Francesca & Joel’s DIY Wedding (Part 1)


Hi Simon,

Thank you so SO much! These are incredible!! We love them!!!
Literally everyone we've shown has said "your photographer is amazing" - so there.
Thank you so much for helping us to remember the day in all its crazy glory 
and enabling us to share it with people who couldn't make it. And those rain shots!

Francesca & Joel

What is a DIY wedding? Well Francesca & Joel’s personifies DIY in many areas. To the casual browser, it may appear no different to any other church & marquee wedding, but dig deeper and you would discover it was so much more than that.

At most weddings, everything is bought and brought in, – outsourced. Everything including; flowers, cake, catering, cars, etc, but Francesca & Joel did things slightly differently and ‘insourced’ pretty much everything other than the marquee and the caterers for the meal.

Folks traveled from all over the world to attend, but mainly from around the UK and Australia for this very laid back of days infusing that laid back Aussie style with some British tradition.
The fact that Joel works in the festival industry may have played more than a small part to the feel, vibe & styling.

So following on from the prep stage of the day, it was off to St Oswald’s church in Sowerby near Thirsk for the ceremony conducted by Joel’s father, David.

This was followed by a champagne, strawberry and macaron reception in the glorious sunshine outside church before moving on to Francesca’s mothers house, old mill and marquee.
