Jay & Ann's Happily Ever After
Jay & Ann have history. Maybe a few ups and downs even.
But they were brought back together and now they're married.
It all worked out in the end.
It worked out real well!
I met the couple through a recommendation from my hairdresser, Laura, Ann's sister. Thank you Laura.
We met again in February for their pre wedding shoot in Sandringham. I loved how well both of them dressed, it made the pictures look....well.....smart!
Now on to their big day.
It was a busy morning on the day of the wedding. I covered both the groom and bridal preparations, there's nothing like a challenge and a bit of pressure to get something right the 1st and only time.
I like the pressure!
I met with Jay and his Groomsmen 1st.
As soon as everyone was dressed i raced over to meet Ann and here family at her parents lovely house.
Ann's parents house was the venue for the wedding breakfast and reception. I think a big thank you should go out to Pete, Ann's dad, for allowing his grass to get covered by the huge marque, let's hope it grows back.
Upon my arrival Ann was ready to start applying the finishing touches to her makeup.
And then it was time for the dress.
Jackie, Ann's mum, has always wanted the staircase to be used for the 1st glimpse of the bride.
Here's Pete laying eyes on his daughter ready for her big moment.
Over at the Church; Saint Mary Magdalene in Fleet i then met back up with Jay and waited for Ann's arrival.
I mentioned in a recent blog post about Adrian the reverend of the local churches, it's a pleasure to see him each time, such a happy attitude to everything.
There was fun and smiles during the ceremony. Pete hesitated in the giving of his daughter to Jay.
And not forgetting Pete's mobile photography.....sometimes right in my way! LOL!
After the ceremony had finished and once the newlyweds had had time to meet and greet their guests we walked around the church grounds and grabbed a few shots before the short drive back to the marquee.
A fantastic marquee I should say, with the 4th wall made out of timber for a real rustic feel.
The wedding breakfast was Afternoon Tea supplied by Chocolate Fairy Catering.
It tasted good to me!
The outside bar was provided by The Old Exchange Holbeach, check them out if you're after a mobile bar for your upcoming event.
After the food was cleared away and the speeches were made all guests were given a quiz sheet to complete about the newlyweds.
There was then a fun game of Mr & Mrs ,the cause of much laughter, not to mention the odd funny face pulled.
Did someone forget to bring confetti?
I finished my day of photography off 1st with a walk with Jay & Ann as the sun was starting to go down.
And then with the cutting of the cake and the 1st dance.
Thank you Jay & Ann, Mr & Mrs Bennett-Wilson for allowing me to be part of your big day.
Thank you very much.
