Wedding Photography for Debbie & Gbenga
It was an early start for us for the wedding photography for Debbie and Gbenga. Debbie, her Mother and Bridesmaids were getting ready not at the family farm but at The Mill Hotel in Sudbury. Meeting with the girls in the room all the preparations were going well. Timings were spot on, we were able to take some getting ready pictures as well as a few of Debbie when she was dressed.
Leaving them we then went to meet with Gbenga and his Groomsmen. They were getting ready close to Debbie’s family home so we stopped off to see them. We had a little time with them to capture a few preparation pictures. For their portraits we found a shaded spot behind the cottage in the shelter of the trees as it was now a very hot day. Leaving them we then went the short distance to Debbie’s family home. Waiting for us there were the two Flowergirls with their Mummies. Debbie wanted a couple of family pictures there before going to the Church. It worked well, wethen left them and made our way to St Nicholas Church, Castle Hedingham. At Church we captured a few pictures of the guests as they arrived. Debbie arrived with her Father shortly afterwards and walked down the path and into the Church. After the service, using the shelter of the trees from the sun, we got on with taking the requested family group pictures. This worked well and it wasn’t many minutes before we were able to leave for the Reception. The Marquee was set up in the grounds of Debbie’s Parents Farm so we quickly took a few pictures of the details before we took some informal pictures of the Guests who were enjoying the Drinks Reception. Debbie and Gbenga arrived a little later, making for some great pictures as they entered the farm. Debbie and Gbenga then enjoyed some social time with their Guests before some fun bridal party shots. We took Debbie and Gbenga’s pre-wedding pictures at the Farm earlier in the summer so knew the opportunities for their ‘together’ pictures. We were looking forward to take these. Although still rather hot we took a few pictures of them around but decided to take some more later on. When everybody was seated for the Wedding Breakfast, one person who was designated from each table, put on an apron and took on the job of carving the joint of beef for their party. After the meal the Speeches followed. It was a beautiful evening and more pictures beckoned! Debbie and Gbenga were more than happy to have a few pictures around the lake and then go into the cornfield. Wonderful! After Debbie and Gbenga’s First Dance a little later we then said our ‘goodbyes’. A most rewarding day of wedding photography.
