Love & Cocktails in New Orleans

Saturday night just gone was my first of two weddings over the weekend and after an early morning and busy day shooting with horsies I was thankful that it was going to be an intimate and fairly low key affair.

Mimi and Jon have been together for a while and I can safely say we were all so happy to hear the news that they were getting married! They are both such lovely people and they make the cutest couple and I have to say I was secretly so pleased for Mimi who finally got her man. Though Jon loves her dearly, he was the kind of man who was never particularly keen on the idea of getting married, and I can understand. After all, it’s just a piece of paper and it doesn’t change your love for each other. But still…every girl dreams of her big day and I’m so glad Mimi got to have hers!

The beautiful Bride & Groom

Much of Mimi’s family live overseas so they decided to have an intimate and low key wedding over here and will have another ceremony over in the States early next year. The ceremony was reserved for just a few very close friends and family while the rest of us got to celebrate with them at a New Orleans themed cocktail reception at their beautiful little house in Ascot.

That cake was delicious!

Complete with genuine New Orleans Mardi Gras beads, jambalaya, crab dip and a delicious selection of fancy and exotic cheeses we sipped and nibbled our way through the night. It was such a cosy atmosphere and the smaller size of the rooms kept everyone together which was really nice, as it’s often so easy to get spread out and distracted. We all snuggled up in the dim lighting and there was just so much love in the room, I just wanted to squeeze the heck outta those gorgeous little love birds!

Dressed in cocktail party finery we all schmoozed the night away with the cocktails flowing and the old blues tunes the perfect backdrop. It was so lovely to be surrounded by such well-dressed people and the relaxed and intimate style of the celebration was just so right for Mimi and Jon. I’m so happy for them and I couldn’t help but have a big smile on my face the whole night! Congratulations Mr & Mrs Flynn!!
