I first met Jaclyn when she was her sister’s Bridesmaid at Clare & Malky’s wedding – the very first one I shot when I had no idea what I was doing!
It was great being asked again to then shoot Jaclyn & Ryans wedding at Hopetoun House. It was a superb day with the perfect mix of romance and party vibes… the band ‘Stax of Motown‘ were phenomenal, as you can see the dance floor was rocking!
Tell us about your day?
We had the best day ever…! It’s sounds cliche but from start to finish, we couldn’t fault it. It was so exciting to see all of our ideas come together and surrounded by our friends and family – we couldn’t ask for any more.
Where did you find inspiration for your wedding?
We have attended so many weddings recently so we were grateful to be able to pick the best bits of weddings and create our own ideas. Our flowers theme was – “Elton John’s living room” and Planet Flowers helped create that!!! Our aim was that we wanted our wedding to be so good we’d love to be a guest at it- we definitely created that.
Why did you choose your wedding venue?
We only looked at 3 venues, and by far Hopetoun blew us away. We loved that everything could be held at the one venue and the variety of the ballroom and stables coupled with the acres of beautiful grounds – it really wasn’t a hard decision!!!
Why did to choose to use a wedding videographer?
Well, Little Love’s first ever film was my sister’s wedding, we were so impressed that booking the video was the simplest decision of all!
Any tips for future Brides and Grooms?
Do everything in the run up to ensure that your big day is relaxing and fun, your friends and family feed off your happiness and that’s the best feeling. And of course soak up your day…
