RAJK8843_RajandJade LANDSCAPE.jpg

Carley & Chris kept their wedding local to Northamptonshire as a lot of their family live there and have grown up there. They’re so lucky to have lots of family close to home. They had a beautiful English wedding in Weston Favell Village Church and the reception at a village Hall which had large lawns, a small wooden park and you could even watch people playing cricket as well!

The Groom and Groomsmen got ready at the home of the best mans parents. Sam now lives in Canada with his partner so they had the furthest to travel for the wedding to say the least!

Of course things got silly in the garden with the groomsmen. Raj had a great laugh photographing them as you can see! They may have dropped the groom! On the morning of the wedding don’t forget… luckily he was ok… phew!

The Ceremony

Weston Favell church was in the middle of a village green with little village lanes all around it. They had lovely gardens with benches all around for people to sit in this peaceful space. When Raj and I went to meet Carley and Chris at the Church the day before the wedding to have a look around the people of the village where so lovely and had a chat to us and congratulated the couple. A beautiful friendly place.

They had this rose in a glass dome bell jar just like the one from Beauty & the Beast which Carley loves.

Carley had made the displays herself and crafted some creative pieces together. It was such a beautiful display to greet the guests.

On arrival it all looked very excited as there was a cricket match going on so everyone could sit on the tables and benches outside to watch the game, a wood fired pizza van and an ice cream stall as well!

Cake & the First Dance

The cake had some layers of classic fruit cake and other layers of lemon sponge.

For their first dance there were some really sweet and funny moments when Chris was considerately pushing the trail of Carleys dress with his foot so it moved around with her so he didn’t stand on it and so they didn’t get in a tangle! Such a gent!

It turns out that there were some seriously good movers on the dance floor!

Of course there was The Macarena and Saturday Night.

There was even… a dance off!

But at the last minute this young lad jumped in and blew them out the water with some crazy moves and the splits and won the dance off!
