I met girl Jo just over two years ago at a wedding I was photographing. She was the make up artist for the day, we got talking and realised we lived over the road from each other. Now, we’re great friends and she kindly asked me to photograph her beautiful wedding to boy Joe.
Joe and Jo got married on a warm May day at Brandon Hall Hotel. Jo and her bridesmaids got ready there with Kelsie styling hair and of course Joanne’s business Beauty Treats did the make up! (She recently won make up artist of the year at the Hair and Beauty Awards!).
Jo wore the most gorgeous dress from Dress Me Pretty (which fitted perfectly thanks to Kerry Arnold Ltd Seamstress) and her sparkly shoes were from Kurt Geiger. Her beautifully colourful bouquet was by Emily Robbins, as were her bridesmaids huge hydrangea bouquets!
Once ready the ceremony began, all captured by the ever wonderful Blue Ridge Wedding Videography – Can’t wait to see the finished film! Then afterwards, guests had drinks on the lawn and ate ice creams from Lee’s Ice Dreams. The sun went in for photograph time, but the rain held off!
After we took photographs, we went inside for the wedding breakfast. As they’re both called Jo, all their tables were famous Jo’s! The room looked lovely with a gorgeous flower wall by Occasions By Vicki and the stunning cake by Pam Cakes sat in the corner (it tasted just as good!). King Cakes Coventry provided the biscuit favours which also tasted gorgeous!
In the evening Jo and Joe performed their first dance.. They did a rendition of the video for Ed Sheeran’s song, thinking out loud. Then everyone danced the night away and took photographs in the Photo Booth.
Thank you SO much for picking me to photograph your beautiful day.
