Laura and Jim’s chemistry is undeniable. They can’t help but smile and share a kiss when they see each other. I knew this from the time I met them as well as when I photographed their romantic garden field engagement session. Because of this, I knew that their Doctor’s House spring wedding was going to be really special, despite the fact that it rained all day! Laura got ready in the bridal suite of The Doctor’s House with her bridesmaids and she wore a pretty lace blush dress from Heirlooms Bridal. She complemented her look with a gorgeous flower crown for a very sweet garden-like feel. My favourite moment was when Laura came through the doors of the Doctor’s House chapel and saw Jim for the first time that morning. Her reaction said everything. It was so sweet!
The rain didn’t stop when we were scheduled to take photos, but the bridal party persevered and we went out in the rain for some balloon photos! I really love when brides bring in balloons because it makes for such fun and colourful photos (especially on a dreary day!) Laura and Jim’s wedding reception was held in the Garden Room of The Doctor’s House and was filled with balloons, cute vintage tea cups and garden-like centrepieces. It may have been cold and wet outside, but it felt so warm and spring-like inside and it was all because of Laura’s vision and hard work that she had for her wedding day!
Their reception was filled with beautiful family moments that was so so special. Laura and Jim shared such a sweet first dance as husband and wife. It was followed by an even more emotional dance when Laura and her father took the floor. Laura’s sister’s speech in honour of the couple was surely memorable as it included a very personally written rap to the beat of Fresh Prince of Bellair (inclusive of sunglasses and all)!
Laura and Jim, thank you for trusting me to capture this special day. I wish you both so much happiness together!
