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!
Jody’s glasses were vintage – and I think they suited her really well. Don’t you just love her yellow bag too? And the shoes? Need I say more? Stunning!She even had a pair for dancing in too! Love the photo of Martin and Jody’s dad through the window.
This is Jody’s nephew – what a cutie! Off to the venue – it was turning out to be a lovely day! Jody and Martin chose to have an outdoor humanist ceremony. So pleased the weather was on our side! They’d thought of everything from flags for the guests, to order of services, to beautiful little floral displays. Martin and his best man, Andy were very relaxed. Jody arrived with her dad in a Cadillac! Love Martin’s proud face as he watches Jody arriving. It was one of the most relaxed ceremonies I’ve ever seen. GREAT readings! In the background you can just make out Gail the wedding coordinator at the Larmer Tree, she’s still one of the best I’ve ever worked with. She makes everything run so smoothly. First owl as a ring bearer I’ve ever seen too! I was so pleased to “get the shot!” Martin and Jody had made their own “marriage certificate”. Wonderful flag waving by their guests! A Mariachi band played on the music stage – which was really fun and unusual yet again – are you sensing a theme to this day?!
Martin and Jody went for a little chauffeur driven drive in the Cadillac. Of course I had to go too, to photograph it – love my job! Jody’s sister surprised Jody with a pirate themed cake, buried treasure and an octopus no less – she loved it! Check out that sunshine – it was such a lovely day! Croquet on the lawn anyone?! Time to eat! The speeches were hilarious! Then back outside for more fun! Pinatas! Dancing! Thank you once again to Martin and Jody for an amazing day and congratulations!
