Kimberley and Joss were really lucky on their wedding day that they had one of the nicest days of the year so far weatherwise. They had planned to have both the ceremony and the wedding breakfast outside in the grounds of Maunsel House, so I was really hoping the day would be sunny and warm and fortunately it was perfect!
When I arrived Kimberley had just started to get ready with her Maid of Honour Katherine upstairs in the Bridal Suite. Also popping from time to time were flower girls Mia and Jasmine and Page Boy Sasha. Kimberley had chosen a lovely yellow theme for the day which looked really fresh and summery – the girls dresses in particular were a great choice for a summer wedding.
Kimberley and Joss both used to dance with the Royal Ballet, which I only discovered that morning – seeing some amazing pictures of them on a photo montage in the hallway. I think it definately explained why Kimberley looked so elegant and graceful in her stunning bridal gown all day!
Outside, the cellist and pianist were warming up and Joss and his three best men Cedric, Matthew and Graham were chatting to guests as they arrived and trying to keep Joss’ nerves at bay. During the ceremony Samantha sang a beautiful song and Sasha did a lovely reading and it was great for me being able to move around a bit and have a bit more freedom than you usually do indoors.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed Champagne on the lawn and the kids ran around and played on the big swings under Maunsel’s gorgeous old trees. I took Kimberley and Joss off briefly for a few photographs and then everyone sat down to the speeches and wedding breakfast under the pergola.
Here are a few of my favourite images:
