Emma and Richards Summer Cameron House Wedding
The Cameron House wedding of Emma and Richard had a choreographed first dance that they learned in just eight lessons !
“We didn’t want that awkward moment when you’re in the middle of the room with everyone watching and just shuffle around”, Emma said. The lessons paid off and the couple looked amazing as they swept across the floor to ‘The One” by Kobaline
This was just one of the many great decisions Emma and Richard made in arranging their wedding from Berkshire. Planning was done with recommendations and online research rather than wedding fairs and bridal magazines. They already knew Cameron House and choosing it as their venue was one of their first decisions.
They chose a theme of rustic burlap and natural flowers of the English countryside that worked with flowers available for their July wedding. Emma gave her colour palette of dusky colours to florist Vanilla Rose so that she could choose the best seasonal flowers and, aided and organised by Victoria at All Dressed Up, the room looked sensational (see below)
Finding the photographer
Photographer Stuart was chosen from his portfolio. Emma knew he was the right photographer when looking at the photographs he sent her: “These are the right ones – this is how we want our day to be captured”.
“Stuart’s work is unique and special and captures the fun and excitement of the day as well as beauty of space,” Emma said.
Some of her favourites from the day include Richard and his groomsmen in the whisky bar at the start of the day and portraits of the two of them by the water in afternoon sunlight. “The light is amazing – it’s nice to see it captured like that.”
Emma and Richard’s humanist ceremony had two Scottish traditions. One was handfasting, the tradition of binding the hands of the couple with a ribbon or cord, from the days of the Scottish clans. They also drank from a quaich, a Scottish two-handled drinking cup. It contained a mix of two whiskies, poured by Richard’s best school friend Adam and Emma’s brother. The mix represents the joining of two families.
