A Newland Hall Wedding - Amy and Tom

Well this was a special one for me.
They are all special of course, but Amy and I have been friends for many years. We’ve shot lots of weddings together and make an excellent photography team. So trust me when I say it was an incredible honour to document her and Tom’s big day for them.

They chose the very lovely Newland Hall as their venue.

Amy got ready in the bridal room with her girls.

Meanwhile Tom and the lads were getting ready and enjoying a few beers downstairs. This is a man celebrating heroically saving his mates (and his beer) from a wasp!

Meanwhile, back upstairs, the girls had been joined by Amy’s nephew and very dapper page boy, Zack.

Before long, the dress was on and it was time for Amy’s Dad to see her. It was an emotional and beautiful moment. I always love it when the Dad gets emotional!

And then… Showtime! 
Tom was already over at the woodlands ceremony area waiting for his bride.

He didn’t need to wait too long though. Amy was escorted down the aisle by both her Mum and Dad. Tom’s face lit up when he saw her.

The ceremony itself was just lovely. A little emotional and very sweet - just the way it should be. 

Quick note to anyone that was a guest - I wouldn’t usually have been on my knees in the aisle for the first kiss, but the roof ledge obstructed their faces and so I needed to be a little less subtle than usual. My apologies if anyone was temporarily blinded by the sun reflecting off of my big bald head! 

After the ceremony, they had a confetti exit, which I’m a big fan of.

There was then some drinks and some chit chat, before we found a nice shady spot for some group shots.

And then it was time for me to steal the happy couple away from their guests for 20 minutes to take a little walk around the gardens. By the way, you know you’ve got a wonderful couple when you place them in front of an old barn for a shot and they immediately jump into a Mortal Combat fight stance! 

They weren’t all fight poses though - I promise!

I don’t usually post shots from dinner in these little previews, but I thought this one was worth posting. little Zack loved the disposable cameras on the tables - this will be a great shot when the film is developed! 

Before long, the food was eaten, the wine was drank and the speeches were spoken. It was time for a first dance…

And then… PARY TIME
And what a party we had.

Lastly, thanks to legendary dress floofer, bridesmaid, and I guess now, photographer, Jess, for this picture of me and my mate on her wedding day ❤️

That’s all for this little preview, folks.
I’ll add one or two more pictures from this day to the Facebook and Instagram pages as I edit them, so feel free to follow along over there.

Huge thanks to all at Newland Hall for taking such good care of me. Especially to Lucy for making sure the day went so smoothly and for being an all round hero!

Thanks too to all of Amy and Tom’s lovely guests for making me so welcome.
