A Beautiful Country Wedding

I had a fab day on Saturday at a gorgeous wedding 20 minutes from Bury-st-Edmunds. Jess and Tom were the happy couple, and they were exactly that.

The wedding was set in Jess’ parents grounds where the little church is about 200 metres from the house and marquee! The weather was gorgeous and so was the bride with a nice tan and the most beautiful dress.

It was really refreshing to go to such a laid back, enjoyable wedding. Lots of little nibbles were being brought round as we all relaxed on the grass whilst the photos were being taken. Everything had been organised so well that the day ran extremley smoothly and although not entirely traditional, much the better for it.

One example of this was the cake, I think it must have been everyone’s idea of heaven, so when it appeared at dessert, we were all very impressed.

After the wedding ceremony (and far too many champagnes in the grounds of the church) we all took our places at the tables in the marquee and waited for the speeches. They were very tasteful and Jess’ Dad’s brought a tear to my eye. (In fact I was welling up at various intervals throughout the day!)

Food was gorgeous and (on our table at least) everyone just had a generally great time.

The first dance was fab and Jess and Tom had obviuosly prepared; we took too many photos of it but it was just very cool!

There was a full evening of dancing to the live band and after this the night ended with fireworks.

The heart shaped firework with J and T in the middle was the cutest. Unfortunately it was too far away and my camera wasn’t feeling up to taking a good shot of it!

In total, I took 240 photos!! I’ve never taken so many photos in one day. I have deleted about two thirds of them though (all the rubbish ones), so I am sticking to my new rules about taking photos! They are here if you fancy a gander.
