Jess & Luke
Wedding Day: Sat 13th October 2013
Even the most amazing wedding suppliers cannot control that most uncontrollable of things…..the weather. However, our beautiful couple; Jessica and Luke and all of their service providers weredetermined that despite the best efforts of some really torrential weather – they would have the The initial plan was to hold the wedding ceremony in the garden of Jessica’s grandparent’smagnificent house in Maylands.
Sadly Jessica lost her mother to Asthma some time ago and since then her Grandparents have supported her and subsequently Luke and their 2 beautiful girls. The weather was against us all right from the start that day and, although the ceremony was, set up in the garden, the pouring rain meant that the wedding ceremony in the garden was not to be and everyone pulled together to set up in the hallway of the house, just as beautiful but, just a wee bit less spacious!
Following the ceremony it was photograph location time, something made incredibly difficult by the persistent rain which did not let up at all. However, ever the professional photographer; JamesBurton and Anita & Tony from the fabulously versatile Tonita did not let it deter them. They took Jess and Luke to all of the planned locations and managed to get some amazing shots and footagedespite the constant rain (which was becoming very tiresome at this point!). Locations included in and around Guildford to capture some beautiful architectural and park shots, a Swan Valley Wineryto make the most of the vines and then on to The Car Gallery at Mulberry on Swan as there was no longer any point in trying to take photographs or video footage outside!
Then, it was on to the beautiful reception at in the Burgundy Room at the gorgeous Mulberry on Swan. The guests enjoyed fabulous pre dinner drinks and canapés inside the reception room (due,once more to the weather) but still making the most of the views overlooking the Swan River.
Everyone feasted on a sumptuous buffet meal (with a menu personalised by the bride and groom) and then enjoyed some both moving and very funny speeches. After the formalities it was time toboogie and the man behind the sounds – none other than the fabulous Mr Tony Doney from the equally fabulous Tonita.
Everyone had an amazing time – including those of us who were lucky enough to be involved in this extra special couple’s day.
