The Harper’s Wedding Blessing!

I had a fabulous time with the Harper family, their guests and friends earlier this year at their wedding blessing. Simon and Jo had always wanted to have a blessing after 10 years of marriage and to make it extra special, their two children, Charlotte and James were this time able to join in the jubilations!!

I have far too many favourite images from their event but have had to restrict myself to the following few. Enjoy!!

I love detail shots so thought I’d start off with a few.

Little James waits anxiously with his father and paternal grandmother for a sneak peak at his mum as she arrives at the church.

I love this image of Simon with his mother as she helps him with his tie. It’s such a lovely moment as Simon glances in the direction his wife is due to arrive.

Another favourite moment of mine.

As Jo, her mother and daughter Charlotte arrived, they were welcomed by an excited and very smartly dressed young James who flew in for a quick cuddle before the ceremony.

As his family walked down the aisle towards him, Simon looked on with a tear in his eye.

The ceremony was beautiful and many tears were shed. I only just managed to keep it together myself!!

Jo wore her wedding dress from their first wedding 10 years previous and looked fabulous.

I love confetti shots. It’s a chance to get something really fun and get lots of people involved and enjoying themselves. I just love all the smiles and this was a great opportunity for Charlotte and James to join in too.

The reception was held at Richings Park Golf Club and the blue bridge over the river gave us a beautiful setting for the large group shots.

Richings Park lends itself to some beautiful arches and architecture to frame my subjects. Once again, I had too many to choose from so just selected a couple of my favorites.

Another of my favourites of Jo and Simon.

Charlotte and James are very close and I really wanted to capture their playful relationship on camera.

It was very clear to me throughout the day that the Harper family are very close. It really was a delight sharing in this happy day with their nearest and dearest and was so beautiful to witness all the love!!

As the sun began to set, it was time for me to leave but I really did have a lovely time.

Jo, Simon, Charlotte and James, it was a cracking day and thank you for choosing me to capture it for you!! Enjoy your images!

All the very best,
