As 2016 draws to a close, I have finally put together a blog post of Charlotte and James’ wedding at Old Vicarage Boutique Hotel in July this year.
When I started going through the photos choosing which ones to show, it became obvious why there it had taken me so long to blog …there are so many I love from their wedding that I found it really (really!) hard to whittle them down. I know I blog more wedding photos than a lot of photographers but one of the reasons for this is that I want brides and grooms to get a good feel of how I photograph a full day at a wedding especially as a lot of clients will now book me for their wedding based on my website portfolio alone.
I met Charlotte and James in 2014 when they initially contacted me for a newborn photo session for their baby. They realised I also photographed weddings and booked me for both their baby’s newborn session and wedding.
They gorgeous little boy arrived at the beginning of 2015 (you can view a selection of their baby photos on my portrait website) and in July 2016 I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding. You will notice their very cute little boy appearing in some of the photos below!
The whole of the day took place at the Old Vicarage Boutique Hotel.
I started the day with Charlotte and her bridesmaids where there was plenty of laughter … just as there was throughout the whole of the day.
The hotel now has a licence for outdoor ceremonies and we were very fortunate with the glorious weather. This was, in fact, the first outdoor ceremony that had taken place at the hotel and it truly was beautiful. I honestly don’t think it could have gone any better.
Following the ceremony, guests mingled in the gardens for drinks and canapes before the wedding breakfast and speeches.
There were garden games and Jenga, in particular, kept the guys entertained. There was also some photo booth props for guests to take selfies/photos with a Fuji instax cameras so they could leave the photo with a note to Charlotte and James in their guest book.
Charlotte followed tradition by throwing the bouquet which one of her bridesmaids caught and soon after Charlotte and James started the evening entertainment with their first dance.
Here’s what Charlotte and James messaged me with when they had viewed their photos.
“Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day so perfectly. It’s like reliving the day all over again looking through them!”
Thank you both for choosing me to photograph your wedding day. It was an absolute pleasure and I wish you a lifetime of happiness together.
