Amy & Dave's Wedding - Lovekyn Chapel, Kingston & Weston Green, Thames Ditton (Surrey)

Who in their right mind isn't going to want to work at the Lovekyn Chapel? The moment Amy contacted me last year I loved this venue name (so sweet) & couldn't wait to meet them to hear all about their plans. And then the ten months since I last saw them flew by and I found myself panicking about the Kingston one-way system! Luckily a run through on the Thursday eased my nerves - they had everything planned perfectly and it was a simple journey from Kelly's to the Lovekyn Chapel and then onto Weston Green. Piece of cake.

At Kelly's I found everyone very organised and calm and all of the girls right on time. Amy looked stunning in her gorgeous embroidered dress - it suited her beautifully. Carol, Kelly & Louise toned in perfectly. On to the Chapel to find Dave looking relaxed with his Parents, JJ & Nick. Everyone looked very colourful as they arrived and although the weather had been a little dismal in the morning there were signs of sun poking through every now and again. Amy arrived and walked up the aisle with Carol and the smiles that Amy & Dave greeted each other with were fantastic. A very personal and touching ceremony with a reading from Liz, piano playing from Kelly & cello by Juliet And when the lovely Surrey Registrars announced that they were husband and wife everyone rang their little silver bells with great gusto. Brilliant!

A few photos outside (in full sun now) before everyone headed down to Weston Green. I'm afraid I stole Amy & Dave for some photos on the golf course which had some fabuolous trees... as long as the sun held out. And it did. Result! They were fantastic and I think that the results are magical. They had a vision very early on about where to have their photos taken and they were spot on. I loved it although I'm not sure Amy's feet will fogive me in a hurry, not to the mention the monstrous horsefly siege underneath her dress... poor girl.

They made their grand entrance to their beautifully-decorated marquee to be met by Marie with confetti. A delicious BBQ followed by speeches from Carol, Dave, JJ & Nick. Quite the funniest reactions from Amy & Dave as Nick regaled everyone with the most embarrassing stories he could possibly have mentioned. Just the way I like it... [I'm so mean!]

First dance and then lots of crazy dancing especially from the smaller wedding guests who really did go for it. A great swing band who got into the spirit of things and as I walked back over the Green to my car I looked around to see/hear the party in full swing and a memory of a day full of smiles.

Thanks for looking after me, welcoming me into your day so wonderfully, the delicious food and copious amounts of lemonade. I had a thoroughly good time and hope Wales was fab. Look forward to seeing you tomorrow! xx [P.S. Thanks so much for wonderful flowers. Emma x]
