Jenny and Kieran's emotional Southwood Hall wedding
It was a very emotional day from the word go as Kieran and Jenny prepared to become husband and wife.
Tracey Ward Hair and Love Moi Makeup assisted the bridal party with their preparations in Cartshed Lodge before they made their way over to the barn.
As the bridesmaids stood ready to make their way down the aisle the adorable little flower girls practised their best smiles while Jenny’s nerves were calmed with a few words from dad.
To say that Jenny made a stunning bride is an understatement. Her elegant, slinky dress, long veil and hair piece were simply beautiful. Kieran was brought to tears at the sight of his wife-to-be as she continued her journey down the aisle to spontaneous applause!
A very emotional reading was a highlight of the ceremony and made the service even more personal. The ceremony took place in the barn with a backdrop of the meadows beyond and was decorated with chair sashes and tall gold candelabra – very romantic!
Once married, Jenny and Kieran made their way outside for a drink and chef had prepared scones with jam and cream for guests to enjoy while they had photographs taken. A gorgeous moment was shared by all as the newly-weds were showered with confetti by their nearest and dearest much to the delight of the little flower girls.
As guests made their way into the barn ahead of the wedding breakfast, the fabulously unique seating plan created by Jenny’s sister was the focus of their attention. Kieran and Jenny had made it easy for guests to find their seats at the table by producing place cards that bore a photograph of each individual guest – no mean feat (including one of me).
With guests in their seats our couple were announced into the room by the father of the bride and enjoyed their moment with a lively soundtrack and guests applauding and cheering them.
Mother of the bride was on hand to provide Jenny with her very own bib (she even managed to make this look classy!) and she was safe to tuck into her table carved triple smoked gammon and chocolate brownie.
For something a little different, Kieran and Jenny decided that they would like to have a cake made of cheese and after cutting into one of the tiers, guests enjoyed a selection of British cheeses with their coffee as the perfect way to finish their meal.
Following more tears over speeches, Bill Downs joined the party to play a little something for the special couple to dance to for the first time as husband and wife and they were soon surrounded by their friends and family to party on!
Congratulations Jenny and Kieran... I hope your wedding photos help you to relive your special day for many years to come.
