Are 2 day wedding celebrations becoming the norm? Probably not, but Bec and Jon’s epic 2 day event was the second I’ve had the opportunity to photograph. Bec and Jon’s first day was originally going to be a low key, intimate affair with minimal numbers but they couldn’t keep away the droves of friends and family who wanted to share in the official wedding ceremony. Day 2 was going to be the biggie! Hiring out the whole of Darwin Lake cottages, creating an amazing atmosphere to simply enjoy being with great friends.
We’re grateful we were a part of Bec and Jon’s celebrations. Of course, we took several thousand photos over the 2 days but here are just a few to give you an insight into what was something very special indeed.
Bec’s preparations took place at her parent’s home just a few hundred yards away from the church.
Time for the Morris family to take the short walk to church – photo bombed by the cat!
Definitely got the rings!
Mr and Mrs Powles!
The weather was kind to us so we headed up to Ashover rock for a few portraits. It had rained significantly for the few days before, the ground was rather wet and muddy, but it wouldn’t put Bec off from going up there…..even in the Pradas!
Back at the Nettle pub in Ashover.
Day 2 began with brunch for everyone. Followed by a game of mud-football. The game wasn’t pretty but the guys had insane fun.
Time to shower down and get ready for a blessing service.
Time for afternoon tea followed by speeches.
And the party continued…..
Jon entertaining guests with a steel pan rendition.
I have to say that Jon’s groomsmen were great fun and happy to indulge me with some of my strange photo concepts.
This is how you do a cheese cake!
Wishing Jon and Bec a fantastic married life together! Thanks again for allowing us to be a part of your amazing wedding.
