A Small Intimate Wedding – Lincoln – Jon & Claire
Small intimate weddings with a strong focus on close family & friends are one of my favourites to shoot. You really get to meet everyone, and be part of a couples day. Jon & Claire’s Lincoln Wedding really didn’t disappoint. Recently, I posted a 2 part blog post for Mark & Caroline’s destination wedding (Day 1 and Day 2). I was therefore thrilled, when Jon (Caroline’s brother) & his fiancee Claire asked me to also capture their wedding. I totally jumped at the chance to spend more time with their family & friends in Lincoln.
Lincoln Wedding – Jon & Claire
Jon & Claire are originally from Lancaster, but relocated to Lincoln for Jon’s work. The historic city of Lincoln is a location that holds a special place in their hearts. I can see why totally falling in love with the cobbled streets, small shops, and buzzing atmosphere. Before leaving to make new memories in Oxfordshire, they decided they wanted to get married there. Deciding only at the beginning of the year, they organised what I consider to be an amazing intimate wedding in such a short space of time. Choosing, The Tower Hotel, located in the Cathedral quarter of Lincoln, proved to be the perfect venue for their wedding day.
Lincoln Wedding – A First Look
First Looks, are possibly one of my favourite moments in a wedding. Jon & Claire opted to have one on their wedding day. Unlike the traditional walk down the aisle when everyone is watching, the intimacy of the moment allows for some truly emotional photographs. It is an experience that on such a busy day was really just about Jon & Claire as a couple.
Small, Intimate Wedding with Close Family & Friends
I’m lucky enough to have spent time with both Jon & Claire’s respective families in the past. If there is one thing I know, it is how important family is to them. When talking to Jon & Claire about their wedding it was no surprise when they told me they had planned a small intimate wedding with family & friends, with a larger celebration in the future.
They achieved the perfect intimate wedding in my eyes. From all the wedding guests walking to & from the ceremony together through the streets of Lincoln. To the exquisite family meal around a stunning table filled with candles, flowers, and lots and lots of laughter. They nailed it, I hope you’ll agree.
Jon, Claire and of course who can forget the star of the day, your dog Jeff. I wish you all the happiness for your future adventures in Oxfordshire. It was a pleasure to be part of your day. Enjoy your photographs.
