What a crazy start to 2012 it has been. After a brilliant SWPP convention in London I am slowly catching up with blogging etc., before the weddings start again for another very busy year. For any photographers who attended my SWPP Masterclasses, you may well recognise these images. This was the absolutely wonderful wedding of Victoria and Max that was held at St Lawrence Church Lechlade followed by a grand marquee party in their family private home nearby.
It was a stunningly beautiful Autumn day in Lechlade (although a little bit windy perhaps). Victoria got ready at the house and walked with her father down to the church where Max and the rest of the congregation were waiting for her. Of course, she looked absolutely stunning, and Max looked very stylish too. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a groom look so proud as he watched his bride walk down the aisle.
After the ceremony the guests took the short stroll back to the house where a wonderful garden party and marquee reception had been set up. The wind played its part (well, that’s Autumn in England I guess) but all the guests had a great time in the garden before heading in for the speeches, meal and dancing. Victoria’s father made a very emotional speech, followed of course by Max and his best man making the guests laugh on many occasions. It was a really lovely set of speeches and guests slipped comfortably from their wedding breakfast into “dance mode” for the evening celebrations.
As I left, the dancing was in full swing and I’m fairly sure it lasted until the very early hours of the morning.
I had a lot of favourites from this wedding, many of which I have shared below. Whilst there were lots of guests, it was also very intimate with lots of love and laughter throughout. I’ve selected images here that I feel really sum up this wedding. Full of laughter, full of touch, and full of love.
As always, guests from the wedding can see the full selection here. Please feel free to leave a comment also.
