When I put my blog site live it was to give Bride & Groom’s as much of an idea about my photography as me personally. And it’s worked pretty good so far … I know that I’m not everyone’s cup of tea … I don’t do bridezillas, or weddings commandeered by FOB’s with an Excel sheet and 2-hours of group shots pefectly posed with everyone’s feet at a 42.5-degrees is definitely not my bag. If I come away from a wedding (obviously with a bunch of fab-tastic images) and guests are thinking I’m a family friend with a couple of fancy cameras, then I consider that a job well done.
Haley & Giles were no exception and when I first caught up with them we were talking everything but wedding photography – there was just so many levels we were on the same wave length … and I’d suggest to any B&G, if you connect with your photographer you’re half way there to choosing the right person to photograph your wedding.
Anyway, the day started with quite a drive from Warsash to Wiltshire but that gave me time to think of some photos that were going to be different to the last wedding I photographed at Beechfield House.
Giles was getting ready at his parent’s place. All was calm on the face of things … but the surface was scratched and big sis’ found the emotions getting the better of her just as she was leaving and the best man suddenly found himself smoking for England as he was running his speech through his head.
Over at Beechfield House Hayley was putting it together with her bridesmaids and her boys. Strawberry’s and champers were on the menu and the atmosphere was exactly what it should be on a girl’s wedding day.
Hopefully the photos below will tell the rest of the story …
