Sailing Club, London Bus & Jazz Wedding


Jon & Fiona had their evening celebrations in a sailing club and were rewarded with the most beautiful evening sky, perfect for portraits on the sailing club slipway.


Fiona's day started with bridal prep in a local hotel. Her room was wonderfully spacious, light and airy which really helped to set her up for the most fabulous of weddings.


Fiona was given away by her father at the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Portsmouth.


Her Flower Girl never put a foot wrong and her bridesmaids were stunning.


The Cathedral's architecture is magnificent and imposing, a total contrast to the ceremony itself which was intimate and friendly.


Just before the ceremony started the weather was appalling with thoroughly unpleasant rain. By the time Jon & Fiona were married you would never have known the weather had been so bad, it was bright sunshine and calm winds.


Then it was off in their car for their Reception meal...


...and speeches.


Then it was off in the big red London bus to the sailing club for their evening celebrations.


It was a fabulous evening and perfect for some evening sky portraits on the slipway...


...they're such a lovely couple it was so nice the weather was perfect for them.


...and their sense of playfulness permeated the whole day...here's a moment re-enacted from a famous film.


...and here's a lady absolutely determined to catch the bride's bouquet.


At the sailing club, the couple had booked a fabulous jazz quartet...the music was absolutely brilliant...


...until the girls decided they wanted to play.


Eventually the bride was coaxed away from the double bass and Jon & Fiona took to the dance floor as man and wife for the first time.


They are a lovely couple who had a fabulous wedding full of fun and blessed with perfect weather. Congratulations Jon & Fiona, we wish you a very happy and long life together.
