What a absolutely stunning day spent with Amy & Kate as they tied the knot in style. I first met Amy & Kate only a few months ago as they got in contact with me to photograph and document their special day. They had planned for the day to be held with the theme of a traditional village hall fete and this is why Rotate Village Hall was on the top of their list for venues. With a old school VW Camper as their mode of transport, bouncy castle on site, bunting decorating the hall, it was time for them to unite their love for each other.
I started the morning with Kate at her family home in Liss, where she grew up as a child. It was a very peaceful morning with a little chill in the air but the weather recently had taken a turn so we were all a little unsure with what to expect. But it seemed the weather gods were on our side and it was going to be just perfect for our lovely couple. Kate had chosen to go for a stunning vintage style dress with beautiful detailing throughout. Here are a few images I captured of Kate in the morning and her preparation…
It was just a short journey down the road to meet up with Amy and their bridesmaid Laura. The amazing Nicky from Vanilla Blush Make Up had the important job of both of our brides make up & hair today and as you can see from the images what a amazing job she did.
Amy’s morning was a little more hectic with Laura adding the final touches to her speech and the girls working their way through the “wedding” Spotify play list. Amy had chosen to go for something a little more traditional when it comes to her dress, but upon seeing it I knew they were going to compliment each other so much. Here are some images I captured of Amy getting ready and all the little details…
The ceremony was held at The Portsmouth Registry Office and before our brides made their way down the aisle, they wanted to do what they called “The Reveal”. This really was a beautiful way for them to first see each other and here are a few images I captured of them….
So I would just like to say a huge thank you to both Amy & Kate for letting me be a huge part of their special day. It was just a honour to share it with you and to meet all of your amazing family & friends. You guys really do know how to party and here’s to many more years of happiness together.
I would also like to say a huge thank you to all of your family & friends for making my day so easy and so much fun. Its always nice as a wedding photographer to feel so welcome and to see so many happy faces. But before you go, here are loads more images of their special day and for your viewing pleasure.
