Rachel & John invited a whopping 220 guests to share in their wedding day. Friends and family from all over came to celebrate this pair’s love and it was apparent this had been a long time coming by the whooping and cheering from the crowd as Rachel and John kissed as husband and wife for the first time.

With a beautiful and emotional ceremony at a Baptist church in Bridgnorth complete with professional gospel singer Geraldine Luce and followed by laid back drinks and cake in the local Castle Grounds; a public space that is meticulously maintained with stunning gardens, then onto the local rugby club for their marquee reception.

I am a little bit obsessed by Rachel’s stunning dress – it’s from To Have & To Hold in Kidderminster. Other suppliers included Sophies in Melton Mowbray for the bouquets, their friend Christine Bartlett for the church flowers and friend Jenny Riches for the flowers in the marquee – how amazing to have such talented people as friends!

Here’s a little handful of their gorgeous wedding…

PS. I had the wonderful Alice Webb on board with me as a second shooter – she’s a newbie but watch out for her, she’s blooming marvellous!
