April 29th 2011 will be know to everyone as the day the Royal couple got married. But to a special couple Natalie and Stu, it will be known to them as their wedding day! One good thing about getting married on the same day as William and Kate, is that you will never be able to forget your anniversary. We travelled from Rugby to Newmarket, to a venue called The Jockey Club. Situated in the centre of Newmarket the Jockey Club comes with grand history. As soon as you enter through the gates you see the building and grounds which are beautiful. I spent the morning with Natalie, her daughter Erin and sister Michelle while getting ready for her wedding. I was lucky enough to be able to spend some time with Natalie to get some lovely photos of her on her own and also with Erin, before the service. Not every wedding I shoot has that much time, so I took full advantage of getting some posed and relaxed photos.
It was only a month ago when I last did a wedding at Dunchurch Park Hotel and oh what a difference a month can make. Today felt like the start of the wedding season for me with the warm weather and bright sunshine. Today I photographed the wedding of Nadia and Danial who I met over a year ago. With them living in Cheltenham, it made it a little hard to meet up before the big day but we managed fine with emails going back and forth. The mood of the day could not have been any better with the girls getting ready at Nadia’s mum and dad’s house and the boys at Dunchurch Park. The service was held in the great hall with a surprise guest of a piper to welcome guests in and to walk the bride down the aisle.
After the service there were drinks served over-looking the grounds of the hotel which is where the group photos took place. I must admit that this was a complete joy in doing. We had lots of time and everyone loved being outside in the sunshine. The day went by so quickly for us but not as quickly for Nadia and Danial. We stayed ’till the first dance and got some fantastic photos of the bride and groom and the bride’s father! Bob Marley – brilliant choice. Have an amazing time in Kenya and see you on your return.
