We’re taking it back to last year. The 21st December to be exact, when Katie and Oliver married in the sweetest intimate ceremony with their very closest family members. After years of being together since their childhood, a home and their absolutely beautiful little boy Hector it was time for them to tie the knot.

Katie and Oliver wanted a beautiful sweet very intimate ceremony with just a handful of family who mean the world to them. It made the entire ceremony absolutely beautiful full of so much emotion.

Their ceremony took place at Thurrock Registry Office which is a local Registry local to their home town. The room was small and only big enough for a handful of people which was perfect for what they wanted. I feel like small intimate ceremonies is a thing of the future. They are seeming to be more and more popular and I am alllllll for it!

Katie wore the most beautiful gold sequin dress from Quiz which was the most perfect fit for a winters wedding. The sun was good to us this day too which meant it sparkled so perfectly. She also have the most beautiful bundle of flowers which complimented her look. Katie’s hair was done by her friend Danielle and she completed her make up look herself.

Before the ceremony the families of Katie and Oliver gathered in the entrance to the ceremony room. With Hector running wild being a cheeky little Chappy, he really was centre of attention for that moment. We entered the room and waiting for Katie to be walked in on the arm of her Dad. That exact moment was so bitter sweet and emotional. Like always, I always get emotional during ceremonies.

After vows, exchange of rings, lots of giggles, Hector joining in and some formal photographs we officially had Mr and Mrs Dingli. We all walked a short distance over to a local town park to take some photographs with a beautiful greenery backdrop. Hector again being centre of attention totally stole the show. The winters sun was a perfect hit and complimented the entire morning.

The ceremony had all the Christmas feels. It was sweet, emotional and full of family happiness. We spent 2 hours together and documented the most precious moments. Katie and Oliver spent the night away following the ceremony which was the perfect end to their first day of married life.
