Wow what a day!
We arrived early and with the rain starting to clear, we made our way into bridal preparations where both Jo and Caroline (in separate rooms) were getting ready. We made a start on photographing those all-important details; the dress, shoes and jewellery. We were there to capture any special moments, like when the couple received individual messages from all their friends and family that their close friends had put together, with some bringing a tear to the eye.
As the ceremony room was getting its finishing touches, we headed down to get some shots before heading back up to capture Jo’s dad seeing his daughter in her beautiful gown for the first time that day, tissues at the ready!
As the guests started to arrive, you could feel the love in the room. All their friends and family gathered to watch Jo and Caroline say ‘I DO’ after 17 years together. And I can definitely say I think they both found ‘The One’! The ceremony was relaxed with lots of fun and laughter which truly reflected both Jo and Caroline’s personalities.
Following the ceremony, we headed out to the beautiful grounds of Missenden Abbey for some photographs with family and friends before we whisked the couple away for some alone time (well when I say alone, they may have been joined by their beautiful son Maicen!)
The evening followed with dinner and some hilarious speeches, then onto the cutting of the cake, bouquet toss and first dance.
As night fell, the party animals came out and the dance floor was alight with the couple even opting for a silent disco which was a hit with all their guests.
Jo and Caroline, you were truly made for each other and we wish you every happiness in your future together.
