Laura & Jon’s March Wedding

A cold spring day hosted the wedding of Jon & Laura, a lovely young couple getting married at Hursley Church followed by the reception and party at The Clock Barn, Whitchurch.

Laura was wearing a beautiful vintage lace dress which was originally worn by her Grandmother on her wedding day, and then her mother.  It was a beautiful heirloom that fitted Laura like a glove and she wore with grace and style.  Jon, not to be left out looked splendid in his full army dress (perhaps it was just as well it was a little chilly for the men – I wouldn’t like to be wearing their outfits on a warm day!)

William, did a splendid job of the service and Laura’s mum created a stir with her emotional reading, whilst Jon’s sister sang so beautifully (oh how I wish I could sing like that).

Jon father provided and drove the wonderful wedding car and the guests were transported to The Clock Barn in a red double decker bus.  I love the long, bumpy drive to the Clock Barn, and as usual got Sue to hang out of the car window (her favourite part of the day 😉 to capture some shots as we trailed the car.

The Clock Barn put on a wonderful reception and as always the barn looked beautiful, decorated with bunting and fairy lights.  After a couple of group shots and a 20 minute shoot with the couple we headed back to the barn to capture the details of the table settings and capture the guests enjoying themselves.

The speeches were a joy and Laura’s father presented a rather unusual family heirloom gift to his new son-in-law.   As Laura changed into a rather lovely satin ivory dress for the evening, I took the opportunity to take a few more photos of the couple in the barn using my tungsten video lights, then back to capture the exploits on the dance floor… it turns out both Laura and Jon could throw a few shapes and moves of their own.
