Well I had a fantastic weekend's photography at Mulgrave Country Cottage I felt truly honoured as Joanne & Paul had chose me to be their official photographer for the day at their renewal of vows ceremony .
The day started out pretty overwhelming as soon as I arrived on site ,the heat taking its toll on me straight away wearing a shirt tie & waist coat & an overloaded camera bag didn't help .
Anyway thing soon got underway as I had a wander getting the feel of the place & acclimatising to the weather
My biggest fear was will all my cameras hold up as there have been known issues with temperatures
First job of the day was the getting ready photos with Joanne & the flower girls
For the first few minutes in that room I felt stifling hot like I was wearing cardboard covered in sweat n I just could not concentrate but eh oh I had a job to do ive been here before, nervous concentration
Surely the magic would happen soon !
Well it took one glass of prosecco & then I began to relax ,started to get the shots i wanted & I felt set up for the day then .
The ceremony started & everything ran almost smooth & relaxed as I would expect it to I got some great shots of the happy couple , family & friends some posed & some in my usual natural style
I can honestly say that I almost forgot why I was there for a while as I had such a laugh with everybody
My job was made easier by people willing to pose & the banter amazing I honestly believe this showed in my photos as they are a mixture of romance ,laughter & damn outrageous
Thank you to Joanne & Paul letting me create your memories
