Holly & Jonny - A Summer English Country Wedding at Lythe Hill Hotel, Surrey
Updated: May 19, 2020
Holly and Jonny are the type of people, where when you meet and you immediately feel like you have known them for years. During the reception one of their guests asked me how I knew them, and when I tried to explain through being their wedding photographer, they tuned to me confused and asked "yes but you must have been friends before that right?". I count myself as very lucky to have been there on their special day.
We started in Holly's room at Lythe Hill, a grade 2 listed Tudor building, elegantly combining history and modernisation, whilst she got ready with her bridesmaids and fab mum Fay. Holly's hair was styled by the super talented Nadine Messik and her make up by Laura Parson's Beauty, who also attend as a lovely guest. Holly's stunning flowers were created by Jem's Stems and were just perfect for an early summer wedding.
In traditional English fashion, there was a high risk of rain for the ceremony but not to worry, it was moved inside to the beautiful ceremony room complete with a stunningly huge vaulted sky light. The rain never came but we did have some beautiful sun shining through as Holly and Jonny said their vows, with more than a few happy tears shed by their nearest and dearest.
And with the sun out, it meant we were able to head outside for the reception drinks and photos. Lythe Hill has the most loveliest of lakes to stand as the perfect backdrop for group photos as well as many stunning spots to escape for your first time alone as a married pair during the couples pictures.
A yummy three courses and some brilliant speeches later, and we about ready to cut the gorgeous cake created by Bridesmaid Alli, the super talented face behind the Cheeky Vegan Baker. A romantic first dance followed and then party was in full swing.
Holly and Jonny spent their day surrounded by friends and family who clearly know how special they and their little boy are, with love and laughter abound. Thank you both again finding me and asking me to capture your day for you. It's been a privilege and a pleasure to get to know you both and be a small part of the beginning of you married life together as a family. Keep in touch, all my love, Annie xxx
