A Langshott Manor Wedding

Like so many couples this last 18 months, Josie and Ollie had been forced to postpone their wedding.
In fact, yesterday was 5th time lucky for these two!
I’m delighted to say that good things do indeed come to those who wait though, and yesterday - in the beautiful setting of Langshott Manor in Horley, these two wonderful people had the wedding of their dreams.

I spent the morning with Josie and her girls as they got ready, chatted, laughed and drank some extra strong Mimosas. They also enjoyed peeking out of the window to watch as the guests arrived.

When Ollie and his boys arrived, he had one of them hand deliver a rather lovely wedding day gift to Josie. ‘First Day, Yes Day, Forever Day’. Ollie is a smoothie, huh!?

Before long, it was go time. Ollie was nervously awaiting his bride, but he didn’t have to wait too long before she appeared and was proudly escorted down the aisle by her Dad, Martin. 

A beautiful and emotional ceremony followed and was sealed with a kiss and rapturous applause from all of Josie and Ollie’s guests.

And then a very special (and very good) boy arrived to share the moment - an extremely excited Woody was super keen to celebrate with his Mum and Dad, and he even dressed up for the occasion! 

Josie and Ollie’s guests were keen to pelt them with confetti and well, I love a good confetti shot so I was super happy to line everyone up and let them do their thing!

All of the excitement was getting a little bit too much for Woody and it was time for him to head home for a nap - but we managed to sneak off to a quiet area of Langshott Manor for him to get a few cuddles and spend a few minutes with Josie and Ollie before he headed off. I might have snuck a few cuddles with him too…

Shortly after, I was hanging out of a second floor window grabbing this shot of the happy couple and all of their guests.

Now then, let me introduce you to Cindy. Cindy wanted to take a ‘third wheel’ picture with Josie and Ollie and she absolutely  smashed it!

The happy couple and I left their guests to enjoy some drinks and some lawn games while we took a little walk around the gardens at Langshott Manor for some couple’s pictures.

Oh, and having mentioned lawn games - let me quickly show you what a man that brags ’I’ll get at least four out of five of these’ and then scores a zero looks like.

Time was flying by and soon it was time for the first dance and any couple that picks Luke Combs as their first dance are my kind of couple!

One thing that is true at most weddings is that the later into the evening it is, the more ‘lubricated’ people become and the more fun group shots become, but also the more outrageous the photobombs become. This might be my favourite photobomb ever!

It soon became time for me to leave Josie and Ollie and all of their wonderful guests to it, but as always, I asked if they fancied a few night time shots before I left.
I especially like the second one. To get this one I just asked them to stand in the window and put a flash behind them (the room itself was completely dark). I then said to ’just cuddle up and be all cute and stuff’ and I ran outside and took some shots while the room was lighting up like a rave!

That’s all for this little sneak peek, folks.
I’ll add one or two more pictures from this day to the Facebook and Instagram pages as I edit them, so feel free to follow along over there. 

Big thanks to all at Langshott Manor and to all of Josie and Ollie’s guests for making me feel so welcome and taking such good care of me. Special mentions to Jess and Robin for their help in rounding people up for the group shots and for dress ‘floofing’!

Most of all though, big congratulations to Josie and Ollie!
