Wedding Photographer King's Croft | Danielle and Jamie's Wedding
It's not that often we get to be King's Croft wedding photographers even though the venue is local to us, but it was great to be booked to capture the fun and relaxed celebrations of Danielle and Jamie's wedding day. It's weddings such as theirs that remind us why we love our job so much and it was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with this wonderful couple who don't take themselves too seriously and for whom the day was about being surrounded by family and friends and everyone having the best time. We caught up with Danielle at her family home for the getting ready part, where we were made really welcome. It always makes us happy when the make-up and hair styling are finished in good time and the bride is in her dress well before we have to leave to start round two, the lads' photos at the venue. It meant Danielle got pictures having her dress fastened, her proud dad's reactions on seeing her as a bride for the first time, and a few family photos in the garden with her parents, brother and sister. Jamie's King's Croft wedding photography was a laugh a minute, mainly due to best man, Andy, who kept us in stitches. He carried on his antics during the wait for Danielle's arrival, when emotion got the better of Jamie. It was a beautiful civil ceremony, made really special because it included a song that means a lot to the couple, and it was obvious just how devoted they are to each other. The weather behaved itself, allowing everyone to stay outside for photos and after the groups were in the bag we enjoyed some time with the new Mr and Mrs Fearn when we got them to ourselves for a few minutes before everyone was called for afternoon tea. Their portrait session was just gorgeous because they never stopped smiling and needed no encouragement to be romantic. Perfect! After the speeches, the bridal party came out for some fun shots and the fun and energy continued into the evening with a ceilidh band. It was our pleasure to share the day with such genuinely lovely, friendly people, and both Danielle and Jamie's parents should be very proud. Congratulations to the happy couple and thank you to Danielle's dad for finding and choosing us to capture his daughter's big day.
