It always bowls us over when a client contacts us far in advance to secure us for their wedding date, and we were delighted to hear from Katie who had seen a piece on us in a magazine she worked on some two years before the wedding, and decided we were the photographers for her. Meeting Katie and Matthew, we knew this relaxed couple would have a fun wedding reflecting their personalities that we really wanted to be part of, and we weren’t disappointed on the day!
A gorgeous yellow colour scheme was perfect for the bright April day of the wedding, and stunning flowers by our favourite florist Flowers by Mooi really stamped spring on this wedding. Gorgeous accessories such as Katie’s bright yellow LK Bennett Shoes, fully visible thanks to her stunning 50s style Coast wedding dress, and the funky yellow sunglasses sported by bride and bridesmaids really made this a fantastically bright celebration – you couldn’t help but smile right from the moment we arrived to cover the couple’s preparations. As well as parents, friends, bridesmaids, we also had three gorgeous doggies looking bemused at all the fuss over at Katie’s mum Delia’s house. We then all headed to Cambridge Registry Office for the wedding ceremony. The couple chose to walk up the aisle together which really set the tone for the day as this fantastic couple committed their lives to each other.
Katie, Matthew, their family and friends were determined to have fantastic fun and didn’t let us down as we boarded the red wedding bus to their Burwash Manor wedding reception. This was our first Burwash Wedding and we have wanted to shoot there for a while, especially as they are one of the closest venues to us. The sun shone brightly highlighting the splashes of yellow as we set up a shower of yellow confetti over the couple and their guests. We had some much fun as the group enjoyed posing for our cameras, a rarity these days with so many people telling us they hate being photographed!
Some highly emotional speeches followed an amazing meal by another supplier we recommend, the fantastic Puddini at the Deli, and then it really was party time! Katie and Matthew had booked our all day coverage package, so we were there to cover the whole story of the day. The bride and groom were on the busy dance floor for most of the evening and when not there our photo booth studio was incredibly busy – processing these images was hilarious, this group were so much fun! We absolutely love the dance floor images though, a true testament to how good coloured lights can look and make a real difference to the atmosphere of your party – we would highly recommend it.
We wish Katie & Matthew a lifetime of love and laughter and thank them for choosing us to capture such a fantastic wedding!
