Wendy & Phil had a gorgeous Winter wedding at The Green House Hotel in Dorset at the end of 2020.
They had a micro wedding with only 15 guests and it was stunning!
My morning started with Wendy getting ready in her bridal suite with her bridesmaid, Mum and Brother. It was so lovely to have her bestfriend & Brother there to help along with everything.
I started shooting the details, including the dress, flowers & converse (bridal shoes – genius!). There were some hugs and happy tears when Wendy’s Brother gifted her with a beautiful bracelet & lots of laughter as she was getting in her dress. It was the perfect, chilled morning.
I went down to meet Phil in the ceremony room. Phil had decorated the room to add some extra magic and atmosphere. He had even sourced dry ice for the walking down the aisle as a surprise for Wendy!
The guests started to take their seats and not before long the ceremony began. Wendy walked down with her Brother and brought a tear to her Mum’s eye. The ceremony was so intimate and pretty, with that extra decor making it next level (well done Phil!).
After the ceremony we headed outside to make the most of the Winter sunshine. The sun had started to set so we did some couple photographs and then the group photographs. With the sun just about to set I ventured inside to get photos of the room, it looked gorgeous! Candles, greenery and floating tea lights – it was perfect! Wendy hadn’t seen Phil’s work in the room so seeing them both walk in and see it was amazing. They then had a slow dance in private (with a nosey photographer hiding away getting a couple of snaps), and then they sat down for their food.
Once everyone was seated they had some speeches. One from Wendy’s Brother, from the Maid of Honour, from Phil’s Dad & his Bestman.
With the sun now set, the food coming out & a room full of their closest family & friends it was my time to depart and leave them to enjoy the rest of their evening.
What a fantastic day it was!
Thank you so much for Wendy & Phil for having me capture their big day! Congratulations to you both!
“Wow! What can I say? Jessica was absolutely amazing, we felt so at ease with her and we could tell she was really enjoying the day herself. It wasn’t just a job for her, we could see the passion she has for her craft.
The photos are incredible, and everyone loves them. We wish we could do the whole day again, and we would choose Jessica to be our photographer again in a heartbeat.”
