Welcome back for part three of this fabulous and beautiful wedding. I hope you are enjoying seeing the pictures as much as I enjoy sharing them with you. Please do leave a comment to let me know what you think. Helen and Garry have also very kindly left their online album open so that others can take a peek, so pop over and see the rest when you have time to put your feet up with a cup of tea (or a glass of wine, if you feel so inclined…) http://www.binnsphoto.co.uk/view-your-pictures/albums/12929
This wedding was so full of beautiful details it was difficult to know where to look next. Helen and Paula of Paula Rooney Weddings had done a fabulous job of turning a marquee into something truly stunning, the reactions from the guests as they saw the paper balls on the ceiling and the fabulous table centres were ones of genuine surprise and delight.
I loved the menus on the tables – each one in a different vintage picture frame. I also loved that the dessert reflected the country garden theme for the day. Scones, clotted cream and strawberries, all in individual baskets so that guests could help themselves….
I always like to get into the kitchen if possible to get some shots of the food being prepared just as it is ready to go out. Not all kitchens can accommodate this, but Trunkwell were most welcoming. I am always delighted with kitchen shots and often the venue ask to use them as well, telling me that they rarely get pictures of their kitchen staff in action!
I always offer couples a pre-wedding shoot a couple of months before their big day and often they order a signing print of one of the images from that day. This one was a gift to Helen and Garry as a thank you for recommending me to some friends for their wedding.
This shot is one of my favourites from the day – the expression on the flower girl’s face as she gazes longingly at the lollipop – you just couldn’t stage that…
Shortly before the first dance I rushed up to Helen and said “You have to come outside, the clouds are amazing!” By this time she and Garry knew me well enough to go with it, so I grabbed the videographer to act as a portable light stand and we created this shot.
Then the first dance. Oh, the first dance! The paper balls, the lighting, the sparkly dance floor, the tearful guests, the children in the corner not paying them any heed at all……
I hope you have enjoyed sharing some of the highlights of this genuinely stunning wedding. Please leave a comment, I would love to know what you think. Which image do you like best?
