Just Married! All the Photos from my wedding
You may have noticed that I’ve not been blogging recently. TLS has been a little bit neglected over the last couple of months. But I have a seriously good reason for it. I just got married! And…now I have all of the photos back from my wedding, I can finally share it with all of you.
Blogging without having shared the photographs with you from my wedding just felt odd. So I took a bit of a ‘time out’ from Three Little Secrets. And decided that the next post I would share with you would be our wedding photographs. They have finally all arrived. So here they are – welcome to the Jordan-Haylock wedding.
I’m going to do this as an overview post. And then over the next couple of weeks I’m going to blog about each element of our wedding. Like me, the bride. Josh, the groom. Our Bridal Party (Fashion and Details), The Ceremony (including our hymns and readings and vows). The Tablescapes, including everything we hired, everything we bought and everything we made. The Flowers, because flowers need their own blog post! The Creative Details, because I can’t be a wedding planner and designer without showing you those. And last but not least, The Party!
I could not have created this day without all of my amazing suppliers, family and friends. So this is a thank you to all of them.
So as an overview blog post, I thought I share with you my top three parts of our wedding day. Along with all of our incredible suppliers and family and friends that we couldn’t have done this day without.
Of course, if there is anything that you think of that you’d desperately like to see too. Then just let me know in the comments and I will make sure to include it in one of the upcoming more detailed wedding blog posts.
In the words of my Maid of Honour, she expected our day to be amazing. But she didn’t really understand the meaning of amazing until she saw everything come together. It really was better than I ever could have imagined. But I couldn’t have done it without the amazing suppliers that I worked with to make this day happen.
The very best wedding suppliers
It really was the very best day of my life! And despite everything being amazing, there were a few moments that really stood out.
It really was the very best day of my life. But there are a few moments that really stand out for me on the day.
My top three wedding moments
1. The Ceremony – I never really thought that the ceremony would be within my top three moments. But it was the time that I felt most connected to Josh. It almost felt as though we were the only people in the church. And I genuinely forgot at points that we had 70 of our nearest and dearest watching us. You simply can’t prepare for the moment you say your vows for real. And so I think that’s why it was one of the most special.
2. Walking into our wedding breakfast – I cannot tell you the number of times I visually dreamt up that room in my head. I knew every single detail off by heart. Including the order the napkins were meant to be in. I even knew the table plan off the top of my head, sad I know, but true! And so to walk in to the room you’ve been envisioning for what feels like forever, to find it is better than you ever could have imagined, is nothing other than INCREDIBLE.
It’s at this point that I would like to say a special thank you to Lauren Alway, who just took everything on as though it was no stress at all. To Lisa Groves, who styled my vision to perfection on the day. To Chloe Williams, who captured the whole table set up from start to finish. And last but not least to my Mum and Dad. My mum made and embroidered every napkin. My dad made every single candlestick, all 127 of them.
3. Time with our Photographer and Videographer – That time alone with Josh, Ben and James was everything. Everyone tells you to take time out to just be alone with your new husband or your new wife. And you really need it. But that ‘time alone’ is usually also spent with your photographer and videographer too.
And we just had the VERY best time together. I laughed the most, smiled the most and relaxed the most with them. I quite simply would not have wanted to do our day without them.
You simply cannot prepare for the moment that you say your vows for real. For that moment that you actually become a wife. Or for the moment you actually become a husband.
It might be quite cliche to say that it really was the very best day of my life. But it was! You also might have heard the phrase before that it just all flies by too quickly. But it did! You may hate me for saying that I just want to do it all over again. But I do!
I can’t even begin to describe how I felt on that wedding morning. Being your own wedding planner and a bride can sometimes be tricky. You know everything already. And perhaps don’t get that same excitement that a new bride to be does throughout the planning journey. Because you’ve done it all before. But on that morning I felt like a bride.
I’ve never felt so beautiful, so special and loved in all of my life. And I don’t know how I could ever feel that feeling again. Our wedding day, and my feelings on our day have become a memory that I will treasure forever. And I’m so proud to be able to share it with all of you. So that you can feel some of that love too.
I can’t wait to go into more detail on everything. Explaining our table plan, our stationery journey, the flowers and where absolutely everything was from and why we chose it. This is just the start, and a little summary of our day. So I’m hoping you join me next week, for the slightly more detailed posts.
Images – All Photographs throughout this post were taken by Benjamin Wheeler or Stories by Chloe. Ben was our wedding photographer, and Chloe was hired to shoot all of our behind the scenes photos. To me the set up is just as important as everything set. So to ensure we captured everything, I hired two photographers to capture very different things.
