I couldn't resist an insane over share with this gallery - everything about Jodie & Dane's day was just perfect. Jodie is a makeup and hair artist that I work with regularly so it was incredibly special to be asked to photograph her wedding at Dorton House.
The venue, Dorton House is also a boarding school by day so Jodie got ready in the girls dorms (hence the incredibly pink walls!).
Their daughter Darcey stole the show all day - cute as a button and full of mischief as ever!
Laura, the maid of honour helped Jodie into her dress - an Enozani dress from Le Sposi Bridal
This is a shot that I first created on a styled shoot and since then many of my beautiful brides have asked e to recreate it. It's always a very emotional moment and definitely a photo your daughter will treasure forever.
Jodie's Dad was the sweetest father of the bride i've ever seen - is there anything better than a Daddy crying at how beautiful his daughter is on her wedding day.
Time to head across to the on-site church.
Jodie's brother (who was also a witness) forgot his shoes so had to run back home to grab them delaying the ceremony! Little things always go wrong and at the time can feel incredibly stressful but looking back I'm sure it's now a funny memory
Shoes on, brother dressed and it's time to go!
The church is small and intimate which made for an emotional ceremony.
Jodie and Dane took a moment to hide from their guests and be together while we set up for the confetti shots!
After the confetti we went straight into family formals - I always like to get them done right away so they are out of the way and you can enjoy your party without interruption.
I like to be incredibly organised with these portraits so we can get through them quickly and keep everything relaxed & fun!
If the perfect location we have chosen for family formals is too far for elderly relatives we can always make sure we still capture something beautiful in another more suitable location.
Time for couple portraits! I always work incredibly quickly to produce a romantic, relaxed and varied gallery for you. I want to reflect you as a couple and really capture your connection.
Back to the drinks reception and onto candid shots of all the guests having an amazing time!
Isn't Jodie's hair just stunning?! I always recommend Holly from Hair by Holly - her work is incredible, stays secure all night and she's an amazingly calming influence to have around on your wedding morning!
While the party continues I always pop inside the venue to capture all the details that you have worked so hard to bring together!
