Our next April wedding was Amber and Joe’s day. This was another one that we’d been looking forward to ever since we first met Amber and Joe as they’re such a sweet, happy and lovely couple so we were delighted when they booked us to share in their day. This wedding was a meeting of two families from either side of the world. Amber is from Australia and Joe is from England so there were a lot of family and friends who came over from Australia which was fab. We did feel sorry for the Australians though when instead of being greeted by a lovely warm spring day they were met with cold, wind, rain and grey skies, it must have been extra chilly for them as they’d come from very warm weather, they were all in good spirits though and smiled and enjoyed the day regardless of what the weather threw at us!
Their ceremony took place at St John’s church in Ipswich and it was beautiful. Their pastor kindly let me stand at the front and David at the back of the church so we could get photos from both angles which was brill. We then came out for confetti and I honestly don’t think we have ever seen such a range (all provided by the couple) or such a mass throwing which was so much fun! They then had an afternoon tea in the Church Hall before heading on to their wedding breakfast at Jimmy’s Farm. We had planned to take some photos at Nacton Shores on the way to their reception but when we got down there it was very wet, cold and windy so we literally took a couple of shots and then moved on to Jimmy’s Farm but I do secretly love the photos that were taken down at Nacton Shores as Amber continues to grin away whilst Joe grimaces – they make me laugh everytime I look them (in a good way and I know they make them smile too!).
Amber’s dress had come all the way over from Australia and it was very different, it fitted her like a glove and she looked beautiful. I personally think it’s one of the most beautiful dresses I’ve ever seen! It was also touching that despite being heavily pregnant Amber’s bestfriend came over from Australia to be her bridesmaid! It just shows how loved this couple are that people wanted to travel half way round the world to be a part of their day. Joe looked handsome in his suit and you could see all his nerves melt away as soon as Amber came up the aisle and stood by his side.
Here’s a small selection from their day for you all to look at
