A few weeks ago I headed down south of Norwich towards Thetford for Joseph and Lara’s wedding where the ceremony was scheduled for 7:30pm in the evening.
The weather on the day before had been fabulous (I was out shooting Lara and Grant’s wedding picnic the day before) but Sunday morning was horrible and cold with lots of dark grey clouds. Not a great start for an outdoor ceremony and reception! The Gods however must have been smiling on Joseph and Lara as by mid afternoon the clouds had begun to lift and the sun came out and it was a beautiful and warm evening when we arrived at the house to begin photographing some of the preparations for the wedding. The ceremony itself was incredibly moving with one of Joseph’s oldest friend conducting and Joseph and Lara reading personal and handwritten vows to each other – there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
What a wonderful table layout!
Because all the preparations were nice and close by I was able to flit easily between Lara getting ready and then shots of Joseph and their guests arriving
Lara was keen to have a contrasting picture of his and hers wedding footwear 🙂
Joseph bought Lara a beautiful bracelet on their wedding day
Just as dusk was beginning to fall we took some shots of Joseph and Lara in the garden – it was just that perfect time of the evening when the natural daylight was quite low and soft allowing the fairly lights to register as well
Lara’s Gran was in South Africa and actually participated for most of the wedding via an iPad but Lara wanted her to know how special she still was
