Hi all and welcome to my latest blog!
The last few months have been SO busy and I am behind with my blogging. This is my last blog of 2017, but don’t worry as I have so much planned for 2018, including some exciting interviews and insights into other parts of the wedding industry. For my webpage, I am currently developing my bio so I hope you’ll all love reading about how I became a wedding and portrait photographer, so stay tuned and I guarantee there is going to be some great content to share with you all.
Warning! There may be some old photos of me included, so it will be worth your while having a look, if only to laugh at the fashion in the 70’s and 80’s.
Today’s blog is all about a wonderful couple called Laura and Gareth. I met Laura when she was a guest at another wedding I captured back in 2016. I was fortunate to be sitting on the same table during the meal and to say there was laughing is an understatement; I love to have a giggle with the guests at ceremonies, it’s what weddings are all about, that joyous celebration with friends and family. It wasn’t long after, that I was pleased to be asked by Laura and Gareth to capture their own wedding day in August 2017.
Earlier in the year I met up with Laura and Gareth to capture their pre-wedding photos, and we had such fun walking around capturing some great moments. Fast forward to the wedding day itself at the wonderful Prested Hall in Essex where I have worked before. Prested Hall itself is stunning and along with its gorgeous setting, the organisational aspect is second to none. Kathryn the wedding co-ordinator was always in full control of the day and makes everything run so smoothly.
The sun was beaming and the heat was creeping up, but there was a lovely breeze and a relaxed mood throughout the day, exactly what Laura and Gareth had wished for so all their guests would enjoy their celebration, (there was even beer pong organised for later that afternoon, into the evening!).
Laura looked simply stunning as she walked down the aisle and everyone had a smile on their face as she approached a rather dapper, but nervous looking Gareth. With the weather on side for the entire day, and the gorgeous sunset in the evening there was plenty of opportunity to capture some beautiful photos. I have just received their photo choices for their wedding album, and I can’t wait to start creating this in early 2018!
It was a complete pleasure to capture Laura and Gareth’s special day which was filled with smiles and laughter and seemed to go in a flash (sorry - photographers pun) It was not long until all the guests were busting some moves out on the dance floor before the day drew to a fantastic end.
I have to give a special mention to Simon Rogers Photography for helping me out on this wedding. Thanks Simon, it was great to work with you.
And finally, before I present the photo sneak peek, I want to wish all my customers and followers a very happy new year, and if you have upcoming nuptials, drop me a line for an informal chat, and I hope one day to capture your wedding and help make it as special as Laura and Gareth’s.
Thanks for your support, and I shall see you all in 2018.
So without further ado here is Laura and Gareth’s sneak peek.
