Bridal Preparation

This warm May wedding day started for me at the bride’s house. It was a busy scene with bridesmaids, flower girls and her Nan all getting ready with her. So while they got used to me being around I began by photographing the details like her beautiful bouquet. The bride chose purples and lilacs for her theme and her flowers were roses, calla lilies and lisianthus. The bouquet was interspersed with diamante pins.

Then it was on to candids of everyone getting dressed.

And of course photos of the bride having the finishing touches done to her hair and make up by Michelle.

The bride was super organised and the bridesmaids wore white gloves as they helped her into her dress and did up all of the tiny buttons on her dress.

Meanwhile my second photographer was with the groom and his groomsmen as they got ready.

St Andrew’s Church

The church in frimley was chosen because of it’s special significance to the family; the groom’s parents were married here, as well as his sister and her husband.

The guests stood and relaxed in the sunshine before going into the church.

Once all of the guests were inside the bridal party arrived.

The Wedding Ceremony

The bride was walked down the aisle by her uncle

Following the ceremony, we took some confetti shots and group photos by the lych gate. Then it was time to go to frimley Hall for the wedding reception. But not before the couple had re-enacted Titanic in their 1930’s style Jaguar convertible wedding car…

The Reception at Frimley Hall

During the drinks reception on the terrace, we took the couple to the honeymoon suite for a few bridal portraits.

Then it was back outside for group photos in front of the rhododendrons, followed by some couple portraits.

The Wedding Breakfast

The wedding breakfast was held in the Frimley Suite. The couple surprised guests with their own personalised magazine. The back cover was the wedding menu and inside there were features on everything from the wedding party to the couple’s cats.

Once speeches were completed after the wedding breakfast, everyone went outside to enjoy the garden in the evening sunshine. And they were joined by evening guests. Then finally it was time for the evening party to begin with cake cutting and the first dance.

Lastly we took the couple outside for five minutes for some creative evening photographs before we left them to party the night away.
