How have I not blogged this wedding already? Meet Tony & Charlie! The most awesome couple who have a gorgeous fur baby and are both total gym lovers. We met for cake and coffee to discuss their wedding requirements in the cutest vintage coffee shop in Horsham: prettythingsgeneralstore.com. They both let me know how much they dislike being in front of the camera, so of course, in true J’Door fashion, I invited them to a pre shoot to get them used to it before their big day!
Their wedding day was on the 27th December 2018. What a festive and loving day for a wedding. I had been given a Fuji X100F for Christmas by my very generous boyfriend so I took that along with me to play. Honestly, it is the best camera I have ever used. Lots of people thought I was rocking a vintage 35mm film camera! Super sassy.
Sorry, back to the wedding day! I parked up at Crowne Plaza Felbridge and located Charlie with her girls getting ready in one of the rooms. They were SO chilled out and it was a beautiful atmosphere to get ready in. Well done girlies. Charlie showed me her wedding shoes and I was rather blooming jealous to see a pair of sparkly purple Doctor Martens in front of my eyes! YES CHARLIE!!! She even had a pair of cute white socks with frills to go with them. Scroll down to see them!
I popped across the hall to see how the chaps were getting on! I was greeted by a rather nervous Tony. I know Tony through work and he is normally very chatty & confident so it was rather sweet seeing him that way! Tony will want me to say he was holding it together really well so I will add that in too 🙂 I left them all to it whilst I nipped back in with the girls for the finishing touches. Can we all just take a moment to appreciate those absolutely stunning flowers. Breathtaking and such a talented florist.
Also… WHAT A DRESS!!! Teamed with the Dr Martens, Charlie looked a million dollars. Such a naturally beautiful Bride with a huge heart. Take a peek at the gorgeous bride below.
The time came for the ceremony, the nerves were at a high as was the excitement. It was such a delight watching Tony’s reaction as Charlie came down the aisle linked to the arm of her Father. A gorgeous ceremony was celebrated with reception drinks and canapes. I managed to convince the guests to come outside with me into the freezing temperatures for a few group shots. I don’t think I have ever worked quite so quickly in order to maintain the guest’s warmth! As I knew the light would be lost very quickly, I borrowed Charlie and Tony for a few couples shots with the intention of doing more in the evening using backlighting (they did not disappoint). Guests were called through for the wedding breakfast followed by the fantastic speeches. I got lost in the giggles and emotions of the speeches, they were spot on.
Onto the dancing, another crowd that didn’t disappoint with their dance skills. The first people on the dance floor were Charlie’s grandparents. In fact, I don’t think they ever left the dance floor and were certainly better dancers than me!
