When I met Lana and George to discuss their colourful DIY wedding at Brockencote hall I was thrilled to be involved. You may recognise them from their gorgeous engagement shoot in a confetti growing field earlier this year!
Meeting at university, at first Lana didn’t think much of George and his pick up lines, but he eventually managed to win her round with his cheeky jokes. Originally from Russia Lana’s father is from Korea, so the day reflected their amazing unusual traditions.
The couple on a bag of rice, shared the special bread (whoever tears the most is the head of the household!) and then Lana’s Father singing for her before the first dance. It was beautiful and so emotional – there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
The bride got ready at Brockencote Hall – An award winning Victorian Manor House set in 70 acres of parkland. They were married at St Cassian’s Church, Chaddesley Corbet – opposite Brockencote Hall – then returned to party on! Luckily the sun shined and the rain stayed away until the evening.
Lana worked really hard creating the beautiful decorations for the day, including a Russian style treat table for the evening buffet, ribbons and cute paper pinwheels on the trees – it was so elegant and personal.
This is what Lana had to say:
“Esme is an absolute joy to be around, she made us very comfortable in front of the camera and the entire process felt absolutely effortless. We really appreciated that Esme took her time to speak to us in person prior to us booking her services, we found that very useful as it allowed us to understand her approach. Esme is very professional in her dealings with customers, she responded really quickly to our queries. We could not been happier with our photographs!!”
