* From Oklahoma to the UK *
I was so excited to hear from Emily & Ed (all the way from Oklahoma!), who were having their wedding blessing here in the UK, followed by a relaxed celebration at Ed’s Aunt’s house. Ed was born in England and still has a lot of family over here, so it made a lovely excuse for them to come back for a celebration.
The blessing took place at All Saints Church in Shelsley Beauchamp, Worcestershire, in September 2017. The church has a lot of family history for Ed, including the gate that was made by his Great Grandfather (there is a photo of Ed with Emily behind it a little further below). The church was filled with a great mix of American and British guests, plus a few cardboard cutouts of those who couldn’t make it, including Emily & Ed’s beloved dogs who, rather understandably, had to stay home in Oklahoma!
The couple were so relaxed and heaps of fun! They seemed to have the perfect day celebrating with family and close friends. I particularly loved walking around the grounds of the house later in the day capturing Emily & Ed on their own, and seeing their awesome personalities shine…!
