Emma & Tom's Wedding @ Harbour View Hotel Christchurch

Emma & Tom


Friday the 13th..........who the hell would book a wedding on this date.

haha

if that is what you were thinking then, you wouldnt be alone. im not that supersticouse and obviosly nor are Tom & Emma who had the pick of ALL of the hotels in Dorset & Hants with this date. Its pretty genius actualy..... i dont think they had many hassels with friends and familys with clashing dates thats for sure.


Emma found out about my work through some meutral friends. Being a tattooist she draws on allot of them ;-) and luckily my friends pointed her in my dirrection. With my experiance with Music promotional work Emma & Tom were happy enough for me to use my creativity on the day as i wished. I felt happy to be hired on the basis of what i have done in the past in another form so i was dead looking forward to this date :D






with a 100+ guests and very comfortable couple in front of the camera this lead to a fair few photos taken. so i tried to just upload a couple into my blog for this day but i couldnt keep the number down so call this a WARNING...........this page may take a while to load up haha. so grab a cup of tea n let it load up :D or just close this window and go back to your farm on facebook. :-) hehe







The Day started with me turning up farrr too early (no traffic) so redbull was drunk n kit triple checked and i met Emma who was just finnishing up doin her hair and make-up in her room. oh and eagerly waiting to put on her dress :-)

So then it was time for all hands on deck..oh i mean bride

having time to do a quick portrait before the service once dressed is a blessing.

Once the service was over we went outside where it looked like the heavens was about to open any second. we were all very lucky as it held off for just enough time to grab some group shots of the 2 familys and the big large shot of everyone!

I managed then to steal the bride and groom for 20mins to get some couple shots overlooking the harbour. This was where i could test out my new Trisync Flash holder. Big thx for Greg for being my lightstand :D

Photobucket

and once the evening guests started to arrive the disco got going downstairs....
I snuck the Bride and groom off once again at sunset to grab some evening shots by the bench and water. (it was also a great time to grab some fresh air too :)

The first dance was followed by a preformance by local rockers "Lady Winwoods Maggot"
The party was lively beforehand but these guys just took it to the next level.

Upon arrival to the church i met up with my 2nd shooter for the day Greg Thurtle, Its always a pleasure shooting a wedding with greg, he's a true gent *cough*..... sometimes he does needs to be kept on a short lead though. haha
Photobucket




The day got off to a somewhat....entertaining start. put it this way.....iv never seen a best man arrive after the bride before. Not planned i may add, im sure the bride can tell you!


Photobucket


But after a delayed start the day got into motion and everything ran so very smoothly
