Another longly anticipated wedding yesterday at Highley Manor with Lucy and Russell.
What an Amazing day!
The weather was looking great, warm and slightly overcast. Perfect for wedding photography.
I arrived at Highley Manor to cover ceremony to wedding breakfast. The guests were arriving and getting drinks. The groomsmen were dashing around making sure guests were kept topped up. You could feel the build up and excitment growing the closer it got to the big event.
After popping up to see Russell I captured a few mingling shots and social coverage. Laughter and smiles filled the room.
Russell had a few minutes spare so we did a few shots of him with the groomsmen. Bobby was the ring bearer, so again a few shots with him. He was looking very dapper with his suit to match the men, and his little white Nike trainers. Cool kid!
Everyone made their way to the seats.
Russell stood at the front nervously waiting for his bride.
Lucy made her way from the bridal preparation room. She had a beautiful white dress, along with some stunning shoes. She limped in a little and found that she had a large stone stuck. Abbey the wedding coordinator stepped in to assist. (Had to capture the expressions sorry Lucy haha).
This broke the ice a little for the girls. Lucy was ready!
Lucy and her father walked down the isle to 80s power ballards and people gasped recognising the song and how wonderful it was. It was emotional.
The ceremony went well and there was laughter and joy as the couple tied the knot.
I don’t think there was a single person that didn’t take a photo. Everyone had their phones out when the couple signed the paperwork. They have a fantastic close nit community of friends and family.
Drinks and canapes followed outside, whilst groups shots took place. In the background played a saxophonist playing alongside 80’s music. Everyone was having a lovely time.
The table setting was beautiful, Clementine one of lucy’s close friends did the flower arranging and centre peices, which looked amazing! Well done Clem! You can find her services here http://www.clementinesfloralstyling.co.uk
Next were a few more romantics and group shots. I won’t share too many.
As we went to go in for food, the weather slightly changed, but it didn’t matter at that point.
Terrine to start, Roast Beef or Salmon for main and a triple dessert to finish. Speeches followed the food.
The brides father started with a short but sweet speech. Which led to the grooms very emotional speech. Everyone was up on their feet cheering to Russell’s final words.
The bestman took centre stage to finish and had everyone laughing and cheering. Again another emotional finish.
A mock cutting of the cake and that was me done.
I’d like to thank Lucy and Russell for including me in their big day, thanks to their friends and family for making me feel welcome and I wish them the best in married life!
Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Holman! x
