Silly and fun… those really are the best words to describe Emma and Simon and how they are together. They are the most lovely people to spend time with. They laugh, take the micky out of each other and are clearly a perfect match. My time spent getting to know these two has been a total pleasure. We met at a wedding fair, hit it off immediately, and when we then caught up a week or two later basically spent the evening gossiping. We discussed Emmas LOVE of all things purple and did lots of ooh-ing and ah-ing over shoes. Simon was busy in the kitchen throughout most of this, undertaking his passion for baking. He was responsible for his own wedding cake and it was amazing. The guy has so much talent and Im completely honoured he has offered to make my sons 3rd birthday cake. It will definitely be better than any attempt I could do!
Anyway, back to their wedding. October 2012 was my manic month, believe it or not. Emma & Simons wedding came slap bang in the middle of the 6 fabulous October weddings I had booked in. It was a fun and fabulous mid point to a brilliant month. Their wedding was at the stunning Jacobean manor house, Charlton House. Up until their wedding this was an unknown venue to me. A little hidden charm of a place tucked away in Charlton in South East London.
The colour theme stuck true to Emmas bright and bubbly character with purple and red as the main colours. It was great to see such bright and bold flowers and bridesmaids dresses. Simon is a musician in the Army so was dressed in his full Military uniform and looking very smart. The day was full of laughter, silly faces, a flashing headband (yes, really!) and not a drop of stress or worry. Do enjoy sharing their fabulous day and I am definitely joining these two for a night out soon. You just know it would be a lot of fun (if slightly messy!)
