A day of bluebells, a woodland wedding & violin, now published!

I’ve been sitting on this for a few weeks now and am super excited to share with you the results of an April day, which has honestly been one of the highlights of 2021 so far.

Back in full-on lockdown celebrant Helen Noble asked if I’d be interested in being involved in a styled wedding photoshoot she was planning. I met Helen at a graveside a few years ago – me desperately hoping my violin bow wouldn’t fly off the string in the blowing gale, her leading an interment service with such warmth on a blustery chilly October day – and we hit it off!

Helen had a vision of organising a quintessential spring woodland wedding shoot to bring together her favourite suppliers, all of whom had in some way been affected by over 15 months of disrupted weddings. The theme for the shoot was contrast and harmony, set in gorgeous Surrey woodland.

The weather was perfect, with glorious sunshine dappling the clearing Helen had chosen for us to shoot in. The team involved photographer Jason Leaman and videographer Shona Nolan, a plethora of talented and enthusiastic suppliers and real-life couple Andy and Anita and we were all buzzing to be creating something together.

I could continue waxing lyrical about how much fun we had, describing it all in detail but I shall pass onto Helen to do this with her article How to find your wedding ceremony style, just published in the Celebrant Directory. Click the image below to discover more!

Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be posting a few more photos of me playing my violin on a carpet of leaves, surrounded by happy people and a carpet of bluebells, but for now I’ll leave you with just one more photo, a fantastic video, as well as a huge thank you to all involved, especially Jason and Shona who captured the day and vision superbly.

Jennifer is an incredible singer. We had her with Cafe Society to play at my 40th and it was everything I could dream off- they played beautiful music, and brought a very good vibe to the party. All the guests talked about how great they were, with a repertoire of very nice songs which we loved to listen to, but at the same time allowing us to keep the conversation going. I can’t recommend her enough.

Jenny sang beautifully at our wedding in August 2019! She moved many members of the congregation to tears with her amazing singing. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend her. Each time we meet up with friends and family that were there, they all comment on how amazing her singing was and how much they enjoyed it! She sang a Maori love song perfectly - commented the relatives from New Zealand! X

Jenny was the absolute highlight of our wedding ceremony. We picked some tricky songs and she had the whole audience joining in at the chorus. Luckily they didn't join at all points because it gave everyone a chance to hear her beautiful voice as well! I can't recommend highly enough.

Jenny was amazing from the moment I enquired about her playing the violin at our wedding ceremony. So quick to respond, helpful, friendly, flexible & professional, and was able to recommend songs and even learnt a new song for the exit music. I was so confident that she had everything under control which was invaluable and it was something on the day that I knew I just didn’t have to worry about. Jenny is so talented and it really added to the ceremony, I am so pleased that I found her! Thank you so so much!

Jenny sang at our wedding - her music set the tone and made for a truly special experience. She has a beautiful voice, is very easy to work with, and worked seamlessly with our (very exacting) venue to get everything just right. Thank you Jenny!
