This next wedding was a real treat for me to be a part of. It was a bit of a last minute one but I was delighted when Rachel (from Defining Radiance makeup) called and asked if I may be free to photograph her ceremony for her. Thankfully, I was available (must be fate) and I got to be a part of this intimate day.
I started with Rachel, her parents and her daughters getting ready which was brilliant (even their cat made an appearance). Rachel’s girls (Lucy and Ellie) are lovely and a real credit to her, so polite and friendly and as beautiful as their mum. The girls had corsages rather than bouquet’s which were very pretty and lovely Navy and White striped dresses. It was then on to Stowmarket Registry Office for their intimate ceremony (less than 25 of us so only I photographed this day and David got a day off!). This always holds a special place in my heart as it’s where David and I got married many years ago now. Since our wedding though it has recently been redecorated and looks very plush! Paul looked handsome in his Navy suit and his son Jack (another really nice teenager!) was the bestman.
After the ceremony we went outside and took their group shots in the grounds round the back of the office (the front is beautiful but the mulberry tree had dropped all it’s mulberry’s and you definitely don’t want to get these on a white dress!). As this was such an intimate day they didn’t want the rest of it photographed which I completely understand so I left them at this stage to go on for their meal. Earlier before the getting ready though I’d had a peep in the village hall where their evening reception was to be held and it looked amazing with a lot of effort gone in. The cake was unusual with stripes and a bow and Ellie had made a flying saucer sweet tree! Here’s just a small look at their day
