Joanne & Jason's Country Wedding | Blandford Forum | Dorset

Joanne and Jason got married on 17th September in Shillingstone, a village just outside Blandford Forum. We met Joanne and her bridesmaids at her parents house as preparations got underway.  During the morning we had a visit from one of the ushers, who had come to deliver a gift from Jason to Joanne.  He had bought her a beautiful Pandora bracelet with a church charm for her to wear.

We made our way to Shillingstone Church, where the ceremony was taking place and guests were filling up the pews. Joanne arrived in a vintage car and walked with her father and bridesmaids to the church.

Following the ceremony as guests were congratulating the couple as if out of nowhere the heavens opened. We all dashed for cover under a yew tree, whilst we waited for it to blow over, unfortunately that didn't happen so we headed off to Durweston Village Hall for the reception.  As soon as we arrived it had stopped; There's no beating English weather!

We didn't let it put a damper on the day and were able to head out on the green for some shots with the couple in the beautiful evening light, which you can see in Part II
