What a amazing day spent with Louise & Paul to celebrate and document their special day, which they had chosen to hold at The Marriott Hotel, Portsmouth. The weather was absolutely stunning with a cold chill in the air and the sun high in the sky shinning bright.
I started the morning with Louise and her team of bridesmaids who were all is great spirit and enjoying the pampering from the girls from Georgina Chambers Makeup Studio who were in full steam ahead with hair and make up when I arrived. Here are some images I captured of Louise and all the little details she had been planning over the past year…
I always like to try and fit in a quick visit to the gents who luckily were getting ready just down the road. Paul was with his best man and soon to be step son Jake and it was time for them to start thinking about getting ready and into their wedding suits. Here are a few images I captured of Paul and his preparation to become a married man…
Back to the ladies on the seventh floor and by this point the bridesmaids were in their dresses and it was time for Louise to get into hers. It was down to Gina, Louise’s maid of honour to help her into her dress, whilst the others waited in anticipation in the next room as they hadn’t seen the dress yet. I love it when the bridesmaids haven’t seen the dress yet as it makes for a real special moment between them all and also great photos for me! ;)
The dress was a stunning dress from Brides Of Southampton with beautiful detailing across the mid section which match Louise’s accessories and bling. One thing that really caught my eye was the veil as it had crystals along the edge which just gave it the extra special finishing touch. Here are a few images I captured of Louise as she made her final steps to becoming the new Mrs Sykes…
There was just enough time to capture some images of Paul and Jake before they awaited Louise at the end of the aisle. Check these out…
All that is left for me to do now, is to say a huge thank you to both Louise & Paul for letting capture their special day. With my wedding season for 2019 nearly coming to a end, it was so nice to end on such a high and meet so many great people on your special day. You guys are just amazing and you have created the perfect little family unit and make such a great team. Here’s to many more years of happiness together and I really do wish you all the best.
Now to all of their friends and family that made my day such good fun and my job so easy. I think you will agree that our lovely couple look absolutely stunning and the day was just so much fun and full of laughs and emotions. Especially at the end of the aisle when Louise nearly broke into historical laughter and we were all on the edge of our seats secretly hoping to hear that hysterical cackle! ;). Before you go though, here are a few more images of our lovely couple and their bridal team.
