"And in her smile, I see something more beautiful than the stars"
Beth Revis - Across the Universe
A rainy day at the beginning of October saw the dawn of the wedding day of Jessica and David. I'd met the happy couple, (plus their new kitten), a few weeks previously to talk through the day, and I have to say that Jessica is one of the most laid back brides I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I was really looking forward to capturing their day in pictures.
Our day started off with a morning of fun and laughter at the home of Jessica's parents. This was a real family affair, withMothers, daughters, sisters, brothers, cousins, Aunts and Uncles all adding to the excitment. Not to mention the brides Father, who I have to say makes a mean ham and tomato roll!
The pouring rain may have meant that we didn't get to take advantage of the wonderful gardens, but it certainly didn't manage to dampen the spirits inside the house. One of Jessicas cousins did the girls hair, while one of her oldest friends arrived to do the bridal make up. I love this type of busy bridal preparation, the morning ent by in the blink of an eye.
After a few final shots of Jessica and her bridesmaids getting ready, it was off to St Peters church in Frimley, where we met up with an inceasingly nervous David, his Best Men and the arriving guests. The ceremony went without a hitch, although I don't think the brides Father will ever be forgiven for accidentally leaving the bouquet at home! Oops!
The sun broke through the clouds just in time for the new Husband and Wife to exit the church, then it was off to Camberley Cricket Club for the afternoon and evening reception. We made the most of the sunshine and headed out for some photographs of Jessica and David, before Jessica insisted they both try out the boucy castle! Did I mention how much fun these two are?!
The day progressed, with a delicious meal served from picnic hampers containing some intruiging parcels, wrapped in brown paper and tied up with string, some incredibly animated speeches, the cutting of the rugby themed cake and the emotions of the first dance.
This wedding absolutly flew by, and before we knew it, Louise and I were packing up our cameras and leaving the newlyweds and their guests to dance the night away.
Here is the story of their day...
