Angela and James

It’s turned rather cold outside, and we’re already halfway through November! Christmas is fast approaching…it seems way too soon! Just where has the time gone?

Wedding season is all but over here at Akito, only two more weddings to go. The last one being on New Year’s Eve. So now is the ideal time for me to look back and share another fabulous wedding from the summer. A real stunner!

The Old Vicarage Boutique Hotel, in the Cathedral village of Southwell, for Angela and James’ intimate marriage, celebrating with close family and friends, on a glorious summer day in July.

James has been one of only a handful of grooms’ that had a clear idea of how he wanted his buttonhole to look. Not a traditional single bloom with foliage, but a textural mix of succulents, foliage and berries with the smallest touch of white to tie in with Angela’s modern bouquet.

And wow! what a bouquet? We were so lucky to get Angela’s dream blooms…White peonies, (we were so close to the end of their season), they looked amazing teamed with large, white protea, succulents and eucalyptus……Gorgeous!!

Loving the look on everyone’s face in this great picture, a proud dad and a special moment between bride and groom, on the verge of becoming man and wife. Beautiful images, Melissa
