There’s just so much that I love about this wedding!! Firstly, Tarnia and Fred are one of the loveliest couples that you could hope to meet. Secondly, they chose to hold their wedding at one of the most beautiful and historic venues in the UK, Loseley House in Guildford.
However, what made the day so special and unique was that every aspect of their wedding (except me!) was managed and created by family and friends as a wedding gift, from the hair and make-up through to the table settings. And yes, it does help when those family members just happen to be some of the most talented and respected professionals in their fields! Named ‘Dumbledore’s Army,’ for the wedding, they comprised of professional set designers, illustrators and cake designers.
The couple were so assured of their remarkable talents that they gave them the job of designing the entire wedding breakfast room from scratch, with absolutely no input from them. In fact, they were kept in the dark about everything until the big ‘reveal’ on the day.
What Dumbledore’s Army managed to create was simply one of the most amazing rooms that I have ever seen….…with one of the most stunning cakes I have ever had the pleasure of photographing!
