I was blessed to be able to photograph Mark & Kirstys big day that was full of belly laughs, a lot of love, style & personality !
They chose me a few months before and it was great to get to know them better on a pre wedding shoot on Haldon - it totally made them more open in front of the camera and all they did was laugh. Great start :)
I joined Mark at Exeter Golf & Country club midday to capture the Groom and all the guests arriving - I do love this time with the guys as normally I am with the Bridal party - you get to see all the nerves kicking in PLUS I love to photograph the Grooms attire, I am so used to dresses and all pretty things that it is a nice change when I can shoot tweed, brogues, buttonholes and waistcoats !
The ceremony was simply beautiful, joined by their very nearest and dearest ( and their two gorgeous boys ) the vows were heartfelt and full of smiles and lots of affection.
Now...I was sooo impressed with the styling that went into Kirsty and Marks reception. Cake hoops, not to mention the stunning naked cake as well, the flowers, the bows, the table decor and the doughnut wall, personalised confetti - they had really put their all into producing a beautiful day.
I can really say I have never laughed as much at a wedding than I did on this day - Lisa the maid of honour contributed to this on the 'romantic walk around the grounds' ... We had a lot of fun early evening with smoke bombs and near misses with red wine :D
A stunning day, a pleasure to photograph - I love my job.
Congratulations to you both, here is a little preview
