What an absolute pleasure to photograph Alex and Richard’s special day in Nuneaton. We felt honoured that they actually changed the date of their wedding so that we could photograph it and we are so happy they did as it was a really special day full of smiles and laughter.
There was a bit of a theme around Haribo sweets due to the proposal and even the wonderful vicar Kelly based her talk around them! The morning was spent with each of them getting ready. Kev and I had a great time. Alex had her done at Shine Hairdressers in Nuneaton and Michelle Hibberd was at home to do the make up which looked fab. When it came to getting her dress on from 2 Have and 2 Hold in Kidderminster Alex started to feel the emotion. Her Mum put her into the dress and added the final touches of jewellery and she was ready to leave in her car from Finishing Touches.
Flowers looked fab too. Alex’s Mum had done an amazing job as had Terry with the flowers in the Church. After a great service full of more emotion and laughter we got some photos outside and captured some wonderful family moments. The guests all left and we had some time with the newly weds for their couple portraits both outside the Church in Nuneaton and then over to the park. Then it was back to Ambleside for the reception. The room looked fantastic with chair covers and sashes from Twinkles and Tiaras. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun all day and there were great speeches with a little faux part which I don’t think Richard will be allowed to forget! 🙂
Food was provided by Greenaways Caterers and went down extremely well. We had an opportunity to take the bridal party off for a few more photos after the meal. The sun was shining brightly at this point so all the guests were able to get outside too. Great skies made for a few lit shots of the couple too. Then it was in for the cutting of the Cheese Cake from Sparkenhoe Farm and then dancing to Scream Entertainment for the rest of the night.
It really was a fab day and we loved spending it with this great couple, their friends and family. I have to admit to a bit of emotion as we left them to party the night away!
