I arrived at the Highfield Park Hotel to find Steph in large curlers and her dressing gown. what a great look !!
The Bridesmaids and the Bride were all in a pre-bridal room getting their hair and makeup done.
Steph was very nervous indeed and needed a moment or two throughout the morning to calm her nerves.
We were soon moving into the bridal suite and started to take pre- wedding photographs of the bridal party. The room is small but lovely and all goes smoothly.
Before we know it Vince the Groom and his Groomsmen arrive at the venue, (we get to know Carls name, one of the two bestmen within minutes as he is such a character!). I knew these men were going to make this part of the photography easy and be so much fun or should I say crazy to be around.
We head off to take the Groomsmen’s photographs and try to calm Vince’s nerves, that didnt take long at all as he is enjoying this time with his friends maybe a little too much.
Its soon time to get Vince into the Registrar so the legal side of things can be completed before he can enter the ceremony room and wait for his Bride, his nerves showing through a little bit by now.
We set Steph up on the stairs to enter with her Dad, she looks stunning I may add and a little nervous.
This must have been the most fun ceremony I think I have ever had the pleasure to photograph and witness (that includes the Registrar too!)
We move to the grounds for group photos and more of the Bride and Groom.
The wedding breakfast looked fabulous as did the attention to detail in the reception room, the speeches again were so funny and the mood was electric, the day went smoothly, it was great great fun, everyone was such a pleasure to work with, A little mention for Vince’s mum here, She is a lovely lady, I see where Vince gets his humour from.
The evening was too soon upon us so the cake cutting and first dance was to be captured, Needless to say the first dance was not what you would expect. Vince and Steph put their own spin on things …lets just say a lot of spins, great day had by all.
