Gemma & Dave were married at the end of October, and it was a beautifully sunny autumnal day for them. The fallen leaves on the ground matched the autumn leaves and cones that Gemma had used to decorate The Priory Hotel in Herefordshire. Gemma & Dave are such a lovely couple, and I really felt like one of the family during their wedding day, which was a small and personal gathering. Gemma was so excited during the ‘getting ready’ part of the morning, it was fab! Dave had organised lots of things during the wedding himself which would be a surprise for Gemma – one in particular was the harpist playing as she walked up the aisle – a really nice touch which brought a tear to Gemma’s eye! I love the shots of her looking at her husband-to-be as she walks up the aisle to that music. Gemma looked absolutely stunning in her White Minx dress and veil, with her hair by Angelina of Beautiful Brides. The sun continued to shine all afternoon so it was perfect for their Pimms outside, and for the group and couple photographs. I always get a bit excited when I have beautiful light and a beautiful couple in love! Their tables looked great with autumn leaves and candles, and lots of elements had been made by friends, including the heart-shaped Welsh Cake favours, and the magnificent wedding cake itself, complete with model of Gemma & Dave riding off on his bike! After a delicious meal and some hilarious speeches, the evening’s partying commenced with Gemma & Dave dancing a very romantic first dance, before calling everyone onto the dancefloor for some serious boogying
Here are the kind words of Gemma & Dave in a Thank You card that I have just received from them: “We just want to thank you so much for all of the effort that you put into our fabulous wedding photographs! We love them so much, you would not believe how grateful we are! Everyone felt so comfortable in your presence including us. You’re professional, understanding, and so so talented. We will be (we’ve already started in fact!) recommending you to all we can and hope to see you at a friends/family wedding soon! We couldn’t have imagined our wedding photographs being any more perfect. You really made our memories of the day come back to life! We wish you every sucess and happiness for the future, and good luck with your wedding next year! Lots of Love, Gemma & Dave xxx”
