Joanne and James are the warmest people you can meet. The first time I met Jo I was willing her to book me to document their wig wam wedding party at their home in Widnes. I was flipping delighted when she did before I left their front door. I was even more giddy when I saw their wedding invite, bursting with colour and designed like festival ticket!
They had been married in Cyrus a few weeks earlier and this wedfest was their party to celebrate their marriage with all of their friends and family. Jo is a huge Harry Potter fan and so their were lots of gorgeous touches to reflect this. None more so than the incredible cade made by her cousin Lauren. They first time they saw it was when the party was well underway and I think it is fair to say it was a huge hit.
When Jo first booked me she said i’d be lucky if I got James out for more than 5 minutes for photos and to get him to smile. Well we went out twice for photos and he was positively beaming! Who wouldn’t be with Jo by their side. These two are so kind, warm and welcoming and the connection between them is absolutely unreal. It was a pure joy to see how blissfully happy and in love they were. They were having the time of their lives and not even the hog roast arriving 2 hours late and the hire van getting stuck in the field could generate anything other than a laugh!
Thank you so much for inviting me into your home and being just brilliant!
