“Thanks again for our amazing wedding photos, we keep looking at the gallery and spotting new things, such a wonderful reminder of our day. We have so many favourites, and are so impressed by your skills at capturing so many special moments throughout the day.” Anna and Jonathan
I often get asked to photograph all sorts of different “preparation” activities. In the past I’ve photographed horse riding on the morning of the wedding, five a side football as well as more “traditional” activities like having hair and make up done and going to the pub! However, I can think of fewer better ways to start the day than with a full traditional English family breakfast which is exactly what Jonathan did as you can see in the first image below.
The rest of the day followed with me whizzing over to Anna to photograph her preparations followed by the wedding ceremony itself at St Andrew’s church in Chesterton and the reception at the wonderful St John’s College.
As ever I have selected a few of my favourite moments below. There’s also a little bit of chatty commentary between each one!
So, following a hearty breakfast…..some flamboyant tie tying! I just sort of love the colours and business of this picture…
Below: Over to Anna and hair and make up. I like the sense of actually being there in the room in this image and the reflection and interaction between Anna, her bridesmaid and page boy really make the image for me.
Below: “Wow! Look at you….!”
Below: There’s nearly always an image to be made from a sneaky excited glance at every wedding. This one was particularly great!
Below: Just mutual joy!
Below: I love little moments/stories like these. Jonathan showing off his fresh new wedding ring after the ceremony and then biting down to check it’s quality!
Below and below: Hidden little story telling moments. We all stopped for afternoon tea and of course cake eating is always amusing!
Below: On to St John’s…..
Below: Again a trio of little hidden story telling moments.
Below: And finally, speeches and cutting the cake.
