Small Autumn Wedding with Willowby Watters dress

I love an autumn wedding and this small, intimate affair was just perfect. Jess wore a gorgeous Willowby Watters dress and the bridesmaids had the most adorable velvet dresses which were perfect for that autumn vibe.

The wedding was held at The Old Parish Rooms in Rayleigh, Essex. One of my favourite local venues, especially for small, intimate ones. It’s just a perfect space for a mini ceremony and party. And with Gather and Feast doing the catering the food is always spot on.

Ok, so back to this day. Jess got married at her parents home, which had all the retro 70’s vibes, I loved that! And then onto the ceremony which was really emotional, lots of heartfelt readings from their family and friends. Then it was a chance to grab a few photos. We took a walk round some of the quieter spots in Rayleigh as Jess and Jacob wanted more more of a ‘wild’ feel to their photos. I loved Jess’ cardigan which really suited that setting and totally fitted their relaxed wedding.

After the photos they headed back to the venue, Jess and Jacob had a bit of quiet time together and then there were some brilliant speeches before the meal.
