The start of the wedding photography
Elspeth & Luke’s wedding was located at Easthampstead Park on a very rainy and misty day but as I was only starting from the ceremony most of the fog had lifted by then. Elspeth was already dressed and eager to go when I arrived but I couldn’t resist some quick photos of the girls before we headed of to the ceremony.
Luke was looking pretty nervous on the day and I was warned by others that he was very camera shy at the best of times, but he was very quick to admit that to me on my approach (even sending a sneaky text to the girls saying he’s going to hide from me) but little did luke know I was with the girls when he sent the text so I knew of his plan and that just made me more determing to get some awesome shots of him to conquer his fear of the camera.
The rain didn’t let up much so all the group shots had to be captured inside but thats not a problem at this venue with there stunning staircase managing to fit all 70 guests on and all in shot. After the group shots the bride and groom set off with myself to captur some portraits from around the manor. The fog had started to come back in but the scenery looking stunning as the dear’s were coming out of the woods walking around near the back patio area.
It was time for food so I gave them all a break from the camera and sat down myself to tuck in to what I could only call a monster bit of steak !! well I was full and it was time for the speeches which was a bit over my head as it was to do with doctor who (im not much of a doctor fan but the brides parents are) it gave for some laughter amongst the guests. The time had come to what I believe Luke was dreading the most and thats the first dance !! but I must admit he pulled it off nicely.
The Games Room
What a superb touch to add to your wedding reception, they have a room dedicated to games from a nintendo wii to a football table so every time i needed to find the men (and Luke’s favourites hiding place) off to the games room i headed. By well in to the evening the girls were overtaking the games having loads of fun joining in with the men and showing then how its all done.
