Winter goodness coming your way...
My final wedding of 2021 and what a one to go out on! Esther and Ethan got married at Esther's family church and turned it into a beautiful winter wedding venue for all the celebrating. It was an incredible effort from everyone involved to make Esther and Ethan's winter wedding dreams come true.
Let's start at the beginning
To start the day I joined Esther, her family and best friend at their family home. You can tell from the off that family is incredibly important to Esther. With 3 sisters, a niece and a nephew the wedding morning was filled with a lot of life and joy. It was all very chilled as they did their own hair and make up, enjoyed bucks fizz and shed tears seeing Esther in her dress for the first time.
It may have been a cold winter day, but there was nothing but warmth in this wedding
The excitement was felt as everyone waited for Esther to arrive. Before walking down the aisle, her bridesmaids gathered around her and prayed for her and the day ahead and it was a beautiful moment to witness. Then absolute joy followed; the ceremony, the cheers as they were pronounced husband and wife, alllll the confetti and then the couple shoot. I loved this time together. We wondered around the church grounds and then spent time walking around the gorgeous little town of Alfriston. There was a lot of smiles from onlookers as Esther and Ethan spent time walking together enjoying the quiet first moments of being married.
Joy, joy and more joy
That is how I would describe the rest of this gorgeous day. Filled with all the things Esther and Ethan love, they truly planned a wedding day that they would actually enjoy and that is always a delight to see and be a part of.
