...early February was beautiful! Very cold but the light was fantastic!
Lisa and Kordel's wedding was beautiful too!! Lisa made a stunning bride, I knew she would as she's naturally beautiful but once she had her Maggie Sottero wedding dress on and matching veil, complete with Audrey hepburn hair she looked absolutely stunning!
The day started off with Kordel and best man Chris at Chris's house for 'mock' getting ready shots! Yep, they put their suits on only to take them off for their journey to Cooling Castle Barn where they would get re-dressed!! This enabled me to capture some shots for the album before I headed off to their house to capture the Lisa and the ladies getting ready. The morning ended in a bit of a rush which was a shame as it meant we couldn't get any shots at home with the bride, her bridesmaids, parents etc but we had the shots we needed for the album.
So, onto beautiful Cooling Castle Barn...I always love working here, and especially in the beautiful winter sunshine!
Lisa arrived, the guests assembled and the ceremony took place.
Ceremony over, the guests all enjoyed reception drinks whilst the bride and groom disappeared of in the gorgeous Rolls Royce Phantom for a few minutes together.
I met them outside for pictures when they got back which is where we were treated to some gorgeous light!! I couldn't stop taking pictures!!
After the bride and groom pictures we went onto start shooting the list of groups. Everyone braved it for the bigger groups so we could take advantage of the sunshine.
Soon it was time for guests to enter the beautifully decorated barn for where they were treated to a yummy three course meal followed by some heartfelt speeches.
Soon after, it was time for everyone to relax after dinner whilst the band set up ready for the evening party to commence. During this time we had a request from Lisa to take pictures of some L.O.V.E sparklers however it didn't quite go to plan, firstly we lost the L so we started with E.V.O (lol!) but then we found the missing L by which time the others had burnt quite quickly....anyway, we got a few shots just not what I had envisaged!
Next it was time for the first dance and the party which started with the fantastic band Under The Covers I left after the second dance which was a shame as I was quite enjoying the band!!
Here are a couple of pictures from the day...more to follow!
