Three years ago I was exhibiting at Branston Hall Wedding fayre when Steph came up to the stand and announced she wanted to book me. She had seen some photos I had done a while ago for a colleague and had decided there and then that she wanted the same photographer! Her wedding was still two years away but it was a July wedding and these dates have to be booked well in advance.
Finally the day dawned – scorching sunshine, clear blue skies – just perfect for a wedding at Branston Hall. The day started for me with Steph at Branston Hall itself, where she was getting ready with her bridesmaids and family.
It was then we heard the welcome news the the ceremony could happen outdoors – for once the British weather was kind! Branston Hall is licensed to hold outdoor ceremonies but I have never been lucky enough to photograph one as the weather has always thwarted us! Dave looked enormously proud and emotional as Steph walked down the aisle with her dad – rarely have I ever been to ceremony punctuated by so many happy tears, and so much laughter!
After the ceremony, and in the glorious sunshine, everyone converged onto the terrace for drinks, and of course the photos. The heart shape photo Steph and Dave requested took less than 5 minutes to set up (it’s easy if you know how!!)
It was sunshine all day and, after drinks and canapés on the lawn, everyone sat down to listen to some very funny speeches (especially the one by the lovely bride herself!), followed by a BBQ for the wedding breakfast.
Below are a selection of photos from their wedding day. As you will see, Steph looked stunning! I would like to take this opportunity of thanking Steph and Dave for choosing me to be their wedding photographer and I wish them all the best in the future together.
A thank you from Steph on my facebook page :-
” Thank you Sharon, the photos were stunning and you’ve made one bride, one groom and one mother VERY happy:) They are giving me and my guests so much pleasure to look at them .You really did capture the essence of the whole day – love, fun and laughter xxx”
