This stunning shoot is the epitome of romance, and had us swooning here at Your Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wedding HQ.
Masterminds behind this oh-so gorgeous shoot Ester Hunter, of Sugarlily Cakery and renowned photographer Kat Antos-Lewis tells us a little more about their inspiration behind this shoot that took place at Badgemore Golf Club. “A refreshing chic scheme was the focus of this shoot,” shares Ester. “Harnessing luscious soft powder pinks, luxurious gold accents, all set with powerful black backdrops. Our setting for the shoot was the glorious Badgemore Park Golf Club just outside the small market town of Henley-On-Thames in Oxfordshire. The lush green fairways and putting greens played the perfect host to our shoot.
“Our pink colour palette was to bring a playful approach, harnessing feminine undertones, brought up to a modern contemporary style with flashes of gold. Creating an opulent scheme, whilst softening the design with the use of powder and pastel colours. An utterly delightful wedding theme that offers a subtle, yet impactful impression, allowing for a wealth of accessories to tie the entire vision together seamlessly.”

Simon Linford and Katharine Sephton tied the knot at Herons Farm, Pangbourne, Berkshire, here Katharine tells us more about their day.
"The theme for our wedding was rustic and relaxed and we both fell in love with Herons Barn which fitted our theme perfectly. A beautiful 19th-century barn set in 420 acres of rolling hills and valleys. We also loved the quirky little cottages for us and our guests to stay in, each one unique with lots of original features."
"After the service we moved to the second barn for drinks and canapés. Our photographers were Zoe and Ian Warboys from Zoe Warboys Photography are an amazing team and had a wonderful way with the guests and the children. They went above and beyond for both of us and captured the day perfectly even in the pouring rain. We absolutely love our photos."

Stefan and Kelly's big day had a navy blue and blush pink colour palette.
A barn wedding venue was something Kelly had always wanted, “Lillibrooke Manor is absolutely beautiful, even more so in the summer!” shares Kelly. “The staff were so welcoming when we went to view and were extremely helpful.”
For the finer details of their day, the table plan was based on their love for Disney movies, “we used a small company we found on Facebook to create our tableplan to match our signs that we had for the doughnut wall, guest book, sweetie stand, and also to match our wedding invites,” shares Kelly.

In keeping with an English country garden theme Ben and Ellie's day was awash with colour and blooms.
“On the day, I was an absolute bag of nerves the whole morning getting ready,” recalls Ellie, “It wasn't helped by the fact that it was raining outside and we'd planned a primarily outdoor wedding. Once I saw Ben standing at the end of the aisle though, the day completely flipped and my cheeks ached by the end of the day from smiling so much. Ben was totally relaxed throughout!”
The ceremony was such a wonderful mix of heartfelt, serious and funny with a humanist celebrant marrying the couples who they felt completely understood them from the first day they spoke.

Shelley and Luke met in 2011 at a friend's party and have been inseparable ever since!
When it came to the big day, they knew instantly that the Tythe Barn, Launton was for them as soon as they walked through the doors. “Everything about the barn was perfect, from the high-beamed fairylights, to the grounds and the beautiful wisteria walkway. We both really wanted an outdoor wedding – little did we know that the English weather would not allow this – and the setting was beyond perfect!” shares Shelley. “Tythe Barn could not have been more helpful even from our initial viewing of the venue and they answered question after question in the build-up always re-assuring us and making every effort to guarantee that we could have the day we wanted.”

Becky and Howard's day was the rustic, floral extravaganza they'd always wanted. "We wanted a rustic venue that we could decorate as we wished. North Hidden Barn was a venue I had previously attended and as soon as we visited, we knew it was the venue for us - a secret gem in the Hungerford countryside!" shares Becky. "We quickly enlisted the help of Sonning Flowers, a florist in Reading that we have always used and loved. I've always had an obsession with flowers and knew they would be a big part of our day.
"It was important to us that as guests arrived at our reception, they were greeted with real wow factor as they walked into the barn, with warm, colourful textures and flowers hanging from the beams."

Jared and Sallie met while they were at secondary school, after friendship and romance blossomed Jared's proposal came as a complete surprise. “We where on a pre-Christmas get away in Florence, we where over looking the city and it was a beautiful sunny winter's day,” recalls Sallie.
The big date was set 13th April, 2019, and Furtho Manor Farm provided the perfect backdrop.
Although the happy couple visited on a grey, cold January morning, they instantly fell in love with the venue. “We thought if it looks nice on a miserable January day then we knew it wouldn't let us down. We also loved how accommodating and relaxed they were allowing us to make our wedding unique,” says Sallie.
