Today I have some Eastington Park wedding photographs for you, hurrah! Claire and Martin got married at Eastington Park earlier this month, we were super lucky with the weather and it was sunshine all day!
I started my day with Claire, her Mum and bridesmaids up in the bridal suite which is a really neutral space which was great for their getting ready photos, Bryony Eaves was there to do both hair and make up. Martin and his boys were also getting ready at Eastington Park, actually we could see them from the window and it seemed like each kept trying to catch a glimpse of the other lot :) but this meant I could nip up and down and get some of the guys having a cheeky drink before the ceremony. Jane from Planned to Perfection was invaluable in the morning, firstly she helped keep the coast clear while I got a shot of the dress hanging from the stairs which is in the main entrance hall. Secondly, she cunningly placed the registrars table in a place which would mean I would then get the best position for photos during the ceremony, awesome!
In fact, everyone I worked with at this wedding was fantastic! Phil from Napier Catering Ltd checked in with me to make sure everything was running on time for the meal (which it was, particular thanks to Claire’s brothers for being so helpful with the group photos) which is always helpful, he also gave me a choice of food AND pudding :D (win!) The room for the wedding breakfast looked great thanks to the purple and white scheme set off with Sorori Designs flowers and uplighting provided by their Dj, Neil Ollerton, proving how great suppliers really can make a massive difference to how smoothly the day runs! Anyway, everyone at this wedding, family, friends, suppliers, were all such a pleasure to be around. My two favourite moments of this wedding as the photographer though were both supplied by the bestman Mitch. The first was during the ceremony when the registrar asked him to make sure I could see clearly to photograph him giving the rings (something a registrar never says), the way he then held out the rings had everyone laughing and I myself had to suppress the giggles. The second was giving such a good speech that I got the photograph that I love of Martin’s whole family in fits of laughter at Martin’s expense :) Here are many of my favourites from the day:
