Bruce and Joanne @ Highfield Park

Our 3rd and last wedding last weekend was on Saturday when we joined Bruce and Jo for there wedding in Highfield Park.  We met Bruce last year but only recently met Jo, we were pleased that we hit it off with Jo straight away which made their wedding a joy to be part of.

We started our day at Jo’s parents house in Dummer where no only did we photograph some great preparation shots we also got to meet Dot (Jo’s lovely Grandma) and her parents but also the 3 Crazy Bridesmaids, and yes I mean crazy!!!  Little did I know that they would get even crazier with time 🙂

We then drove to the beautiful Ellisfield church for a service led by an ex RAF chaplain which was lovely and following that we has a few brief photos outside the church before heading off to Highfield Park. Once there we had a couple of hours on the lawns drinking bubbly and taking pictures, well taking piccies for us whilst they drank the bubbly 🙂  we then had a little while with Bruce and Jo for their portraits before heading into the wedding breakfast.

After dinner we had another hour or so in the sun with the 3 naughty bridesmaids before heading on in to dance the night away.

Thanks guys and see you soon

Ray and Laura @ Marwell Hall

On Friday we joined Ray and Laura for our second wedding of the weekend at Marwell Zoo which was a “Roaring success”  and great fun to be part of, We started our day with Laura and the girls back at her mums house before heading off to Marwell to meet Ray and the boys.  Ray arrived by train looking very nervous unlike Laura who arrived in a beautiful Rolls Royce driven by our good friend Tony of Apollo Carriages, she look relaxed and stunning.

After a lovely ceremony Laura was surprised thanks to her friend Wendy with a Guard of Honor made up of children from teh first year she taught which was a very emotional moment for all of us and a little too much for Laura who wept uncontrollably for a few moments.

After a few brief showers we headed into the gardens for some lovely family shots and then off to feed the Giraffes although Sue headed off to watch  Penny (the chief bridemaid)  feed the lamas, Laura and Ray had presented her with this as a gift because it was also her 5th wedding anniversary on Friday.

This was followed by a wonderful wedding breakfast and great heartfelt speeches.

We then went for a twilight stroll around the park before heading back to the gardens for a fun filled evening full of games on the lawn and dancing.

Thanks guys for a wonderful day and for sitting me next to the naughty best man!

Steve and Vicky get married

On Thursday we joined Steve and Vicky for the first of our 3 weddings for this week and it was a cracking wedding to start our weekend just as we had expected.  We started our day with Vicky at home for some relaxed and unhurried preperation photos before heading off to Stanstead House to meet up with Steve and the lads. We had a few minutes in and out of the showers with the lads before the registrars called them in which was perfect timing as the weather picked up perfectly as our beautiful bride Vicky was driven up in her uncles convertible BMW with the lid down.

After a beautiful ceremony we headed outside for a few family shots before all heading down to the chapel in the grounds for a blessing, it was our first blessing there and it was wonderful, after the blessing we all headed to the reception venue which was the nearby West Stoke House and it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon wandering around in the gardens, after a few relaxed fun portraits we all went into the wedding breakfast which was followed by coffee and then dancing.

During the evening we were entertained by the wonderful Danielle Merrick who is an amazing singer and you just have to check out her website.

All in all it was a great wedding with some wonderful guests including my new 6 week old buddy xhanda.

Lovely email

Earlier this week we delivered Alan and Kelly’s beautiful Jorgensen album from their wedding in May this year, they were delighted with it as were we.  Yesterday I received this wonderful email and I asked Alan if I could share it with you all, We just love getting to know our clients and its always real special when we receive messages like this.

Dear Julian and Sue,

On behalf of us both, I wanted to write and say how delighted we are with our wedding album which we collected today.

In fact delighted doesn’t really do it justice – we are absolutely blown away. Not just by the album but all the photographs are truly fantastic. Every single aspect of the day has been captured beautifully – we will treasure these memories in print all our lives.

Of course it’s not just our opinion – every one of our family and friends have loved the photographs – I’m sure there will be lots of requests for prints.

I have to have say the whole process of working with you from start to finish has been superb – you have both been so warm, friendly and helpful – you have also become friends.

Kelly and I put a lot of time and effort into planning our wedding and choosing the everything to make a special day. Without a shadow of a doubt the decision to book you was the best one we made.

We would have no hesitation in recommending you to any future prospective clients – as far as we’re concerned every wedding should get the “Porter treatment”!! Worth every penny.

Thank you both so very much again.

Love,

Alan & Kelly Reid.
