I started my day at the church, with arrivals of Malcolm and the Ushers, followed by the bridesmaids, then Emma herself. Emma and her father arrived in a vintage Rolls provided by Lawnswood cars. http://www.llcars.co.uk/
The ceremony was good to photograph as the church benefits from a fair amount of natural light and the Vicar and Verger are always very helpful to me.
Having photographed the ceremony and signing of the registers, we opted for some photos outside the front door of the church. We then rejoined the guests after a few photos adjacent to an ancient tree in the church cemetery and all gathered at the gate for a confetti moment, prior to our short trip to the reception venue.
The Langstone Hotel is a good location for photographs. It is a large hotel, situated in the beautiful coastal rural Hampshire countryside, surrounded by water (Chichester – a tidal harbor) and a marina in one direction. You can view the website of the hotel here: http://www.langstonehotel.co.uk/
You can contact Karen, the wedding coordinator at the venue on 02392 465 011 or email her via their website. You could also attend their wedding fair on 17th October 2010 and even meet ME there, as I will be exhibiting my work. You can also see my advert in their 2010 wedding brochure (not the on line version which is not up to date) – if you are considering getting married or holding a reception at the venue.
I stayed right up to the speeches, cake cutting, plus a first dance, as you can see from my sample photos.
The images will be available for viewing for Emma and Malcolm and their families soon after the wedding. Below are some of my favourites from this fantastic day.
