Jody and Martin’s Larmer Tree Wedding

Jody and Martin are a lovely couple, who decided to get married this summer and their wedding was just amazing. I was so pleased they asked me to photograph their day as they’d thought of absolutely everything and there were so many details!

They chose one of my favourite venues, the Larmer Tree Gardens in Wiltshire.

Both Jody and Martin got ready at the King John pub just down the road. The first thing they did differently was they weren’t worried about the superstition of seeing each other before the wedding, so whilst I was taking getting ready shots with the girls, Martin kept popping in to check on them, which was really sweet!

Here’s their rings. The fox ring, I believe, was temporary as Jody’s ring wasn’t quite ready for the day.

Check out Jody’s amazing dress. Especially those yellow ruffles underneath!
