[dropcap color=”” boxed=”no” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]J[/dropcap]ust one of many magic moments from Lin and Matthew’s Gosfield Hall wedding. We were so very lucky with the weather, a perfect English summer’s day which gave us this sublime moment later on in the evening. An English summer’s day, a quintessentially English wedding venue which was a backdrop for Chinese and American families with elements from both making up the day. It was also a great opportunity for Lin show off her several dress styles and her impressive singing skills. But more of that to follow soon …!
[dropcap color=”” class=”” id=””]I[/dropcap]f you had told me at the beginning of the day at Hannah and James’s wedding at Missenden Abbey that we were going to get such an incredible sky with some blazing sunshine, I’m not sure I would have believed you. But I was very glad that we did! It was a grey and drizzly start to the day, and although the forecast promised things would dry up, it didn’t look promising, the rain looked liked it had settled in. Happy to say it was just mother nature keeping us on our toes again.
This is one of my favourite images from the day and plenty more to follow soon.
[dropcap]S[/dropcap]corching hot Sunday morning was a great opportunity for Susan and James’s engagement photography session on the South Bank in London, overlooking the Houses of Parliament. The great weather did bring out the tourists as well which meant we had to box clever to try and avoid getting swept away by them all – and huge credit to both Susan and James for being completely unphased by having so many onlookers!
What an incredible day! Chrissy and Luke are two of the loveliest people you are ever likely to meet. The whole day was a roller coaster of emotions, roaring with laughter one minute, wiping tears away the next. It’s what a wedding should be! Minterne House was a stunning backdrop for their wedding and a huge thanks go to the whole team there who made they day seem effortless.
Christina’s day started with the girls getting pampered with hair and make-up with a glass or two of champagne. Luke’s day started slightly less glamorously as he had to get a hair-dryer out to dry his wedding speech that the cat had pee’d on. That and helping his usher look for his cufflink that he had lost out of the window (long story). I haven’t laughed so much at a wedding for a long time and apologies to Luke if it was at his expense (sorry Luke!). Testament to them both though, the ceremony was also one of the most emotional I’ve witnessed, not a dry eye in the house.
Here are a few of my favourite images from the day.
It was a blustery ol’ day for Sarah & Will’s Suffolk farm wedding. The weather certainly kept us on our toes, gloriously sunny one minute, raining the next. Thankfully not enough to dent the enjoyment of a fantastic wedding. The marriage itself was held at the beautiful and ancient Church of St Michael’s in Framlingham. And then back to Sarah’s parent’s farm for the wedding reception (you can see the church spire from the farm). The marquee was set up on the edge of a field full of bright yellow rape making for an incredible backdrop. There were a few nervous weeks leading up to the wedding as it looked like the rape’s flowers might not be in bloom in time for the big day. Thankfully, they were just right – bright enough to make an impression but not potent enough to kick off everyone’s hay fever!
Not only did the weather keep us on our toes but so too did Sarah and Will’s first dance – a full routine which no one was expecting, pretty spectacular. Here are a few of my favourite images from the day.
