The weather held out for John and Vicky’s big day at the beautiful Hemswell Court, Lincolnshire. It was to be a day of emotion, laughter and love as the two tied the knot beautiful surroundings in front of their family and friends.
The day started with bridal preparations in the bridal suite with Vicky and her two bridesmaids Kelly and Tina. The Bride wore a gorgeous duchess satin and embroidered tulle ivory Bridal gown hand made by the very talented Caroline Chamberlain Bridal Boutique. Vicky's shoes were elegant and unique - a modern twist on wedding footwear from irregular choice. The bride wore a bouquet created in the style of her Nanna’s wedding flowers from the 1940’s – the spotted dog flower company pulled out all the stops.
Meanwhile John and best man Matt were excited and nervous as they got into their navy Moss Bros suits back at home. The groom had been working on his 1966 Volkswagen Beetle for months leading upto the wedding day and took great pride in driving himself and his best man to the venue.
The guests were greeted in the foyer of Hemswell Court by top pianist Emily Martin playing a selection of modern songs . Guests made their way to the ceremony room (via the bar) and waited excitedly for the brides arrival.
Vicky walked down the aisle to big smiles and the couple said their vows in front of friends and family including their 5 month old son Alfie.
After the ceremony the confetti was tossed and the guests were entertained by magician John Morton. Snapz Photography took the formal and group shots whilst the delicious looking canapes were being circulated to guests. After the happy couple had had their romantic photographs taken they had a special audience with John Morton who amazed the bride and groom with his brilliant tricks.
The speeches were full of emotion – there were tears of joy and laughter as everyone enjoyed the rest of the evening which included more of Emily Martins brilliant piano playing, photobooth fun with Snapz, an acoustic guitarist and singer and lots of dancing.
