The photos are so amazing, you have a unique way of capturing moments, thank you!
Rachel & Matt what can I say! I’m not sure I’ve met a couple so excited & involved with EVERY aspect of their day. Together they put in A HUGE amount of effort to making sure the day was perfect & that each & every guest had a brilliant time. Matt should win most thoughtful Groom of the year award, he gave Rachel an amazing present for each of their 8 years together.
When I first met Rachel I tried to have that little chat that every photographer has about what will happen if it rains… Rachel’s words were.. IT WILL NOT RAIN ON MY WEDDING DAY…. Welllll we woke to the most TORRENTIAL RAIN I’ve ever had to deal with on a Wedding day. I was more than a little apprehensive of how this may affect stress levels. But as I arrived at the salon I could see Rachel was so happy her day was finally here. The fact the vicar had also popped in for a quick pre Wedding trim definitely lightened the mood! Luckily by the time Rachel arrived at the church the rain had pretty much stopped & held off for the rest of the day.
I loved every aspect of Rachel & Matt’s Wedding, it was a true honour & a pleasure to be the one to capture it. They really appreciated everything I was doing for them & I genuinely couldn’t have met a nicer, happier couple.
The ceremony was held at St. Michaels & All Angels in Derby & the reception was a good drive out to The Bentley Brook Inn in Derbyshire. We had arranged with Andy the owner & driver of his beautiful Riley to stop along the way for a few couples photographs. If you are in need of a Wedding car look no further, Andy is a true gent, his car is absolutely immaculate after spending the last 20 years restoring it & a % of his fee goes to Macmillan. The life of Riley, Luxury Car hire.
We made sure of shots in the designated Wedding tree at Bentley Brook! Rachel ordered a bouquet made specifically for the toss!!! I’m so glad I suggested popping away to a little spot I’d spied out in advance, just up the road from the venue, for some golden light shots after the speeches before the evening guests arrived. The evening consisted of a beautiful choreographed first dance, Casino, Photo Booth & Caricaturist, what more could any Wedding need! Here’s a little taster…..
