Yesterday I think English Springer Spaniel Tess – Emma’s ‘chief bridesmaid’ – stole the show. Today I’ll bring you back down to earth with a wedding blog about Emma and Will’s exquisite marquee reception… I say down to earth, but shall we start with the helicopter?

Or… where yesterday’s wedding blog post ‘left off’?… as Emma and Will walked away from the church, happily married and smiling – to a nearby field where their helicopter was waiting.

Emma and Will: part two – the wedding reception

Will and I walked down the country lane and opposite was the fabulous navy blue helicopter, complete with champagne on ice.

It was really fantastic to see our guests all lined up and waving us off. The flight was fantastic and we had a wonderful view of our beautiful wedding venue as we landed, again with all our guests waiting to welcome us in.

… and why not! Ah – I love this wedding for loads of reasons. Emma and Will are both so gorgeous and look the perfect couple. The wedding photography is fabulous. The details are perfect – Emma and Will organised their wedding themselves and did an amzing job of it too.

But this is a wedding with a difference: the adorable springer spaniel Tess – Emma’s ‘chief bridesmaid’ and clearly a character loved by everyone there. I can’t help grinning every time I scan through the photos as Tess goes from happy excitement to flopping lazily onto her side in the middle of the aisle for the beautiful church service.

Emma has written a lovely wedding report and I’ll leave you to enjoy that along with the photos by Tino and Pip – which I love.

Today’s wedding on the blog is very much a story, told through beautiful pictures and with a wonderful focus on the wedding guests, and on fleeting moments in time.

Emma and Justin were married on the edge of a Scottish Loch – Loch Awe, near Oban. Their wedding day incorporated little touches of true individuality: a bit of Bob Marley in church; African fabric for the guys’ waistcoats alongside kilts and a Cèilidh for the evening reception.

I have a wedding report here from Emma, which I love – and with great wedding photography by Clare West, there’s really not much I can add except, enjoy the blog feature and do leave a comment for the bride and groom if you can!

Justin got his morning suit from a second hand tailor in Fulham called Old Hat. We also had made by a good friend of mine waistcoats from African print. Justin and his 2 bestmen had a certain print and then the ushers had the same but in a different colour.

Yesterday I shared Andrea and Richard’s classy wedding in Cheshire. They were married in July and despite the rain it was a beautiful celebration: not least for Andrea’s stunning halterneck wedding dress and the inclusion of their adorable little son and the cutest EVER bridesmaid and flower girl.

By the kids’ area. Enjoy the grown up photos of the party below – as ever, beautifully captured by Cheshire wedding photographers cg weddings.
