James & Juris's Real Wedding

James & Juris's Real Wedding - The Civil Ceremony

The Civil Ceremony

Juris and James decided to keep their civil ceremony short and simple – they had no readings or hymns. The couple decided not to have a conventional aisle, and instead entered at the same time from opposite ends of the room.

They entered to a classical version of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’. There was some tension in the run up to the ceremony as Juris’s mother was stuck in traffic and they were unsure that she’d make the ceremony. Fortunately she did, with just seconds to spare!

The couple exchanged rings from Bvlgari and Alba Rose, before heading out on to the terrace for the champagne reception, where some tears of joy were shed.

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds headed to Hyde Park for their post-wedding photographs. It was here they shared their first ever public kiss, made even more special as they were now married.
