On Friday we joined Tom and Claire for their beautiful wedding which we had been looking forward to for a long time now. When Tom and Claire came to see us they were excited about their day which was starting at St Mary’s church in Southampton and then moving to the Chilworth Manor hotel. We love the Church because of the vicars laid back approach and his love of running 🙂 its good to have something in common and the Chilworth manor has always been a favourite of ours and of course very local too.
We started our day with Claire at home in Rushington and she was very calm and we spent the hour taking some of the beautiful detail shots as well as Claire getting ready for her big day. We then headed off to St Mary’s to meet Tom and the boys for a few photos, It was raining quite heavily at this point so we did a couple of shots in the doorway and let the boys get on with their morning. We met with the vicar and checked the rules again and obviously chatted running 🙂 he has actually ran one of the races that I am doing in California which was cool.
Soon Claire arrived looking fabulous and we whisked her into the warm dry church and into the beautiful ceremony. After the ceremony we took a few family photos in the church and then headed off to chilworth and once there we took Tom and Claire off for a few photos inside whilst we waited for the guests to arrive. We then spent an hour photographing the drinks reception and a few more family groups including one of my favourites the 3 Generation shot which I sort of insisted on (in the nicest possible way) .
We then went into dinner so we did our usual table shots which are always very popular and afterwards we had 3 of the funniest speeches which finished with a lovely song from the 2 best men. After the meal Sue and I took Tom and Claire outside for a few photos because thankfully the sun was out albeit briefly but it will make a nice addition to the photo. Once done we headed back indoors to setup our funtime fotobooth and a few minutes later word was out and we were pretty manic from that point on and it was so much fun.
We photographed the first dance and then headed back to the photo booth where we stayed until about 10pm.
It was an awesome wedding and it just goes to prove my point that weddings are about people and not the “perfect weather” for Tom and Claire Fridays was the Perfect weather for a perfect day.
Thanks to everyone for a fab wedding and a great time with our booth.
Here are a few photos from this wonderful wedding I hope you enjoy and love them as much as we do and look forward to your comments and seeing you again soon,
