Yesterday I was lucky enough to be the documentary wedding photographer for Mark and Caroline at Weybridge Register Office in Surrey, on what was a VERY hot, but a very fun day. This was as relaxed a wedding as I’ll probably ever get to do – both Mark and Caroline got ready at home together, they went to the ceremony together and they walked down the aisle of the Rylston suite together (Although that part of things became a bit too much for their daughter as you’ll see in the pictures!). The theme for the day saw a heavy inclusion of hearts, butterflies (including a stunning butterfly head piece from Natasha Jane, which Caroline was thrilled with), buttons and music. The attention to detail was fantastic and the effort put in to it all paid off in style. There were also plenty of tears and laughter too. Following the ceremony it was back to the bride and groom’s house in Egham in Surrey where they had a big marquee, a live band and plenty of food and drink, including a big bowl of cola bottles which I couldn’t resist getting stuck into. For a wedding photographer it can be tough when it’s as hot as it was, but having such a relaxed and laid back bride and groom makes it so much easier. Apart from the few tears, Caroline never stopped smiling and it set the tone for the whole day. This is where being a documentary wedding photographer comes into its own, everything is captured naturally without any posing and it really tells the story of the day as it actually happened. I thoroughly enjoyed this wedding and even if I say so myself, I think the photography I captured on the day really does tell a good story of how it was. Here’s a selection from throughout the day, there will be some more on my Facebook page as and when they’re ready. Free feel to comment below.
