Gemma and Jake’s Celestial Themed East Yorkshire Barn Wedding by Inspire Photos

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are all well and happy and have enjoyed a good weekend? Mine was pretty chilled, just what I needed, as I seem to have quite a few busy weekends coming up over the next couple of months. Saturday involved 14 8 year olds and a karaoke party, which wasn’t particularly chilled! But it was lots of fun! Then Saturday night my best friend came round, we had a Chinese and stayed up late drinking wine and putting the world to rights! Perfect! This week it is onwards and upwards, lots to do and my May wedding to focus on and get the last bits prepped and planned! What about you? What is on your wedding planning list? On with today’s wedding and it’s the turn of Gemma and Jake and their East Yorkshire Barn Wedding. I just love the celestial theme of this wedding, the barn decoration is just gorgeous, as for Gemma’s dress, she looks amazing, totally unique and full of style! Big thanks to unity bridal  for the submission and to inspire photos for the photos.
