Melissa & Michael's Winter Wedding

Despite the cold Melissa was more than happy to don her wellies for a little trip after the ceremony to Hockley Woods for some pictures with her husband Michael. The chill did not dampen their smiles at all, not sure anything could have!

Just over a week before Christmas, on a day where it snowed just a bit in the morning, Melissa and Michael got married at The Old Parish Rooms in Rayleigh. They even had a snowflake theme to their wedding too!
