Fawsley Hall was the beautiful venue for Rob and Michelle’s wedding back in August. A big hats off to them for being so happy, when it poured with rain all day.
This must be my most challenging wedding of my career to date, due to tight timings and terrible weather. However, it shows that I can still create wonderful memories even when the elements are against us.
Michelle’s bridal prep was taken at her home. Bridal prep consists of shots of the bride getting ready and all the details that makes their day so special.
Rob had requested that I spend an hour with him, his groomsmen and family at the pub before the ceremony. Here I managed some of the group shots he had requested, easing up the tight schedule once we got to Fawsley Hall.
The ceremony was held at Greens Norton church, where umbrellas managed to shelter the beautiful Michelle from the pouring rain.
How Michelle managed to keep her dress and hair by Kerry Anne Hair perfect throughout the day is beyond me. But I’m glad she did as she looked absolutely stunning.
After the ceremony we needed to get to Fawsley Hall for the group photos before their early wedding breakfast.
We literally had 30 minutes to find and guide 60 people into 10 different groups shots before the speeches started.
This is no mean feat!
Once the meal was over, we went straight into the Bride and Grooms creative photographs. Umbrellas and big smiles were both in attendance, before I quickly set up for the cake cutting and first dance.
Once the first dance was over, we got some candid dancing shots while the Blue Rinse Band did their stuff.
Then I felt that I needed to give Rob and Michelle a little something extra due to the weather. So, my assistant and I decided that staying behind for a few night-time creative shots would be fabulous…
The icing on the ‘wedding’ cake to end their special day!
Thank you to Rob and Michelle for letting me play such a big part in your day. I am thrilled you loved your photos so much and I wish you all the best for the future.
