I always enjoy photographing weddings. There's so much love in the air and the bride and groom spend so much time carefully planning all the details. It was not any different for Nicola's and Andrew’s wedding, either! The wedding and reception was at Aston Hall. They danced their first dance to “How long will I love you?” by Ellie Golding.
A few more people that helped their wedding go off without a hitch were:
Oh no! Rain. Raining all morning and still raining as I approached the Hall. I had all my fingers and toes crossed hoping it would stop. Nicola had her heart set on getting married on the front lawns in the beautiful new pavilion. Yippee it stopped whilst I was getting some photos as the girls were getting ready. They looked amazing! So it was all on and after getting the photos of the fellas – very dapper I should add – I got set up to capture some photos of Nicola walking up the aisle with her dad. Oh no! Rain. Thank goodness it was just a flurry! Phew. And the Sun shone and shone and shone!
I love to find out how the couple met and proposed. Nicola met Andrew six years ago and had a first date. Andrew being a real romantic proposed just as they were finishing opening their Christmas presents in 2014.
"I had seen a dress on Pinterest and was describing this dress everywhere I went. Some places had similar dresses but they weren't THE dress. I eventually went to Georgian Bridal House and THE dress was the first one I looked at. I loved it straight away without even trying it on."
I asked Nicola what her favourite part of the wedding was, she said:
“The outdoor ceremony was amazing. It was the best day of our lives. Aston Hall was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Staff were amazing from the planning stages until after it was all over.”
You could tell they were really loving every minute of their special day surrounded by family and friends who loved them.
As for me, one of my personal favourite moments of the wedding was when I was photographing just the two of them in romantic poses because they were so easy to work with and were clearly in love and relaxed with each other.
