Often a wedding will catch my eye for its simple elegance – there is sometimes a sparkle, a hint of beauty in the images which I can’t put a finger on. Theresa and Anastasios’s big day is one of those. They were married at Statham Lodge earlier this year and focused on a simple, classy celebration for their friends and family to enjoy.
I adore the images of Theresa with her little boy – she’s such a beautiful bride I couldn’t resist sharing all the most loving moments of this wedding day with you. Grab a tissue as well as a cuppa, because there might be a few tears!
Images are by lovely wedding photographer Jo Bradbury. Find out more about Jo and see more of the weddings she’s photographed here:
