Sammy + Jonny's Preston Church + DIY Wedding
Sammy + Jonny have been dating since HIGH SCHOOL, how sweet is that!
Sammy and her girl gang started their day getting pampered by the lovely Nala + Knot at the gorgeous Oak Royal Golf Club. Jonny got prepared with his closest family and friends at home and was being photographed by the talented Jo Boulton, thanks Jo!
They decided to tie the knot at Holy Trinity Church in Hoghton and it was a lovely ceremony filled with tears and plenty of laughter. The celebrations continued at the local 'Hoghton Village Hall' which their families had completed transformed into what I can only describe as a DIY indoor tent. So much thought and planning had gone into the decor and it was an amazing effort from everyone. They didn't want a traditional sit-down meal and opt'd for a cheese + cold meats table with unlimited alcohol for everyone! (yes I was driving, dammit) The cake was to die for and had been lovingly made by one of Sammy's bridesmaids over at 'Baked by Rach'
It was such a lovely day (a little too lovely in a photographers eyes) but we found some shade and took what turned out to be, some of my favourite family photographs ever, everyone was so fun and excited about the day and it beamed through everyones smiles.
Towards the end of the evening I whisked Sammy + Jonny away for some intimate couples portraits and had a bit of fun jumping fences, getting caught (oops) and taking some gorgeous portraits during golden hour.
Here’s a few of their photographs from their beautiful church + DIY wedding.
