There is nothing like a Family Wedding…
Jo and Barry had such a lovely warm family wedding! The two both began their day with friends and family in the beautiful Yaxely hall.. Down a long corridor, whichever door you open you would find people excitedly bubbling around getting ready for the day. Jo and Barry were almost adjacent to each other getting ready, it was almost like they couldn’t bare to be far from each other – though it was probably more to keep an eye on their two lovely children! (who seemed more excited than them!)
The day already had such a cosy loving atmosphere, and we have never felt more blessed to be part of someones day. Once everyone was ready we started to capture some portrait shots of the family (they had actually been to us once before for family portraits check out some of our portrait shots on our Facebook page!). Jo Looked incredible in her strapless satan finished dress. It wrapped around her figure at the top with the folds in the dress accentuating her small waist! So simple, and so elegant.
Barry was looking more striking than ever in his black suit, his tie matching the colour of the bridesmaids dresses and his cream embroiled waistcoat complementing his brides dress. As we began to take some fun photos of all the family we realised that there was a little someone else in the exact same suit! Jo and Barry’s son was officially a mini me of Barry, the two looked great together!
The couple chose to hold everything in the Yaxely Hall yet when the evening fell the scenery changed as the guests were moved into a huge marque, decorated from top to bottom with hundreds of fairy lights. They gave off an orange glow emanating an even warmer feel to the celebrations. Barry and Jo are such a fun loving couple and their choice of celebratory food definitely reflected that! A giant chocolate fountain poured delicately in the corner for all the guests to indulge in – however I think everyone (somehow) managed to avoid spilling it on their beautiful outfits! To add to this they had a wonderfully designed four tier cake which almost looked too good to eat! All washed down with plenty of champagne meant that the blow up toys and dress up gear for silly photos was an absolute hit! (I think the adults had more fun than the kids!)
All and all a fun spritely day filled with the love and warmth of a true family wedding. We wish all the best to Jo and Barry in the rest of their lives together, here’s a selection of some of our favourite pictures from the day! Follow the journey of their beautiful day….
