Fun-filled Minstrel Court Wedding in Hertfordshire – Amber & Wai

This has to be my favourite wedding this year for so many reasons and not just because they had the most delicious homemade cakes I had ever tasted (promise!). I don’t think I’ve had a bride who has smiled, giggled and laughed as much as Amber did and Wai was practically beaming every time he looked at his new wife. Such a joyful wedding to be a part of. I also loved how lot of friends and family pitched in to help with different aspects of the day, which just made it even more special. Plus I got to party with all my besties, which I probably haven’t done since MY wedding, so it was a fabulous day all around. 🙂

This fun loving couple got married at the quaint Beeston Methodist Church and then had a wonderful reception at the beautiful Minstrel Court in Hertfordshire. The reception was beautifully done and I thought it was quite lovely the way Wai incorporated aspects of his Chinese heritage.

Amber and Wai – thank you soooo much for inviting me to share your big day with you. You are such a wonderful, quirky couple and I know that your married life together will be just as special as you are. Looking forward to becoming an auntie – hee hee (sorry Amber, just had to join in). Love you lots and lots! Mwah!!!

Here are some of my favourite images of the day – enjoy! 🙂
