I have known Dan and Danielle for a few years now, I first met them when I photographed Danielles best friends wedding (Maid of Honour Natalie) and from there two family weddings Gemma and Ryan and Ashleigh and Sam. So naturally when they called me to say they were getting married I was really happy and got them booked straight in.
The wedding day started with me arriving at The Fennes two and a half hours before the ceremony. The Bride was in the room getting ready with everyone, the prosecco was flowing nicely. I met Danielle’s mum Anne.. what a lovely woman and she certainly knows how to pose for a photo.. I soon realised this is who the Bride gets it from. I also met jade who was a bridesmaid.. what a great girl and brilliant bridesmaid.
This wedding was fantastic from start to finish.. the detail that went into it was second to none. Daniel arrived with Billy (his cousin/best mate/best man) in the most beautiful white Phantom Rolls Royce. All his family and friends were there to watch him arrive. It was so nice I know and have become friends with a lot of their families. I took some pictures with the car and then left the boys and headed back up to the room to see the Bride.
She was now having her make up finished off and looked stunning.. her eyes sparkling and her make up immaculate. She put her lipstick on and then I took some natural pictures. Danielle then got into her dress and looked Fabulous.
I then went down and set up for the ceremony and saw Dan..looking very dapper and slightly nervous. Their little girl Ruby gave her mum away.. what a beautiful thing to do… Daniel certainly looked blown away by seeing his beautiful wife and daughter walking towards him down the aisle.
The ceremony finished with a big kiss which must have lasted between 45 seconds and a minute.. they then signed the certificate. Dan and Danielle then went into one of the reception rooms to greet their guests as the rain had started and we couldn’t get outside. 10 minutes later the rain slowed down, the wind blew and the rain stopped. The sun came out and we went out to take some nice shots with the Rolls Royce. Ruby then went for a little drive in the car with Danielle and when they got back I took the family shots.
I then took the couple round the grounds and used the tree trunk, bridge and gardens. The Fennes Bridge is lovely and I moved my position so that I could get some beautiful backlit shots with the sun high behind. Ruby then ran up and kissed her daddy. Anthony from spotlight was filming the wedding and I kept hearing him say “lovely” so I knew it was looking good through the video too…. this is whats great when you work with each other regularly. Anthony and I know how to work as a team and are known by couples as The Dream Team. It really does show when you work with a professional and is very important. Read this.
We then went through and the bride and groom sat down for the meal. The speeches then started and began with the father of the bride Micky, then Anne, Daniel, Billy and then finishing with The Bride. The speeches were all brilliant and this is always a great part of the evening. I then took the couple out into the gardens and did a few early evening shots just before the light dropped. We then went in and set up for the cake cutting and first dance.
Strictly dancefloors set up the dance floor… the LOVE Letters were illuminated it looked amazing. The bride and groom ran through the confetti shot and cut their wedding cake. Everyone surrounded the dance floor and they had their first dance as Mr and Mrs Jewitt.
