Rustic DIY Wedding with Homemade Wedding Dress

Tom & Ebony had a rustic DIY wedding in the beautiful Kent countryside, and it was a wonderful day. The bride, founder of ELBo (Ebony Lea Bromfield original), gave herself the very brave task of designing and making her own dress! Her grandmothers were both dressmakers too, so I guess it’s a skill that runs in the family. But not only did Ebony choose to make the most important dress she’ll ever make in her life – she also made the bridesmaids’ culotte jumpsuits too! I loved the originality in all the outfits, especially in choosing not to have the bridesmaids in dresses as is usually traditional.

A classic Volkswagen camper van provided transport to and from the ceremony – a journey complete with wedding champers of course! Hoath House was the evening’s location, with it’s characteristic building and stunning views over the grounds. The gorgeous outdoor setting was eventually dampened with a downpour of rain, seeing everyone grab a chair and dash inside for the speeches instead! But this did nothing to dampen everyone’s moods. Ceilidh dancing topped off the evening, not only with the bride and groom’s first dance but all the guests were up and dancing straight away too. It was such a fun end to a great day – thank you Tom & Ebony for choosing me to capture it all. It was so hard to choose only some of the images to tell the day – there were so many great ones but here are my favourites.
