It was time to celebrate and capture the beautiful wedding of Julia & James which had been a long time coming in their relationship, but well worth the wait. They had planned for their ceremony to be held at The Square Tower in Old Portsmouth and then onto Wickham Park Golf Club to really get the party started. This gave me loads of options for photos, so as you can imagine I was one happy photographer.
I started the day with Julia and her team of girls at their family home in Fareham where all their preparation was to take place. Everything from the make-up, hair to sinking a few bottles of Prosecco, these girls knew how to prep for a big day/party. Todays make-up artist was Becci Gibbons from Diamond Quays Hair & Beauty Lounge and hair by Leanne from Scissor Box in Farnham. I’ve worked with both these two lovelies on a few occasions, so its always nice to see familiar faces. Here re a few images I captured of Julia as she started her preparation and also all the little details that thy had been planning over the year.
Just a short journey down the road to meet up with James and his team of men including their little boy Isaac. The men side of things on a wedding day is always a lot more relaxed then the ladies and todays was no exception. This bit of the day is always the calm before the storm before I return back to the ladies and its always nice to capture a few images of the men in their final preparation.
Its the little attention to details that I especially love about weddings and those little bespoke touches that couples add in their own personal way. Julia & James had gone above and beyond to add their own personal touch and here are some images I captured of the men in their final stages of preparation before my day stepped up a gear.
So straight back to the ladies and by this point it was time to start thinking about the dresses. With seven bridesmaid in total I knew that all hell was about to break loose as the time suddenly disappeared, but it was nice to see that everything was under control and calm.
It was that time thou and the moment Julia had been waiting for. Here are some images I captured of Julia as she made her final preparations to becoming the new Mrs Hazzard.
I would just like to take a little time to say a huge thank you to both Julia and James for letting me be such a big part of your special day. It truly was a breath taking day and a absolute pleasure to document it. Here’s to many years of happiness together and to all the amazing adventures you and the family have planned for the future.
Also just a quick note to the family and friends, I would just like to say a huge thank you for making my day so fun and interesting. I really did have a great day and it was a pleasure to photograph each and every one of you. There are plenty of images coming in the future but below are some of my favourites and I think you’ll agree the lovely couple look absolutely stunning.
