Lauren and Graham - Southdowns Manor - 5th March 2016

On Saturday 5th March I photographed the lovely wedding of Lauren and Graham at the beautiful setting of Southdowns Manor. I started photographing Lauren during her bridal prep whilst her hair dresser was finishing her hair and putting real fresh flowers in it which looked simply amazing <3

During Lauren's prep I went to find the groomsmen for a few shots before the ceremony and they were totally up for a laugh. When Lauren was putting on her dress she got the first look of her lovely daughter all dressed up and then Graham got a first look and you could see he was holding back the tears :)

Once Lauren walked down the aisle you could tell how happy Graham was to see his beautiful bride and how he was trying not to cry. During the signing of the register one of Lauren's oldest friends sung them a song which was simply beautiful and amazing. 

We then did the Bride and Groom shots and Group shots and of course we had to have a bit of fun with them including using the bow and arrow for a bit of a Maid Marion and Robin Hood shot. The honeymoon suite is just lovely and the bath is amazing so we had to use it for some shots as would be a shame not too. After wedding breakfast we had just missed the lovely sunset so made the most of the night light we had to capture some evening shots.

After a rather emotional and funny speeches it was time to cut the very cool cake and do the traditional first dance. Just before I finished we of course had to go outside and do a few fun sparkler shots to end an amazing wedding day :)

Thank you so much both of you for having me as your photographer it was such a lovely special day <3
