Robyn and Jamie are a great couple whom I have come to know very well over the past few months, undertaking a pre-wedding shoot in London and shooting a boudoir session with Robyn a few weeks ago. They had their wedding on Friday, which was a pretty dismal day for weather – and that’s the very first time this year I’ve had to say that – I suppose my good fortune had to end sooner or later!
Even though the rain came down as we left the church in Royston, it cleared for a long period for the reception which took place in the regal setting of Fanhams Hall Hotel in Ware, Herts. We had plenty of time for the all-important bride and groom portaits before the wedding beakfast got underway and the rain returned. Jamie is a sergeant in the Rifles Regiment and had just returned from a field exercise on Salisbury Plain the day before! He looked fantastic in his No. 1 dress uniform complete with campaign medals but I’m sure you’ll agree that nobody could have upstaged the beautiful Robyn in her wonderful dress. The couple had booked a Toastmaster at this wedding (Dennis Ruttledge) who is a great character and did a great job of helping me by rounding up family and friends for the group shots. In red formalwear for the wedding breakfast, he’s shown here in his evening suit announcing the bride and groom’s first dance.
I always take loads of detail shots at my weddings as couples spend many hours and cash on them and they help to make the day what it is – I loved the message on the small boxes of matches that were at each place setting.
