James & Rebecca

On Saturday 24th March I captured the #wedding of James and Rebecca at Manor By The Lake. There was no snow and the showers had passed over. Although it was cloudy the temperature was good and I was preparing for a lovely day. My day started with Rebecca and it was to see the bridesmaids make-up. I then went on a walk of the grounds and I was taken back by how much this Manor house had to offer. I then went back to see Rebecca have her make-up applied and I captured her dress and details. James was also getting ready at the manor and I met up with him and his groomsmen. Guests started to arrive and I went back to capture the moment Rebecca's dad saw her for the first time in her dress.

The wedding all went to plan and afterwards it's time for the pictures. First there were two lines to form a tunnel, James and Rebecca walked down and got covered in confetti. Welcome drinks got handed out and everybody started to mingle and chat. Phil Webb Photography arranged the personal and group pictures, the details within the wedding breakfast room looked amazing, lots of lighting creating a lovely mood.
After the wedding breakfast there were the speeches, all did a fantastic job and the best man delivered a surprise speech, he had claimed to be nervous but show no signs and it was packed with lots of funny stories and the odd gag. My evening started with getting some night shots of James and Rebecca with Phil the photographer. Inside the party room and there was a magic selfie mirror and a starlit led dance floor. With the cake in the middle of the dance floor that did not stop guests having a pre first dance, dance. For me that is always a sign of a good night ahead. After the first dance the dance floor filled again and danced the night away. Congratulations James and Becky Hardwick x

On Friday 3rd August I captured the #wedding of Craig and Catherine at St Andrew church and Coombe Lodge. It was a lovely day with he sun shining and temperatures were very warm. My day started at Coombe Lodge with Catherine and her bridesmaid's. Catherine was having her hair sorted while the beauty spot sorted out make-up for the bridesmaids. There was a lot of detail in the room to capture with the dresses, shoes, jewelry and a picture of Catherine's mum. Craig also was getting ready at Coombe Lodge and after capturing a few final prep shots I headed to St Andrews church.  A few guests arrived before Craig and his groomsmen arrived, there was only a little time to get a group shot of the groomsmen before more guests arrived. De Gournaywedding cars brought the brides maids and then Catherine and her dad. The bridal walk was lovely and Craig looked relived when the wedding started. During the wedding there were a couple of readings from guests and a lovely address from the mini…

On Sunday 29th July I captured the #wedding of Gareth and Helen at Coombe Lodge. The weather had been took a change from the recent heatwave and heavy showers had been forecast. But on my arrival at Coombe Lodge the weather seemed to be clearing and there was a chance we might get outside for some parts of the day. Gareth was first to arrive and he quickly made his way to his room so Helen could arrival and continue preparations.  Helen got her hair styled, her daughters took it in turns getting their hair sorted and another friend helped out with the girls make-up. I captured all of the dresses, Helen's shoes and jewelry. I then went to see Gareth and his step son, there were they were almost ready and applying finishing touches. Helen had got Gareth a love pocket watch as a gift and it was nice to see Gareth put it in his waist coat. Down stairs and guests started to arrive,
