This day had been a very long-awaited one for Stacey and Ari and I was so pleased that the sun was shining for them as we left the office to catch up with the girls for prep at Cooling Castle Barn. I was wowed by Stacey’s dress as I came up the stairs where the girls were getting ready, and that was even before it was on! Stacey looked truly beautiful as she made her way down the aisle to see her husband-to-be.
The ceremony went smoothly and, thanks to the beautiful weather outside, Stacey and Ari headed to the patio with their family and friends.
The couple was such good fun, as was their wedding party. Not to mention the couple’s children were both an absolute delight – I adore their group shots with their little lady giggling away!
The speeches were fab, the best of which was a surprise one from the Junior Best Man Leon. We left the couple and family and friends to dance the night away under the twinkly lights of Cooling Castle Barn. A wonderful day and well worth the wait!

Wishing you all the best for a wonderful life together Stacey and Ari, thank you for having us along!

Stacey was kind enough to send us a lovely message…

“Hi, Louisa and Duncan,
Thank you both so much for firstly the fantastic photos, but secondly for being such an amazing couple at our wedding. So many of our guests commented on how great you both were and your personalities really shone through to make the day even better. You were relaxed and enjoyed some friendly banter which we all absolutely loved and we could not be more grateful to you both.
All our love,
Mr and Mrs Burbridge!”
