Ian & Joanne @ Salomons

On Saturday we travelled to Tunbridge Wells to join Ian and Joanne at their wedding at Salomons. The weather was just perfect and we started our day with a few details in and around the beautiful grounds.

We then met with Joanne for a few pre wedding photo’s of her and her lovely Bridesmaid  Emily whilst having their makeup done by Juliet of Makeup Angels.

We then met with Ian and the boys before heading off back to Joanne.

Ian and Joanne had decided on an outside ceremony and as you can see from the photo’s it was a great decision as the sun shone throughout.

After a few drinks and a few more photo’s we headed on back into the wedding breakfast which was amazing especially the Creme Brulee ! (sorry Ian)

After the speeches we had cake and coffee, the cake was fantastic, not only did it look a million dollars but it tasted perfect, all made by Joanne’s Mum.

We then had a few more photo’s outside and then dancing. Later in the evening Joanne had organized a surprise for Ian and had arranged for Tom Jones to make an appearance and sing a few songs 🙂  all in all a perfect way to end a perfect wedding day.

I often praise the ushers at our weddings but Roshan, Barry and Matt were a notch above. They were definitely the business, Thanks Guys,

Aaron and Giordana @ The Lemon Tree

On Friday we joined Aaron and Giordana for their wedding in Maidenhead on what turned out to be the first of 2 wonderful days.  We started the day with Giordana and her Mum Dee at The Hotel Du Vin in Henley Upon Thames for a few preparation photo’s before Sue & I left to meet Aaron and the guys at St Lukes Church in Maidenhead.

After a beautiful ceremony Sue & I took Aaron and Giordana to a secret location which was all my idea despite what Aaron might say 😉 . We took a few amazing photographs in wonderful sunshine and generally enjoyed 30 minutes away from the crowds.

We then headed back to Aaron and Giordana’s pub The Lemon Tree for a champagne reception on the lawn followed by a seafood banquet and a BBQ and fine music by the Live Band of Steve Trowell.

Everyone chilled out late into the evening.

Martyn and Sahira @ Whitley Ridge

On Sunday we joined Martyn and Sahira for their wedding at Whitley Ridge in the New Forest on yet another Summers day.

We started the day for a few detail shots with Sahira and then a few shots with Martyn and Bestman Steve as well as a few guests before we went in for a very romantic and emotive ceremony full of tears and laughter from most of the guests.

After the ceremony we all went into the courtyard warmed by an open fire which just took the chill off as the sun peeked in and out for strawberries and champagne as well as a few very nice nibbles.

We then wandered around the gardens for some relaxed photographs with all of the guest and then a few with just Martyn and Sahira, we then went into the wedding breakfast where we started off with speeches and cake cutting before the happy couple and their guests enjoyed some of Whitley’s award winning food from Le Poussin.

Lee and Hayley @ The Inn on the Green

On Saturday as well as being my Birthday we spent a lovely day with Lee, Hayley and their wonderful son Thomas at the Inn on the Green in Maidenhead.  It was a perfect day for a wedding and people arrived early to make the most of the gardens and of course the champagne :).

Sue & I met with Lee and the guys for a few pre wedding portraits before Hayley arrived in a wonderful Bentley driven by a good family friend. We then had a perfect ceremony with a couple of lovely registrars before spending a couple of hours on the lawns, After a few photo’s we had a scrummy wedding breakfast followed by some very emotional speeches and then again we all went into the gardens before heading back into dance. 

Sue & I had a great day and it was a perfect way to spend my Birthday, I was totally shocked when the first thing that both Lee and Hayley said to me on their special day was “Happy Birthday Jules”   I could not have chosen better people to spend it with.

Bruce and Lindsay @ Halswell House

On Friday we joined Bruce and Lindsay for there wonderful wedding at Halswell House in Somerset on what turned our to be a much better than forecast summer’s day, 

We started the day with Lindsay and the girls in the Read room and spent a couple of hours between the boys and the girls and the guests, some whom had travelled from the USA.

Halswell House is a beautiful country house surrounded by perfect grounds for enjoying a wedding and everybody did just that,

After a late but lovely ceremony ( the registrars were 45 minutes late !!!!!) we had a champagne reception out on the lawn with a few photo’s and then a stroll through the walled gardens for a few portraits before heading into the wedding breakfast and speeches and of course dancing well into the night.

Bruce and Lindsay had a great day as did everyone else at Halswell,
