What gorgeous people Jess & Will are - and what a dream to photograph them!
After two newborn shoots for their sons, I was so happy when I heard that these two gorgeous parents were getting married
~ and delighted when they booked ME as their wedding photographer! Thank you, I am always so honoured to play my part.
Jess & Will celebrated their day at the incredibly beautiful Parley Manor, in Christchurch, Dorset.
The weather was a perfect July day, the ceremony was in the outside Pavillion and the sunset that evening was sublime.
One of my favourite weddings ever!
Will and I first met in December 2012. Will plays football for a local team and we met at a Christmas football function. The drinks were flowing and we started chatting. At the end of the evening he took my number and the rest was history you would say.
Will surprised me with a trip to New York for my 30th Birthday. We went to New York that Christmas of 2016. The trip was so very romantic. During the trip, Will had arranged a visit to the Rockefeller Centre ice rink. Will was showing me some of his best moves on the ice and then surprised me when he pulled out a box and flashed a sparkly diamond ring and with that he popped the question. Of course I said Yes with no hesitation, it was such a romantic surprise.
I was excited to plan our big day and there was no question of the venue for ~ Parley Manor was at the top of the list as we had attended so many beautiful weddings there. Parley manor made the planning effortless and captured our needs and visions perfectly. All we had to do was sort the dresses.
Our day was magical and surpassed all our expectations. The guests had a wonderful time.
My favourite part of the day was the afternoon, after dinner, where the guests and I could relax and mingle in the stunning setting sun.
You captured the spirit and happiness of our day and we will always have those memories to treasure.
My top tips for planning your special day would be to keep true to your visions and wishes, remember, it’s your day.
I would also highly recommend getting yourself a super photographer so that your day will be with you forever and the moments that passed you by in all the excitement can be remembered.
