On Saturday we joined Neil and Rebecca for their amazing wedding at Lainston house, When I say amazing I really do mean amazingIt was indeed a very lavish affair with 2 best Men, 7 Ushers, 5 Bridesmaids, 5 flower girls, 1 page boy, 5 vintage wedding cars and a beautiful Horse drawn carriage decorated with the family crest, 3 videographers and us 3 photographers……….
We started our day with Rebecca at her parents house which is in the next road up from us for some relaxed preparation and make up (done by Sarah Keenan) photos as well as some fun formal photos in the gardens whilst our 3rd photographer and good pal Gareth Cooper was with Neil and the boys at Neil’s house to cover the lads, We then met at St Edmunds Church on the Avenue for a beautiful full mass service led by our good friend Father Paul followed by confetti on the steps.
We then headed off to Lainston House, Neil and Rebecca in the Horse Drawn Carriage and everyone else from the bridal party in the cars, All of the cars were supplied by our very good friend Tony from Apollo Carriage who we have worked with and featured on our blog many times, his range of cars is simply amazing, I will post the details of the beautiful horses soon but I lost the card
Waiting for us at Lainston House was the most amazing Marquee and a lovely champagne reception with Italian singers and just the perfect afternoon, we spent a couple of hours wandering around taking formal and informal photos of teh guests enjoying themselves which was particularly good for me because I knew lots of there friends from either past weddings or studio work and from growing up where I did.
We then headed into the wedding breakfast for a fun filled bumper few hours and were entertained by the 3 waiters as well as some great dancing and then speeches and then some more dancing and singing and drinking and cake cutting and wow what a cake it was thanks to ispiration cakes and then the bouquet toss and the find the ring game which is apparently an Italian classic at weddings before we moved onto the first (yeah right) dance which was equally as mad as the rest of the dancing,
All in all it was an amazing wedding and I would like to Neil and Becci for looking after us and a great big thanks to Gareth for coming along as well, it was great fun mate.
Now I think I need a week off happy days………..
Jules, Sue and Gareth.
