Julia & Ian

When Julia and Ian decided to get married it was an amazing day and a mixture of New Zealand and quintessentially British touches throughout the day.
As Ian is originally from New Zealand there were family and friends flying in all week to take part in the celebrations with the majority of them staying at Julia & Ian's home!

The couple were to have a Civil Ceremony followed by a Church Blessing at St Nicolas Church in Chislehurst with the Wedding Breakfast taking place at The Bulls Head in Chislehurst.

So after some last minutes preparations which included the boy donning the same socks! It was off to the Civil Ceremony

The Civil Ceremony was beautiful especially touching as Julia was given away by her son Cosmo.

Julia's choice of colours which worked beautifully ivory and chocolate brown. The theme was carried through from the Bridesmaids dresses, to the men's suits, then into the reception decoration. The overall effect was very classy and stylish.

The Church Blessing was very emotional and everything
Julia & Ian wanted it to be.

After the Blessing there was some time for the couple to be alone and take some stunning photographs.

It was then time to take the Guests back for the Wedding Reception where they were treated to a big band sound with Pimms.

The music was brilliant the weather was amazing!

Inside we continued the colour theme and added some NZ touches with the tables named after New Zealand Islands that Ian had visited as a child. The overall look was very stylish.

The couple chose a typical New Zealand cake for their wedding cake, mini fresh fruit Pavlova's were displayed on a tiered cake stand, they looked great and tasted even better. It was then time for the speeches and the children had written their own very touching speeches where were a tribute to Julia.

And then the band began to swing....................

It was a beautiful day, a wonderful evening and just time for one last romantic photograph.
