Kelly and Peter’s Abel’s Harp wedding in Shrewsbury was the perfect balance of fun and laid back.

The rain held off long enough to allow them the outdoor ceremony on top of the hill (with views to die for!), they had afternoon tea planned for guests instead of the traditional wedding breakfast and even had the kids involved with fun entertainment from a magician to outdoor games and in picking which Minion made which buttonhole and corsage!

Want to see their totally fun and relaxed wedding video…?

Kira, Abigal and Carter were on hand all morning to pass on messages between their Mum and Dad as they got ready separately on site. Kelly managed to bag the cosy room in Abel’s Harp and Peter opted (or maybe it was more, was told…haha) to get ready in the cute outdoor ‘pods’ on the grounds overlooking the Shrewsbury hills.

Hayley was on hand for hair and make-up for the girls as myself and Thomas Ellwood hung around capturing all the fun moments before it was time to get dressed.

Check out her stunning artificial bouquet filled with oversized Peonies and Eucalyptus alongside her white glitter Irregular Choice bridal shoes!

Kelly was very calm thanks to a nice, quiet room. She had a little moment before getting in her dress as we chatted about her Mum and how they all wished she could’ve been there (and the sweetest moment from her girls as they gave her a huge hug).

Peter admitted to me he wished he had time for a longer drive to avoid the build up but he was soon looking dapper in his suit and waiting for the arrival of his guests. And more importantly, his Bride!

Kelly stepped in to her gorgeous beaded wedding dress with the help of Hayley then posed for a few photos before her Dad came in to see her. One of the highlights of any wedding!

She was happy she managed to make him cry, he was happy to see how beautiful his daughter looked AND he got to see Abigail in a dress (she doesn’t do dresses apparently).

We were all soon making our way up the hill to the awaiting guests. The wind had picked up but their wedding guests braved the chill to watch as Kelly made her way down the aisle to her handsome Groom, Peter.

They laid a small artificial bouquet of navy and peach flowers on a chair on the front row so it was like her Mum was there as well.

Vows were said, rings exchanged and lots of smiles and tears. The children even got a little emotional on the front row as their parents were announced Husband and Wife which set everyone else off!

They soon made their way back down the winding hill to enjoy drinks in the yard and have their posed groups wedding photos done.

The kids found both the garden games and the confetti fun as they got to burn off some energy before everyone was seated inside.

Their magician entertained everyone at their tables due to the rain sweeping in outside and he got a few people involved to embarrass them along the way (always great for the video haha).

Afternoon tea was served and they even incorporated their Minion theme in to some of the sweet treats too!

When all the guests were suitably stuffed the champagne was poured and both the Father of the Bride and Peter the Groom stood to do their speeches.

The room was then swiftly turned around to make space for the danefloor.

As they were doing that we snuck Kelly and Peter out for a few couples moments in a carpark. Sounds glamourous doesn’t it? I know it doesn’t but just look at the gorgeous footage we got!!!
