On Saturday we joined James and Kelly for their wedding at New Place in Hampshire on what was a wet and very blustery February day but I am pleased to say the windy wet weather never dampened anyones spirits and a fab day was had by all.
We started our day as we always do with the girls for preperations so lots of detail shots and the girls getting ready and of course enjoying some champagne too.
After an hour or so we headed off to see the boys and although we could not go outside we did get a few on the steps, as Sue always says “Jules will be the only one getting wet” thanks Sue 🙂 as well as a few ring shots which we love doing.
We then headed back to Kelly for the final dress shots which were unfortunately interrupted by the miserable bugger of a Registrar who insisted that Kelly come right now “we are busy today” despite me finding out that they only had that 1 wedding, shocking some people ! anyway unphased Kelly made her grand appearance into a crowded ceremony room with 1 slight difference, she was carrying their Son William and it was just perfect, Kelly and James were already the perfect family with their gorgeous William and it was quite fitting that he should be part of the day 🙂 made me very happy to see.
After a beautiful ceremony we headed straight outside whilst the weather was better to do the ceremonial sword arch followed by a few chilly hugs and kisses and a quick but very effective confetti lineup, boy it was chilly and very windy but it made for some fun and very memorable photos 🙂
We then headed back inside for drinks and nibbles and family groups by the fireplace which were fun and sort of chaotic haha but we all enjoyed it. Sue and I then took James and Kelly off for some photos which was just the perfect end before heading into the wedding breakfast where we did our table shots which always get a laugh from the guests.
After the meal we had the speeches, 3 of them but not the “standard” 3. First up was James with a very thoughtful and quite emotional at times speech and then came the star of the show Kelly who gave a long awaited haha speech which was lovely followed by the Best man Ollie who also gave a lovely speech we then retired to the bar area until the evening began.
The first dance was very quick, honestly I managed 1 photo before they invited the rest of the guests 🙂 then the band started and the room was filled with fun and dancing for the evening.
It was lovely to see our friends Carl and Emily as well as Jo and Ben (who’s wedding we shot a few years back) before Sue and I said our goodbye’s and headed home, tired but very happy after our first wedding this year. 2014 is going to be a real busy year for us and we are both excited about it, we still have a few spaces left so please contact us if your interested in securing your date with us we would love to hear from you and chat about joining you for your special day.
