On a very sunny day in April 2017, Ian and Jo got married at Clearwell Castle in the Forest of Dean
We were really looking forward to photographing Ian and Jo's wedding, from the moment we met them we knew it was going to be a lovely wedding as these guys are very easy to get along with, plus we were very much looking forward to shooting at Clearwell Castle again and as expected Clearwell Castle and its beautiful grounds didn't disappoint and looked stunning in the gorgeous spring sunshine.
Ian was busy getting ready with his groomsmen in one of the cottages at the Castle, as soon as they were ready they had a few photos before guests started arriving. Jo was so calm during morning preparations even though there was lots going on around her, Mum and Bridesmaids were all getting ready with her so there was lots of chatter and laughter. As perfume and hairspray filled the air the bridesmaids slipped in to their gorgeous gowns and once they were ready it was time for Jo to step into her beautiful wedding dress.
The bridesmaids led the way for a smiling Jo who walked down the aisle with her dad by her side. The ceremony was lovely to photograph with both Ian and Jo smiling throughout and after the giving and receiving of rings the newlyweds celebrated with a kiss!
After the requested group photos had been taken, Ian and Jo went for a little walk around the gorgeous grounds for the Bride and Groom Portraits. After a few photos, the Bride and Groom joined their family and friends for a glass of pimms, lawn games and to welcome them to their wedding.
The evening celebrations started with Jo throwing her bouquet to all the single ladies, soon after guests enjoyed sparklers and a wonderful firework display.
Congratulations Ian and Jo!
