Ben & Natalie

On Friday 18th May I captured the #wedding of Ben and Natalie at Tracy Park. It was a glorious day with sunshine and rather warm temperatures. My day started with Natalie at her parents house, a hair station in one room and make-up in another. Natalie was busy having her hair styled and after capturing a few shots I decided to get all the dresses together, shoes and jewelry. Natalie's flowers arrived and looked fab, all the flower girls had a necklace and seeing Natalie but on her daughters was a lovely moment. Natalie sorted out her sons hair and we all went into the garden for a few shots as everybody was wearing personalised clothing. It was also Natalie's birthday so she popped open a bottle of bubbly and everybody had a big cheers shot.
When I arrived at Tracy Park I checked out the ceremony room that had chair covers provided by Enchanted Wedding, Events & Parties Bristol. I then met Ben with the button wholes and after they were put on captured a shot of him and his best man along with a walking shot. Guests started to arrive and not long after a limo with all the bridal party arrived. Guests then took their seats as Natalie arrived in a white Jaguar. There was a choir performing as the bridal party walked up the aisle, they also sang through the signing of the register and the walk out.
The afternoon started with a confetti shot and a dove release, guests got a welcome drink and the children had a big white bouncy castle to play on. Golf buggies arrived and took Ben and Natalie to a few special places on the golf course. Barry the photographer captured some personal shots and I captured a few walking shots. When we got back I went to the wedding breakfast room to capture the detail shots. Just before the wedding breakfast there was just enough time to capture a bouquet toss caught by a bridesmaid.
I was invited to sit in the wedding breakfast and had a lovely 3 course meal that I am very thankful for. There was a surprise between the main and desert when one of the waiters dropped lots of cutlery, he got up from the floor and had a microphone. He started to sing and kick start a party for half an hour with a number of different song and lots of dancing guests. After the speeches I captured a lovely family walk on hole 18, with mums help got many special guest messages.

At 7pm guests were called to the party room where there was a sweet table and a small wedding cake but a gigantic tower of Krispy Kreme donuts. After the cake cut there was the first dance and the father of the bride took to the dance floor to have a dance with Natalie. The party had a surprise Elvis act who sang a number of hits to a packed dance floor. My evening ended in spectacular style with a fireworks display. Congratulations Ben and Natalie Clark x

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.

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…
