Jonathan and Emily actually live in Singapore and when you know that it makes it even more amazing that they planned this beautiful wedding from the other side of the world.
I hadn’t met them before the day and they were actually my last 2016 booking and when they got in touch I was fully booked but loved the idea of their church wedding and a marquee on their family farm.
The farm belonged to Emily’s Grandma and is now run by her uncle and has a really special place in her heart as she has so many memories as she was growing up. When I arrived the ladies were getting ready and Emily’s bedroom was rather full of girls all getting made up and very excited! Emily got into her stunning dress with lace overlay jacket in the very room in which her Dad was born which has to be one of the most special places to get into your wedding dress I have ever come across! My first sneak peek is taken just outside this room and in the hallway where a shot of her Grandma hangs in all her finery actually on her wedding day many, many years ago.
They chose to get married at Swanton Morley Church which has to be one of the prettiest, and even better, lightest churches I have ever shot in and their ceremony was just beautiful. They walked out the church to gallons of confetti and some very enthusiastic confetti throwers which always makes the best confetti shots.
They headed off with some of their guests on the tractor and trailer driven by her uncle and arrived back at the farm for a few group photos and couple shots as the heavens were threatening to open. The sky kept getting darker and darker and we were sure it was about to rain but the guests had a wonderful time in the grounds before being called to sit.
Some amazing speeches followed with the guests in stitches and then it was time for the first dance. They had planned a fabulous choreographed first dance with confetti canons that had the guests going wild… it was so good infact that Jonathan split his trousers!
There are lots of wonderful moments from this wedding but here are five of my favourites…
