On Sunday the 1st of April I had the pleasure of shooting Hayley and Ryan’s wedding at the Oxford Belfry in Thame.
It was another sunny Spring day as I met up with Hayley whilst she was carrying out her final bridal preparations and she seemed very relaxed, surrounded by her bridesmaids and both the Mums. The champagne was flowing and everyone was looking forward to a great day and it sure delivered.
As Hayley walked down the aisle there were a few teary eyes and rightfully so as Hayley looked amazing and her Dad looked very proud of his little girl. The ceremony was great and there were loads of laughs and a bit of banter from their family and friends throughout as well and two lovely readings before they exchanged their vows to become husband and wife.
Everyone made the most of the sun with drinks in the gardens whilst we did some formal shots. Infact the sun was so strong we left the Bride and Groom shots till after dinner when the light was more favourable and I’m glad we did as we got some lovely back light for some very warm natural portraits.
The speeches were hilarious with the best men giving Ryan the option of having a shot or a story told about him and most of the time Ryan took the shot but we did get to hear a few “boys on tour” tales from over the years
The evening was a busy affair with loads more guests arriving to party the night away and the dancefloor was in full swing after a great first dance.
Congratulations to Hayley and Ryan and thanks for asking me to capture your wedding day, I had a blast with you all.
I hope you enjoy looking through these on honeymoon and I look forward to showing you the full collection soon.
Thanks also to Paul Mannion for assisting on the day, great job as always mate.
