Handcrafted UK wedding: Tori + Oli
Not everyone happens to live near a ruined church overlooking the countryside, but should you be as lucky as today’s bride (or know someone that has access to such a treasure), we’d highly recommend saying your ‘I Do’s’ alongside such pretty historical remains. It might sound like a far-fetched idea, but when you see these photos by Caught the Light, you might just flip your lid. The landscape and flowers alone are enough to call it magical, but then there’s the guests’ fashion, chocolate truffle cake, absolutely stunning bride + groom, and a bounty of cute handmade felt hearts that make this wedding ace!
Tori grew up on the farm just below the hill that holds the above ruined church and had always known it was where she would get married. Can you imagine?
Such cute and simple invites designed by Tori herself!
Don’t you just love the fashion that’s going on in these guest shots?
We tried to use colour in a modern way by just having pops of colour coming from the flowers and accessories. The flowers were supplied by Oli’s Granddad who is a very talented Dahlia breeder. He actually named a new Dahlia after me, “Norfolk Bride” which I had in my bouquet. I didn’t want the flowers to be too structured – we wanted an outdoor, picked from the garden, rustic wild theme!
My dad lovingly restored a series one Land Rover for us to leave the church in – something he’d always dreamed of doing and using at my wedding.
My Mum and I made coloured felt heart badges for wedding favors – which were also used as napkin rings.
This moist chocolate truffle goodness of a cake was made by good friend Georgina Fuggle. It was her first time making a wedding cake!
Congrats Tori and Oli! You most deliciously pulled off your dream wedding in style.
