Karen and Mark are two of the most fun loving people you could ever meet. Their pre wedding shoot had lots of laughs and giggles and I was sure I knew just how their wedding day was going to be. Karen chose a grecian style dress which she looked amazing in. The flowers were all multicoloured as were the grooms tie, this matched the vibrant colours of the wildflowers and butterflies at their venie. It was a beautiful marriage ceremony, by the groom's father, who is a minister, so amazingly touching to be married by your DAD! I always love capturing those ceremony expressions, but these ones between the groom, bride and minister mean so much more here. Then it was off on the hottest and longest day of the year in the cutest white open top Beetle, to the fantastic Butterfly World Project in St Albans for the party. The bridesmaids all went into a white campervan for the journey too. I loved photographing this wedding, the team at Butterfly world were amazing and everyone was so friendly and happy- guys you deserve every happiness you truly are made for each other! Please take a look at their lovely day.
At this amazing cermony the groom's own father who is a minister actual married the couple!
It was the hottest day, but the cool garden room and outside area and cold drinks were very welcome.
The staff at Butterfly world let the bride and groom have their own private little tour of both the butterfly and the insect house.
So I said they were fun, yes they went down the slide in the childrens play area and both rode on the rodeo!
