Today saw us having the privilege of photographing the wedding of Angela and Gary, at the wonderful location of the woodlands at Holthorpe hall.
We had met Angela and Gary at Sedgebrook Halls wedding fair and knew right away that with so many share interest’s (including a fascination with Venice) that we would love to play a part in their special day, as we had already shot their pre wedding in and around venue we already had plenty of ideas in mind weather permitting.
Gaby started the day with the ladies at Woodlands capturing the fun and laughter as Anna Sawer from Barton Sawer hair and make and Rani from Beauty by Rani completed their beautiful look for the day (they all looked stunning!), Martin had the shorter part of the day as the gentleman prepared at the family home (hair and makeup took slightly less time as you can imagine but the top hats made up for this) before setting off the venue.
The weather gods had played nice today as the whole of the venue basked in golden sunshine, the Bride and Groom had hired a large picture frame to photograph the guests of the day in, so Martin set about enticing the arrivals in to place before the ceremony.
Following the emotional civil ceremony the Bride, Groom and Guests were led down to a beautiful glade where an additional outdoors ceremony also took place which mad for some interesting images of the light diffusing through the surrounding trees, we then made the short journey back to the grounds surrounding the ceremony room for a large groups shots with 2 confetti canons provided by the venue!, we then broke the party down into smaller groups shots before taking the bride and groom away for a short romantic session around the grounds of the hall itself.
Following the meal we re-joined the party for the speeches which were made all the more emotional by the video wishes from Angela’s family in South Africa and a personal congratulation from the South African rock band the Parlotones!, then on to the cake cutting (the cake was topped by models of Gary spinning the decks and Angela covering her ears!) and the first dance, we rounded of the day by Angela and Gary making crepes under the watchful eyes of Chris Hill from Vive La Crepe (we think that Angela won that one!).
Thank you both and we wish for a love never ending!
