So I first met Andrea & Mark at The Royal Beach Hotel wedding fair which seems so long ago but the time flies and before you know it, the day is upon us. The lovely couple had decided to hold the full day at The Royal Beach Hotel and it really is the perfect venue for the perfect day.
It was clear from the word go that there was no bridezilla at this wedding, but more like a groomzilla! Mark really had his claws into this project and it was a pleasure to be a part of such a finely organised event. It was definitely a team effort thou and the venue looked stunning. We started the day with the girls in the bridal suite at the hotel with Andrea as she started her preparation to becoming the new Mrs Hutchings. Here are a few images I captured of the lovely bride to be in the morning…
One of my favourite wedding days is when the preparation, ceremony and reception is all in one place as it saves my skinny legs the ache of all that walking! So I head a few floors down to meet up with Mark and his team of men, who by this point were starting to get into their suits and apply the finishing touches to their hair and in Mark’s case, beautiful trimmed beard. We had a great laugh and here are some of the images we created…
Back up in the elevator and into the mayhem I go…. By this point everything was starting to become real for Andrea and it was nearly time to get into her beautiful dress, which was from Creatiques in Southsea, which we would highly recommend for not only a fantastic bespoke service but also some of the most stunning dresses in the South Coast.
The time was running away from us and after a few little hints that it was time to get into the dress, the girls finally gave in and it was that moment when a girl finally lives what she’s been dreaming of since a little girl. Andrea took her final steps and made the finishing touches to become the beautiful bride you see before you. Here are some images we captured of Andrea and those beautiful moments…
I just like to say a huge thank you to both Andrea & Mark for letting me be such a huge part of their special day and I really hope I’ve done you proud with the images we have made. I know the weather wasn’t on our side but that didn’t stop us and I think you will all agree the lovely couple look stunning. Here’s to many more years of happiness!
I would also like to say a huge thank you to their friends and family for making my day so easy and being such a great laugh throughout. If you are currently planning your special day and looking for a wedding photographer, please don’t hesitate to get in contact, as I’d love to capture your special moments too.
There’s still more to see thou, so don’t go anywhere just yet…
Lots of love
