I started my day at the church, with arrivals of Mike and his Best Man and the Ushers, followed by bridesmaids, then Sadie herself. Sadie and her Father arrived in a Black and White Daimler provided by Lawnswood Limousines. http://www.llcars.co.uk/
Sadie and Mike and members of their bridal party were fantastic to photograph as they were all very relaxed and clearly looking forward to a FUN day. They planned no formal ‘group photos’ at the church and just for later at the Royal Marines Museum. 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 at this church.
Having photographed the ceremony and signing of the registers, we opted for some guard of honor and confetti shots outside the front door of the church. We then rejoined the guests after a few photos and all gathered at the Green Routemaster Bus for the trip to the reception venue.
The Royal Marines Museum is a wedding photographer and couples dream as it has extensive attractive grounds outside and some great locations and space inside too – with a fantastic formal staircase and beautiful rooms. If that wasn’t enough – it’s only a stones throw from the seafront / beach in Southsea and not far from some of my favourite places in Old Portsmouth for photography. You can contact Zeenat Turner at the venue on 02392 819 385 xt 241 or 249 or email her: firstname.lastname@example.org
On the day, I worked alongside County Caterers who I meet regularly at a weddings and corporate events throughout Portsmouth and Hampshire and I can certainly recommend them also as they often feed me too - THANK YOU!! http://www.countycaterers.co.uk/
I was also assisted by the very able and helpful Master of Ceremonies: Philip Gardner: http://www.toastmasterphilipgardner.co.uk/
I stayed right up to the first dance and Sadie’s Father sang a song for the couple to dance to, followed by a band for everyone, on this occasion!!
The images will be available for viewing for Sadie and Mike and their families very soon. I try and allow my blog images to reflect an insight into my approach and interests in photography and these are some of my personal favourites from this fantastic day.
