We left Amie and Jon as they were leaving the church to head off to their reception at the splendid Donnington Valley Hotel nearby. The rain meant that we were not able to do any confetti shots outside the church as planned, so we were delighted when the Hotel suggested using the mezzanine above the main reception area for this shot instead. It is fantastic to work with a venue that has contingency plans and that don’t mind you making a mess of their lobby area!
and who doesn’t love a bride who dances around in slowly falling confetti…..?
and as for place names attached to jars of bon bons, I squealed!
That marvellous lobby and mezzanine also provided us with space to do a whole group shot – it really is unusual for venues to have the right kind of space to create this shot indoors.
The flowers were supplied by the lovely Croppers of Theale with each table named for a Wonderwall song – what a great personal touch…
I love capturing reactions to the speeches and Jon’s best men provided me with plenty….
During the course of the wedding breakfast the rain cleared, so Amie, Jon and I were able to get outside later in the day for some couple shots.
and have a play with the wind in the veil 😀
A live band kept the dance floor rocking long into the night….
though the boys still found a chance to sneak off for a cheeky cigar 😉
I hope you have enjoyed sharing Amie and Jon’s gorgeous day with me. I really love the table centrepieces, they were stunning. What about you?
