We had been waiting a long time for this day; Dom is a very dear friend of Sonias so we were thrilled when she first asked us to do her wedding photography. Taking photos of any couples wedding day gives you a special feeling, let alone when it’s one of your close friends.
It was such a great morning, watching Dom get ready for her magical day with her girlies and the lovely atmosphere whilst the girls had their wedding brekkie and then had their hair and make-up done. The girls looked amazing in their dresses with their fabulous hair do’s and Dom, well where do we start; she looked like a princess and that’s exactly how she felt. Let us not forget the handsome Groom, Chris you looked great too!
We loved the vintage theme, the welcome drinks were surrounded by old suitcases full of Dom & Chris memorabilia and they had a special room set up for vintage themed photographs, a cheese cake for the cheeseboard and of course the sweetie bar! Every detail had been considered, the place names were vintage looking luggage tags tied to apples by the stem, it was such a unique idea. Everywhere we looked it was a photo opportunity, even during the ceremony where the groom cried, (a lot) it was just a great day full of inspiration and happiness – which is the perfect combination for any photographer.
The Mansion House in Shuttleworth is a very popular venue for weddings and is a grand, stately home with amazing grounds surrounding it. We made the most out of the sunset with the bride & groom by taking them out into the grounds to get some shots of them together; running, cuddling, kissing and generally just being a happily married couple. These were our favourite shots of the day, as were the Bride and Groom as they ordered their thank you cards, canvases and aluminium prints with these sunset photos, the Custardface Photography Love Box is going to be on every wall of the newlyweds house!
A massive Congratulations to a lovely couple!
