Amy and Alasdair got married this May at the gorgeous Mytton & Mermaid, which is an understated coaching inn in Shrewsbury. It was a beautiful day and even the weather played ball!
Amy got ready at the bridal prep suite at the Mytton and Mermaid with her bridesmaids, and the atmosphere was full of excitement. She then walked the short distance to get to the ceremony.
The ceremony was a legal ceremony in a beautiful room at the venue. The room wasn’t very big but it was very packed with all of Amy and Alasdair’s guests. During the ceremony they even had their beautiful dog, Ralph there. He was stood at the end of the aisle with Alasdair, waiting for Amy to arrive. It was so beautiful and such a personal service. After their ceremony we headed out into the courtyard of the Mytton and Mermaid where Amy and Alasdair had buckets of confetti thrown over them. Confetti tunnels are always some of my favourite parts of a wedding day, you get a lot of interesting faces going on.
The reception was in a private room at the venue. They chose Mytton & Mermaid because it’s so cosy and relaxed and they could totally personalise it. It was a really relaxed wedding, which I love, it always means that not only are the couple relaxed but so are all their guests. I love shooting Mytton and Mermaid weddings because it’s usually really relaxed. It also helps that the venue is only 10 minutes away from my house!
They had a drinks reception in the afternoon, and lots of cake and doughnuts in the evening. In my opinion any wedding can be improved by copious amounts of doughnuts! They decorated the venue with flowers and lots of colour, because they wanted to keep it simple. The decor they chose worked really well together. I particularly loved the pink theme they had throughout the whole wedding. The groom’s tie was pink, the bride’s shoes were pink and there were lots of pink flowers dotted about everywhere. Even Ralph joined in on the pink theme, with his pink bow tie.
For dinner they had proper wedding grub, which was absolutely delicious. The Mytton and Mermaid is always pretty prized for it’s food and after eating that, I can certainly see why. The first dance was a personal favourite of mine, it was Video Games by Lana Del Rey, and they finished off the evening with a huge buffet.
The most memorable part of the day was when Ralph got involved in the group shots, because he’s just the best. Dogs at weddings are pretty much the best thing ever.
Amy and Alasdair’s wedding was so much fun and had such a chilled vibe. Here’s their Mytton and Mermaid wedding!
