A Classy Orchard View Wedding | Laura + Renaud

When I first met Laura and Renaud, in what seems like ages ago, we all instantly connected.  And within minutes after our consultation, Laura booked us for their Orchard View Wedding and Conference Centre for the following year.

Everything fell into place perfectly as Laura texted me pictures of her fun wedding prep details, including her gorgeous Badgley Mischka studded heels that she would be wearing throughout the day.  She chose white, green, gold and lilac for her wedding colours, a perfect combination for a hot summer day.  An all white, cream and pale green wedding bouquet created by her florist, Beyond the House, that combined roses and ranunculus must have been the highlight of her details!  She went for my favourite garden-inspired bouquet style, which is what EVERY SINGLE BRIDE SHOULD DO (in my non-biased opinion haha).  She looked like a dream in her intricately detailed mermaid wedding dress from Allure Bridal.

It was a torturously hot summer day, but that didn’t phase these two one bit.  They were in heaven and made the most out of their time together in private during their first look and bride and groom portraits and with their best friends and family who flew in from near and far.  The blending of French and English cultures was fun to witness.  There were some super stylish fascinators worn by Laura’s British cousins and aunts that looked like something out of a royal wedding.  You’ll have to scroll on down to see for yourself!
