You mean the world to me… Harlaxton Manor wedding part one

wedding photo by Beautiful Life Photography (21)When something new drops into my lap like this, it makes my world a more exciting place. Today’s wedding is one which has me (virtually) gazing skyward, admiring the gorgeous English church in glorious detail, and smiling very, very happily in the direction of Alex and James.

This is a two-parter: today I’m sharing the pre-wedding photographs (spot the cat-mat and admire those fabulous stained-glass windows!). Tomorrow we’ll head to Harlaxton Manor for a game of croquet with the bride and groom, shall we? Photography is by Beautiful Life Photography (click for the official website).

There’s only one photo missing from the first part of this wedding blog: the one described by Beautiful Life wedding photographer Joy Foulds on her blog: “Alex was also getting ready in the village so I was able to photograph her getting into the wedding car (I did have to do a slight jog over the field to make sure I was at the church when she arrived, but nobody saw me so that was ok!!)” now I’d like to have seen that!

The wedding started at St Andrew’s church in the Lincolnshire countryside. It was so special to have all of our friends and family packed into such a little church! We chose some great hymns and were so lucky to have my dad compose an anthem which was sung during the signing of the register. He also wrote the music which we went out to!”

They were lovely and tied in so well to the bouquets which Emma at The Grantham Florist had arranged. Before leaving the church in our 1930s SS Jaguar , our guests showered us with confetti from dried petals. There was so much of it and made for some great photos!

Classic black tails for the groom and ushers! James chose to wear a double breasted waistcoat to be a bit different. Very few places would hire double breasted waistcoats so we bought one instead and it is an excellent memento from the day!
