I was quite excited to write this blog and show off a selection of images from Emma and Jason’s wedding a few weeks back, not only because it been a while since I last posted (and I still have lots more blogs to update by the way) but St Andrews Church in Biggleswade was held where my wife and I got married 3 years ago, so going back as a photographer felt much more special on this particular day and obviously the venue was very familiar to me.
This was one of my popular full day wedding shoots, so the images I captured on the day ranged from the getting ready in the morning right through to the getting merry in the evening, and as you can tell by the photos the weather was particularly kind this day (as it usually is for me – good omen for all my future bride and grooms there..!).
As I was getting some last minute shots in the morning of the lovely Emma in her wedding dress all of a sudden the two young bridesmaids burst with excitement as they saw a big red London bus slowly reversing down the tight road to collect the bridal party and take them to the Church. Nice work driver!
As mentioned above the service was held at St Andrews and is a truly magnificent church, and dates back to around 1340 originally so lots of fabulous detail to explore (check out the b/w photo of the couple kneeling at the front). After a few group shots outside everyone piled onto the bus for a 30 minute drive up the A1 to Chesfield Downs Golf Club; they had previously dropped their cars off there in the morning and got a lift down to the Church; this is a great idea for all future bride and grooms out there by the way as it guarantees guests arriving at both venues at the same time, so no excuses for people getting lost or being late etc.
After a little intimate shoot of the beautiful Bride and the handsome Groom over the golf dunes by the lake (cue the crazy golf buggy driving) they sat down for their wedding breakfast in the lovely and well lit conservatory area, and we were there during the course of the afternoon and evening capturing the wedding day as it unfolded in our usual unobtrusive manner. A great day all round and congratulations again to Emma and Jason!
