Debbie had returned to Wareham for her wedding to James at the impressive Lady St Mary’s Church.
We arrived to photograph the preparations. Debbie was out at the hairdressers and had left out all of the accessories with her dress so that we were able to get on. The flowers from Wildberry flowers arrived looking amazing and gradually everyone started to return from the hairdressers ready for the makeup artist.
As the make up was progressing the rain started and was becoming persistent. We were all hoping that it would pass by the time that Debbie was due to leave. Debbie was soon ready and we were able to get some bridal portraits before she was joined by the Bridesmaids and other members of the family.
We met the guys in the pub on the quay. A popular place to meet particularly when there is an earlier wedding at the church. James, the best man and ushers finished their drinks had the buttonholes pinned on and were ready to set off for the church.
The rain had stopped for Debbie’s arrival and after a few arrival shots the marriage ceremony started on time. The ceremony was conducted by the local vicar Andy who made Debbie and James feel comfortable and a little less nervous. The newly married couple exited the church to a hint of sunshine and with beaming smiles. With the formal group photos over the couple were showered with confetti before heading off to their reception in the Badsworth car from Barnes wedding cars with a glass of champagne poured by the attentive driver.
The reception was at Kingston Country Courtyard which had been decorated beautifully with some of the flowers grown by a relative of Debbie’s and the cake made by an uncle stood proud waiting to be cut. The guests enjoyed arrival drinks and nibbles while we spent some time in the gardens with Debbie and James.
We managed to get all of the guests together for a photo of everyone in the courtyard before they were invited into the barn for the speeches and wedding breakfast. There was a bit of leg pulling as some guests told James that Chelsea had lost, I saw Dave’s head drop. James and Dave had hit it off right from when they met as they are both avid Chelsea fans, well there has to be at least two!! Thank goodness it was only a joke and they had actually won. Debbie and I were much relieved.
We wish Debbie and James a happy future together and look forward to seeing them again.
