A Vintage Inspired Wedding ~ Fairfield Boathouse Wedding

When I first met Allison and Barney, it was instantly obvious how different their personalities were but how well they complimented each other. Their wedding day was a fantastic reflection of their personalities, connection to each other and to their guests, family and bridal party. Allison and Barney were married on the banks of the Fairfield boathouse which then flowed into their cocktail reception at the boathouse. As the sun set, Duck Musique did a fantastic job of entertaining the guests as they sipped cocktails or took the row boats out on the river. As the music floated out across the river and the guests moved around the boathouse, it actually felt like you’d stepped back into a Saturday afternoon in the 1920s.  Ally and Barney looked super swish, and Allison too looked like she had stepped out of the 1920’s.  When we first met, Ally mentioned her dress would be from Gwendolynne Burkin.  I often stop and admire Gwendolynne’s dresses as Gwendolynne’s store is right around the corner from my studio. Her dresses are amazing and often have a beautiful vintage influence.  Ally’s dress suited her perfectly and looked amazing!

Congratulations barney and Allison! It was a beautiful Wedding day that I was honoured to be a part of!

    Lizzy!! You are a genius!
    Wow. We can’t thank you enough for your truly beautiful photos. You really have captured the absolute essence of our wedding exactly as we had hoped it would be (although Barney reckons his dance moves deserved a showing on the blog!) Thank you also for being so lovely and wonderful to work with as a hugely important part of our day, you’re an absolute professional xx
