Jo & Tony {wedding festival}

doc-jo-nicduncan-001

The first thing I must mention about this incredible wedding is that Tony Docherty and Jo Smith are two of our closest friends. We love these guys so much. Doc was actually our best man when we got married a few months ago.

Their wedding was always going to be amazing...chaotic, but amazing. When I think Doc, I think Chaos. For the past year, since he proposed to Jo (actually that's another story...ever the gentleman, Doc asked her father who immediately cracked the champagne and congratulated Jo, not realizing that this was the first she knew of it!), her family have referred to him as her Fiasco rather than her fiancé. It's perfect :-)

Doc and Jo are both involved in the arts; Doc as a fine art woodworker and Jo as a festival director/arts administrator, and their big day was as much a community arts festival as it was a wedding. Jo had spent a lot of time in China and decided to begin the day with an adaption of a Chinese wedding custom. As a few of the girls gathered for breakfast, Tony and his support team arrived to convince Jo's mother to allow the nuptials to proceed. Less than serious, and at times outrageous, negotiations took place and the final stage was Tony having to correctly identify Jo's hand amongst all the hands of her friends. The next hour or so was spent with Jo trying to decide what she would wear :-)

The ceremony was truly a celebration of Jo and Doc, with friends and family performing songs and poems and these gifts of creativity continued into the night. It rained and it poured. If the sun had shone it would have been an entirely different experience, but not necessarily a better one. It was perfect just the way it was.
