When Kelly rang me up earlier this year to say that her fiance, James, wouldn’t have anyone else to photograph his wedding I was honoured. When she explained James was a fashion photographer I was doubly honoured not to mention a little nervous! The couple planned a wonderful summer wedding in the grounds of Knepp Castle in Lincolnshire with a ton of fun things to keep guest amused including games, a photo booth and a fab tuk tuk decorated in flowers and garlands for rides & bathroom trips! (Sooooo much fun….I can highly recommend one. Check out the company here) The afternoon mojitos were accompanied by a live Cuban duo bringing that party feel to the sunny afternoon. Kelly, you looked like a true 50’s film star and I love your hair and make up. The fabulous Miss Pickering did the flowers (helped by the hound?) and there was a luxurious gold & pale pink theme in the marquee with grand candelabras with dripping candles (I love the real thing…so atmospheric). The elegant cake was by Couture Cakes. With James’s best man’s wife going into labour on the day of the wedding, James’s Dad stepped in at the last minute to deliver a heartfelt and funny speech on his behalf. And of course there was the star of the show, little Lily. James and Kelly’s baby daughter. Just adorable!
As the sunset late into the evening, fire lanterns were let off by the guests….some rather too enthusiastically, causing the DJ to make an announcement to to ensure the whole thing didn’t go up in flames!
I had a great day and hopefully these images capture what it felt like to be a part of this day. Wishing you all the best for your continued love and happiness Mr & Mr B!
