Friday was spent finalising the layout for Gem and Rob wedding album from their beautiful wedding that took place in December 2012 at Luton Hoo. The layouts consisted of 40 pages from the photos they had chosen, this is design work which takes time but I find most enjoyable, incorporating a range of stock images I have of Luton Hoo collected over many weddings and used as backgrounds for their final album.
When Saturday came so did the changeable weather. Hail to start then sunshine, add a little rain and then wall to wall sunshine, finally the temperature dropped almost to freezing as the sun set. But none of this spoilt an amazing wedding for Jacintha and Nick. The ceremony took place at The Church of St Mary Virgin in Eaton Bray and then at the picturesque setting of Bellows Water Mill. The Marquee was beautifully decorated with spring flowers in sparkling colours. Jacintha looked amazing in her bridal gown and each time she appeared the sun shone brightly. The celebration was so traditional and a joy to be a part of. At the end of the day I took some pictures of the lake which shimmered in the setting sun illuminated with coloured spotlights and LED waterlilies floating on the surface.
Sunday was a little lie-in but then met up with Sarah and Carlo for a pre-wedding portrait at Hartwell House in Stone. Again a lovely setting, so calm and peaceful it is owned by The National Trust. Finally my weekend was spent back to London for Blow up media in Kings Cross for banner photography day and dusk, by the time I was on the train home I was pretty exhausted.
All in all a typical fortnight of work, okay maybe not typical but varied and busy, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
