This photo makes me smile every time - Jane's expression is a classic
Posed wedding photography can be stunning – but today this natural picture of Jane’s brilliant smile from under a sea of umbrellas with rain pouring down is so wonderful, I love it!
There’s so much to this Beeston Manor wedding I didn’t know what to call the blog post. I could have started with the lovely purple theme and details: the quirky bouquet made of satin roses, buttons and beads, interwoven with family heirlooms is gorgeous.

Then there’s the first dance and the time when Chris picked up his trombone to play with the band, to Jane’s surprise and delight! I absolutely adore special moments like this and the photographs capture the moment beautifully.
Jane's wedding shoes - I love the lace trim
The wedding theme was purple. Jane and her bridesmaids made an early start with the colour scheme!
The girls look beautiful with hair and make up done, even in their matching purple robes!
Beautiful embroidery detailing on the wedding dress
Jane and her dad before the wedding
Jane’s expressive smile makes these photographs. She’s beautiful – clearly on the inside as well as on the surface! This photograph with her dad captures a lovely moment.
Chris and his groomsmen - a nice bit of wedding photographer magic here!

Jane gave Chris this exquisite pocket watch as a wedding present. I think it's beautiful (and I want one!)

Jane and Chris's wedding ceremony at St Peter's Church
I shouldn’t say this really… but the vicar actually looks like God. More pics on the McAvoy Photography blog. Sorry. But he really does.

This is Toby, who popped along to say hello to his mum after the ceremony. Isn't he sweet!

Jane and Chris can't hide from confetti under their umbrellas
The portrait shots are fab – the wind makes them even better
A wedding veil blowing in the wind won't necessarily do what you'd like it to... but this is brilliant!
And finally we see Jane in her wedding dress and that gorgeous veil. She’s absolutely beautiful and her smile lights up the photograph.

Wedding breakfast and speeches
Chris does a little last minute cramming for his speech
The wedding table plan: like little cakes of colour! I love this idea.
I don't know what a wedding is yet, but I like it!
Chris's speech went down very well!
I love Jane's expression in this photo

Thanks to McAvoy photography for sending in this wedding for us to share. I hope you enjoy the moments as much as I have!
Jane and Chris – I hope your marriage is as full of those blissful happy moments as your wedding day clearly was!
