Before each wedding, I send the bride and groom a questionnaire gathering the little details that will ensure I capture their day perfectly for them. One of the questions is "How would you describe your wedding in three words?" I knew I was going to have a great time when I read Kim & James' answer: Vintage, Relaxed and Fun. That's exactly how I would describe their wedding, and I hope they'd agree that the photography was relaxed and fun. I love that the photos are filled with big smiles, laughter and giggles.
Not only were the bride and groom lots of fun, they're a pretty talented pair. Their day was filled with lots of special touches, much of it hand-picked or hand-made by the couple - from vintage tea cup favours, to a seven-foot photo booth crafted by the groom, to the amazing four-tiered wedding cake and dozens of cupcakes all made by the bride herself.
The mother of the bride also got in on the act, creating the amazing bouquet and flower arrangements.
There were lots more unique touches to the day: Kim wore the most amazing shoes, and I loved the purple camper van - by the name of Dotty (from The Cake Revolution) - that took the bride and groom from their ceremony at Easthampstead to the reception at the Ely Hotel; and before and after dinner, guests were entertained by a magician (Mike Stoner).
Thanks Kim & James for choosing me to capture your special day - it really was fun!
