Today was the day to celebrate the wedding of Emma & Jon, the new Mr & Mrs Pike. They had decided to hold their full day at Upwaltham Barns in West Sussex. This venue is one of my favourite venues to work at as it offers everything you need for the perfect day. I must say the weather wasn’t looking good but everyone was in great spirits and my creative juices were flowing! I started the morning with Emma and her bride tribe at their family home in Drayton, where she was having her Hair & Make Up done by two close friends, Della from DeBeaut Beauty Salon & Georgia from The Hair Tailors, both based in Portsmouth.
The morning was very relaxed and everyone was in great spirit and the plan was to apply the make up at home and then head off to the beautiful cottage at the venue for the final detail. Here are a few images I captured of the girls in the morning and all the little details that Emma had been planning over the months prior…
After arriving at the venue, there was a cold chill in the air and the sun was trying its best to break through the clouds. The venue was absolutely stunning and the attention to details that both Emma & Jon had applied was just perfect for their special day. There truly was love in the air and it was time to capture some more images of the girls in the cottage as they made their final preparations before Jon and the guests arrived. Here are some images I captured of the ongoing preparation to becoming the new Mrs Pike…
With time running out there was a just enough to capture some images of Jon and his brother/bestman James as they arrived. With the guests arriving and smiles all round, our groom was beaming and here are a few images I captured of him looking rather dapper…
Before showing off the images from our portrait shoot with the newly weds. I just want to say a huge thank you to both Emma & Jon for letting me be such a huge part of their special day and capturing some beautiful moments. You have the most beautiful family with little Betsy and It really is so so clear the love you share for each other and as a family unit. Here’s to many years of happiness to come and all the fun adventures you have planned for the future.
But before you all go… here are loads more images from their special day for you all to enjoy. Also if you are currently planning your special day, please feel free to drop me a message and lets chat weddings. I would love to be a part of your special day and to capture some special moments for you too.
