Another fab Wedding by Jules & Sue

Lauren and Bill’s wedding day…

Last week we joined Lauren and Bill for their wedding day and wow what a day it was..  We started our day at home with Lauren in Surrey which was quite a drive but thankfully only 2 minutes from the beautiful church they had chosen. We had a real fun hour with the girls and loads of beautiful details too. It was such an awesome way to start our day.

We then headed to the church and once parked we were, unfortunately, greeted by the very unfriendly church warden who went on to not only tell me I was not allowed to take any photos but she actually shouted this quite rudely in front of everyone, I told her politely that she did not need to shout and her reasons for not letting me shoot were IMO unchristian but that only rattled her cage more. So sadly no service shots apart from entrance and signing 🙁 sad but if churches do not become more wellcoming they will fail.  One shining light was we got to see our buddies from a previous wedding Carrie and Dan which was just lovely.

Afterwards we slipped out into the churchyard for beautifully relazed photos and confetti. We also did a few group photos and almost laughably, the church warden actually asked me to stop taking photos and leave the church because they had another wedding. She said please be fair about this hahaha needless to say my reply was not very christian.

After the church we all headed off to the beaitiful venue which was about 50 minutes away. We followed the Rolls Royce and took a few shots on the way. We arrived at Old Thornes and the fun started out onto the terrace for champagne and canapes. A few more photos and then out on the golf buggies for some couple shots. This is a beautiful venue with beautiful grounds and we had a lovely half an hour exploring with Lauren and Bill.

Then we were called into dinner and the first 2  speeches and then after dinner 3 more speeches and then coffee which gave us time to setup our funtime fotos which can be seen here.  We had such a laugh doing these today it was just brilliant.

Then it was time to cut the beautiful cake and then the dancing which brough our day to a close. We really enjoyed Lauren and Bill’s day and loved meeting their family and friends.

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,

Cheryl, Andrew, the boys and the legos

On Saturday we joined Andrew and Cheryl for their beautiful and very elegant wedding at Beaulieu Abbey and the Montague Arms in the New Forest.

I started my day surprising with an 05:30 40 mile cycle ride to Beaulieu, I often do this no matter where the wedding is but todays ride was a little odd because it was dark when I started and I could not get my head around why 🙂 it was early to be fair haha. Anyway as I reached Nursling it was raining and rained all the way to Beaulieu and back and was generally naff. Thankfully that was then end of the rain and the day just got better and better for Andrew and Cheryl.

We started our work day with Cheryl and the gals about 10:30 over at their home in Park Gate for some beautiful and seriously elegant details which was lovely. We took lots of beautiful shots and got to know the important people too which makes so much difference to our day.

We then headed off the 30 or so minutes to Beaulieu and once parked at the Montague Arms we had a quick lunch and then walked over to the Abbey to meet Andrew and the lads for some fun shots with the boys. Cheryl has a “thing” about horse droppings so there was a “special wedding shovel” to hand to clear the path and this did make a fun journey a little later. After shots with the boys and the arriving guests we waited for Cheryl to arrive in a beautiful Rolls Royce and then we were whisked into church for an absolutely amazing ceremony, it always in at the Abbey because its such an awesome building especially  bearing in mind it was never built as an Abbey or Church.

Afterwards we all spilled out into the gourds where Pimms and drinks were served, we have done this a few times at the church and it makes for a lovely occasion and really brings the church into the photos. We also did the family photos at the church which again was perfect and meant the next part of the wedding day would be more relaxed for the guests.

We then walked to the Montague Arms led by Cheryl and Andrews Son’s Alistair and Samuel whoo were on “shovel duty” and took it very seriously there was poo flying everywhere haha.

Back at the Montague arms we had a couple of fun hours photographing the guests enjoying themselves and the beautiful weather, a couple more groups and the couple photos before we headed into room details and then the most amazing wedding breakfast. Sue and I often get invited to join our couples and depending on when it is we sometimes do and today worked out just perfect because I had no race the next day 🙂 I am so pleased coz we had a lovely mean and an awesome table too.

Speeches. WOW fob and groom were both good, short and sweet and just as needed but then Alistair and Samuel who were also the best men came in to action. Alistair for the speech and Samuel for the toast. I am not kidding or exaggerating when I sat thus was close to being my favourite best man speed EVER, absolutely amazing and not a dry eye…..

Afterwards back out into the fading sunshine whilst the band setup and then into the cake cut and first dance which despite the tight room was a beautiful choreographed number that everyone enjoyed. Strictly come dancing voting and applause finished the dance which is pretty much when we said our goodbyes.

Absolutely TOP day guys we loved it. X

I dont just Cycle :-)

For those of you that follow me on Facebook I thought I would write a quick blog post to let you know that my life consists of more than just Cycling and Canyon Bicycles, granted I do love to ride and spend most of my free time either Cycling, training or planning one of the 2.  But there is much more to me than that. Cycling has become my drug of choice but photography has always been my first love and here is a small but interesting selection of some of the things we get to photograph in our day to day life.

Please take a scroll down, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Laura and Dan get married

On Saturday we joined Laura and Dan for their wedding at Audleys Wood near basingstoke on yet another beautiful July Saturday so we spent most of the day enjoying the beautiful Audleys wood gardens and grounds.  We started our day with Laura and the girls in one of the suites for some lovely peroration shots and lots of beautiful details. This is always a great way for us to start our wedding days because we get to know the bridesmaids and often Mum too so it helps with our relaxed approach so much.

After wards we headed off for a few shots with Dan and the boys, A few of the lads were held up in traffic so we just concentrated on Dan and the Best Man and did the rest afterwards.

The ceremony was just lovely, I love the ceremony room at Audleys Wood because it has space and light and is very comfortable. A reading or 2 later and we were all ushered out into the sunshine. Almost straight away we headed to the shade because it was honestly unbearable for those dressed up but it was just perfect. A few mingling shots, the family groups and some portraits of the couple all done in perfect time thanks to awesome people.

We then headed inside to the Air Conditioned (thankfully) reception room for dinner followed by speeches.  Afterwards we setup our funtime fotos and spent an hour having sone fun before the evening started with cake cutting and first dance.

All in all a pretty perfect wedding. 10/10 on all counts, maybe a little to hot but hey it will be raining next week so we really cant complain about that can we haha.

O and Dan’s lovely Mum absolutely loved cyclists so we got on like a house on fire 😀

Thanks guys for a lovely wedding day X
