It was a wedding I'd been looking forward to a very long time for a number of reasons. First off, I loved that Jen and Dom are both photography lovers, and that they were having a very vintage themed wedding at Jen's local family church, not far from where Mrs Beanphoto and I had our own wedding reception in the beautiful Arnside and Silverdale "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty". The wedding date was our own anniversary too (not actually our wedding anniversary - we celebrated a different anniversary for 25 years before getting married, and some habits just stick!). It was also an occasion when Mrs Beanphoto and myself would both be working the same wedding. As one half of Itsy Bitsy Vintage, she provides the most beautiful vintage china hire and styling service - all highly recommended - check it out!!
The day began somewhat overcast, but still charming, at the very lovely No.43 boutique B&B on Arnside seafront.
Jen, her daughter and girlfriends were having a fine old time getting ready, doing hair and make up and listening to music played on Jen's phone in the beautiful open and light rooms of No.43...
