Sunshine, Sunflowers and Socks!

Tuesday 3rd October 2017

I love shooting at the Boathouse on Ormesby Broad. Tom and Amy's wonderful yellow themed wedding in August just suited the blue skies and water as the backdrop to their big day. They had opted for my Full Works package which enabled them to have two photographers so each could see the other's bridal preparation when they looked back at their wedding photographs.

A fry-up started the order of the day for Tom and his Groomsmen, before they headed back to the house to get ready. At home Tom and Amy adore their gorgeous cats Pumpkin and Tango, who, as they couldn't really come to the wedding, were represented by Tom's beautiful photographic cufflinks. The boys' homage to the yellow theme were a pair of bright yellow socks and a Sunflower in the lapel.

Whilst my assistant Kay was with the boys I headed to the Boathouse to meet up with Amy and her tribe. Bridesmaid Amanda used her professional make-up skills to create some stunning work on the bridal party, and everyone's hair was also beautifully styled. Amy was fitted into her stunning gown by the Bridesmaids, who were already kitted out in stunning yellow floating dresses. The tiny flower girls wore white with yellow accessories and page boy Jack had a gorgeous yellow cravat to go with his suit. Then we're off to the jetty to board the boat to the venue. I love seeing everyone sail away full of anticipation!

Back at the Boathouse a nervous Tom was greeting friends and family. Despite his nerves he had the hugest smile plastered all over his face! It was hot on the deck as everyone waited for Amy to arrive. Then the boat appeared and she soon floated down the aisle towards Tom waiting in the Gazebo. Amy's sister Lucy delivered a very emotional reading and there wasn't a dry eye in the house, including mine! As usual at the Boathouse we headed off to the boat again to cruise on the lake for their personal portraits session. I love this boat - it is so beautiful and always feels nice and stable. I hate boats and being able to move around safely on this one is a great help. Tom and Amy sipped champagne and kissed - alot! It was a tad windy to say the least, and keeping her veil in the boat was a bit of a challenge.

Once on dry land, and the group shots done, the wedding breakfast began. Everyone was amazed at the fabulous crocheted table centres, made by Amy, her Mum and her Nanny. Totally original and a real talking point. Speeches  done, everyone retired to the deck to enjoy the evening sun. A horrendous rain storm hammered down during the wedding breakfast... perfect timing as the sun was out again just in time to enjoy it. The little ones seem to have endless energy running around and around the Gazebo! Tom and Amy were thrilled when the family dogs arrived complete with yellow crocheted collars and leads! I think it really made their day.

I love photographing the first dance and the party afterwards, and I wasn't disappointed by Tom, Amy and their guests! Fab music and lots of fun ensued. We slipped away to set up a striking night time shot in the Gazebo for the bride and groom before we left them to party on down until the small hours.
