After our engagement shoot with Stuart and Hayley, Ben and I were really looking forward to their wedding. The weather was spectacular. My day started rather slowly which was great. Ben was due to spend the morning with Hayley whilst I was with Stuart. We are often asked who we prefer to go with in the morning and we often struggle to answer. There are positives to both. On this day however i was due to meet Stuart about two hours after Ben was due to meet Hayley, so I had two hours to kill before starting. Stoke Rochford is a great place to kill time. So I called Katy my girlfriend and she came to meet me and we sat in the beautiful gardens and wandered around to the sound of bird singing. It was great. By the time I was due to start shooting I couldn’t have been more chilled. A great way to start the day.
So to the wedding! Like I said before I was with Stuart during his preparations and the atmosphere in his hotel room was really special. It was a kind of nervous excitement that was further emphasised when the sound of the piper began to wash over the grounds of Stoke Rochford. I love being around at those part of the day, it is part of the privilege that we have being wedding photographers. I could waffle on even more talking about this wedding but I will leave it to our photos to explain the rest.
