Sophie & James were married in September at the stunning moated manor house venue Birtsmorton Court in Worcestershire. You may recognise Sophie – she is the weddings manager at Birtsmorton Court and so it was a real honour to photograph her own wedding! Sophie sees many, many lovely weddings at Birtsmorton Court, so she had lots of amazing ideas for how her own day would go. I absolutely love her styling, her flowers and her colour scheme. There’s plenty of inspiration for your own wedding in the photos that follow! The most important thing for her and James though was that they just wanted to be able to relax and have fun with their family & friends. They certainly did that – it was the most fabulous day! With the sun shining warmly on the terrace reception by the moat, and the continental sounds of an accordionist drifting through the merry laughter, chatter and bubbles, it was like being in another world – what wonderful memories. Sophie’s gorgeous dress is ‘Latin’ by Nicola Anne Bridal, from The Bridal Room Broadway. Hair and makeup is by Anna White. The spectacular flowers are by Sally Gill, filled with red and peach blooms, and the cake is by Sophie’s clever mum. The wild dancing in the evening was fueled by music from the always-excellent Chip Shop Boys. These guys really know how to party! It was the best day and I LOVED every minute of it – massive congratulations to Sophie & James, and huge thanks for having me there to capture it all x

Here’s what they said when they saw their photos:

“Hey Gemma,

We’re just coming to the end of our most amazing honeymoon and the best three weeks of our lives. Our wedding was the most perfect day for us and we can’t thank you enough for your presence on the day. It felt like we had a friend around taking photos and you made us feel really comfortable in front of the camera. We love all of these amazing pictures… We’ve been amazed at how you’ve managed to capture everyone who came to the day in such a lovely way and we are absolutely delighted with all of the shots of the two of us as well. We’d always said that if we got one nice one to frame, that’s all we need. Now, choosing which ones we put in a frame will be the difficult bit! So thank you, thank you, thank you, these pictures have just topped off our absolutely perfect wedding day, we’ll look back at them with the fondest memories. 

With our very best wishes xx”
