Takin’ Five … and a great wedding!

Phew!  I am now officially on holiday.  This is great and can’t wait for a two week chill out, but making sure that everything that needed doing has been done has been no mean feat, spent the week racing against the clock, and I’m still racking my brains making sure I haven’t forgotten anything.  Yep, the lead-up to taking a vacation can be so stressful you REALLY need a holiday by the time it comes around! And when you get back, you spend the first few days playing catch up, eh? But I guess it’s worth it.

Will take a few pictures (of course!) as we head out and about – our cameras are always at the ready, and hopefully find time to post a blog or two.

In all the rush, I haven’t had time to blog any pics from this amazing wedding we photographed in Winslow almost two weeks ago. We travelled up on the Friday so we could go to the rehearsal and meet the vicar etc, so we know where we are allowed to stand and take the photos – which in this instance turned out to be in the vestry! As it happens, I had a reasonable view from there (once we had sorted out the issue of the flowers, which had been placed plonk donk between the bride and groom and my lens!) But all the more reason to attend the rehearsal, so any such problems can be resolved before the actual day itself.  As you can see from the pic – not much of a view of the bride and groom!

ImageWe stayed the night at the glorious Horwood House Hotel, where the bridal party were also staying, so we could be on hand first thing Saturday morning to take lots of shots of Kirsty and her family and bridesmaids getting ready. The views of the garden from the window of her suite were fantastic and needless to say featured in one or two of the pictures!

ImageImageWhen we got to the church to take the groom shots, the aforementioned flowers had been moved back again, so first job was to lift them back out of the way, and try not to knock them flying in the process (fortunately managed not to!)

So a much better view!ImageThe new Mr and Mrs!

A wish come true for the lovely bride – with horse, Teddy (ahem, don’t be fooled by the calmness feel of this picture!)

And some idyllic spots to take romantic shots of the newlyweds.

A fun wedding day for sure – congratulations to the happy couple!
