Wendy and Alan...

Another busy week again at JD HQ, suffice to say we're absolutely mental busy with lots of weddings coming up over the next couple of weeks. I don't think we've got a weekend free until the middle of September at the earliest!


This time last week though, myself and Rachel were busy capturing the lovely Wendy and Alan, whose wedding was at Bosworth Hall, situated a stone's throw away from the famous battleground.


Touch wood, it seems like all my couples are blessed with incredible weather, and it was no different for Wendy and Alan who had arranged some awesome lawn games ready for their guests to enjoy in the sunshine. It's always nice to have a snoop around the venue before the guests arrive to see the surprises and little touches the couple have planned, and we always make a point of getting some pictures whilst things are perfectly in place.


After we'd got a few quick shots of the venue, it was on to meet one of the nicest grooms I've come across to date, Alan. If you're one of the unfortunate people reading this blog, who hasn't met Alan, let me just say that he's one of the funniest and most approachable chaps I've ever met. He greeted me like a long lost friend, and It was easy to see right from the get-go, that he was going to give us some fantastic photo opportunities as he was joking around with all the guests. Such a genuinely nice bloke, with a wicked sense of humour. After having a brief look over the photos, he definitely didn't disappoint.

As the guests piled into the ceremony room, one of the venues staff members grabbed me for a few quick photos of the bridal party gathered on the staircase shortly before Wendy was ushered into a meeting with the registrar, to make absolutely sure for certain she wasn't planning on doing a runner.


One of my favourite parts of any wedding is capturing that first moment the groom lays his eyes on his bride, and Alan just gave wendy the biggest smile as she walked into the room with her bridesmaids following in behind her.


As always, the registrars put on a really good show, and Alan was revelling in the opportunity to crack a few one-liners throughout the proceedings ensuring we got some really genuine smiles from both Wendy and the guests.


They'd also arranged a guitarist who played a few little acoustic numbers to fill the gaps whilst the newlyweds were busy signing the register and doing their legal bits. A really lovely ceremony, and just the kind I love to photograph, packed with personality.


I can't believe I've got this far down the blog without talking much about Wendy! Well, Wendy was an absolute joy the whole time we were there circulating and laughing with all her guests. She even got stuck well into some of the lawn games they'd laid on, making sure even the children who attended got a few cheeky games of croquet in with her.


As with all my weddings, it's a real disappointment when we have to depart. My job is incredibly rewarding, and getting to share one of the most important days for any couple is a real honour, that I take very seriously.


The people I photograph are at the forefront of why I love my job so much. I've worked with some incredible couples, and Wendy and Alan are most definitely amongst the best of them. We had an absolute blast attending their wedding, and we can't wait to get the finished photos over to them!


We'll leave it at that for this week!


Peace, Love and Photos.
