Emma & Jay were originally going to be married in December but with all of the uncertainty surrounding weddings caused by the on again off again lockdowns, they decided to chance it and see if they could bring the date forward into October and be able to have an intimate Church Ceremony in Claverly before heading to Davenport House for a small reception. They decided to keep their beautiful blue Christmas theme, and I’m SO glad they did, so much time and thought and love went into making this wedding as stunning as it was, and it was so lovely to get into the festive spirit a little earlier than usual.
I arrived first at their home to photograph Emma getting ready and to finally get to meet her in person. Usually I get to meet couples a few months before the actual wedding, but with lockdown it wasn’t feasible, so being able to arrive before the ceremony and be able to get to know her and her amazing son Seb a little bit meant we got to break the ice before I started following everybody around with my camera for the next 6 hours!
Emma & Jay’s wedding was stunning and really did go to show that having fewer guests does not mean that you can’t go all out with every other aspect of the day. From the blue streaks in Emma’s hair to the giant Christmas tree set up at Davenport House, this was a Christmas winter wonderland wedding of dreams.
