Fran and Gideon- Lillibrooke Manor
I hadn't photographed a Jewish wedding before so I was super excited when I was asked to capture Fran and Gideons special day !
They were married at Lillibrook Manor; a beautiful grade II listed barn in the Thames valley. It was the perfect setting for their relaxed wedding. Fran looked beautiful in her Sottero and Midgley beaded dress with tule skirt. Gideon wore a blue suit by DKNY.
There were so many incredible moments at this wedding. The heightened emotions during the ceremony continued into the amazing Israeli dancing and the speeches. I loved the surprise song that Gideon wrote and performed for Fran. Fran and the guests watched mesmerised as Gideon and his groomsmen rocked the stage. This was shortly followed by the first dance. The songs 'Cant help falling in love with you' and 'Stand By Me' were performed by Gideon's sister and cousin both of which had the most beautiful voices. Everyone stood enthralled as this talented family took to the stage; the perfect accompaniment to Fran and Gideons's first dance. I was left with a feeling of wow as one incredible moment unfolded into the next.
Seven years ago their journey began when Fran and Gideon met at a friends halloween party. Ironically Gideon was dressed up as a husband and Fran was dressed up as a Leopard! Gideon you no longer have to dress up as a husband anymore!
Warmest wishes to a very special couple! Love Rx
