Well the Butler family are just the most gorgeous little family ever!! Jemma and Ben met at a mutual friends 18th birthday party. They had actually been to the same school but Ben can’t remember this!!!! You could call them childhood sweethearts! They have known each other for years and have built up the most beautiful relationship. They have an amazing and stunning daughter, Stella. She is an absolute credit to these two. Jemma and Ben got engaged in October 2017 and it took them a year to plan their wedding. They chose Cain Manor to host their fun and relaxed wedding day.
Cain Manor has the most gorgeous bridal suite where Jemma and the girls got ready. The sunshine was beaming through the windows, they were lucky to have a sunny autumn day! I think Cain Manor must have some magic to it, every time I have been to this venue there has been amazing weather! Maybe the two of us together are a good omen! Haha!
And so the girls were ready to walk down the aisle. It was an emotional ceremony, there wasn’t a dry eye in sight! Okay, well maybe Ben’s hehe. He seemed to hold it together. During Jemma and Ben’s vowels I caught a glimpse of Stella. She was looking at her parents in complete awe, admiration and love. It was the most special moment to witness and be able to capture! Also I was able to grab a snap shot moment of Jemma’s Nan laughing. Jemma told me her Nan doesn’t like to smile for pictures, so to be able to have this as a memory is so precious!
After the Ceremony
After the ceremony Jemma and Ben could completely relax. This was their favourite part of the day. I know a lot of couples don’t like to be the centre of attention, or for people to be looking at them. This was the case for these two, so now was the time to really enjoy the day. And to enjoy what Cain Manor has to offer. Gorgeous gardens, the sun kissed patio and a lovely view. There was a magician doing his rounds to keep the guests entertained whilst enjoying their drinks and nibbles.
It was then on to the wedding breakfast! They enjoyed a beautiful meal, and just before they started the speeches I stole them away for a moment. I couldn’t let the sun set without getting a few more shots of them. After the cake was cut and the first dance over it was really time to party! Jemma and Ben’s first dance song was ‘Baby I’m Yours’ by The Arctic Monkeys. Which happen to be my favourite band…I knew I liked this couple!! In fact they have a great taste in music! Foals, Everything Everything and Maximo Park are few of their fav bands!
From the moment you walked through our front door I know you would be the right photographer for us. Not only are your pictures amazing your personality is too. You made us feel totally easy about having our photo taken (especially as we’re not really camera confident) It was as if you were one of the wedding guests , So many people have commented on the photos and what a lovely friendly lady you are. Jemma and Ben
