Annika & James | Notley Abbey wedding
5Th May 2018 Annika & James Notley Abbey wedding video
It’s hard to beat a spring wedding and Annika and James’s was one of the best. Their day unfolded with fields of yellow and green, flowers blooming and trees in blossom at their very special wedding venue Notley Abbey. An utterly unique country house on the Buckinghamshire – Oxfordshire border, this historic house has a truly magical past. Guests started arriving, the venue was all set and decorated with amazing floral pieces by Fullers Flowers. In the bridal suite Annika looking stunning, and Katie from Frankie Rose made finishing touches to her final preparations, with James waiting nervously with friends and family for the arrival of his bride. Annika’s entrance was stunning as she walked down the aisle accompanied by String Duo’s and wearing a simple stunning dress by Anna McDonald. There was tears of happiness as they exchanged their vows and their first kiss as a married couple. Their day continued to a shower of confetti, followed by an intimate photo and filming shoot as Cheryl George photography on photos and I walked around the grounds of the house with the lovely couple. Thank you for letting me be part of your day, thanks for watching.
