Carousels and castles – a circus wedding in Hay-on-Wye

pink rose and peony brides bouquet

Roll-up, roll-up, next up in the round-up of summer weddings is the fun-filled wedding of Annabel and Karl, who tied the knot in style at Hay Castle in Hay-on-Wye back in July. This wedding had everything you’d ever need for a crazy, happy celebration from a red double decker bus and a fairytale horse and carriage to take the guests and bride to the church to vintage fair-ground games, a bouncy castle and even a full sized carousel for the reception!

The couple chose the supremely talented Andrea Dovey Photography to capture their happy day, and I am totally in love with her photos, beautifully capturing the details and sheer joy of the day.

The flowers echoed the vintage romance of the day, with lots of perfect pink roses and peonies, complementing the mint green colour of the bridesmaids dresses and the vintage-circus colours of the day.

Without further ado, I’ll let the photographs do the talking….enjoy xx

Wow, what a wedding, and as I said, captured beautifully by Andrea Dovey Photography. Thanks so much to Andrea for letting me share and of course big thanks to the lovely new Mr & Mrs Hopkinson; Annabel and Karl for booking me to be a part of this amazing day xx

To finish here’s a few more of the floral details of the day, taken by yours truly on my phone so lacking the finesse of Andrea’s images!!
