I first met Rachel and Jonny through their wedding planner, Ali Welsh, who I’ve worked with for a few years on all sorts of spectacular events, so I knew that their wedding was going to be something very special. And right enough, it was one of the most beautiful weddings of my summer, combining a traditional church ceremony with a spectacular garden party complete with two stunning marquees connected by a passageway lined with trees, and incredible entertainment by Flood The Floor. I ended up spending about thirteen hours with them to capture the whole story, and honestly could have been there even longer, it was such a fantastic day!
Here’s the first part of their story – preparations in the morning, and the ceremony itself. Stay tuned for Part Two, the reception and dancing – including some gorgeous portraits and so many beautiful little details from the amazing marquees!
