Emma and James — Married, The Old Barn

The moment James and Emma told me they adopt pets from the SPCA, and can’t bring themselves to separate sibling cats, I was sold.  Totally taken in by their warm hearts and I knew we were going to be fast friends.  One of their dogs is called Petey Bean Jackson Spy Dog, our dog is called Gracie May Dovalaki Van De Pepper Jones.  One of their cats is called Foldy Little Shinny Black Kitten, one of our cats is called Sir Percival Fitzgerald The Great Jones.  If ever there was a match that was just meant to be, it was them and us.

I know this is about their wedding day,  which was also wonderful, so now instead of talking all about our pets, let me share these beautiful images with you!
