Sara & Andy

Sunshine. Last May when these two gorgeous people were wed, sunshine was the order of the day. Along with a beautiful attention to detail, a fun group of family and friends and a truly gorgeous couple.

I met Sara and Andy around 18 months before their wedding and after a couple hours chatting and getting to know them, I knew I would be devastated if I did not get to photograph the story of their day! So when the message came through that they had chosen me, I was thrilled! We loved so much of the same things and they fully embraced my ideas, including an idea to do their pre wedding shoot in the New Forest, a place I love so much and have so many ideas for, which we did in the Autumn… a stark contrast to their spring time wedding.

The day started with Sara getting ready at the pretty awesome Hotel du Vin, just down the road from the Guildhall in Poole where their ceremony was to take place. Perfect walking distance for our bride to wander up the hill to say ‘I do’ to her boy. He on the other hand got ready at their pretty ace flat and caught a red London bus to the Guildhall, to say ‘I do’ to his girl.

Their ceremony was gorgeous and lovely readings that left everyone wiping away an escaping tear. After that it was a whirwind confetti shot (literally) and then all on board the bus back to the hotel for the reception.

Sara and Andy have impeccable taste and to say that their attention to detail was amazing is an understatement. Graphic designer Andy did a brilliant job at all their stationery and Sara, who’s love of all things weddings and her inspiring vision created a wedding that was utterly sublime. Succulent flowers for centrepieces (my favourite!) and personal references throughout… including custom cocktails which went down a treat on such a hot day! Sara is actually a blogger herself and her fabulous wedding blog Wedding Sparrow is about to be relaunched in May so keep your eyes peeled!

The legends that are the Indie Killers got the party going and it was one that went on late into the night. If ever you want a band to to get in and amongst it and your guests going… Indie Killers are your band!

Sara and Andy, shooting your wedding was an utter pleasure and I am so grateful for the friendship we have formed. I cannot wait to hopefully work with you on some projects this year and now I am living that little closer, we are going to have to meet up heaps!

 

And it is with massive thanks to Lisa, who’s unfaltering energy and enthusiasm knows no bounds.x
