Hello Blushing Bride Wedding Photography fans, it’s that time again….
I can’t believe we find ourselves in the 3rd week of March, 2014 – this year is flying by!
In terms of my blog diary I’m still in September, 2013 so I thought I’d tell you all about Zoe & Dan’s wedding which took place on 7th September 2013.
The day started with Bridal Preparation at the home of the Bride’s parents. Zoe’s mum & dad are such lovely people and we had a real giggle at the house before we all left for the church. One of the funniest moments was when the Bride, who was having her make-up done at the time, noticed that the pet rabbit had escaped! Just what you want the morning of your daughter’s wedding. After several attempts I’m pleased to report that Dad saved the day & saved the rabbit and it was safely back in its run before we had to leave. Funny as!
Zoe’s mum was not allowed in the Wedding Car! Zoe & her dad wanted to keep the moment all to themselves so as well as being photographer I also drove Zoe’s mum to the church, on way to meet the boys at the pub!
The couple were married in the gorgeous Holy St Trinity Church in Larkfield. The church is positioned high above the street and is accessed by a steep stairway – perfect for a lens tilt!
Once all the Guests are the Groomsmen were safely in the church, Zoe arrived with her dad in a beautiful Royal Blue & Ivory Beauford, decorated with hot pink ribbons to match the Bride & Groom’s hot pink colour theme. The driver even stopped short of the Church to take the soft top down to arrive in true style!
Zoe then ascended the steps to meet her Groom ….
The Wedding Service was conducted by Rev David Walker who as well as being the Vicar is also the Groom’s Step-Dad! After the couple were wed everyone enjoyed the lovely sunshine in the grounds of the church whilst the usual formals groups were photographed. The guests then left, on foot, for the Wedding Reception which took place just across the road in Larkfield Village Hall.
With Bride & Groom to myself I was able to capture some lovely intimate shots in the church grounds before the newly-weds were whisked away, champagne in hand, in the beautiful Beauford for a private drive.
The driver then returned the happy couple to their family & friends for their Wedding Reception. A lovely day was had by all. For more images from Zoe & Dan’s big day please refer to their Portfolio.
Love to all,
