Ah I just loved this wedding! Jo & Keith put SO much time, effort and themselves in to their day and it really made it an extra special occasion. The whole barn, pigsties and surrounding area was jam-packed with personalised signs, photos and other decorations and it really really was stunning.
The day started in the main hotel of the venue, where Jo was busy getting ready for the big day ahead. Her bridesmaids were in beautiful midnight blue and the flowers were vivid pinks, purples and yellows adding an awesome pop of colour. By the time Jo was in her dress and ready to head across the courtyard for the ceremony there was plenty of excitement and anticipation in the air for sure!
Jo looked beautiful walking down the aisle to marry Keith and it’s safe to say there was plenty of emotion on show throughout the whole ceremony, from the readings to the vows and exchanging of rings there was plenty of need for tissues, as well as plenty of laughter from the happy couple who look delighted that their big day was finally upon them. Walking down the aisle as husband and wife, Jo & Keith got the opportunity to greet their guests during the drinks reception, before heading outside for a confetti shot – there was SO MUCH confetti!
With the weather holding, it was time for group shots and some couple portraits also, which was really fun because Jo & Keith definitely didn’t take themselves too seriously, and were up for a laugh. The happy couple were able to catch up with all their guests again during the receiving line into the wedding breakfast. Following the food, it was time for speeches which are always a privilege to listen to during any wedding celebration.
If you want to know how to get a party started – ask Mr & Mrs Duddle! Their first dance was absolutely EPIC which really got the dancefloor jumping – just check out the photos to see what I mean! It was fantastic!
Jo & Keith, you guys were awesome, and I am really really glad that I got to capture your wedding day. You are perfect for one another, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
