Tess and Andrew Wedding at Horton Grange – 12th May 2012
Tess and Andrew chose a wonderful venue in Horton Grange to hold a very intimate wedding.
Tess was getting ready in the room over looking the gardens when we arrived. She was radiant, full of smiles waiting to get married to the man she loves. Not a hint of nerves in sight. We took some detail shots of the dress, shoes, hair and flowers before leaving Tess and her bridesmaids to finalize their preparations.
Andrew, his attendants and family soon arrived. We took some pre wedding shots of the guys in suits and then stepped back while he mingled with his guests. This provided us a great opportunity to capture candids without disturbing the flow of the congratulations.
Everyone in place in the ceremony room, it was time for Tess to make her entrance. She did so in style, looking absolutely stunning. Andrew was overwhelmed. The ceremony was full of love and readings from special friends made it a memorable occasion.
Unbeknown to Tess and Andrew, there was a surprise for them during the signing of the register. Pre arranged with the key board player, and on his lead, the guests all sang a rendition of “Fly me to the Moon”. It was a magical moment.
We pride ourselves on getting wonderful sequence shots. During Tess and Andrew’s wedding there’s a beautiful set of shots following Tess’s mum. We caught the look of love from mother to daughter; the emotion welling up that then spills over and she wipes away a tear.
Tess and Andrew, followed by their guests spilled out into the gardens for drinks and canapés. We capture this time candidly then when appropriate start gathering the key members together for some formal group shots.
The wedding party was a fabulous crowd to work with. The ease at which we covered the formal photography was all down to them, and the images we captured perfectly reflect the day.
We always like to take our couple away from the main party for some individual shots and did so with Tess and Andrew using the back drop of the pavilion. We’d done their pre wedding photo shoot earlier in the year with them and knew they were not too keen on kissy shots. However, come the wedding day it was a different story and they were more than happy to be photographed having a smooch.
Tess and Andrew are a stylish, glamorous couple and their wedding day was a joy to behold, and a pleasure to be part of.
