Catherine & Steve’s Rippon Lea Estate Wedding

Catherine met Steve about three years ago when she embarked on a match making campaign for a friend and somehow ended up attending a dinner for four where she met her future husband! And yesterday, on the magnificent sweeping lawns of the Rippon Lea Estate, Catherine married her Steve in a sensational Greek/Irish fusion ceremony.

After receiving an Irish Blessing from Steve’s gorgeous 90+ grandfather, we incorporated a traditional crowning, or “Stefana” to honour Catherine’s Greek heritage, and with their first kiss as husband & wife eliciting ecstatic cheers & applause, Steve performed his army regiment’s traditional “Sabrage”, sabering the top off a champagne bottle, to the absolute delight of his cavalry colleagues and guests alike!

And seriously, could Catherine BE any more beautiful? Her smile is so contagious!
Photographer Alli Oughtred has captured the joy of this day just perfectly x
