Her kommer et bryllup man bare må elske. Stemningen, smilene, gjestene, kyssene, atmosfæren, påfuglene, lokalitetene, omgivelsene i Northbrook Park, bryllupskaken, de lekre detaljene og ikke minst brudeparet. Finland & England; herunder henholdsvis Maija og Davis, ble lykkelig forent nå i sommer gjennom en storslagen feiring, som vi selv kunne ønske vi kunne vært en del av, fordi det ser så utrolig hyggelig ut (og fordi vi gjerne vil gå med stor & flott hatt!). Og det er takket være den fantastisk dyktige - og prisvinnende brylluspfotografen Marianne Taylor Photography, som også er publisert worldwide i kjente magasiner - covere, både online og i printutgaver. NWB forstår godt hvorfor troner høyt opp i sjangeren; hun fanger det ekte så magisk, og akkurat så vakkert og fint som det øyeblikket føles. Så derfor, len deg tilbake og nyt en en moderne Jane Austin roman; fortalt billedlig vakkert.

- Best memory from the day: The ceremony, you can’t explain the feeling of the I do’s until you say them but I found it totally overwhelming and incredible.

- Couples tip to other couples: Enjoy it all. The planning can get intense, but remember everyone who’s there on the day just wants the best for you – if you’re both having a great time, they will too!

- Inspiration behind the celebration: Our whole theme came from my family roots; we used thistles in honour of my late grandfather as my dad’s side is Scottish, which gave us our midnight blue colour scheme, and carried the motif through the details of our day. We also liked the idea of a very natural look, using pine cones from our family home in Finland as table decorations, David made the boxes for the centrepieces from skirting boards and our dear friend Giles Miller made our table plan from his company Giles Miller designs from re-used wood and mirror.

- Why Marianne Taylor: I have always loved her photography, she is very subtle and understated and gets very natural shots. She makes you feel very comfortable on the day and makes you really see the fun side to taking the photographs. Her photos always look so romantic. I didn’t know Marianne was Finnish until we had booked her but this was also a massive help with the Finnish relatives on the day!

FOTOGRAFEN FORTELLER: Maija & David’s wedding day at one of my favourite Surrey venues was full of sunshine and laughter from start to finish. I don’t think I stopped smiling all day, starting from when Maija got into her Romantica of Devon gown and Jimmy Choo‘s, all the way through to one of the most epic first dances ever, and the Hold Tight Band making the dancefloor go crazy at the end of the evening. 

It was the first time we worked with videographer Adam Nicholas and I have to say it was an absolute pleasure. I love working with service providers who realise we all have the same goal, to create a beautiful day and memories for the couple, and that the best way to do that is to work as a big, caring team. Unfortunately that’s not always the case. While on the subject of other vendors, I have to give big ups to Moodies Catering for doing a brilliant job, Fancy that wedding cakes for the stunning tower of a cake, and  To Have & To Hold for the classy stationery.

Northbrook Park really showed us it’s best, and even the peacocks were in a festive mood. Thank you so much Maija & David for having us along for the ride!
