I met Chris when I was working at The Alnwick Garden when I was an undergraduate. We worked in the car park together and had a great laugh.
Ten years later and we were both back at The Alnwick Garden, he was marrying his fiance Heather, and I was their photographer. I've always meant to do a little blog of a wedding, showing a few of the photos that I take and how a couple's special day progresses.
My morning strated by visiting Chris' parents house where he and his best men were getting ready.
Photos of the rings early on is important, you don't want to have to ask the Bride and Groom to take them off after they're married!
It was then on to see Heather, who was having her make-up done, ready for getting into her dress.
Then it was time for some more photos of the groomsmen at the venue.
Then Heather arrived for the ceremony.
After the ceremony we had agreed to go to the pastures in front of Alnwick Castle which is only a short drive from the Garden. I have wanted to get photos from in here and Heather was a great sport and packed her wellies to go. I love landscapes, and I really like to put brides and grooms in a setting, rather than shooting close up and candidly all day.
Just after I got this photo it started to rain! Heather and Chris made it back to the car dry, but I got SOAKED!!!
We returned to the Garden for the Wedding Breakfast.
Some absent guests were present in more than just spirit...
We then got some group photos
Then Chris, Steve and Matt played on the tractors!
Heather and Chris then took a walk around the Garden with me to get some more couple photos. Having worked at the Garden when I was a student means I know the Garden as well as anyone which meant I had lots of ideas for locations.
