‘Thank you so much for being the most amazing photographer on our wedding day. You made us both feel so comfortable from start to finish. We are both so looking forward to seeing all the photos! We had a quick peak and they are just amazing x’ – Jess and Will
I’ve been dying to share this stunning wedding at Capheaton Hall with you! I always knew it was going to be the most incredible wedding when Jess started sharing all the pretty details of her day with me. Beautifully simple and elegant stationary, gorgeous ghost bridesmaid dresses (very similar to the Pippa Middleton bridesmaid dress), and her floral ideas which were to be created by the amazing Helen at Bels Flowers.
I met Jess and Will about seven weeks before their wedding and they were so loveable. They laughed with each other, at each other, it was infectious!!! I fell a bit in love with them, haha. In that short meeting with them I knew that they were each others soulmate.
As with all my summer weddings this year, the weather was a bit of a mix on Jess and Will’s day, but it mattered not a jot. I arrived at her Mum’s house and the sun was streaming in through the windows. The girls were upstairs all beautifully dressed in pretty bathrobes having their hair and make up done. The gorgeous flowers had been delivered and I was raring to go with capturing all the pretty details! Jess’s Mum’s house was a beautiful backdrop for all the bridal prep and I was completely in my element with her light and airy interiors.
Jess had kept her wedding dress a secret from her bridesmaids and I absolutely adored photographing the girls getting their first glimpse of her in it. I have to say she looked absolutely incredible. A model bride, beautiful inside and out. She definitely took Will’s breathe away when he saw her for the first time walking up the aisle to him.
After the ceremony Jess and Will sped off in their vintage Mercedes to the reception at Capheaton Hall, where they had drinks on the lawn and a beautifully decorated marquee for the evening. It was a stunning setting for their celebrations. I could have photographed them in different parts of the grounds all day but didn’t want to take them away from their friends and family for too long! What I did get of them on their own, I’m over the moon with. They truly are the perfect match.
Jess and Will thank you for asking me to be a part of your magical day. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together. Lots of love x
