BLESSING CEREMONY AT ST.JAMES CHURCH, FINCHAMPSTEAD – JACKIE AND ANTONI

YOU NEVER WOULD HAVE GUESSED IT WAS A BLESSING, THE CEREMONY WAS SO GORGEOUS!

Jackie and Antoni had a beautiful blessing ceremony in May at the gorgeous St. James Church, which is a beautiful parish in Finchampstead. It was a beautiful day and the sun shone all day long!

The ceremony

The ceremony was an intimate affair in the main church room. The church itself was so intimate, it really created a lovely atmosphere for the entire blessing. During the ceremony they had a choir perform. It was so beautiful and so personal. The songs the choir chose were close to the couples heart, watching and listening to everyone chime in was such a special moment.

The reception

The reception was at a local pub down the road. They chose Checkers because the food is incredible and they just love it there. It was a intimate wedding, which was so unique, just like them. I love shooting intimate weddings because the people are so lovely. You really feel like part of the family by the end of the day.

The best part of the day really was the ceremony, because it was so romantic and personal. They also had a candle lighting ceremony  – it was so touching to see and really highlighted that two are becoming one!

The couple

Jackie wore beautiful white gown and Antoni wore such a lovely three piece suit and they looked so perfect. Jackie’s dress was the same she wore when they eloped abroad and Antoni’s shoes were finally located (as he couldn't find them for our engagement session)! They really both looked amazing.

The couple met at a gym, where they both worked and have been together for quite a few years. They got in touch with me in March and their enquiry was so personal. They said they wanted a relaxed photographer, and I was really touched that they just really wanted me there.

Jackie and Antoni’s wedding was everything I love about weddings and so much fun. Here’s their gorgeous wedding!
