ULTIMATE NO FUSS WEDDING WHICH THE COUPLE PLANNED IN JUST 6 WEEKS!!
Lyndsey and Bren got married last summer at the lovely Priory Hall, which is a beautiful grade 2 listed building in Dudley. They only had a handful of guests for the ceremony itself and then surprised the rest of their family and friends at their wedding reception, which was disguised as Lyndsey’s 30th Birthday Party. It was such a happy day and a real tear jerker!
This wedding was also super special to me as I’ve been friends with Lyndsey for what seems like forever – just check out this picture of us when we were tiny below (obviously I’m the Wicked Witch of the West.) So when she invited me to her 30th Birthday I was gutted to tell her that I couldn’t make it. Lyndsey then informed me that the party was actually a rouse and she was actually planning on marrying Bren on the morning of the party which was just in 6 weeks time!!
I loved the idea of a secret wedding and I knew I just had to be there! Luckily the stars aligned and the booking I had booked in was a late afternoon and Lyndsey & Bren were getting married so early in the morning that it meant I could actually capture both, and I’m so glad I did. Although I couldn’t go to the after party, it was lovely to see my friend tie the knot.
I met the couple at the registry office and there was a buzz of excitement. All the guests (all 13 of them) were so genuinely happy for the pair and we all had such a giggle thinking about how the party guests would react when Lyndsey and Bren rocked up in their wedding outfits. Bren and their son Bobby looked so cute in their matching outfits and Lyndsey looked beautiful, I loved that Lyndsey chose to rock her glasses.
The ceremony was an intimate service in the registry office, they had two beautiful readings from friends and family. It was so emotional and even I was in tears while Lyndsey’s grandads read ‘these hands’ it was such a tear jerker and Bobby was so adorable at the ring holder. Everyone then headed outside for confetti and I whisked the couple away for some quick photos in the park next to Priory Hall.
Lyndsey and Bren’s wedding was so laid back and just the happiest occasion. Here’s their awesome wedding!
