Well here we are in January 2016 we’ve all had our fill of turkey, mince pies ( oh go on just one more! ), auld lang syne, boozy nights and lazy days, and family get togethers ( only kidding! ) we find ourselves glancing back at last year before we plunge forward into the new year. As we sat down to write this blog look back of 2015 we felt we must say a very humble but huge thank you to all the amazing brides and grooms, bridesmaids, ushers and families and just plain wonderful people that we had the privilege of meeting, sharing moments and working with last year, you all know who you are and we blow a kiss to you all, thanks everyone!
We thought long and hard ( tea and biscuits were consumed ) about which one word in particular summed up the year? Then we both remembered the fantastic vicar from one wedding who introduced the giggling couple with an exuberant “Wow”, yes that has to be the first word that springs to mind.
Forty weddings and our busiest year yet! Lots of amazing memories and firsts, including,
Pom Pom confetti fight ( thanks to Rene and Adam, don’t worry no one was hurt In the making of this wedding )
Dad is the vicar!
Top Hats and canes ( yes they are making a come back! )
Our first Bride and Bride ( a completely beautiful day )
Lord of the Pies! Truly delicious.
Eve’s first Mehndi.
West Midlands Safari Park. ( Spring Grove House )
Camper van craziness.
Fireworks & drunken sparklers.
Doctor Who’s Tardis ( without Matt Smith! )
Night at the museum ( including last night of the proms singalong ) Yes this was a wedding!
Hold on just pausing for breath … Phew that’s better…
Windswept teepee hilarity.
Wedding party hay bale shenanigans.
Amazing first dances ( special mention for Millie and Ben! )
Jase in scary high cherrypicker “this will be great for a whole group shot” nightmare!
English afternoon tea.
Beautiful brides and breathtaking dresses
Handsome grooms and cool suits
And love, lots and lots of love…
By the end of the year we had witnessed RAF men get their girl, had seen a magician wed his sweetheart, a Evertonian copper marry his penguin, a leisure centre manager marry his pharmacist, had been a part of not one but two very wonderful Anglo-Dutch weddings, and been a part of the best New Years Eve ever! We have loved every minute of these tearjerking, laughter making, backbreaking, awe inspiring beautiful occasions and can only hope this year is even more so.
Well done you lot you were amazing! Hope you enjoy the gallery and Happy New Year!
Eve and Jason xx
