Your images are beautiful and you’ve made looking back on those memories even more special with the passion and love you show in your work. Richard and I are forever grateful of your talent. Thanks for being you!
This intimate, creative, family Wedding is a pretty special one, it totally sums up how to make a Wedding celebration personal to yourselves. Every inch was curated & designed by Rich & Becky. It was an honour to be the one to record their day.
On a misty May morning I travelled to Becky’s Mum’s house in Bunny, Nottinghamshire. The house was calm, quiet & full of flowers. I popped to the Rancliffe Arms to catch up with Rich & Tom (& family) then back to Becky’s Mums for getting into the dress & Rich’s Mum & Becky’s Dad’s reactions.
I first met Becky & Rich outside Café Nero in West Bridgford. The were so super keen & exited about my style of photography & they mentioned they had hired a big red London bus to ferry everyone from the church to the pub. (I may have done a little dance when they went on to book me). They chose to have a pre wedding shoot at Batman’s House it was clear to see that they were made for each other. View a few shots from their shoot are here, they are so cute together. They also displayed a photo from the shoot on each table on a beautiful mini canvas & easel – love it!
During the ceremony at St. Mary’s Church, Bunny, (wow all the light) the vicar asked me to stay at the back & keep the photos to a minimum. The emotion in those shots still shows through & the framing of the beautiful church wouldn’t have been the same if I had been able to position myself at the front. Becky walked down the aisle to a friend playing the piano (the same friend also sang & played guitar for their first dance). All the feels.
Confetti was specially packaged inside each order of service, designed & made by Rich. (So many lovely design details at this Wedding, the signage, the table details all beautifully printed & linked together with a subtle twitter theme)… We grabbed a big group shot of everyone before boarding the super cool London bus transporting the guests to The Embankment at Trent Bridge now a Castle Rock Brewery pub. Originally Boots first ever pharmacy, then Boots sticky carpet social club….. (sad times)… it is now a pretty cool pub & events venue. Lovely old details still remain & the function room itself looked stunning.
Family stayed on the bus for a ride up to The Victoria Embankment for the all important group shots. Rich nailed his groomsmen shots whilst Amelia picked daisies to give to her Mummy.
After a slap up meal, the speeches were all incredibly emotional. Best Man Tom’s speech was batman themed, the finalé of which was to present a signed photo of Val Kilmer (the only batman actor to respond to his request).
The rain stayed away & everyone made their way outside for a breather & a shot or two.. before the cake cutting & a lovely acoustic first dance. Then the Mack Bro’s ensured the dance floor was full of epic moves all night.
Becky & Rich thank you for having me it was an absolute pleasure to share your perfect & super cool, very beautifully designed day! I know you will keep in touch x
