Real Wedding: Jon & Karen at The Wiltshire
Elizabeth Donovan has sent in the this lovely real wedding. We love how Elizabeths photos tell the wedding day story so beautifully. Here's what Elizabeth had to say about the day...
"Karen and Jon's wonderful wedding day stated at their home in Broad Hinton. It was a busy, but very organised morning with their four daughters and Karen all getting their hair and make up done together in their kitchen/diner. I loved Karen's make up and she looked beautiful with a gentle chignon in her hair. Her dress was just perfect too, the cut of the dress along with the detail around the bodice really suited her and her girls were quick to compliment once she was ready for the church.
Their friends provided two classic vintage cars to take them to the church, freshly cleaned and polished for the occasion. One of their drivers had even bought a chauffeur hat, he was taking his role very seriously!
A quick hop to St Peters Ad Vincula Church in Broad Hinton and Karen's dad looked very proud as he walked his girl down the aisle. Friends from the village performed a number of beautiful songs during the ceremony and the couple, along with their children, lit candles for loved ones who couldn't be there. I think it's also safe to say the vicar was very happy to be taking their service. She gave them such a lovely personal ceremony - she even mentioned how she danced about her home when she received their call to book their wedding.
Their wedding reception took place at The Wiltshire Hotel in Royal Wootton Bassett. We were lucky with the weather and Mandy the wedding coordinator at the hotel arranged for us to go out in golf buggies to the lake on the course for some photos. I've not been in one before and decided Ben their videographer should drive our buggy - what an experience and a great opportunity to capture some more stunning photographs of Jon and Karen.
The venue looked wonderful and I loved that Jon credited Karen in his speech, for all her hard work leading up to the day. Everything looked so pretty and there were lots of cute details everywhere. I also enjoyed seeing Jon and Karen's school photos on their table plan and the poem that Karen's school wrote to the couple was also on display.
They had an amazing day. Karen nearly had me in tears during her speech, there was so much laughter and fun throughout the day and their guests were all so lovely and welcoming."
The newlyweds were clearly thrilled with what Elizabeth had sent them and sent this glowing thank you...
"Thank you so much for the absolutely beautiful photos. We are absolutely thrilled with them. Thank you for all your hard work and being so lovely. We will never forget our day and the fun we had with you and our videographer, you made it even more special!"
