St Johns Church Broadstone and Culeaze Manor, Bere Regis
This was a wedding that we were really looking forward to, Jenni and James were so excited about their wedding when we first met and they are just such a lovely couple that we were really pleased that they chose us to be their photographers.
There were some huge challenges in the lead up to the wedding, Jenni had emergency spinal surgery 5 weeks before the big day and was told at one point that she may not walk again. Jenni with her positive attitude and with the support of James and her family and friends was up and walking soon after her operation, she then had to face the fact that she may have to walk down the aisle on crutches. However, she was determined that wasn’t going to happen! Needless to say the day was very emotional.
The weather was another challenge during the week of the wedding with persistent rain which hindered some of the preparations in the marquee but with everyone pulling together all was perfect as the big day arrived.
We arrived to find a very excited Jenni and with finishing touches to hair and makeup she was keen to get into her dress. Being ready ahead of time allowed for some stunning bridal portraits.
We met James at the church looking so smart in his uniform along with the Best Man and Ushers, the church was filling up and the arrival of the red bus signalled that the bridesmaids had arrived and that Jenni wouldn’t be far behind.
The padre conducted a ceremony that the congregation will never forget, it was very personal and humourous in parts, he even opened a can of lager which he passed to James! With the formalities complete the newly married left the church to a shower of confetti and made their way to Culeaze Manor after a few family photographs.
Jenni and James enjoyed the afternoon sunshine around the grounds stopping off for some photos of just the two of them and later joined by the bridal party. A photo of everyone in the sunken garden was followed by the Pie’n’Mash wedding breakfast.
We wish Jenni and James all the very best for their future together and hope that it is full of love and laughter.
