Boconnoc House, Cornwall Wedding

We were lucky enough to get to known Rachael and Wes when we met them at Chris and Elly's awesome wedding in Portugal the previous year.  If that wedding was anything to go by, we knew these guys know how to celebrate and PARTY, so we couldn't wait to see them all again.  It was also a rare treat to be shooting locally at Boconnoc House, a gorgeous stunning country estate in South East Cornwall. 

Wes and Rachael's wedding is featured in the current issue of WED magazine where she says how she noticed Wes immediately when their paths first crossed.  It was the same for Wes too, and you can hear more about that in the little video of their special day below.


Jewish & Jamaican Fusion Wedding

Karla-Jayne and Joel met in Rio just over three years ago and had a mere three weeks to get to know each other, before Joel headed back to NYC and Karla-Jayne had to return to London.  They knew immediately though that they had something special, so spent the next two years trying to make sure they were somehow and in some way in the same country together for as long as possible to make it happen.   And it has happened.

"The Biggest Jew-Maican Wedding of the century" is how they described their day to us when we chatted over Skype in the lead up to their big day, and what a party combination that was!

Here's a glimpse of what we saw.

Oh 2017, what a start you have been...

I can't believe it's the middle of May already and I know the rest of the year is only going to fly by equally fast so, before it's all a fleeting memory, I wanted to capture a glimpse of what the last 5 months of weddings have looked like.

I always say that the first wedding of the year sets the tone of what's to come, and we honestly could not have asked for a better couple, or better wedding, to kickstart our year (there's a sneaky glimpse below, but rest will follow once Rock n Roll Bride has featured the wedding)  Thank you, Michaela and David.

The start of April saw Chloe and Ed's wedding which also meant we had a chance to see the gorgeous Jess and Mike again (Chloe is one of Jess's gorgeous sisters) and another fabulous London wedding at Stoke Newington Town Hall followed by the reception next door at the Old Church (two favourite venues!)  Whilst the end of April took us to Midhurst for Sophie and Adam's gorgeous day where even the persistent rain could not dampen the party spirits. We also got to catch up with the lovely Rhi and Ollie (I do love it when new weddings gives us the opportunity to catch up with old couples!)

May started with Clare and Frank's stylish London wedding and my new favourite venue, Brunswick House.  Oh my, what a venue, and just the perfect setting for this couple!

Lastly (for now) and by no means least, was Adrienne and Joe's perfect day in France.  Not only was the ceremony in a 12th century monolithic church, but it also meant working with the amazing Lou from Handmade Events again, one of the best planners EVER!  

So that's a summary, and I hope to blog every single one of these wonderful weddings in the coming weeks and months.  In the meantime though, here's a taster of how incredibly lucky we are.
