Jacqui and Jamie were married at the Wellingborough Registry Office, in Northamptonshire, on the 31st December 2016. This time two years ago I was editing their photos and getting them ready to send to the happy couple.
Both Jacqui and Jamie were so welcoming towards me in their home and after our consultation I knew it was going to be a relaxed, calm atmosphere on the day.
With hair and makeup being finished I wandered through to the living room. In there I found Alan (the cat) napping and the kids getting in some extra play time before they had to get ready.
Everything was starting to come together everybody looked wedding-ready! I love these candid shots, capturing details and all the concentration.
The more weddings I’ve been involved in, the more I’ve noticed the start of the bridal prep everyone is so chilled. With family and the bridal party enjoying getting ready and making the most of each other’s company.
Then half an hour to go, there’s a mad rush to make sure nothing is forgotten and everyone is out the door on time!
The ceremony itself was wonderful, so much love and laughter.
We took outdoor photos after the ceremony and some confetti was thrown.
I loved Jacqui’s and the bridesmaids’ fur jackets, they looked perfect against the dark purple dresses.
After the formal photos I took a ride in the wedding car with the newlyweds to take some photos in a micro-pub down the road from the venue.
I’ve never been to one before, it had so much character and was refreshing to see the happy couple in there enjoying a drink together as husband and wife.
The evening reception took place at Silk in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire and saw a lot more guests join in the evening and New Year celebrations.
I’m so lucky to have been a part of such a special day, thank you Jacqui & Jamie for a fun New Year’s Eve!
