The time has flown past since I first met up with Carly & Rob many moons ago to discuss their wedding photography in detail. I absolutely love this couple as they have such a great sense of humour and I just couldn’t wait to photograph their big day. I just knew it was going to be a day too remember and the day was on our doorstep.
They had planned for their ceremony to be held on HMS Warrior and for their reception to be held at The Square Tower, Old Portsmouth. I started the day with Carly and her bridesmaids at Number Four Boutique Hotel , which is a stunning venue in the heart of Southsea. When I arrived, the party was in full swing. Here are a few images I captured of Carly, her bridesmaids, their preparation and all the little details…
Carly & Rob planned for their ceremony to be held early so we were on a strict schedule and had a lot to get done. With Rob already at the Warrior awaiting his bride, it was time for the girls to think about the dress. She had a good solid team by her side with her maid of honour Amie and two bridesmaids Helena & Holly. Let the mayhem commence! It was like the family scene in Home Alone when they are getting ready to leave on holiday!! Ahhhhh…..
Don’t worry thou, everything came together nicely and it was all hands on deck and I think you will agree, our bride looks stunning. Here are some images I captured….
I had a little bit of time before Carly arrived in the Dockyard, so it was Rob’s turn to get in front of the camera with his two best men, Harry and dad Allan. We made use of the stunning backdrop of the HMS Warrior and its also a great opportunity for Rob to take his mind off his nerves. Here are some images I captured of Rob and his merry men…
I would just like to say a huge thank you to both Carly & Rob for choosing me to be such a huge part of their special day. Its been such a fun journey with you both and I think everyone will agree, you make a beautiful couple together. Here’s to many years of happiness and all the little adventures you have planned for your future.
I would also like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making this day so special for the new Mr & Mrs Hurlow. I had such a great laugh with all of the guests, both friends and family, you guys made my job so easy and I cannot thank you enough. If any of you are planning your big day and currently looking for a wedding photographer, give me a shout if you like what you see. I would love to be a part of your special day too.
