Jenny & Chris at Northbrook Park

If ever there was a wedding to end 2018 on – this was it. A coming together of two incredible families in style, laughter and love. 

Jenny and Chris had met through their work and when I met them at their engagement shoot I knew that their wedding was going to be special. They are both super-lovely and very chilled. And so was their day, which passed beautifully sans drama. Just a proper heartfelt celebration on possibly what was the best October day. Crisp sunshine, all the spectrum of colour of the autumnal leaves, a beautiful venue, Northbrook Park, Farnham. All combined to give the perfect sense of occasion. 

The benefit of the bride and groom staying at the same venue the night before is that you get to photograph both of them getting ready with their respective crews. Although, I’m not sure how Chris managed to pull this off, as he was in the honeymoon suite with his best men and ushers – and the most ridiculous (although highly desirable) gold bath. Meanwhile, Jenny was in one of the cottages with her nan (more about this awesome lady later), mum and two bridesmaids all glamming up. 

Jenny had managed to keep her dress a secret from everyone but her mum. As she walked down the aisle you could see this was a huge moment for her father, radiating pride. The ceremony took place in the Vine Room, an incredible room full of divine proportions and natural light, and Jenny’s dress seemed a fitting choice, without sounding like the Daily Mail too much, celebrating her divine proportions splendidly. 

The wedding breakfast took place in The Orangery, with its red brick walls a more casual setting than the Georgian splendour of the ceremony room which makes for a fantastic range of photographs, full of different textures and colours. Just a little thing to consider when choosing a venue. Jenny and Chris literally danced their way into the room, setting the tone for the evening and the merriment to come. 

Jen’s dad totally smashed his speech, as did Chris who burst into song at one point. Everyone was in stitches (more at the jokes than the singing!) Chris’ best men did a proper hatchet job on him – all taken in good grace.   

Food was a magnificent buffet banquet from Scots of Carshalton, after which the disco kicked off by Neil Sphere Entertainment. Here’s where we skip back to Jen’s nan who was one of the first up to dance – and continued to stay on the dancefloor all night. When I grow up, I want to be just like her 😉 

So congratulations to Jenny and Chris. I couldn’t have hoped for a better, lovelier ending to wedding season 2018.
