Larkspur Lodge // Camilla & Tommy
Larkspur Lodge in Knutsford is a bespoke Cheshire venue boasting oak beams and exposed bricks – a perfect backdrop for your wedding.
Camilla & Tommy had such a relaxed day there in January, a perfect winter wedding!
Describe your wedding in three words
Why you chose the date of wedding (did it have any meaning?)
Anything about how you met/proposal story
I was already overwhelmed by the move and kittens so it came as a complete surprise when he proposed at the top of the White Nancy in Bollington where we live- one of our favourite places to walk too, all in the same week.
Your inspiration/style/aspirations for the day
As we live in the countryside we were keen to have our reception in barn style venue and Larkspur was perfect with the exposed brick and beams- the lighting there gave it such a romantic feel too.
We picked the colours of our bridesmaid dresses- dusty pink and groomsmen suits- neutral tweed to fit tonally with the brickwork which looked lovely in the pictures. Finally there were quite a few nice gold touches on the plates, candles and table numbers which matched nicely with the bridesmaid sequin dresses.
My dress however.. I knew I always wanted a long sleeve dress but actually my dress was the only thing that didn’t fit so well with the ‘theme’. I went in looking for a bohem style dress and came out with something completely different! Long sleeve, sparkly and backless! but I absolutely loved it so had to change my ‘own rules’ for this!
Memorable/emotional/funny moment on the day
Emotional- I found the car journey particularly emotional as it was 40 mins to and from the church so a lot of time to take in what was going on.
Memorable- Tommys aunties singing and my uncles reading in the church.
How did you discover me and why you chose me to photograph the day
Any advice for couples planning their wedding?
Are you going on a honeymoon?
We had so many compliments, but the 3 main things everyone has commented on were, the flowers (loose leaf flowers), the pianist (craig) and of course the photos!
We are so grateful to all our friends and family who came and made the day so special for us.
“We are so so happy with our wedding photos and how perfectly Jess captured our day.
Jess made us feel at ease and relaxed right from when we met her to do the engagement shoot and throughout our wedding day.
The photography was just what we wanted, effortless, laid back and not forced or overly posed.
-We also wanted to mention her husband Chris who did our videography which was equally of a high standard and we are really pleased with.
Jess is a wonderful person and it was so lovely to have her as our photographer, we couldn’t recommend her enough!
