I instantly liked Kate and Lee. Kate was bursting with excitement as she told me the details of her wedding, and I fell in love as I listened. I got the thumbs up from their little pooch Buzz, and loved how Kate was always in touch sending me little messages and photos leading up to their big day. I felt such a connection with them, and knew their wedding day was going to be super special, not just from a photography view, but I felt we had developed a friendship over the months and I really felt a part of it all.
On the day, the sun was out though we had had SO much rain recently that it was a bit soggy out. Kate's love of the outdoors and her woodland theme meant that no rain or wet was going to stop us from utilising the outdoors as much as possible, including hanging that dress outside. With her lovely bridesmaid on hand to help, I teetered on my little ladder to find the perfect tree that wasn't too wet. Kate had packed her wellies so there was nothing that was going to stop us later on. And just as well, as it actually poured with rain during the church ceremony! There was even thunder! But timing is everything, and when the doors opened, beautiful sunshine streamed in.
There was so much thought and planning into all the little details. Kate and Lee had done a lot themselves, and everything fit together perfectly. The colours tied in like a dream; feathers, delicate water colour table settings, exquisite blooms, fairy lights, rustic doors, it was all magic.
Kate and Lee were just immensely relaxed about their day. Their love for all their guests shone brightly for the duration. I felt so at home with everyone there, and had just the most loveliest day ever. Being back at Plum Park was wonderful, the staff are just the nicest bunch ever.
I know Kate and Lee have been having an amazing honeymoon (I've been getting all the pics!), and I can't wait to hear about the next stage in their lives together. A beautiful day for such a beautiful, caring, fun couple. You both are amazing. xx
