My son pronounces us Mr and Mrs

Updated: Mar 12, 2020


When I received the message that my services would be required on 25th November 2017 for a good friend’s wedding, a year in advance I was over joyed to be asked, as i had just done the photography for her sister’s wedding. My work must be ok (blowing my own trumpet I know)

There is a lot of pressure on the photographer when shooting a wedding, never mind a friend’s wedding, but preparation is the key and finding out the little details what a bride and groom like and don't like helps make sure you capture the day perfectly for them.

So it was a rocky start to the week with the weather, plenty of rain and frost to be seen, but we were heading into winter now and the festive season, so it was expected. On the day of the wedding he shone bright, there was still a chill in the air but the big yellow man in the sky put on his hat for the big day.

I arrived at the location, grabbing my equipment I walked into the Punch Bowl, Thorne, the cleaners and staff were hard at it getting everything ready and making the room look beautiful and inviting for the ceremony. But what greeted me was what the bride was wanting,

The Stairs and Entrance all decorated festively, I knew the bride would be happy, it looked lovely.

Upstairs was my next port of call, to where the bridal party were getting ready, drinks flowing, the makeup artist painting faces and the hairdresser surrounded by grips, hairspray, and hair irons, a typical wedding morning.

The bride calm as anything, smiling all the way, as everyone else around her were frantically getting ready, making sure they were ready on time.

I heard the Groom and his boys had arrived, so it was off downstairs for me leaving the bridesmaids to get ready in peace away from the camera.

Here come the boys looking dapper, the groom slightly nervous I think, a quick photo in the library before heading to the bar to calm those nerves.

I head back upstairs where the bridesmaids were all glammed up looking beautiful in purple, but before you see them all dolled up, time for a quick choccy voddy shot maybe ??
