Karl & Amy Wedding at Clevedon Hall

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 on and started to meet and greet guests. Amy's mum and a bridesmaid helped get Amy in her wedding dress before dad walked in and saw Amy for the first time. Then the bridal party walked up the aisle to meet Karl and get the wedding ceremony started. 
After the wedding everybody went outside where there was a mini receiving line before the big group photo. Jodie Hurd photography set up the remaining group shots before all the guests got time to catch up with Karl and Amy. I went to capture the wedding breakfast room in the brand new Orangery and it looked fabulous.
The room theme was different chocolates and the wedding cake looked amazing. While guests were called to sit down Amy and Karl went on a romantic shoot and I managed to capture some lovely footage. The speeches were after the wedding breakfast and all the speakers were great, but it was the father of the who was most surprising of all delivering a brilliant speech, I'm cracking up now thinking about the cards he had.
My evening started with getting special guest messages from family and friends, I really enjoyed the energy I got from the guests. ParodyPortraits were in the party room and it was great seeing actions throughout the evening from guests who had their character drawn by Ian. Kieron Clarkentertainment had provided a photobooth and evening entertainment. Kieron announced the first dance and it was a brilliant choreographed first dance that surprised all of the guests. My evening ended with everybody dancing on the dance floor and what what a lovely day it was. Congratulations Karl and Amy x

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. After the wedding guests…

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
