A Blossom Filled Blenheim Palace Wedding

In the UK you don’t have to be called Harry & Meghan or be a Prince & Princess or Duke & Duchess to get married in a majestic palace. 

Along side the East Africa’s Serengeti, the Pyramids of Egypt and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, Blenheim Palace is an impressive world heritage site, a masterpiece of Baroque architecture and the home of the 12th Duke of Marlborough. 

Sir Winston Churchill also happened to have been born inside the palace in 1874 adding to their illustrious history!

Blenheim Palace is also the place where our bride & groom decided to say their vows in front of their nearest and dearest. 

Wearing an elegant Suzanne Neville bridal gown Kate carried peonies, sweet peas & roses down the aisle to meet her handsome husband to be. 

With it being Spring the pink blossom was out in full force providing the most breathtaking backdrop to this Blenheim Palace wedding, it also happened to be the hottest day in the UK so far this year! Kate, the youngest of 3 sisters was supported by her siblings who were joint maid of honours, and one of whom had traveled from Australia to be there for her sister.

What made this Blenheim Palace Wedding even more special was Kate & Aiden finding out in surprise that they were in fact expecting their first child! Carrying this precious cargo, Kate, Aiden & their family felt all the more ecstatic at the prospect of this sweet babe being a part of the celebrations! New life is such a miracle, and timing it is impossible so these two love birds were so thrilled to know their family was to grow! 

Having met Kate through a mutual friend over 6 years ago, her and I had spent an afternoon on a beach at a bachelorette party discussing our mutual hunt for the perfect boyfriend…we lamented the lack the choice, how hard dating in London was & and our confusion at how we both could still be single! 

Fast forward 6 years and I was thrilled to be contacted by Kate and be told she had found her man and they were due to be married! We had both come full circle in the end and it was an honour photograph her special day, despite the fact that I was 34 weeks pregnant at the time!
