Ami and I have been counting down the days for this special day too arrive. It was finally on our door step and it was time to help celebrate the wedding of Rusty & Rob at The Limes Country Lodge Hotel in Earlswood, Warwickshire. We headed up early morning to capture the guys preparation and it was a rather early start for us both, but well worth it. I had personally known Rusty since my childhood as we grew up enjoying our youth at Portsmouth Players but sadly lost contact as our individual careers took us away from Portsmouth. When the guys asked us to photograph their wedding, we jumped at the chance and knew we were in for a treat.
From the word go it was apparent that the theme of the wedding was the colours of the Gay Pride flag. Everywhere you turned their were splashes of red, orange, green, yellow, blue & purple. Here are some images we captured of all the little details…
We started the morning preparation with the guys and their four best men at the hotel, things started calm but as the morning unfolded the nerves started to appear….. from the best men! The music was on full volume and it was like being taken back to a Euro Vision end of show party! It was such a fun morning and something that will stick in our heads for years to come, we didn’t stop laughing! Here are some images we captured in the morning of the gents preparation…
The morning build up with the guys was full of fun, laughter and naughty innuendos not to mention just a few beverages, but we expected nothing less. The banter between everyone of the guys was just hilarious to watch and listen too and the love between Rusty & Rob was just so infectious. We knew that the silliness was soon to end as the realisation was soon to set in and each of the guys involved would have to put on their serious face and walk down the aisle. The ceremony was just beautiful to witness and it truly was a honour to be there.
After the ceremony we headed off with Rusty & Rob with their best men in tow and created some images of the lovely newlyweds.
Ami & I would just like to take this moment to thank both Rusty & Rob for letting us be a part of their special day. We had so much fun and spending time with you both. Your crazy best men, are individuals we will never forget and we believe we have made friends for life. Your day was full of burst of colour and smiles all round and here’s to many more years of happiness and the journey you both have embarked on.
But ladies & gents, there’s plenty more images for you guys to see below, so please sit back, relax and enjoy the show
Lots of love
Chris & Ami
Together, Forever, Believe & Achieve
