James and Lucy’s Essex Wedding
Saturday 17th March saw us traveling to Essex for the wedding of Lucy and James. Just over 100 friends and family gathered in Rochford for the ceremony and reception of the couple. James is the head vet of the RSPCA’s companion animal department and Lucy is a vet working for the PDSA. They met when they were studying to become vets at University in Bristol.
Lucy got ready at the reception venue and shared pink champagne with friends and family. Her striking ivory silk and lace dress was from Dress By Design in Gloucester and her shoes, unusually were royal blue by Ted Baker.
The weather was forecast for heavy rain but fortunately the rain held off for the ceremony at St Andrews Church, a 1200 year old church in Ashingdon near Rochford. It was a lovely ceremony including Holy Communion and both James and Lucy looked relaxed and very happy. There were no bridesmaids at the wedding but they had a very fetching Page Boy who looked very dapper in his bow-tie, waistcoat and red Converse All Stars!
The couple had organised a champagne reception at the Village Hall then it was onwards to The Lawns, a lovely country house near Rochford where the reception was held. The wedding breakfast was served in the beautiful Orangery complete with clever table decorations made from Marmite jars! The food was unusually all vegetarian but was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Here are a few moments captured from their special day…
