Holm House Wedding
What an absolutely glorious day we had for Hanne and Marc’s Holm House wedding in Penarth at the start of July. This pair tied the knot amongst their closest friends and family, most of whom had travelled from Sweden to be there!
Hanne met Marc in London 10 years ago when she was travelling the UK with some friends. They decided to attend a festival where Marc’s band happened to be playing. They got talking outside the Camden venue where he invited Hanne to their next gig in London. “The rest is history! Two years later I moved over from Sweden and we have lived together since!”
Marc proposed in the sweetest way; at home in their PJ’s with their dog on Christmas Eve!
Hanne and Marc’s wedding was the first wedding that Hanne and her bridesmaids had been to, even as a guest! But you’d never have guessed as everything was organised perfectly. They had chosen a minimalist but oh-so-elegant theme of plain white and greenery which worked so well with Hanne’s sustainable wedding dress from Reformation!
As it’s not traditional in Sweden, Hanne didn’t have her dad walk her down the aisle. Instead, Marc met her at the bottom of the stairs and they walked into their wedding ceremony together to Etta James – At Last. They married under a natural wooden arch covered in greenery in Holm House’s ceremony room which is filled with natural light.
After the ceremony we took a stroll down to Penarth Pier and stopped in the gardens and on the stoney beach along the way for some photographs. They admitted to me that even though they’ve been together 10 years, they don’t have any photographs of them together! I’m so glad I got to change this for them.
“Our wedding was very laid back (like us), nothing too traditional or any wedding ‘musts’. We just wanted it to be like a day in a beer garden with all our friends and family.”
It was a pleasure to be the one to capture your Holm House wedding, thank you so much for having me and congratulations!
