Bella & Henry’s wedding in Shelley, Suffolk

Now, if Carlsberg did weddings …

You are not likely to meet two kinder, more generous hearted souls than Bells and Henry. They are two perfect pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that fit so well together, their personalities neatly complimenting each other. Bells is passionate and impulsive whilst Henry is more deliberate and phlegmatic. Their wedding was an incredible testament to their personalities in having so many eclectic and wonderful people around them to share their day. I said to Bells that I would stay with them until there was that traditional lull on the dance floor (usually about after the 4th song when folk realise they are not as young as they once were (or drunk enough yet!) and need to head to the bar before going back onto the floor). And I did stay until that lull happened – it just happened when the DJ called time at midnight. The dance floor was packed the whole night! That summed up the day for me – this felt like the wedding a lot of people had wanted and had waited for and they were going to enjoy every last minute of it.

The day was elegant in it’s simplicity. The marriage ceremony was in Shelley Church and then a short walk up the drive of Shelley Hall to the marquee. Luckily the rain had stopped by the afternoon …we even saw a little bit of blue sky towards the end of the day. The marquee had a country feel to it and the theme of the day was racing, horse riding having played a big part in Bells’s growing up and watching people ride horses being a big part of Henry’s weekends. The day was topped off brilliantly with an arcade of sparklers for Bells and Henry to walk through. Here are a few of my favourite images from the day.
