Our second wedding of the weekend was very much a “home grown affair” 🙂 Claire and her mum made the wedding cake and the wedding dress and the wedding reception was at Claire’s parents house in Ower Totton. We arrived with Claire at home in the morning for preps which included Claire’s amazing shoes, not ya traditional wedding shoes but a pair of nifty Converse all-stars in cream which I loved, these tagged with the very traditional wedding dress worked well 🙂 quirky but well !
After shooting the preps and the marquee details we headed off to the Church, well actually the pub next to the church to meet Doug for a few shots with the boys and then before we knew it we could hear the clip clop of the horses and Claire and her Dad arrived in the Horse and Carriage, a few shots and then into St Matthews church in Netley Marsh.
Sadly the vicar would not allow any photos 🙁 shocking IMO but despite my argument I could not get him to listen.
After the service we came out into the sunshine where we took some relaxed guest shots as well as our family groups, we were blesses with amazing sunshine again so it was a pleasure. We then headed off with Claire and Doug to a local spot for a few photos before heading back to the reception, we had another hour on the lawn before everybody headed into dinner and Sue and I headed off for a sandwich which is where we met the amazing Gary Grace who was lead singer with the evenings swing band
When we returned we cracked on into speeches and then waited whilst the band set up, The band sounded amazing and were every bit worth waiting for, Sue and I held on for 3 or 4 songs after the first dance us to grab a few dancers and listen to Gary 🙂
Here are a few of my favourites and then a slideshow.
