It was with great joy that I met these two amazing people and documented their wedding day with photographs. We had a great engagement shoot which calmed nerves and only a few weeks later in July their big day arrived. The wedding took place at St Andrews’s Church, Cobham and was followed by the reception at Woodlands Park Hotel, Cobham.
The bride had four bridesmaids who helped her with hair and make up. Esthers Mum helped her into her wedding gown and then walked her daughter the short distance to St Andrew’s Church. Esthers bridesmaids arranged her wedding dress and Cathedral length veil so she looked perfect walking down the aisle to her emotional groom. I photographed the ceremony catching candid, natural moments using natural light.
After the ceremony the newly weds left for Woodlands Park Hotel for their reception. I am the recommended wedding photographer for the Woodlands Park Hotel and enjoy using the luxurious hotel and its grounds for romantic, natural and documentary wedding photographs. The formal groups were photographed in the grounds and the Groom had fun posing and being picked up by his Grooms men, ushers and best friends. Esther sat elegantly on the swing hanging from the oak tree with her bridesmaids.
After the wedding breakfast and hilarious, heartfelt speeches Esther and James joined me in the lavender garden at Woodlands for their evening wedding portraits. The portraits were nautural, candid moments using the natural light of golden hour and we even got a silhouette as the sun went down.
