I first met Jo and James when I’d photographed Jo’s brothers wedding in December 2009; so it was lovely to get a message from Jo four years later about her own wedding.

The service and reception took place in the beautiful grounds of Prestwold Hall, Leicestershire. With a quartet of bridesmaids, her mum, hairdresser Soccorra Stokes and makeup artist Zoe Hines, the morning progressed smoothly as I watched Jo transform herself into a beautiful bride. Jo’s styling of herself, fine details and the whole setting was perfection! Jo wore a Pronovias lace gown with a mermaid style skirt overlaid with a sheer lace tulle finished off by a stunning Klaire Van Elton headpiece. The bride, and her bridesmaids complementing her in peach, all looked gorgeous. The short walk from the Hall to church was a great time to just soak up the emotion that were beginning to surface. James who had spent the morning with my husband and second shooter Marco didn’t let the team down; after overcoming some early nerves he waited calmly at Church for his bride to be. Resplendent in a navy Christopher Scotney suit enhanced by a blue polka dot tie. The newly weds walked out of church to sunshine and confetti and led their guests through the wilderness of the church grounds back to the grandness of Prestwold Hall. Pictures galore, as photographers, we couldn’t have asked for any more! It was really clear that the whole look of this wedding had been thoroughly thought out. Even the venue had been chosen because of the colour and tones of the walls! There were so many details that I loved, too many to mention really but I’ll have a go; out of this world flowers by Bloom Fleuriste were a delicate concoction of gorgeousness emerging out of vintage style books, the super cute page boys, with their own badges and flags saying “Here comes the bride”, the gigantic peach balloons (these had to be mentioned!) and the delicately decorated cake by Victoria’s cake company.

The golden hour never failed us either, we managed to get out and take a stroll away from the Hall as the sun was just dipping down over a very happy couple. The happiness continued into the evening with dancing to the music of a very talented band “JJ Trio” who had also been providing music earlier in the afternoon.

Everything including you, looked amazing, your guests were fab . . . . and you finished off your day with sparklers! Magical. Thank you very much for letting us be part of it . . . Congratulations  xx
