Hannah & Calum

All the dreams and planned moments and at last you are in your very own story heading off into the hazy evening sun with your photographer in tow and creating the most luminous portrait

And so it’s April and the sun is shining and there is wedding fever in the air ! Endless opportunities to capture the most wonderful memories. The Cherry Barn https://www.instagram.com/thecherrybarn/ pops into view as we drive up the most prettiest of lanes settling itself in the rows of cherry blossom. The bride, her mother and her maids are busy preparing every detail to perfection.

8 sage green dresses hang in a circular formation as a bridesmaid steams them carefully, stacked takeaway coffees arrives in another’s hands, make up and hair tussled for those special bridal looks, every corner buzzing ! These girls are in party mood and are instagramming from every angle while now and then breaking into dancing and singing exactly as it should be, a day to cherish.

So it was off to the boys a couple of miles away  https://www.instagram.com/flackley_ash_hotel/ 

Unusually they were all dressed and about to make a very dapper photoshoot. It was one of those days that every turn produced another shot not to be missed. Dickie bows across the board and suited perfectly with a cool swagger to match. Just being the boys made this an easy relaxed ‘get everything captured’ kind of morning in the sun, giggling at their banter I just loved it. Gifts, a few bevvies, cologne and of course ring safety was the top priority, check-check and double check. 

Executing our timeline with constant checking in back pocket for notes, it’s back to the girls for the first looks, the bridesmaids with their love and friendship (insert the goosebumps). The dad, o gosh the dad h hum and yes lets do another first look just for the groomsmen waiting in a reception line outside the door. I love all of these moments, very moving.

Such a bright sunny day we waited for the evening softness to go out and take in the beautiful scenery and celebrate with some special friends and family time

Sage green is a definite favourite always has been and this has just confirmed my view

The Light around us !

I love the playful moments each and every face making it their moment … you girls rock !!

Guests from the sideline “looks like its straight out of a magazine” with whoops and whoos,

an honour bestowed upon me to shoot

The exit of the newly weds and I think those faces say it all
