A group of leading local businesses has teamed up with a well-known Warwickshire photographer to recreate a couple’s wedding day after their original set of photographs reduced them to tears.

Happy times

Luckily for the new Mr and Mrs Geary, Jems Photography heard about their plight and offered them a fantastic GraphiStudio storybook album package and reshoot free of charge. To recreate the day as realistically as possible, Jems’s owner, John Fox, enlisted the support of his close network of wedding suppliers, including Salter’s menswear store from Rugby, Black Orchid florists and Dunchurch Park Hotel. And as for the pictures? Well – no blurry shots, no random compositions and a group shot of the groom’s mum and dad. “We’ve finally got the wedding pictures we wanted,” says Anneka. “We are on cloud nine and are so grateful to Jems Photography and all those who helped us to relive our special day – it’s great to see local suppliers working so well together and with such kindness.”
