The Venue and the Styling
And talking of cakes… No. 82 Cake Studio outdid themselves with this stunning semi-naked four tier masterpiece, decorated with fresh flowers.
The boys from VAAS are just amazing, it’s no wonder they are one of Subton Hall’s recommended suppliers. For Aisha and Rory they created the perfect arrangements, bouquets and button holes in whites, soft pinks and blush and lots of on-trend greenery. Because they work extensively at Stubton they know just want looks right in this environment and the results were breathtaking.
Aisha’s dress was made extra special but the fact that she had a big hand in designing it herself. Working with the wonderfully talented Kula Tsurdui, an amazing designer based in Nottingham, they created this stunning belted lace fish-tale gown with sweetheart neckline. I can’t imagine anything more perfect!
She teamed this beautiful wedding dress with a pretty chapel length veil and these stunning tino shoes in blush.
The Hair and Make Up (and their family)
On make-up duty for Aisha and her party was the lovely Ali Gunn and her hairstylist was the fabulous James White. They worked to make the whole bridal party shine and you can see here how beautiful Aisha looked after their wonderful work (that said, they had a lot to work with, Aisha is gorgeous to start with!) I loved working along side these two, they really helped to make the atmosphere fun and stress-free, with lots of giggles.
A beautiful wedding is nothing without a great crowd of friends and family to share it with, and luckily Aisha and Rory have these in abundance! You can see from the photographs how much fun the bridesmaids and groomsmen were and how close they all are. Add to that the cutest page boys and the couple’s adorable girls. Bella and Esme as flower girls, and you have a great recipe for a great day.
It didn’t hurt that they all looked amazing too!
The Bride and Groom
I don’t think Rory and Aisha stopped smiling for a second during this amazing wedding, so there were lots of opportunities to capture their real happiness. After the wedding breakfast we spent a little time together, ensuring we got some photographs that captured their romantic side, as well as the beauty of their chosen venue, Stubton Hall.
No wedding is complete without a great party to finish the day. And Rory and Aisha were determined not to let their guests down. You may have noticed the Hangover Kits included in their styling – they clearly expected their guests to have a great night with them. And they did! Their band, The White Rivers quickly got everyone on their feet after the first dance, with just a short break for a stunning firework display. What a way to finish the perfect wedding.
