Another new addition is a huge, airy function room with a great mix of a traditional looking timbered ceiling and large modern windows and skylights. The light comes flooding in here and creates a fantastic atmosphere. At the risk of getting all 'Grand Designs' about it, there is also now a long, tunnel shaped ceremony room which easily held all of Joanne and Graham's guests. This room was lit by a plethora of candles and dressed beautifully. Very cosy indeed!

Joanne hadn't been sure about having bridal preparation shots. I never push my clients into having them, but I do perhaps, gently nudge them! My take on it is; I'm there anyway - let me take the photos and if you hate them, you never need to look at them - and I promise not to get in the way! I've yet to encounter a bride who's had anything bad to say about her photos of that excited, nervous, fun hour or so before the ceremony.

The ceremony was heartfelt, but not without its share of laughs, not least when Joanne muddled up her vows a little and had to start again!
