For Kyle & Monique we transformed this family home, back garden into a night time fairy tale of lights & love. To spend as much time possible with their guests without being pulled away for ‘formalities’ was the main heart behind Monique and Kyle’s night time wedding.
When time fly’s (which it just seems to do on your wedding day) and you have some of your favorite people in the world in one place, leaving for a couples shoot can feel like precious time wasted, so by doing a first look and their couples shoot first they got to spend every amazing minute after their ‘I Do’s’ with their special people.
Monique grew up under these trees and it is a very special place for her (and now Kyle too). The fact that this childhood garden turned into a magical place of light and laughter once the sun went down was just an added bonus. Candles, fairy light canopies and ‘sparkler confetti’ all added to the nights glow.
Family pulled together to stock the cutest ‘caravan bar’, create the most amazing bread and dessert tables and Emily made sure everyone was fed and happy with a hearty Greek menu.
We created special remembrance bottles for all those who are loved but not here, keeping family the focus of this celebration.
This simple table of collected bottles (thanks mom’s) and candles, greens from the garden and wine from their favorite wine farm, set under a canopy of lights represents my version of perfection.
‘Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.’
