This was my first Christmas wedding at Caswell House and I was delighted to photograph Jo and James’s relaxed and fun wedding day.  When I arrived Jo and her bridesmaids were getting ready in the bridal suite, which is a really lovely room with plenty of space for everyone to get ready.

James and the groomsmen were also getting ready, and we took a few photos before I headed back to Jo for her final preparations.  She looked absolutely beautiful in her lace dress!

We were so lucky with the crisp winter weather and it stayed dry throughout the day, allowing the bride and her bridesmaids and parents to walk across the ooutdoor space to the barn for the ceremony.  It was a very emotional and touching ceremony, and such a pleasure to watch.

After the ceremony we had a few photos outdoors in the gorgeous afternoon winter light.  We walked through the grounds before heading to the bridge, which was a bit slippery from the cold weather so we held on tightly!  We then took a few group photos in front of the magnificent Christmas tree before heading into the barn for the wedding breakfast and speeches.

Soon it was time for the cake-cutting and dancing, and the party started!

What a wonderfully perfect day – wishing you a lifetime of happiness x
