Finally the day was upon us, it was time for Danny & Jade to tie the knot and become the new Mr & Mrs Petzing. The date seemed like a long time coming but the wait was well worth it. This was going to be extra special as Danny & I went to school together and I knew that the day was going to be full of familiar faces and a great laugh.
They had chosen to have their ceremony at The Portsmouth Cathedral which is a amazing landmark in Portsmouth’s history and gives a special day that extra wow factor. We had met with the couple on a few occasions at wedding fairs and also at their family home, which Jade had Danny working on every little detail as it all had to be perfect for the photography. When we arrived at the house in the morning, it was like a show room and perfect to capture the morning unfold. We started the day with Jade and her bridesmaids, there was everything from laughs, banter and nerves and it was a pleasure to be apart of. Here are a few images we captured in the morning as the preparation unfolded…
Danny planned to meet his rabble of merry men down Gunwharf Quays for the “lads” breakfast. I knew this was going to be a boisterous affair and they didn’t disappoint. A few terms come to mind when I think of the morning antics, Geezers, Lads, Cushty and a few other words I can’t really post on a blog. But yeah you are thinking along the right lines… ha.
Here are a few images we captured of the gents whilst they wined and dined in the sun, as you can see it was a very chilled morning…
Back to the girls we go and by this point in the day it was time for me to start shouting some orders. As you can imagine, one man in amongst a lot of ladies shouting orders, is pure suicide, so I’ve really got to choose my timing right. Only kidding the girls were great and completely running to schedule……..
Here are some images we captured of Jade as she took her final steps and the donning of the dress. With final details being applied by the lovely Georgia Leworthy on Jade’s makeup, everything was coming together nicely…
I love weddings at The Portsmouth Cathedral as they really do have that grand feeling about them. It must be such a special feeling of the bride as she walks down the long aisle and takes in everything around her. As she takes them final steps towards her husband to be and all those many months of planning final all come together and this is the moment she’s been waiting for, to become the new Mrs Petzing. After the ceremony they headed to Moneyfield Sport & Social Club to party into the early hours.
Ami and I would just like to take this moment to say a huge thank you to Danny & Jade for choosing us to be such a huge part of their special day. You have such an amazing family and friend group and you guys sure know how to party.
Don’t leave quite yet thou as there are plenty more wow factor images below for the lovely couple for your viewing pleasure. Here’s to many years of happiness to come and to the new Mr & Mrs Petzing.
Lots of love
Chris & Ami
