Mitch & Charis Wedding at Coombe Lodge

On Monday 4th February I captured the #wedding of Mitch and Charis at Coombe Lodge. The weather was clearing and it was set tube a lovely day. My day started with Charis and her bridesmaid's. There was a hair and make up station and this was even special as it was Charis's good friends helping her get ready. The dress was from A Class Brides and it looked truly stunning with one of the biggest trails I've seen in recent months. Mitch was also getting ready in another room and it was 
nice seeing him and his groomsmen sort out final preparations all the suits were provided by The Orginal Mobile Menswear. Sam the best man got everybodys button holes on and then all the guys went down stairs for a few pictures outside. Charis was now in her dress with mum helping do up the buttons at the back. Dad then walked in to see her for the first time followed by the bridesmaids. Down stairs and guests had taken there seats ready for the wedding ceremony to begin. ClaireDibble Harpist played the bridal party up the aisle and the wedding started. Everything went to plan and the harpist played during the signing and as the happy couple walked back up the aisle. 
Guest got a welcome drink and went outside into the gardens for a big group picture. Confetti cups were handed out to guests, Mitch and Charis walking down a tunnel and got covered, I'm looking forward to seeing the slow motion shot that I captured. Creating Diamonds Photography took the bride and groom around the grounds for a romantic shoot and I've captured some lovely walking shots.
I went inside the wedding breakfast room to capture the details and then went to see the guests who were relaxing listening to Claire Dibble. Guests got invited to take their seats in the wedding breakfast room and the bride and groom followed to a standing applause. The speeches were before the food and the guys did a good job. There were some extra waiters helping with food service and this was surprise entertainment. The Tip Top singing waiters broke out into song just after desert and had the whole room up singing and dancing. 
My evening started by getting special guest messages from family and friends. Parody Portraits were under the stairs drawing characters of guests, the reactions to the pictures were priceless. Mitch and Charis had their pictures drawn by Ian and then when into the party room to cut the cake and have their first dance. The dance floor soon filled up to the sounds of Paul Monroe, he had dance Hall and hip hop on the playlist. There was a selfie pod provided by Amys photography and a sweet cart. Congratulations Mitch and Charis, Thank you for letting me share your special day with you x

On Saturday 13th April I captured the #wedding of Karl and Amy at Clevedon Hall. It was the perfect day with the sun out, blue skies and not to windy. On my arrival getting shots of the grounds I came across the Clevedon Hall Herring and also a mother duck with about 15 baby ducks. I started my day with Amy and her bridesmaid's.
There was a make-up station and a hair station. Everybody was relaxed and enjoying the day. It wasn't long until Karl arrived with Amy's dad in his special car. The groomsmen were very early but with good reason, they were heading to the pub opposite Clevedon Hall for a couple of drinks. By now Amy was having her hair styled, I captured her dress along with the brides maids dresses. There was also a gift from Karl and a lovely note. Once Amy's hair was completed she popped open a bottle of bubbly and everybody had a big cheers shot. Afterwards I walked to the pub and watch the groomsmen walk back to Clevedon Hall, Karl got his button hole put o…

Matt & Katherine wedding at Eastwood Park

On Sunday 24th March I captured the #wedding of Matthew and Katherine at Eastwood Park. It was a glorious day with sun shine and blue sky. My day started with Katherine at her parents house for bridal preparations. There were hair and make-up stations and upon my arrival Katherine was having the finishing touches to her make-up.  I went upstairs to capture the dresses, shoes and jewelry, when I had finished Katherine was now on to her hair station.  Mum had a big box with a number of presents in from Matt. Just before I left for Eastwood Park I captured a cheers shot, but Katherine had a cup of tea with the brides maids each having a glass of Prosecco. At Eastwood Park and the first people I met were Matt and his best man, with top hats and really excited for the day ahead. The ushers and first set of brides maids arrived followed by lots of guests. Toastmaster John led the guests to the ceremony room ready for the arrival of Katherine, dad and her bridal party.
