Becky & Chris | North England
As soon as I met Becky & Chris on skype, I knew their Wedding would be something special – they warned me that their village was very small, I said that’s fine – I’m from New Zealand! But when I arrived, it was the kind of small that makes your heart melt into a pool on the floor. Without exaggeration, Becky’s parents house, the church, the town hall and the pub were all on the same road. How can you not fall in love with a Wedding where the bridesmaids all walked to the church!
Their Wedding was a real village effort, I set off when it was still dark for a beautiful, mystical scenic drive through the english countryside until I arrived and was greeted by the biggest, heartiest pub breakfast I’ve ever laid eyes on. After they were reassured I couldn’t fit anything more to eat – Becky, the most laidback bride you’ll ever meet casually took me down the road to her place for a cup of tea and to meet her parents. I felt more like a long lost friend of the family then her Wedding photographer!
This was a day where everyones hearts and stomachs were full to the brim, Becky & Chris as well as their family and friends put so much time into every little detail – including having the village ice cream man serve cone english ice cream at the reception! They concluded the night with one of the most exciting but life threatening first dances I’ve ever witnessed – ceilidh dancing ( pronounced cay-lee) was an amazing sort of line/circle dance which results in being whirled around the room at top speed by your partner.
Becky & Chris – thank you for welcoming me into your lives with such open arms and for letting capture your day.
How amazing is the Wedding car! Becky’s father owned it and had it especially done up – complete with in-costume chaffeur!This was amazing – and definitely the record for the most groomsmen I have ever photographed at one time!Please feel free to leave your messages for the couple and comments below
