special because it’s moment shared with just the two of them, they then had their photos done before their guests arrived which means they could then enjoy their reception and not have to worry about photos.
The dinning room table where we all sat for dinner was just gorgeous. I just loved the individual letters in each of the place cards on the the lovely long table for dinner, everyone agreed this was much nicer than a favour. The food was exceptional, the team at Yaxley Hall over delivered yet again! Most of you know I love wedding cakes, I feel I am somewhat of a wedding cake expert, I like to eat wedding cake while I’m editing their photos. Their wedding cake was delicious!!!
I loved every second of this stunning wedding, I loved the way Paul and Haruna kept looking at each other and smiling with sheer happiness, I loved the ceremony, I loved the decor, I loved the food, all in all I simply loved this wedding.
