Andrew & Catherine Wedding at Old Down Manor

On Friday 30th November I captured the #wedding of Andrew and Catherine at Old Down Manor. It was a mild day with blue skies all around. The Christmas trees were up inside the manor house with some love led decorations on the banister. My day started with Catherine and her 2 brides maids. There was a hair and make up station, Catherine was having the finishing touches to her hair while one bridesmaid maid had make up, the other bridesmaid helped me arrange the dresses,  shoes, flowers and jewelry. It was a very relaxed morning with presents received and given out by Catherine and there was a bottle of bubbly opened and enjoyed. Andrew arrived and once his best men arrived he put in everybody's button holes. Guests also started to arrive and were greeted by Andrew.

I went back to Catherine to see the final stages of preparations with her wedding dress and then her son come in to see her for the first time before escorting her downstairs to see the registrars. While Andrew saw the registrars guest took their seats in the wedding ceremony room. Once Andrew was finished, Catherine made her way down the stairs and up the isle to officially start the wedding. 
After the wedding guests made their way outside so West 70 photography could get a big group picture followed by the small groups. As the weather was still OK Andrew and Catherine set of with myself and Adam to capture some romantic shots. Afterwards I captured the wedding breakfast room and all the lovely decorations. The wedding cake looked amazing and the flower arrangements were fantastic. Guests started to take their seats and the speeches were before the wedding breakfast and after the wedding breakfast there was the cutting of the cake.
My evening started by getting special guest messages from family and friends with the help of the bridesmaid's. Hotshots Entertainment provided a photo booth for guests to enjoy. It was used a lot and I managed to capture Andrew and Catherine use it. Evening guests started to arrive and it wasn't long until Cadence Entertainment introduced the first dance. The party was in full flow and that brought an end to a very special wedding, congratulations Andrew and Catherine x

This was going to be a very special day for me having captured both James sisters and his cousins weddings over recent years. It was a cloudy day with a nice sea breeze in the air, my day started with Claire up in the bridal room. She was busy having her hair styled, her dress was hanging up on the wardrobe and her shoes were close by for detail shots. Claire had a few friends also getting ready with her and they were to help out with anything that needed doing.
Once Claire's hair was sorted Make-up by Sally applied her make up. I had a text from James letting me know he was 5 mins away and he arrived with a friend in a range rover. By now the wedding ceremony was set up ready and I have to mention the beautiful flower arrangements all around the room. The wedding rings were also in a box with a single white rose in. James got his button hole in and started to greet guests as they arrived. Back wi…
