Real wedding: A relaxed and romantic day in the New Forest with a Rebecca Ingram wedding dress

A blush pink colour scheme and homemade wedding details made Laura and Russell's New Forest wedding a day to remember

Russell and Laura held their September wedding at Burley Manor in Ringwood, in the New Forest, hosting a laid-back day with gorgeous homemade touches included a DIY card box and handmade wedding favours.


Laura eschewed traditional white gowns, instead opting for a subtle blush pink wedding dress, by Rebecca Ingram, purchased from Chameleon Bridal in Bournemouth.

The unruly wedding flowers, by Jo Hicks Flowers added a relaxed feel to the day, as did the mismatched grey bridesmaid dresses that Laura’s bridal party wore.


Laura and Russell hired Jessica Hayman Photography to document their day, due to her relaxed and natural style of photography. “When we met her we instantly got on and knew she was the photographer for us,” says Laura.
