With peak wedding season over for 2021, I thought I’d take the time to start blogging some of my work from this year. First up I am sharing Emily and Jed’s beautiful wedding and blessing. The couple legally tied the knot in May when at the time they couldn’t have the larger party because of covid restrictions. I was honoured to still be a part of their smaller wedding in some way by capturing their couple photos after their ceremony. It was fair to say the weather really wasn’t on our side that day, with our umbrellas being blown inside out and rain pouring but it just goes to show what you can achieve photo-wise in those weather conditions.
Emily and Jed’s spring wedding and summer celebration in a Suffolk garden.
Fast forward to September 2021 and their wedding celebration in Emily’s parents garden was full steam ahead. Emily and Jed had an amazing team of suppliers on their wedding day and overseeing it all was Tori, Caroline and Harriet from The Wedding Planners. Having known The Wedding Planners for years and worked on lots of projects with them it was finally our first wedding together, and what a wedding it was!
From a beautiful celebrant blessing lead by Bridget, courtyard drinks reception, golden hour couple photos, and incredible live music that quite literally got the guests dancing on their chairs, it definitely was a wedding to remember.
Here are some of the highlights from both their Suffolk wedding and blessing. The full list of suppliers involved is at the bottom of the blog post, be sure to check them out.
