We photographed the lovely wedding of Elizabeth and Michael earlier in the year, with bitterly cold winds and rain on and off all day, but was this going to spoil their day…… no it wasn’t !
We arrived at Elizabeth’s parents house for home visit shots, It was lovely to be working with Emma Quin of Pretty Faces Makeup and Pete from Studio 56 in Sudbury for the hair and having a good catch up along with getting the prep shots of Elizabeth.
Then it was off to the stunning church at Long Melford where Sam French of Wild Poppy Flowers had done an amazing display down the aisle of the church and where we met Michael and all the guys.With the rain on and off guests made their way into the church and Elizabeth was lucky that it held off long enough for her to make her grand entrance.
After the ceremony there was a surprise guard of honour for Michael from his colleagues from Long Melford Fire station and we then came back into the church for all the group photos and mulled wine to keep the guests warm.However Elizabeth, Michael and their bridal party braved the cold for a few fun photos outside and looking at the photos you would never guess how cold they were especially the bridesmaids what a really fun bunch they were !
Then it was off to Le Talbooth Restaurant for the reception and where we did a few together shots of the happy couple,it was really strange to not see the marquee up so we made use of the large patio area instead.It was very warm and cosy in the restaurant and everyone was enjoying themselves.After some very funny speeches the evening ended with some great dance moves from all the guests.
Thank you Elizabeth and Michael for letting us be part of your special day.
