David and Claire get married at Careys Manor

On Sunday we joined David and Claire for our second wedding of the weekend at Careys manor in the New Forest, David and Claire booked us to cover from teh ceremony so just before that we joined David and the boys at Careys Manor for a few arrival shots and a few details and then we captured a few guests arriving before Claire made her entrance from her room and into the ceremony room which was packed to the hilt with their friends and families from all over the world including their home country of Dubai.  After a very moving ceremony thanks mainly to the vows especially Davids we moved out into the sunshine and onto the lawns under the amazing tree’s at Careys.  we had an hour to take a few family groups and a few guest shots and a little portraiture which is exactly what Claire and David wanted from their day. We then moved into dinner which was a BBQ,  after than we had the speeches which again were very emotional, we had 5 speeches, the usual 3 plus Claire’s sister and Claire so it made for a fun hour,  we then just managed to get the first dance in and Sue and I bid our goodbyes.

David and Claire, We had the most amazing fun day with you guys, you made us laugh a lot and cry a little, it truly was a wedding to remember,  have a great honeymoon and a safe trip back to Dubai.

Ben and Perrie @ the Stud

On Saturday we joined Ben and Perrie for the first of this weekends amazing weddings, we started our day with Perrie at The Bell for some relaxed preps and detail shots, we met the bridesmaid and Perrie’s parents as well which was nice and always helps the day flow better. We then headed off to the lovely St Andrews in Landford to meet with Ben and the boys again for some great relaxed shots although Ben was a little nervie at this point 🙂  We also met with Glen our preferred videographer (contact us for his details if your interested in a great video)

Soon Perrie arrived in a white Rolls Royce looking amazing and walked elegantly into the church full of amazed guests, after lovely service which thankfully we were allowed to photograph from anywhere (thanks David)  we went outside for confetti and then headed off back to the Landford Stud which Ben’s Dad owns,  we followed Ben and Perrie in there old Bristol car which was a surprise.   We then had a couple of hours in the sun on the lawns before the weather turned and we headed into dinner, afterwards they all whipped outside to do the first dance on the lawn before the singer had to leave, we then wandered back in for the speeches, Bens was amazing, a real tear jerker !

we then did a few evening shots before Sue and I headed of home.

Great wedding with wonderful people, thanks to you all for being so much fun, especially Pooh

Charlotte and Clint get married at East Horton Golf Club

On Saturday we met with Charlotte and Clint for our third wedding of the weekend and we were so lucky again with the weather,  we started our day with Charlotte at her Dads house for a few relaxed preperation shots and lots of details and then we headed off to Upham to the local pub to meet Clint and the boys having a pre wedding pint. We then wandered down to the church where the heavens opened, but thankfully we were distracted by the amazing DB7 that Clint had arrived in 🙂 after a nice service we peeked outside and thankfully the rain had stopped and in fact the sun was shinning so everyone had strawerries and pimms  on the grass beside the church whilst we took a few family photographs.  we then headed off to East Horton Golf Club where we took Clint and Charlotte off for a few photographs whilst we waited for everyone to arrive and then did a few relazing guest shots before being called into dinner and speeches.  After dinner we took Clint and Charlotte off in a couple of  golf buggies, well Clint drove like a lunnie !!!  for some great photos and then a few more evening family shots and then into dance.

It was great to spend some time with Charlotte who looked sensational and Clint who has the most amazing blue eyes 🙂    hahaha

A great day surrounded by great people including David and Libby who reccomended us, thanks guys x  it was great to once again see so many friends.

Peter and Anna get married :-)

On Friday we shot our second wedding of the week when we joined Peter and Anna for there lovely wedding in Elstead Surrey, we started our day with the lads in the local pub for a few prep shots and  a few details, we then walked the half mile to the church to meet a few guests and wait for Peter to arrive in the Porsche which was a pretty cool way to arrive. A little while later Anna arrived and cheered on by lots of her young pupils she walked into the beautiful church.  After the service we spent an hour in the churchyard photographing some informal shots of the guests as well as a few family groups which was fun.

We then headed off to Gatestreet Barn for some more informal shots and some lovely romantic portraits before being called into Dinner,  after dinner and cake cutting, well cheese actually, we headed into the dance floor where Peter surprised Anna by singing to her supported by 99 stunned and shocked guests and 1 very surprised and very happy wife 🙂  this was followed by the dancing which is where we finished covering this beautiful day.

Peter and Anna were reccomended to us by Dave Gaunt who is one of our 2008 grooms and a fantastic chap, cheers dave you are a star !

We had a lovely day and it was amazing to see so many old faces from Dave and Vanessa’s wedding, lots of old friends,  thanks to everyone for making us feel at home.
