When planning a wedding (and, yes, sometimes when photographing one too) it can be easy to get swept away by the details. The dress, the flowers, the favours and the dozens of little Pinterest-worthy touches. But it’s always incredibly special to see a bride and groom so in love that everything else just falls away. Jasmin and Andy’s emotional Nonsuch Mansion wedding was full to the brim with love.
Don’t get me wrong, they had all the lovely touches too – just wait ’til you see the place settings and their musical take on a guest book! But what I will remember from the day is the way this couple looked at each other, and how obviously head over heels for each other they are.
The weather gods weren’t smiling on this wedding, but Nonsuch Mansion is such a gorgeous venue that it was a case of no sunshine, no problem. I loved the elegant details of the ceremony and reception rooms and had a serious swoon over the gold flocked wallpaper – so ornate and beautiful! The ceremony was full of smiles, and not a few tears – perhaps not from whom you’d expect! When the registrar pronounced them husband and wife, Andy needed a hankie for a bit of weeping and a not-very-surreptitious nose blow before he was able to kiss his new wife. It was really quite sweet, and made everyone laugh – especially Jasmin.
Then, after a burst of indoor confetti (damn you, rain clouds!) it was on to the reception, and some of the most original place settings I’ve seen. Along with the menus, each guest had an individual quote or bit of dialogue from one of the couple’s favourite films – from Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory to Harold and Maude. So simple, but personal, quirky and the perfect fit for this wedding.
We finally got a break in the clouds to steal Jasmin and Andy away for some couple shots in the stunning grounds of Nonsuch Mansion. The love in these images just leaps out at you and socks you in the face (in a nice way!). Jasmin and Andy couldn’t keep their eyes off each other.
When the party got going, later in the evening, the guests really let loose. There were some pretty serious shapes going on on the dancefloor, and I loved that Jasmin hit the DJ booth for a song or two. Their awwwwesomecurls DJ Mitch had the party rocking all night!
