WINTER RELAXED WEDDING AT ARCHIVE IN RAMSGATE – JUSTIN AND JO
Justin and Jo got married at the gorgeous Archive, Ramsgate.
The excitement before the wedding
Jo got ready at home with all of the girls. She wore a River Island dress, and looked really simply stunning. She travelled to the ceremony by one of London's finest black taxis.
The ceremony took place inside a beautiful room at Aberdeen House. The ceremony area was really cosy, which was so perfect, because it was an intimate wedding. The ceremony began with Jo's daughters playing a ukulele and singing, and finished with a sweeping first kiss. It was a gorgeous ceremony, full of nervous giggles and so much love.
After the ceremony, we did portraits in the garden, which is such a great time for the newly married couple to have some time to let it sink in. Then we travelled to the reception, which was the perfect time for me to get candid photos. I got some really special candid photos as they enjoyed the afternoon. The weather was freezing, but that didn’t put a dampener on moods.
Justin and Jo chose to have their wedding at Archive because it overlooks Ramsgate Harbour, and it’s near their home. Archive is a modern venue, and it’s got such a understated vibe, especially on the dancefloor when the the lights go down.
For the reception, the couple had organised live music and our DJ - Steven for their guests, and everyone had so much fun – FIELD EMPTY. Everyone was then called in for food, which was a buffet. It was absolutely delicious. They had cake cutting after the meal, which was so emotional –
After the speeches, everyone got straight on the dancefloor, and the party was packed from the moment the first dance finished until the very last song. Our DJ kept everyone entertained all evening.
The evening ended with a ‘last dance’, which was incredible. The whole wedding was so romantic, from the bride’s awesome dress to the last dance. One of the most memorable parts of the wedding was the dancing, because everyone got involved. The wedding cake was also a talking point of the wedding – as Jo's daughter had made it. The stand the cake stood on was also a talking point as it had been in Justin's family for a number of years.
We loved this last minute wedding so much. If you’re getting married and looking for a DJ and wedding photographer, get in touch. Here are the photos!
