Autumn Wedding at Elsham Hall

Autumn Wedding at Elsham Hall

Autumn Wedding at Elsham Hall

One word- EPIC. What a day to remember. I've been SO excited about photographing Jo and Ross' wedding at Elsham Hall since day 1. They booked me before they even officially got engaged so I had to keep it on the down-low for a while haha! It's always so nice to be a part of a couples wedding who you already know and get on so well with, so I knew this was going to be awesome.

It's so clear to see that Jo and Ross are the exact same- just a male and a female version of one another! haha Watching them get married and their day unfold was honestly so magical, they are so carefree and nothing phases them. They just want to live their best lives, laugh and create memories that they can cherish forever. They are so refreshing to be around to their love inspires me.

Ok mushy talk over. Let's talk about how INSANE their Autumn themed wedding at the incredibly stunning Elsham Hall was. Elsham Hall is such a gorgeous Country Park and grounds up in Lincolnshire and in the Autumn it it absolutely breathtaking. Even in the pouring rain! Honestly, nothing can take away from how beautiful this place is.

So where to start?! Ok firstly- Jo's dress, designed and created by the ridiculously talented Joanna Leigh Couture. I mean- there are no words to describe just how perfect this dress is for Jo and the detail and craftsmanship is something else. When I'm almost in tears as Jo put it on- you know it's a winner! She looked INCREDIBLE! Jo you are honestly so gorgeous and some might even say Ross is punching haha!

The morning was so upbeat and such a great atmosphere with the bridesmaids and Jo's family. There was plenty of laughing, singing, dancing and the cutest little page boys stealing the show.

Jo and Ross married the beautiful St. Hybalds church round the corner to where Jo grew up.The ceremony was so lovely and Ross and Jo got to enjoy two kisses since the first one was a bit premature haha!

The rain persisted most of the day but it didn't dampen anyone's spirits. I just love Ross and Jo's positive attitudes. There was laughter and good times from the get go and all of their friends and family were such good sports and even came out for group photos and an epic confetti tunnel.

The flowers by Julip Floristy were so gorgeous and really set off the Autumn theme with the black bridesmaids dresses and the Autumn tones of Elsham Hall. I absolutely love the wild look to the bouquets.

Bride Beautiful at Elsham Hall did such a fantastic job of decorating the barn for their wedding breakfast. It looked incredible and really had a gorgeous warm Autumn feel to it with all the little leaf details and fairy lights.

The day went so fast and before we knew it the party was starting. Jo's amazingly talented Maid of Honour - Kelly sang their first dance which was such a lovely personal touch. From this moment on- Jo and Ross did not leave the dance floor haha. They partied hard all night with all their loved ones and it really was so special to witness and be a part of.

Thank you Ross and Jo for putting your trust in me to capture your day and for looking after me so well. I truly appreciate it. Massive congratulations to you both and here's to many more years of laughter, singing, dancing and epic memories. You two are awesome <3

Here is a little snippet from your day. So many more to come. I hope you love them!

I absolutely loved working at this Elsham Hall wedding for the first time this year! The team at Bride Beautiful are simply amazing and so welcoming. They offer a very personalised and unique service which is so refreshing and means you can have the exact day you want. The rustic barn is a grade II listed building and has gorgeous exposed brick walls. The gardens at Elsham Hall are breath taking. Even with all the rain at this Autumn wedding at Elsham Hall, it did not take away from the beauty of the place one bit. They also offer outdoor ceremonies, maybe for when the weather is a bit better! haha
