On Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing Jen & Karl's Wedding which was my 120th Wedding. I started off the day at Jen's mums house where make up was well under way after they had been to the hairdressers.
The house was awash with bridesmaids as well as mum, step-dad and brother, Callum. I always look to try and find ways to photograph the jewellery the bride is wearing on the day, and found mum's fab crystal candelabra! And of course Jen's beautiful flowers!
Jen's dress was a beautiful sweetheart neck ruched dress by Mori Lee - simple and very elegant!
I headed to Brampton Christ Church where Karl, and his best man Billy were waiting for the bridal party to arrive. Karl didn't seem half as nervous as he did at the Wedding Rehersal!
Jen and her brother Callum arrived in the bridal car - whilst the bridesmaids were in their own car - and met the flower girls at the church before getting ready to walk down the aisle.
Jen was walked down the aisle and given away by her brother, a lot of emotions were running high as there were tears down the aisle, and from many of the congregation.
The Church is beautiful - and provided many opportunities for photographs - whilst following the wishes of the Church Warden. No Flash Photography, moving quietly, but no photographs behind the Vicar.
After the Ceremony and Signing of the register, Jen and Karl made their way down the aisle as the new Mr & Mrs Oxley!
The main worry that Jen had was that it would rain on the day. It was forecast to rain all day at the beginning of the week - however after a shower in the morning - when we came out of the church we had beautiful sunshine!
The Bridesmaids looked beautiful in pink with the flower girls wearing white.
The beauty in it not raining meant that we were able to take advantage of the beautiful Willow tree which sits behind the church. Before moving to the front of the church to make more bridal portraits before setting off on the way to Burntwood Court Hotel for the Reception.
Once at Burntwood, we took a few more bridal portraits in the 10 minutes we had before Jen & Karl were due to sit down for their meal.
The Speeches were delivered after the meal where they began with Callum, then Jen's Dad, before Karl and then Billy delivered their speeches! Laughs, claps and a few tears were definately shed!
After the speeches we headed outside, for group shots - and confetti - there was a quick 2 minute rain shower before we headed back outside again.
Three Siblings together!
The light was beautiful - so we made sure we used this opportunity heading into the grass with a beautiful blue sky! Beautiful!
We then headed inside before the party started, their first dance to Unbreakable - and then a bouquet throwing! It was such a lovely day! Thank you for choosing Blue Lights Photography to capture your Wedding Day.
