Maïra & Mark’s Beautiful Spring Chiswick House & Gardens WeddingLauraEl
Nothing could have quite prepared me for Maïra and Mark’s incredible wedding at Chiswick House and Gardens. We first met on a cold winter’s evening in a London pub over a good pint, a few of my albums and lots of exciting natter of their wedding. Typically, I had a little moment when they casually dropped into the conversation that their dogs would be at the wedding too….if you don’t know me quite that well yet, then this is one of my MOST favourite things at a wedding! They hadn’t even booked me at this point but I was literally bursting with giddiness at the thought of capturing their day…I just had to cross fingers, toes and everything in between!
They booked! Obviously!!!
Fast forward to May and I just couldn’t wait to see their vintage-boho-pastels wedding vision come to life. Maïra’s dress was seriously breathtakingly beautiful and complimented her tattoos which I know was an important factor for her. She honestly looked incredible and so serene too. I knew Mark would be bowled over by her, more so than he already was! It’s fair to say there might have been a tear or two!
Chiswick House & Gardens is one of Maïra and Mark’s favourite places as they love to walk there with their dogs, Picasso and Sherlock. It has one of the earliest and most beautiful Georgian buildings in the country, and the couple married in The Conservatory nestled in the gardens. Its beautiful light and airy feel was a dream to work with. Exploring the classical landscapes, sweeping vistas, fragrant formal gardens and a woodland wilderness for their photos was such a highlight of the day. Everywhere I looked was just so beautiful, peaceful and intimate.
Maïra made that incredible macramé hanging that adorned their ceremony and head table, along with table décor and stationary – such a talented one! What a wonderful keepsake of their day too. And those florals were just totally swoon-worthy too, right? If you love flowers, make sure you check out All for Love (link below) – their work is out of this world!
Maira and Mark’s wedding day was honestly such a glorious treat – the prettiest surroundings, the loveliest guests and more importantly the funniest, most sweetest couple in Maïra and Mark who were an absolute dream to work with.
