REAL WEDDING - Emily and Ashley's Rustic DIY Leicestershire Wedding, Captured by Jenny Appleton Photography - dogs at weddingsEmily and Ashley were married on a sunny August day in 2019, and the lovely Jenny Appleton was there to capture it! 

Jenny tells us a little more about there day:

"The wedding was full of DIY and upcycled goodness, with gin bottles and Golden Syrup tins filled with flowers as centrepieces, loads of hay bails from the local farm, name places inked on wood slices that they made themselves, dried flower crowns, the bride's Uncles Land Rover as a wedding car. The bride had dried petals for a year for the confetti so it was all biodegradable and her and her Dad also replastered and painted the local tiny chapel as it was derelict and not in use anymore! Wooowww!"

So let's get straight to the beautiful images...
