Josie + Scott – Marleybrook House, Canterbury

Josie & Scott held their day at probably one of my favourite wedding venues – so when Josie got in touch to see if I was available for their wedding day, I did a little excited dance.

I actually knew Josie already, we went to primary school together. I remember going to her house and playing with her and her gorgeous sisters – I grew up with two sisters with a big age gap and I was in awe as to how close these girls were. They are all now grown up and adulting hard – one travelling the world, one was about to pop and another getting married – how exciting!

So my arrival to Markleybrook started with the girls all getting ready in the fabulous studio they have set up perfectly for hair and make up. I found their dresses in the stunning bedroom, Josie had chosen shades of purple for all her girls – I love how peoples visions come to life in front of them!

Scott wasn’t exactly full of nerves before the ceremony, sometimes I’m greeted with shakes when I head to the ceremony area but Scott was as cool as cucumber and couldn’t wait to see Josie.

The girls made their way to ceremony in Marleybrook’s outside ceremony area – a gorgeous garden filled with lavender and sun!

The ceremony was short and sweet, with a personal touch in the form of a poem written by one of Josie’s sisters.

After the ceremony, Josie and Scott walked back down the aisle to bubbles, and then followed probably the most awesome bagpipe player ever to where guests could enjoy some drinks and canapés.

We got some fabulous group shots with friends and families under the shade of some gorgeous trees and next to the goats they have on site. Yes, goats.
