William & Josie - 11th July 2009
Will & Josie are a cracking couple, I guessed that from the off when we first met. Life isn't to be taken too seriously and their wedding day was certainly going to reflect their personalities.
Bridal preps started out at the beautiful boutique hotel Barnsley House which is faultlessly elegant & well styled. Perfect for me to photograph her wedding shoes by Jimmy Choo & wedding dress by Jenny Peckham.
The girls were nearing completion when I arrived which gave us plenty of time to hang out in the gardens at Barnsley House for some photos before zipping off to Cripps Barn, just a few minutes up the road.
Bring on the wedding photos and a slideshow. (Edite to say, after viewing this blog, you may wish to visit my new website at www.mattdavisphotography.co.uk)
Wedding hair and make-up was provided by this lovely lady.
It gets quite hot being a bridesmaid!
The most petit Jimmy Choo's I've ever seen.
Love the lashes. Call me a little girlie for saying this, but these were some of the best I've seen.
Dear bridesmaid: I'm really sorry for including this on the blog but it's so one of my favourite photos from the day - the expression says it all, classic!
As high as they are long. Wedding shoes and backlit legs - hot!
.....it continues, now with an additional helper!
OK, at this point you have to wonder how many more shots of shoes I can take. For the record there was just one more.
Cuddles and a little bit of robotics dancing by the looks of it. Go girl!
Hi 'mum' (of the bride) as I'm sure you'll be reading this.
Hah.....signing the register pic.....now that's how to have it.
Wedding flowers in a handy tree nook - now why would you leave them there?
At this point it's probably good to thank Will & Jo for the wedding cake(s) I had (one for me, one for my wife). Anyone wishing to please their photographer, cake is a good place to start.
Quick rehearsal before the real thing.
Did somebody peak too soon too early?
Now this last photo may not quite fit with the rest but the lady in the middle was REALLY excited to see how the photos came out - especially ones of her. Ta na!
And a wedding photo slideshow........
