Our last wedding of the summer (yes thats it, the summer has gone!) was Matt and Jo. The planning for this wedding was a little different to normal as they did the bulk of it from New Zealand where they now live. Having our initial meetings with a couple over Skype was a first for us but it worked, we got on like a house on fire. These guys were beautiful and the day was one of those really relaxing ones, for us anyway.
Jo was so beautiful on the day and every shot of her had her perfect smile, Matt wasn’t too bad either! Here are a few shots from the day.

The day started with a little bit of rain, thankfully that had stopped by the time the ceremony had finished. Here is one of my favourites from the day with Jo managing to look effortlessly elegant.
I was with Matt in the morning and I saw one of the coolest things ever! Opening a bottle of champagne with a champagne flute where you actually break the top of the bottle off using only the champagne flute itself. I didn’t believe it was possible until I saw it. Here is Matt having a go.
We’d planned on doing some of the shots with Matt and Jo in a beautiful field across the road from the Sheene Mill which had some lovely grasses but unfortunately the farmer decided to plough it two days before the wedding, ah well. These things happen.
At the end of the night Clive, Matt’s dad, surprised them with some lanterns on the upper lawns of the venue, it was a really nice end to a great day.
