Chris and Gemma
Sometimes you feel it in your gut. You know this day is going to be special and it's not because of any one particular thing its a combination of things. Like a BLT for instance. Perfect in every way! Anyway I'm rambling as usual and the thing is that i knew that Gemma and Chris's wedding was going to be one of those ones (the ones where as a photographer you're possibly more excited than the couple themselves).
It was a lovely fresh spring April morning. The sun was shining and the weather looked set to last all day. The dress was a beautiful muted rose pink and possibly the most unique I've ever seen and despite a small mishap with hanging the dress on the curtain pole to catch the light (thanks to Gemma's dad for his awesome DIY skills) we managed to capture the incredible detail in the dress.
Girls set about getting things done and having their hair and makeup done by the beautiful Katie Porch from Doll Face as well as having the odd cheeky glass of some very special champagne (cleverly emblazoned with the images of the sisters all together). With dad supplying a constant stream of toast and coffee we got to work!
The bridesmaids looked radiant in their beautiful blue full length dresses with the perfect lighting conditions in the front room we captured all the details.
Cut to Chris, who's best men had trouble finding their shoes!!
All joking aside the guys had a great laugh texting and dressing at the same time (don't try this at home kids!)
The dress was completed by a beautiful lace shawl. Gemma looked awesome and as we gathered in the lounge, dad and mum looked incredibly proud.
The church looked amazing and the bride was delivered in perfect vintage style to the church.
Side by side in front of family and friends taking their vows, they became man and wife.... and then off to the new house.
I have to say that I've been extremely lucky everytime I shoot a wedding at this venue with the great weather.
The great surroundings and the fantastic building make it a perfect venue for a wedding.
Big thanks to both the bride and groom for allowing me to photograph their wonderful big day and congratulations on becoming husband and wife.
