An Elmers Court Wedding - Nicky and Joe

Well what can I say? Nicky and Joe know how to throw a Wedding!

They were married yesterday at Elmers Court Country Club - a special venue for a special day.
Nicky got ready with her girls in the hotel and I have to say, it was one of the calmest and most laid back Bridal Rooms I’ve ever been in. 

Joe was downstairs getting ready with his Dad.

As the ceremony approached, Nicky got into her dress and all of her girls were waiting to see her all ready to roll. It’s fair to say they were suitably impressed! 

Before we really knew it, all of their guests were seated outside and it was show time! 
Nicky was escorted down the aisle by her very proud Nan, and the moment Joe saw her, he got a little emotional. Exactly as it should be.

The ceremony itself was short, sweet and all sealed with a big smooch! Nicky and Joe’s guests cheered and whooped and just like that -  we had a newly married couple.

After the ceremony, the happy couple and I (plus bridesmaid and top dress floofer Elle) went for a little walk around the Elmers Court gardens for some photos. How great are these two legends?

With thanks to Chelsea at Elmers Court, I was able to sneak access to an upper floor balcony for a full group shot. There are some great expressions in this picture! My personal favourite is the little guy behind the bridesmaids on the right. What a dude!

Now, there were a good few surprises at the wedding (more than I can even fit in this blog) but there was one that even Joe didn’t know about.
Nicky had hired the insanely talented Kieran Sutcliffe to perform as a singing waiter. It was awesome! Kieran fell over in the middle of the room dropping a tray of cutlery and making a big old racket. Every single guest looked on in horror, but then he jumped up, mic in hand, the music started playing and Kieran begun signing. What a voice! Joe even got involved and reluctantly (but excellently) sang My Girl with him. It went down a storm!

After dinner the guests mingled and had drinks and the kids had a little fun - Elmers Court has a playground at the bottom of the gardens.

And then, time for the first dance. But not just any first dance - they had arranged with Toby the DJ to coordinate indoor pyro and dry ice with their first dance and it was soooo cool! 

And then - PARTY TIME

Now usually, that would be that, but Nicky and Joe don’t mess around when it comes to entertaining their guests. They had arranged for one more completely epic surprise. Erin from Fireflow rocked up and, well…. I mean, just look!

All of that, and we still had to time to squeeze in 5 more minutes of photos.

That’s all for this little preview, 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.

Huge thanks to all at Elmers Court for taking such good care of us. Especially to Chelsea and her team for making sure the day went so smoothly. That woman runs a tight ship and I love it! 

Thanks too to all of Nicky and Joe’s lovely guests for making us so welcome.
