A Rudding Park Wedding for Zoe and James

A beautiful hot, sunny day dawned despite the doomsday weather forecast and my boot full of umbrellas!

It’d been a while since I was last at Rudding Park, and they’d been very busy building a new spa – including an outdoor rooftop swimming pool! The gardens were looking pretty with their flowers in bloom, and the kitchen garden was luschous and green. Very nice indeed!

Today’s lucky couple who got to enjoy the sunshine were Zoe and James. I spent some time with Zoe and her family while they were busy getting ready. Her dad had the task of removing her sister’s nail polish, first time I think I’ve seen this happen haha!

While the hair and makeup were doing their thing I popped across to see how James and his best man were doing. Quietly, and without fuss they were helping each other with getting ready. So I documented their moments and headed back to the girls.

Beautiful Zoe was waiting patiently to be helped into her dress while her mum carefully chose her jewellery, and the bridesmaids put in a call for a last minute chicken nugget run haha!

I knew that Zoe was going to knock James’ socks off when he saw her, she looked absolutely stunning.

The ceremony was followed by lawn games and lots of catching up between friends and family, which set the scene nicely for the rest of the day. Perfect.
