Charli and James had been guests at a wedding I photographed a year ago. They asked to meet to discuss their own wedding photos, they said they'd already made their minds up I was the photographer for them. Working with couples to get exactly what they want for their wedding photos (and more) really makes me happy. The couple already have a little family of three, and we snatched some precious time away a few months before their wedding. Our fabulous pre-wedding shoot at The Swiss Gardens was lots of fun. I found out then that Charli's favourite colour is bright peacock blue, I just knew it would feature in their wedding. Their children were page boys and bridesmaid and brought the whole ceremony to tears when they did a reading each. So much love and fun in the day, with a really great bonded family. I'll let this blog post tell the rest through a selection of photos.
Charli and James had made all their guest Skittles Vodka as a gift, little coloured bottles and skittles were everywhere...so it made perfect sense for us to "Chase the Rainbow" and have some fun with some Skittles in our photographs too.
As well as being up for every photo opportunity and suggestion, Charli and James had been dead set on me doing some light painting with them, once darkness fell at Ware Priory. They had seen me do this at their freinds wedding and James and Charli, keen games players and big kids at heart, had a colour changing light sabre that they asked me to use. This couple just enjoyed being photographed all day. It was an absolute pleasure.
I'd love to thank Charli and James for asking me to be their photographer, it was fabulous getting to know you and to have such fun taking your wedding photographs. I really hope this small selection and all the rest bring back the fun and wonderful day that it was.
