To the girl with the smile that lights up the room, to the guy who manages to say a lot with very few words, this wedding was filled with love and laughter.
Some of you may remember from Lindsay and John’s pre-wedding blog post earlier in the year that there was a real ‘meant to be’ vibe about these two. They had met by chance only to find out they had lived a few streets from each other their whole lives. It was surely only a matter of time before their paths had crossed.
Lindsay and John’s wedding plans seemed to continue with this pattern when Lindsay had found a wedding dress she wanted to try. No bridal shops seemed to be stocking this dress so while out searching Lindsay chanced to ask a lady in the bridal shop about it. Just by luck the assistant found they had the exact sample dress out the back which had been removed from shelf as part of a stock reshuffle. Lindsay loved the beautiful strapless Maggie Sottero gown which had hidden details throughout and knew it was the right one for her.
All 3 bridesmaids had handmade teal satin tea dresses with petticoats, all in individual styles that complimented their shapes and personalities. Also made, were cute teal dickie bows from the same material for Lindsay’s little nephews. Absolutely adorable 🙂
With a good sized wedding party, I was grateful to be able to take my time capturing the bridal preparations and have the support of Kevin McGrath at the King Billy Pub covering the groomsmen getting ready.
Lindsay got ready at her parents house with her bridesmaids and some family members. I always ask my brides to allow some time once they are completely ready so we can get some shots before they leave for the ceremony. Lindsay and her bridesmaids ensured everything ran like clockwork and Lindsay was actually ready early which left us oodles of time to get the photos we wanted.
This couple had their church service just around the corner at St John The Baptist Church in Kingsthorpe before heading to Brampton Halt for a BBQ and reception. Brampton Halt has open grills so guests were able to watch their food being cooked fresh in front of them and a mouth watering selection was offered.
The weather was still warm and bright as we explored the lake and surrounding area for some bride and groom photos, with the sun setting just as we made our way back to the marquee, following the hum of the tunes in the distance. This team were ready to PARTY!
We had such good fun at this wedding and all the guests threw everything into helping Lindsay and John celebrate this fantastic day. Kevin and I set up the Prop Corner and we had not only a tiny newborn baby in there, but also Agnes & Flora, John’s nan and Great Aunt too. At 95, they certainly set the standard high for the other guests to live up to.
Thank you so much for having us Lindsay & John xx
