I always think your first Wedding Anniversary is a special date – not that all anniversaries aren’t special – but a year after your wedding day, all those amazing memories come flooding back.
So a year on from Lauren & James amazing Somerset wedding at Rookery Manor seems like the perfect time to share their amazing wedding on our blog – Happy Anniversary Lauren & James!
“Jo and Nic were absolutely amazing! They came highly recommend to me and they definitely lived up to the expectations. They were brilliant on the day with amazing results, they also have great ideas on how to make your photos fun and different but still having some traditional wedding shots too. My wedding pictures are fantastic and better than I could ever imagined! I am a wedding planner, so meet a lot of photographers and I will always recommend Jo Hansford Photography. Jo & Nic are also lovely people that make being photographed easy, and the price is great too.”
Lauren is a wedding planner herself, and booked us on the recommendation of her manager, Natasha. The first time we chatted through ideas for their day, we could see this was going to be a laid back, fun wedding, and a bit different, steering clear of the trend for vintage styling. In Lauren’s words: “We wanted to stay away from the vintage style that seemed to be everywhere at the time. So we went for classy and clean, all white and teal. We just wanted everyone to have a lovely time and mainly, a great party! ”
When we arrived on the wedding morning, the girls were buzzing with excitement, popping fizz and finishing hair and makeup and the boys were all swooning over the gorgeous silver Maclaren James had arrived in, in the car park! The morning flew by and after a wonderful, emotional ceremony in the Rose room, everyone headed outside onto the terrace for confetti, canapes, drinks and photographs, and the celebrations kicked off for real.
We loved everything about this day from the details to the fun and relaxed vibe the couple created, but if there was one part which was memorable, it would be our trip to the beach to take some photos of the newly weds. We’d planned this carefully with beforehand, to make the timings work, but on the day, when we arrived, the tide was literally metres away from covering the sandy beach, not only that but the wind was getting really strong. Undeterred, we hit the beach, Lauren kicking her heals off and going barefoot, Nic and I grabbing cameras and lights to get the shots we wanted before we all got a soaking. It was exhilerating and fun, as well as creating some lovely memories and photographs to treasure.
