Mark & Alexandra

On Friday 4th May I captured the #wedding of Mark and Alexandraat De Vere Tortworth Court. The weather was finally starting to look good after many weeks of unpredictable cold and wet spells. I started my day with Alex and her bridesmaid's to capture hair and make-up along with details shots of the dress and shoes. Whilst capturing preparations staff from Tortworth court surprised Alex with a bottle of Prosecco and 5 glasses, I watched the bottle get popped open and the bridal party enjoyed a cheers shot. I then awaited Marks arrival but he was already in site and in the bar with his groomsmen men. I helped with the button holes and got a few shots of Mark and his grooms men together. By now guests had started to arrive, I went back to Alex to see the final bits of preparation before capturing her dad see her for the first time. Guests started to take there seats and mark with his best man patiently awaited Alex's arrival at the top of the aisle. The brides maids walked up followed by stunning Alex and her dad. The wedding went really well and there was a lovely reading from a friend.

After the wedding guests went into the gardens and Steve Bates Photographer set up a confetti shot followed by the group shots. Guest got a welcome drink and enjoyed the great weather. Mark and Alex had some personal shots before I went to the Orangery to capture detail shots of a Las Vegas themed room. Playing cards as place names and hotels as table name. A lot of effort had go into the plans and it looked fabulous. The speeches were before the wedding breakfast and each speaker delivered well.

After the wedding breakfast I started by getting a range of guest messages, some messages had a lot of energy and a couple nailed a rap impressive. A magician was mesmerising guest with a selection of tricks before shocking Alex with a signed card in a bottle. Guests started to arrive to the evening party and the cake cut and first dance shortly followed. Hotshots Entertainment got the party started after with a number of Indie tracks. My evening ended filming a packed dance floor with lots of different dance moves from guests. Congratulations Mark and Alex 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. 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…
