Laura and Alex, take a bow. Something that Laura will be familiar with as a professional singer, but today was one hell of a show…..
We begin in East Horsley, a rather gorgeous part of Surrey. Specifically at the lovely home of Howard and Julie, Laura’s parents. I can’t think of warmer welcome at any wedding. Within minutes of arriving ‘Howard’s Cafe’ had supplied me with bacon sandwiches and orange juice. That is a start made of win! A massive thank you to them for being so utterly lovely all day long. Working alongside me today on the video side was the most excellent Ben Foster of the London Wedding Film Company Huge fun to work alongside and another example of a videographer who is just easy to work with. There may have been an embrace along the way. Video bromance?
So, thanks out of the way and back to the main event – Laura and Alex. Next up was Ranmore just a few miles over towards the Surrey Hills. It was another warm day, and the sun shone hard as the guests rolled in. A genuinely lovely ceremony and an exit full of beaming, happy people. Confetti, laughter. All of the things you want.
Next up was the glorious setting of Polesdon Lacey and what was the last ever wedding to be held there! Talk about going out on a high though. We made some use of the amazing Gold Room for some not-entirely-serious stuff, and an afternoon outdoors with endless food and drink. A walk over to the marquee for a wonderful meal, terrific speeches and a first class first dance which I’d seen being practiced earlier. Like I said, this was a day made of win.
A day made by and for Laura and Alex. When we met a few weeks back I was instantly relaxed in their company and I knew we’d have a blast. I really wasn’t wrong. As well as exuding elegance and class – just look at Laura’s dress and shoes for an example of that – they are masses of fun. They don’t take themselves seriously, and they paid me the ultimate compliment of just trusting me to do what I do. Without fail that approach results in the best photography I can provide. Hopefully that’s shown below.
So Laura, Alex. My heart was full as I left you dancing the night away. From start to finish it was a day of laughter, love and warmth. That was all down to you and the people you love. My only regret is that I didn’t bring that unicorn…..
Thank you both so much. For everything and for who you are. This is your story…..
