This month, among other things, I had the pleasure of photographing Nicola and Jason’s wedding.
The ceremony took place at St Mary’s Church in Tollesbury, followed by the reception at Forrester Park Golf & Country Club.
My day started at 10am, taking some bridal preparation shots of a very relaxed Nicola and her daughter Millie while they were getting pampered by make-up artist Emma and hairstylist Tina.
While Nicola was getting into her bridal outfit, assisted by her Mum and Tina, I popped over to get a few shots of the guys getting ready. As I’ve photographed many weddings I’ve learnt the art of tying cravats and attaching button holes – both skills were called upon today!
So, back to Nicola’s for some final preparation shots. WOW! She looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress!
By 1.30pm the vintage-style car, Milly, had arrived. An emotional father helped her into the car for the short journey to the church.
After the lovely service it was a 15-minute drive to Forrester’s for the reception. Having an hour or so before the wedding breakfast, I had some time alone with the newlyweds to get the more intimate shots.
After the meal and the speeches it was time for my final duties of the day, to photograph the cutting of the cake and the first dance, complete with confetti cannon.
This was a lovely wedding and I feel privileged to have been asked to photograph it and to have met such a lovely family.
