When we met up with Vanessa & Jacob a few weeks ago to do their pre-wedding shoot, they asked if they would help us with some photos they wanted to use for the table names for their Sperry wedding. “Sure”, we said. What this actually involved was Jacob (a self confessed Betty’s bakery addict) having his faced shoved into a Yorkshire tea-loaf, having vanilla slices smeared all over his face and chocolate eclairs pushed down his throat – all by his very gleeful fiance Vanessa. We knew there and then this was going to be a really enjoyable wedding!
It was a lovely village Sperry wedding. Vanessa & Jacob had hired a huge Sperry Tent from the brilliant folks at Papakata and had it erected in a field a stone’s throw from their beautiful self-built home in the stunning village of Whixley, York, and they were married in the church just over the fence from their back garden. After the service they jumped into their wedding motor and sped off through the local country lanes – pursued at a distance by a couple of photographers, one hanging dangerously out of the passenger window! After some couple photos Vanessa & Jacob pulled up outside their beautifully dressed Sperry and it was time for the party to begin. And some party it was! Sun, laughter, tears, great food, plenty of summer liquid refreshment, brilliant speeches and a really impressive band that had the dancefloor heaving.
It was a fantastic day and we loved capturing it all for them. Congratulations to a truly lovely couple and happy honeymoon in Italy!
