CATHY + IVAN’s RELAXED SURREY MARQUEE WEDDING RECEPTION

 

This adorable and totally relaxed Surrey marquee wedding, is one that holds a special place in my heart. Cathy was one of the first people that my mum remembers after I met her at play school. It was Cathy’s fourth or fifth birthday party that had been my first invitation as a pre-schooler. So when Cathy got back in contact with me about her wedding with the lovely Ivan I was so excited! Plus I could not wait to tell my mum!

 

Intimate Summer Wedding Portraits at Cowdray Estate

 

Like so many other couples who suffered from postponed COVID weddings, Cathy and Ivan were amongst the crowd. Devastatingly they had to cancel what their planned wedding in London with friends and family when the pandemic hit. As a couple they had an intimate registry office wedding when restrictions eased. I all but thought that our working relationship would cease as well as the pandemic left so many opportunities undecided. However, when Cathy and Ivan decided to have a relaxed Surrey marquee wedding in the summer of 2021 I was so excited.

 

Summer of 2021, the year that weddings RETURNED!

 

Cathy and Ivan decided to have an intimate wedding reception with their closest friends (who were able to make it) and with others via video link! This meant that Cathy wore her first envisioned wedding dress for her family, a beautiful embroidered floral back from Phase Eight. Plus a second, more relaxed fitting dress for their reception from Hope and Ivy.  The couple had a big reveal of Cathy’s wedding dress in the garden, with a chance to take some family portraits. Then they travelled together for some couples portraits at the gorgeous Cowdray Estate before joining their relaxed Surrey marquee wedding reception and guests.
