Highfield Park | Ashley & Sophie
Congratulations to Ashley and Sophie who were married at Highfield Park on Friday.
We arrived in the morning to find Sophie busily getting ready with her friends and family. The sun was beaming which was fantastic as Sophie had her heart set on an outdoor ceremony at The Folly! Usually our weddings at Highfield Park had unfortunately due to the British weather ended up being inside but today the sun was out in full swing and it was hot!
Ashley looked very smart, he was very chilled ahead of the ceremony and full of smiles. Sophie looked stunning in her gorgeous dress and was very organised – ready in the plenty of time. All their friends and family made us feel very welcome.
After a beautiful ceremony outside we headed out to the lawns to do group shots and make use of those fabulous grounds. Ashley is a motobike enthusiast so it was no surprise he brought his bike so we did a few shots with them both, we can see that one being printed onto canvas in their house! (Sorry Sophie!)
After some lovely speeches we got to hear Ashley and Sophie’s “love story” provided by Alan Marshall. Ashley surprised Sophie and proposed to her on The One Show by arranging two aircraft to fly in the sky and sky-write a heart! What a wonderful idea, so special – we have now watched the proposal here (watch from about 5 minutes in for the proposal!) and it is so sweet. What a lovely memory to treasure!
Another wonderful surprise was a chocolate fountain arranged by Sophie’s lovely parents Philip and Louise. Provided by Sweets for Weddings Ashley was absolutely thrilled with the surprise (he seems to like chocolate quite a bit!) so it was brilliant to see his reaction.
Congratulations again to Ashley and Sophie, they are a wonderful couple and we have the up most respect for Ashley with his service for our country.
Here’s a sneaky peek at a few images so far from their special day!
