Southdowns Manor Wedding Photography - Jessie & Tom

I don't think I've ever photographed such a fun and smiley wedding!

I first met Jessie & Tom back in 2015, as they were looking for a wedding photographer 18 months before their wedding day (which meant they were serious about their wedding photography!) Their fun and bubbly personalities really shone through and I knew instantly that I wanted to shoot their wedding. I was really pleased that they booked me!

The big day took place at Southdowns Manor in Hampshire, a midweek, intimate gathering with close friends and family. It was a gorgeous, sunny April day and to add to the fun and sunshine, Jessie rocked up in a bright orange Dodge. This incredible bride had decided to not only do her own makeup, but her bridesmaids as well. It's not every wedding that you get to see the bride pampering and preparing herself and her bridesmaids at the same time. This made for some fantastic ‘getting ready’ photographs.

Jessie and Tom’s children, Lola & Elias, were the life and soul of the wedding. Lola beamed as she walked down the aisle ahead of her mum, but not as much as her mum was smiling coming back down the aisle after getting hitched to the lovely Tom! You can see her reaction in the photographs below. It’s a moment of celebration, beauty and pure joy.
