Our first Wedding of 2013 turned out to be a very special one! We were delighted to be asked to photograph the Wedding of Dayna and Ross at The Belfry, Sutton Coldfield. Dayna was Bridesmaid at the Weddings of her two sisters, which we photographed. Cherise married in 2010 at St Nicholas Church, Witham with a reception at Five Lakes, Maldon, and Alexandra’s Wedding at The Whittlebury Hotel, Silverstone, in 2011 .We familiarised ourselves with the Venue the day before the Wedding and re-acqainted ourselves with members of the family, with so much happening on the Wedding Day , we knew that was the best thing to do! Arriving at The Belfry on the day of the Wedding, I stayed with the girls whilst David went off to find the guys. With six Bridesmaids and a Flowergirl, there was plenty to photograph as there was for David with two Best Men and four Ushers! The room where Dayna was getting ready opened out onto a Balcony and with the weather being dry we used this setting for some photographs, as well as inside.
Before long it was time for the Civil Ceremony in the Warwick Suite and Dayna and her father entered the room to a rapturous welcome. Following the Ceremony, the Guests made their way to The Woodlands Suite for the Reception, whilst Dayna, Ross, the Bridal Party and Parents and ourselves went outside to the Herb Garden for a few family pictures and a few of Dayna and Ross. After taking the Golf Buggy to the Reception Dayna and Ross joined in with the Drinks Reception and socialised with their Guests, whilst we captured some relaxed pictures. Once everybody was in the room for the Wedding Breakfast, Dayna and Ross entered and went onto the dance floor for their First Dance. With a wonderful atmosphere, dancing took place for a little while before the serving of the Wedding Breakfast. Speeches followed later before the resuming of the dancing to the Band. After a long but very rewarding and enjoyable day, we said our goodbyes.
