“Jonny is like one of the crowd and we didn’t feel we needed to be posed and ready the whole time. As people who don’t take many photos of themselves this helped us feel really comfortable. All I’ll say is, if you’re looking to book Jonny just do it!”

Kew Gardens Wedding Photos | Cambridge Cottage | London

Amsterdam. Dave walks into a conference Tamara was attending. He strolls in from the balcony and whisked her away to Bruges where he proposed. They stayed in an amazingly posh hotel but spent most of the night in the hostel across the road playing pool. My kinda couple!

Fast forward to their Kew Gardens wedding day inspiration. Wanting to keep with the botanical theme of Kew, they tried to keep it as simple as possible, complimenting the beautiful surroundings. The flowers were kept natural in line with this. The menu was really important, as self proclaimed foodies, so they spent a lot of time on it. Ultimately, they wanted somewhere near to London but still with a garden vibe. Looking for a huge wedding venue wasn’t on the agenda, when they saw Cambridge Cottage in the grounds of Kew Gardens both agreed very quickly it was the one. A self contained venue but set within huge grounds, bonus!

 Tell us about the wedding fashion

The dress was David Fielden 4022 and bought from Teokath of London in Wimbledon. A deserved mention must go to Chambers in Wimbledon Village who were extremely patient and amazing completing all the fittings perfectly. Limited edition Jenny Packham x LK Bennett provided the footwear. I picked the dress because of its simplicity and of course for the amazing back. My bridesmaids agreed it was the one the minute they saw it but Mum would never forgive me for not mentioning that she picked it out! Dave’s suit was bespoke from Cad & Dandy. The whole experience of having it made and fitted was one of Dave’s favourite parts of the planning. Shirt was Oscar Pink, tie Hugo Boss, braces Albert Thurston and shoes were Joseph Cheaney. Dresses for all the bridesmaids were from Coast, we picked them in an hour and a half.

Wedding day details and advice

The song we walked down the aisle to was De’ree I’m kissing you played on the harp. Our first dance was You are the best thing by Ray Lamontagne.

If I were to offer any advice for those planning their wedding now it would be don’t stress! It all comes together (but probably don’t move countries two days later either, like we chose to do).

We did have concerns about spending money on photography and now we can say we totally made the right decision! I think the style of Jonny’s photography made it more worthwhile. If he hadn’t captured so many amazing moments we may not have felt the same. Jonny is like one of the crowd. In the best way we barely noticed him and didn’t feel as though we needed to be posed and ready the whole time. As people who don’t take many photos of themselves this helped us feel really comfortable. All I’ll say is, if you’re looking to book Jonny just do it (which is incidentally, what my best friend, sister in law to one of the weddings you shot, said to me).
