The day started as usual with boys and girls getting ready. Boys had a few drinks and Andrew climbed on the rooftop of his Defender :)
Girls had a lot of giggles and Gemma’s mum maid awesome bridesmaids dresses. My jaw dropped when I was told that she makes those. Honestly, girls, if you are after beautiful dresses, speak to Gemma’s mum :)
The ceremony was beautiful, and the venue has a unique staircase which is used for wedding ceremonies and a lovely big group shot. After the ceremony, we did an elegant and relaxed wedding group photos.
This is one of those moments during the wedding where I have to be really on the ball and get through as quick as I can. I photograph all formals and have a second photographer who does all my candids wedding photos. You will be able to see them during the story as well.
We did a beautiful test shoot prior to the wedding. I always do photography run trough so that on the day we move faster and we know what we are doing, plus couples are always a lot more relaxed on the day :)
Venue setting is beautiful, and it gives you so so much to try out. It is one of those places where I could shoot all day long :)
There was a nice moment during the speeches when Gemma had a present from the guests. It was a beautiful stain-glass window. We got a bit emotional, but it is all part of the big day. Happiness, smiles, hugs, tears all of that was happening throughout the day, and it was such an honour to be the storyteller of the day.
Finished with some of my signature evening photos and I tried a few new things as well. The venue has an awesome big mirror, and I had an idea to create a film feel set where the couple would be fixing themselves up – applying lipstick and Andrew fixing his tie. I love those dark images and hope you will like my evening stuff as well.
Big congratulations to Gemma and Andrew. They are still away on honeymoon and I hope these images will bring back some great memories and sweeten their honeymoon as well :) Thank you all coming along to see images and feel free to leave congratulations messages in comments box.
