Me, Sue, James and Suzie, a Bishop and a Volcano !

On Saturday we travelled to Bury Court Barn in Bentley to photograph the beautiful wedding of James and Suzie who live just down the road from us.  Whilst traveling up Sue and I were chatting about the odd guest missing the wedding because of the Icelandic Volcano but little did we know just how important a guest  it was who was going to miss this wedding.  When we got to Suzie at the Barns at Bury Court she told us that the Vicar was stranded in Rome and was unable to get back but her next words were “We have an upgrade” with a smile, Yes we have the Bishop !

After an hour or so at Bury Court Barn we traveled just down the road to St James Church in Rowledge  where we were greeted by the Bishop,  I am pleased to say he was a wonderful chap and looked just amazing in his full gown and hat, I am also pretty sure that he thought I looked amazing too 🙂

After the most amazing and at times moving ceremony we headed outside for confetti and then back to Bury Court for our photos and drinks in the wonderful gardens, we were blessed with great weather and 170 wonderful guests so had the perfect Bury Court Barn Wedding.

During the very funny and emotional speeches James the Groom read out a poem that he had composed for Suzie and then got a standing ovation, well deserved !

Later in the evening after a very scrummy wedding breakfast cooked and expertly served by Jacaranda (thanks guys) we moved into the evening with “face in the crowd” a live band who were incredible and continued to dance long into the night.

Thanks guys for looking after us.

Wedding photos at Chilworth Manor with Richard and Sonia

On Friday we joined Richard and Sonia for their wedding at Chilworth Manor in Southampton on what was yet another glorious day.  Chilworth manor is only half a mile from our studio so its a very popular venue for us and the more we work there the more we like it,  Richard and Sonia had an amazing day which went without a hitch mainly because of Sonia’s planning and sheer determination to get things right !  we started our day at St John the Baptist church in North Baddesley for an amazing service in a very packed church and then some very entertaining confetti afterwards, when I say confetti it was a toss up wether I called it confetti or a controlled explosion but after thinking about it, there was NO CONTROL !

We then headed off to the Chilworth manor for a wonderful relaxed afternoon sipping drinks on the lawns and watching the world go by, after a few lovely photos we all headed into a wonderful wedding breakfast and then the speeches which were very entertaining including the best woman Anna who gave Sonia a scary 5 minutes.

We were then lucky enough to get outside for a few more photos and to catch the last of the sunset before back in again to dance.

Later in the evening Richard and Sonia surprised everyone with a traditional popcorn trolly and a Candy Floss trolly and everybody just loved it, what a perfect way to end the perfect day.

Thanks for looking after us guys and although you did not make your honeymoon due to the volcano, you did have an awesome wedding day !

Wedding photos @ Lainston House Winchester with Robin and Emma

On Sunday we joined Robin and Emma for their lovely wedding at Lainston House in Winchester Hampshire for what was another beautiful sunny day.  We started the day with a very excited Emma at Lainston House and spent a couple of hours getting to know her family  before heading off to the local pub to catch up with Robin and the boys, after a few relaxed photos I asked the Best man Ryan  for the rings only to get the old ” OMG I left them at the hotel”  fortunatkly it was only a mile away but it did make us all laugh 🙂

We then went into the church where we met Anna and Simon, Anna was one of our lovely bridesmaids at her Sister’s wedding (Lucy and Carl at the White Star Hotel) back in January. After a beautiful ceremony we headed up the road to Lainston for a fun filled afternoon on the lawns and then into the wedding breakfast in the beautiful Dawly barn.

We had a lovely day and look forward to seeing all of our friends again at the next wedding 🙂
