PR Manager and Managing Director tied the knot on 8th June 2019 with a ceremony at St Mildred's Church in Tenterden, then a beautiful reception locked in the grounds of Emma's home in Bethersden, Kent.
Emily was accompanied into the ceremony by her dad, towards the sound of Gabriels Obe.
"We met in January 2017, Our first date is in London but Tom was at that time living in Bristol. We became engaged the next May in Mozambique because the sun was setting on Machangulo Peninsula and married June one year afterward."
These beautiful photographs which so wonderfully capture the relaxed, family vibe, were taken by Kent and London wedding dresses photographer Matilda Delves.
"Matilda understood our vision in the beginning. We wanted more of the reportage style, especially throughout the drinks reception and speeches/wedding breakfast. We were built with a few fall into line pictures but mostly relaxed images that captured the spirit during the day perfectly."
The gorgeous, sweet little flower girls wore traditional dresses and silver shoes.
In preserving the garden-inspired vibe, the bridesmaid wore a floral dress.
"I found a dress that also had a number of our wedding colors and was ideal for my sister who had been a bridesmaid – the gown design had become the foundation of my Pinterest inspiration board."
"We didn't have an official wedding cake. I didn't want another posed for a photo moment after we'd all been built with a drink so Tom's Mum designed a red velvet cake to become served using the evening meal as pudding. Delicious!"
"We are extremely fortunate that my Dad is a trained chef and Tom’s mother is a caterer. They did all of the food and we hired a few chefs for that day."
Instead of providing favors for his or her guests, the pair put more money towards the cost of extra drinks in the bar.
"My sister is a graphic designer so did all of our invites, menus, order of service, etc. We also worked having a calligrapher called Ellen Waldren who did all of our name places, table plans, and table names within the most gorgeous calligraphy style."
The couple's first dance was to the song 'How Long Will I Love You', in the film 'About Time' – the very first movie the pair watched together. What a lovely touch.
"We both have a lot of wonderful memories. Walking into the marquee seeing all of our favorite people in a single space, seeing everyone around the dance floor and different friends chatting together."
