Sean + Nikki – Wedding at The Great House, Sonning

Date: August 2019
Season: Summer
Flowers: Emma Curtis
Hair & Make-up: Jo Stringer

Sean and Nikki said to me before their wedding they had been worried about the weather as their wedding fell on a bank holiday. Well…..they didn’t have to worry. Forecasters had it at 32 degrees and I can tell you by 10am it felt like 32c!

They were getting married at The Great House in Sonning. A beautiful venue set on the banks of the River Thames. Not far from George Clooney’s house.

Nikki was with her bridesmaids and mum upstairs getting ready while Sean was in the building opposite with all his ushers melting in the heat! As they were so close to each other Elise and I captured both of them before the ceremony. Luckily the ceremony room was air-conditioned so everyone was happy and it was a great relief from the heat outside.

Once inside the ceremony room Sean was looking slightly nervous but Nick his Bestman was right by his side. Elise passed him the card Nikki had saved for him, he started to open it, read the front and started welling up so had to put it back – you could tell this day mean’t so much to him. As Nikki walked down the aisle Sean cannot help but shed a tear. Nikki looked beautiful and was beaming. The ceremony was filled fun of readings and happy tears and after lining all the guests outside afterwards Sean and Nikki walked through their confetti line up to cheers! Conscious of the heat, I enlisted the help of the ushers and bridesmaids to gather family members and guests for the group shots. We managed to completed these quickly before taking Nikki and Sean away for a couple of shots. The heat was immense so I decided to leave any further couple shots until after the wedding breakfast when it would be cooler.
 

After the speeches we took Sean and Nikki out along the Thames before setting out in the private boat they had arranged for their guests. We then headed back for a sparkler shot, before the cake cutting and first dance. What an amazing day they had.

Congratulations!

Love, Lauren and Elise x
