This day was long, so very long, but also awesome. Normally we get on really well with our clients, we end up being genuine friends and this is what makes our photography work so well. With these guys it wasn’t just the couple and a few guests we clicked with but the entire wedding party, everyone made us feel like family and it shows.
The day was non stop, the guys got up early and went for breakfast, sorted out some flowers, got hair cuts, somehow managed to find a shop open to get some massive balloons inflated and all before casually getting dressed for a busy day.
The ladies were also on it, bridal prep was in full flow at The KP Club and as you can see it was a group affair, taking deliveries, sorting out garters, pouring champagne, eating many haribo and then slowing it all down to chill out for a moment and take in that the wedding day was really about to get started.
Zoe looked beautiful and elegantly glided down the stairs to greet her dad who was stunned. The guys were now starting to loose a bit of the calm and relaxed vibe although mark insisted that he wasn’t nervous. It was a packed ceremony room with the registrar having to make “health and safety” adjustments because there were so many people waiting to see these two tie the knot.
These two are childhood sweethearts and the room was so still during the vows with the hesitant expectation of watching a couple who’ve been together since they were young teenagers finally happening. Once the vows and the speeches had broken the suspense there was an eruption of happiness from everyone and the atmosphere was electric.
These guys knew the score and kept their group shots to a minimum and chilled out with their guests enjoying their day instead of spending hours lining up for formalities. Oh and did we mention Mark arrived at the venue in his new tractor? We’re not normally one for particularly posey shots but I have no idea how to casually drop a tractor into wedding photos….answers on a postcard if you’ve got any ideas haha.
Now the speeches were intense, I’ll fess up here, this is the only wedding I have ever been choked up at, Mark almost had me in tears during the ceremony whilst his voice was trembing saying his vows but the Groom’s speech, Jesus, this got me and everyone, i managed to stay composed but Jenni had lost it.
Seriously, best Grooms speech ever. From the heart, tender, honest and emotional words. Look at the photos.
In contrast, no-one was crying at the night do, I could waffle on but all I’ll say is that these guys seriously party and we wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂
