Wedding photos are one of the few things to help trigger memories on your special day — so you want them to capture the moment.

Olivia, 28 and Edward, 29 married at their rustic autumnal wedding on November 3, 2019 and couldn’t be happier with their images. “As it was a winter wedding, the weather can be so unpredictable,” recalls the bride. “Jon made such an effort to put us at ease and show us all the things he could do with different weather.”

She says the photos are “so beautiful” and capture the moments of the day wonderfully. “The photo when I met Ed at the end of the alter and he captures Ed talking to me is beautiful. But it is impossible to pick a favourite.”

The couple always loved the idea of a winter wedding, embracing autumnal features such as wood blocks and moss. Their ceremony at All Saints Church, Claverley was followed by a reception at The Mill Barns. “Having a long engagement meant we could enjoy the planning process so much and it never really got stressful,” smiles Olivia.

The couple did long distance for many years before getting engaged.

“Whilst we signed the register my sister Natasha played Einaudi — this was such a beautiful moment in the ceremony with this music filling the church,” says Olivia.

“We were incredibly fortunate to have beautiful autumnal colours, delicious food and lovely friends and family to celebrate with,” beams the bride.
