The laughter did not stop on Amber and Joe's wedding. I arrived at one of my fave venues to find preparations in full swing. I could hear the girls giggling and music playing as I walked up the beautiful staircase to the bridal prep room. All my girls were having such a ball chatting, laughing, eating, drinking. Amber was in her element and absolutely loving every single moment of her most amazing day. I was delighted to see two other familiar faces there, Chloe doing all the girls make up, and her sister Jen, one of Amber's bridesmaids. I photographed their mum's wedding a few years ago! All the girls looked absolutely stunning and it was an 'aaahhhhh' moment when they put their minty green bridesmaids dresses on.
Amber's mum arrived overjoyed to see both her daughters looking so gorgeous, and got misty eyed seeing Amber in her dress, which I completely adored. I also had a La Sposa gown for my wedding! Good taste ;) Her sister Clarissa was so excited and watching the two girls together was really sweet as they joked, laughed, and cried (Amber kept telling her off as she didn't want her makeup smudged). Joe had delivered the most unusual gift I have ever seen for his bride to be, and sent everyone into and emotional spin as Amber unwrapped a beautiful, hand picked rose that had been preserved in platinum! I mean, wow! (She found a keeper there...!).
Half of Amber's family are from Italy, so it was just brilliant being a fly on the wall and listening to them all catch up and chatter in their home tongue. Joe even did a speech in Italian which must have been moving as they all shed a tear.
The day was just perfect. I know I always say it, but it's so true. I loved it all. The staff as usual were brilliant at Plum Park, and there was nothing too big an ask for any of us to make the day go smoothly. Everyone was just non stop laughing, smiling, hugging, it was just such a happy day to be a part of. Amber and Joe are so well suited together, they are perfect. It was a proud day for both families to be united together.
I wish these two, and all their loved ones, such happy times ahead. Thank you for having me capture some special memories. Some of my faves xx
