Emily & Joe
Orchardleigh Walled Garden
It was great to return to the Walled Garden on such a beautiful winters day. Emily & Joe were so lucky with the weather which is always good for us! The Lodge was buzzing with excitement with all 12, yes 12 bridesmaids and flower girls busy getting ready. Just before Emily was due to leave for the ceremony she was handed a delicately embroidered handkerchief with a special message on it from her Dad…very moving and a complete honour to to be a part of it. Emily was led down the aisle by her proud brother Kelvin and believe me when I say there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
Soon after the ceremony we grabbed the couple for a walk around the grounds and while we were there took a few pictures too! Back in the warm and the guests were enjoying a few drinks with canopies. One poor guest unfortunately had a malfunction with their dress so my emergency kit came in handy once again! The speeches were always going to be tough today, but throughout the day the love and support had been incredible, so when Emily’s sister Laura , took to the floor to read their Dad’s speech everyone held their breath, but they didn’t need to what a truly amazing job she did and what incredible words with a lot of humour in there too…another special moment.
With the night drawing in we asked Emily & Joe if they would like to join us outside for some stunning shots on the pergola and we’re so pleased they said yes.
Thank you so much for asking us to be part of your very special day. We left as the party was just beginning and with your first dance song ‘Have Yourself A Very Merry Christmas’ still ringing sweetly in our ears.
