It's September and this is my first full day wedding for 2020. It's been such a crazy year but these two stuck with it and was determined to get married this year, and what a day it was! Beautiful weather, stunning venue and a gorgeous couple.
I met Emma in room 1 at The Assembly House in the morning where preparations were well underway. I love seeing the joy and happiness on every ones faces as I enter to say hi. I focus on the details first, there's a lot of time and thought put into these so I make sure I make the most of the natural light available to highlight the flowers, the rings and the dress.
Once I was happy with the detail shots I then spent the rest of the morning with the party having their hair and make up done.
After a spot of lunch and some cartoons for their little one, and us: ;-) what felt like five minutes soon became a couple of hours and before we knew it we had half an hour until the ceremony was due. Dad was waiting outside the room ready to collect his daughter eager to get his first look.
I love setting up this special moment when he first sets his eyes on the bride, for me that's the most real and genuine emotion anyone can capture between father and daughter. There's smiles, laughter and tears of joy, how much more real could you get.
With that I went to meet up with Gavin in the music room, this was first time I saw the groom on the day and what a stunner! ;-) looking proper dapper in his three piece.
This is the last moment I can capture my couples separately, all hyped up with anticipation and excitement until they're reunited soon to be married.
The ceremony is soon over due to the current situation the world is in but it didn't take anything away from the love between these two. The only thing added extra was the hand sanitizer!
After Emma & Gavin mingled with their guests for a while we hopped on over to the Plantation Gardens for a quick couple shoot. This is where we had their engagement shoot so it was nice to revisit and tie everything together as a couple and then as husband and wife.
The Plantation Garden is a restored Victorian town garden just set of Earlham Road. It boasts some gorgeous flower beds, lush green lawns, an Italian terrace at the very end and of course a 30ft Gothic fountain. An ideal and interesting place for your photos!
Once we grabbed some shots we headed of to their parents home where a gorgeous afternoon tea was laid out in a marquee for a small intimate reception with their nearest and dearest.
