Emily and Mark’s garden marquee wedding on their private family estate did not disappoint. In my book, nothing beats a wedding that’s stylish and just a smidge quirky. They infused their carefree and fun-loving personalities into the day, and it definitely paid off. The day was full of so much laughter and merry-making. They had so many beautiful and original details for their garden marquee wedding. My favourite detail was that each table had a captain, who were in charge of serving up the wine at the table. The guests all had so much fun with this, and it really made their day unique.

Private garden marquee wedding in West Itchenor

Emily and Mike’s day started at St. Nicholas Parish Church in West Itchenor, Chichester. Their getaway car from the church was a classic lent to them by a family friend – with perhaps a bit of trepidation as Mike took a minute to familiarise himself with the controls!

The rest of the day was spent at the family estate in a beautiful garden marquee. The estate had a massive garden and backed onto marshland with boats docked nearby. In the evening it was such a joy to steal the couple away for some much needed one-on-one time. Their day truly flew bye in a blink and they said escaping for a few precious moments meant the world to them. Thankfully I was able to capture the moment of them enjoying each other’s company.

A garden marquee wedding was the perfect setting this couple’s wedding. Taking advantage of the large family estate, it was so lovely to see the families come together to celebrate Mike and Emily.
