Katie and Gary, on my pre-wedding questionnaire I asked you to describe your wedding at Dodmoor House in 3 words, you chose Fun, Happy and Magical and I don’t think you could have chosen any better than that.
I remember arriving at your house Katie on the wedding morning and being greeted with so much excitement, your dad was busy writing his speech, and you were already in the hands of Jayne who was carefully twisting your hair back into a beautiful creation.
Your whole day was just so full of happiness, and with the simply beautiful setting of Doodmoor House, your outdoor ceremony performed by the wonderful Tiaa was beautiful to witness. I loved it when you started jumping up and down when you were pronounced husband and wife, the joy in your face was so clear. And in a first for me, you had a ring warming ceremony, what a fantastic idea! For the uninitiated, this is where the wedding rings are passed around all of the guests prior to the vows so that each person may bless them and wish good thoughts for the couple.
I think the one thing that will remind me most about your wedding is the sweet smell of lemons from the candles you had dotted around the venue, such an incredible smell and fully complimented by the lemon trees and all of the lemon themed decor of the day.
Thank you both for trusting me to capture these special moments for you.
