Venturing into deepest Suffolk for Fiona and Daniel’s wedding, I was once again pleased to see we had lovely weather for what turned out to be a cracking wedding!
The day’s coverage started at a little church just outside Woodbridge, Daniel and his family had arrived in good time which made for a nice chilled start to the day – much better than turning up with minutes to spare & rushing about!
As always I had a quick chat with the boss – in this case the lovely Father John to ensure I worked within his rules (there weren’t any, woohoo! Although it didn’t change what I do, I never use flash during a service, cameras are always on silent mode in church and I am very careful to keep a low profile, be respectful and not disturb proceedings at all. If only all photographers would try this, it would certainly help our profession’s reputation with the men & ladies of the cloth!)
Before we knew it Fiona arrived with her father Stuart and the serious bit got underway…
After a lovely service we all hopped in cars to the wedding reception at Suffolk’s beautiful Seckford Hall, a stunning luxurious hotel with lovely grounds for photography…
I took 5 minutes to ‘bung the drone up’ for some aerial shots of the hall & grounds, I hadn’t even realised there was a golf course just behind it until this point!
So, drinks and group shots done it was time to head inside for the meal and speeches (an hour earlier than originally scheduled, I work fast when I need to!) …
After the food and some great speeches, we made the most of a spare ten minutes to nip out to the front of the hall for a few more shots with Fiona and Daniel and Daniel’s usher Matt who was an excellent human flash stand. (Thanks again for your help Matt, much appreciated!)
And on to the final part of the day – PARTY TIME! Commencing with the first dance which Fiona & Daniel had clearly practised, they did a great job.
I wish I could remember the name of the band they sounded awesome (maybe Fiona or Daniel could let me know, I’d love to give them a shout out here).
Thank you to Fiona and Daniel and all of their family and friends for making the day so fun to photograph and for making me feel so welcome, a truly lovely bunch of people!
