This lovely couple are now the current record holders for the earliest civil ceremony we've covered, tying the knot at 10 am which meant a very early start with Jenna and her bridesmaids at around 7.30 am. An early ceremony has several advantages. It gives the bride and groom a much longer wedding day to enjoy after all the months of planning and it allows them plenty of time to spend with family and friends. It also meant that we could divide Jenna and Kyle's photographs into shorter sessions and by approaching it this way, it made their wedding photography very enjoyable and relaxed and enabled us to make the most of the locations at the Chevin Hotel.
Jenna and Kyle were an absolute joy to work with and it's hard to imagine a more perfect match - each of them to the other and them to us, their wedding photographers. They are so easy to get along with and they'd told us that they love the more arty style of wedding photographs which is something we love creating. They were happy and enthusiastic about working through some ideas with us and for coming up with ideas of their own.
There were some beautiful and personal touches throughout this wedding. Jenna wore her grandma's string of pearls, Kyle put lots of thought into putting together a box of little gifts for his bride and he had them delivered to her room by Vish, who we'd heard a lot about and who was described by Jenna as her friend and "bridesman". As Vish is from South Africa, Jenna's gorgeous and vibrant flower arrangements around the venue included some from his homeland and after the speeches, this lovely man presented the newlyweds with a gift of a honeymoon in the Lake District.
We concentrated on getting the group photos, traditional couple shots and some fun images with the bridal party in the can before the wedding breakfast, planning to work with Jenna and Kyle and make the most of the beautiful locations during the afternoon and early evening. We had to wait a long time for the sun to go down but by the time we headed off to work on the other side of the lake and in the woods, the light was much softer.
Jenna and Kyle's wedding photography at Chevin Country Park Hotel wouldn't have been complete without a few images on the spiral staircase and we got some crackers which we are really happy with. We had a beautiful subject to work with and Kyle, you scrubbed up well too!
A huge thank you Mr and Mrs Oldfield for booking us to capture your wonderful day and for being so fabulous to work with. We really can't wait to see your images come to life in what will be an amazing storybook album.
