I’ve always enjoyed photographing weddings at The Welcombe Hotel in Stratford so when Jo & David booked me for their wedding I was delighted when they told me The Welcombe was their wedding venue. I was even more excited when I found out the Jo’s best friend, Laura, who I also know, was her maid of honour :).
We met up a couple of weeks before their wedding to chat about their plans for their day and to find out what photos they really wanted. This would be a lovely family orientated wedding as Jo & David’s three children would feature prominently within the wedding.
Gemma was 2nd shooting for the 1st time with me today and after a quick walk around the grounds we met Jo her 3 bridesmaids and her Son & usher for the day, Connor, in the beautiful Countess suite at The Welcombe. What a wonderful asset Grace, Flo & Connor are to their Parent’s they were so polite, friendly and fun to photograph. The two twin girls made beautiful bridesmaids & Connor certainly enjoyed wielding his cane around for the day, looking every bit the gentleman.
After the service we all made our way to the garden’s for canapes, drinks and photos. After some group shots I stole Jo & David for some more romantic couple shots, around the grounds. I was particularly chuffed as it just so happened that the purple lavender was out in force which happened to compliment Jo’s purple theme beautifully.
Jo & David then spent time enjoying their day with their guests which was a great opportunity for Gemma & I to capture lots of reportage shots. It was also a great for us to relax a little and chat with their family and friend. It was obvious that Jo & David are held in high regards and I heard nothing but praise for them. What a lovely family and what an honour for me to be part of such a special day.
Here are just a few images taken at Jo & David’s wedding.
