Helen and Jai's October wedding took place in the beautiful setting in Little Wymondley, at the Priory Barn which is nestled down a little country lane surrounded by fields and streams. It was decked in beautiful colours of apple red, burnished gold and navy blue and every little detail was handmade by Helen and Jai. Before I went there I first met up with the girls getting ready and was greeted by a teary bride-to-be who had just moments before opened a gift from her soon to be hubby. Jai had thoughtfully made her this little book about all the reasons why he loved her, including photos from the engagement session we had at Richmond Park a few months before. Even I welled up reading through it! Bubbles and laughter flowed and Helen looked amazing in her beautiful custom made lace gown. I went off to find the boys at the barn and had a good snoop round at all the lovely little things while we waited for Helen to arrive.
What I loved the most about this wedding was how easy going Helen and Jai were. And it was apparent how important their friends and family were to them. They had friends dating way back from their school days. When I first met Helen and Jai and asked them what they most looked forward to on their wedding day, it was to spend time with those important people in their lives and enjoy each others company in an amazing relaxed setting with fabulous food and lots of drink!
The speeches were hilarious, (this is definitely one of my most favourite parts of the day), and we managed to catch a few photos before the sun went down - I am missing my long evenings. The DJ was hilarious and I managed to come away with the nickname 'Snaps', along with a full belly from all the food, and an aching face from all the laughing.
Thanks H + J for being such a great couple and sharing your amazing day with me xx
