A two parter for you today on the blog. Once again we returned to Chippenham Park which we absolutely love as a venue. In fact it is fast becoming one of our favourites. Rosanna and Ben had a great day and we were there with them from ten in the morning to capture it all. We get a lot of couples who ask us if we can start the day at the marriage ceremony rather than cover the Bridal preparations. I usually try to compromise and ask if we can at least cover the final part of the preparations. Part two of this wedding will be from the marriage to the evening party so make sure you come back for those. By splitting the blog into two parts it gives an idea of what type of images you can miss out on by having us only cover from the ceremony. We are storytellers and I always feel we provide more of a complete story of the day when we are there from the start. This is a small selection from the morning and I know that these images will be more and more valuable to Rosanna and Ben as time goes on. The excitement of their daughter (the little cheeky one) and Rosanna’s sisters and friends as they got ready was lovely to be part of, as always a real honour. The guests arriving and the groom waiting with his Best man which Doug captured while I was with the girls always leads to some warm moments and often my favorite bit is when the father sees the bride for the first time in her dress. Her Dad and her friends reaction on this occasion was priceless. These beautiful moments will now always be frozen in time. That is why I love this job and love photography. The ceremony was almost moved inside due to the weather but Rosanna wanted to take the risk and it held off just long enough for them to get married and for half an hour afterwards. Perfect ! Tori Harris once again did the make up and hair for the girls, Tori and I work together a lot and she always does a fantastic job. Looking forward to working with you again in 2016 Tori.
Watch out for part two coming very soon …..
