The St John URC Church is a must see if you are planning your wedding…
Although St John URC Church is not perhaps the first venue that would pop into your head when planning your wedding.. it really is incredible. The planning of the wedding is so flexible and their is not a venue we have been to that has felt so relaxed and fun.
Maarten began his wedding day at the Salthouse Harbour Hotel, on the Ipswich Waterfront. It has incredible views from the rooms looking out over the Quay, and the rooms themselves have a modern twist of decor against the brick walls. Very chic. In the bar and lounge the design is very vibrant and urban, we got some great shots of Martin on the neon green sofa, which sat in front of a black curtain on which hung a canvas of splatter art.
Unknown to Maarten, Jacqui had arranged for him to be collected in a white bentley! It was an absolutely stunning vehicle, but even better than the vehicle itself was Maarten’s expression of glee when he saw it – what a lucky man he is!
St John URC church was so full of life and laughter on the day of Jacqui and Maarten’s wedding. People were joking, singing and giggling away, it was such a positive excited atmosphere, and Jacqui looked absolutely perfect! Her dress had a delicate lace neckline which had a floral embroilment that continued over the rest of the dress. It flared out neatly onto the floor beneath where she stood. With her hair up in a veil and a light bouquet of soft pink and white flowers she looked an absolute picture. No wonder Maarten’s face lit up when he saw her!
The church was laid out especially for Jacqui and Maarten, the modern built church had high wood panelled ceilings, that sloped upwards. One thing that stood out to us about this venue was colour! Everything seemed so vibrant and the explosion of multicoloured confetti as these two left the church was undeniably wonderful.
The two finished their day at Le Talbooth in a giant marquee on the river edge. Another absolutely stunning location set in the quiet of Dedham.
