Mart & Mika live in Japan but decided to have their blessing at The Matara Centre. After a lovely blessing in the beautiful courtyard, Mart & Mika and all their guests walked through the woods for a tree planting ceremony. They planted a cherry tree (very important in Japanse culture) and all the guests tied ribbons on it – making a wish as they did so – this is what makes the Matara Centre such a unique and interesting wedding venue for those who love nature & tranquility. Mart & Mika are back in Japan now – such a happy couple who laugh all the time!
Well we’ve had the worst summer ever but on this particular day the weather was amazing – lucky Lucy & Steve! I hadn’t done a wedding at The Matara Centre, which is near Tetbury in the Cotswolds before, but had heard wonderful things about it & was very excited to be able to shoot their wedding there. They had a really lovely wedding day and I’m so pleased we were able to get some gorgeous shots of them in the evening when the light was amazing.
