Hilary and Richard got married at Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham back in July. The day started with a casual and relaxed vibe that continued right through to the party. The couple arrived at the venue together to welcome their guests with cider and mini scones with jam and cream - a nod to the bride's cornish roots. The guests entered the gallery to a pianist playing songs from the couples favourite show tunes. Once everyone was seated, Hilary and Richard walked in together.
The ceremony was simple and elegant with two readings and the traditional exchange of rings. Once outside, the wedding party walked to the reception held at The Secret River Garden, hidden behind a high wall and opening out on to the banks of the River Thames. The garden was in full summer bloom with a tiny woodland and lush green lawn. Richard and Hilary took no chances with the weather and had hired a really fab tipi to host their sit down meal and dance floor. They thought about all their guests, especially the many youngsters and even hired children's entertainer The Little Top- complete with their own tipi bursting with activities.
Thankfully the sun was shining down for the guests to enjoy canapes, Pimms, Prossecco and raspberry lemonade in the beautiful garden.
