After a week of weather checking, finger crossing and lots of sun dances, it was a stunning day as I headed down the M3 back to my home town of Southampton to photograph the wedding of Lizi and James. Often, bridal prep is one of my favourite parts of the day and as I was welcomed into Lizi’s home it was obvious why. Loads of excitement and positive energy flying around in a house bustling with brothers, sisters, grans, granddads, aunties, nieces, Mums and Dads, friends and probably a few more I have missed out, it was a fantastic start to the day.
Lizi was as relaxed and chilled as I think it is possible to be! Once everyone was ready, a short trip round the corner to Highfield Church where Lizi and her father parked at the vicarage before a final stroll over to the church. A wonderful church service was followed by a couple of shots outside and then back into the church for a tea party!
Tea consumed, cakes eaten and we headed over to Sunnyfields Farm for the reception. It was the first time I had been to a venue with a green carpet flanked by tractors for a wedding, thankfully Lizi and James were as keen as I was to get them into a tractor for a couple of shots!
All in all it was a really fantastic day with a wonderful couple and a lovely family. Days like that make it obvious that I have the best job in the world!
