I met Kirstyn and Chris at a wedding I photographed last year. It is always lovely to get a booking from people who have seen first hand how you work as they know what to expect on the day.
Kirstyn & Chris, along with their adorable children Braxton and Rayden tied the knot on a beautifully bright spring day. Their venue, Stratton Court Barn, was the perfect place to host their small and intimate wedding affair.
Kirstyn grew up in South Africa and her nearest and dearest relatives made the trip to the UK for the wedding. Their accent always makes me smile as my best friend is also from SA. I could literally listen to them talk all day. J
Along with her Mum, Gran and Auntie, Kirstyn travelled to Covent Garden flower market and hand picked the incredible selection of flowers that made up her bouquet and the reception décor. Each flower in her bouquet represented a different family member, which I think is a lovely way to style your flowers. Auntie then worked her magic by putting all of the arrangements together to create the finished look.
In true testament to a DIY wedding, along with the flowers, all of the jars, frames, crates and invites were handmade by crafty Kirstyn herself. Even Rayden’s (the cutest flower girl) dress was hand made by Kirstyn’s talented Mum.
K & C are such a fun loving couple with a real zest for life. Their family is everything to them and their children are a true testament to their relaxed and caring nature.
I wish them all the love in the world as they continue on their journey as a happy family.
