All of the love and smiles were present in this wedding, a rainy morning soon transformed into warm sunshine and an awesome day at Homme House.
Driving over from Hereford in the morning; cue the rain. Damn. Lucky for me the morning prep was all inside Homme House so once I arrived I did the usual important first part of the day stuff and got a coffee. For me the morning of a wedding isn't all photos and shooting, on the contrary this is the part of the day where I take the least amount of photosfor me I like to get a cup (or 3) of coffee p, meet everyone, get settled and shoot a few frames of the goings on as I chat to the family.
Then the day starts picking up speed, in between shooting the details of the tables and listening to the father of the bride show his pianist skills this soon move forward and before my 4th cup of coffee the bride is in her dress and it's time to head to the church.
This was a great setup for me as the church was 5 minutes down the road from the house, I got there met up with Tom and the groomsmen and carried in shooting, the ceremony was in a great church with a very friendly vicar and waiting outside afterwards was a surprise Horse and Carriage that heather had no idea about. we shot some confetti and I just let the people flow forward and share their love with the couple, of me this moment right after the wedding is the most important, you've just got married and here are all of your important people meeting you for the first time as a married couple.
Off went the carriage back to the house as did me and all the guests, I fuller myself with cereal bars and sports drinks and was ready to crack on with the rest of the day. We did a few small groups just outside the main house for which the sky was overcast (great) then the sky opened up after and the sun came out (greater).
The evening had garden games, vintage DJ, the food, some great speeches and a fantastic impromptu set by the groom and friends in the library! Soon the dancing kicked in and people threw some shapes and more food came around, the cake was cut and the day for me was all done.
Thank you for having me there guys, it was a great day.
