Melissa & James
We always love a wedding at Summerfields but Autumn is a special time of year with it’s soft golden light just at the right time for our couples’ photos! Once again on this particular weekend we were blessed with beautiful weather for Melissa and James’s special day.
Melissa’s preparations took place at her parent’s house and we had plenty of time for photos in their gorgeous garden decorated by Melissa’s Mum and with the added swing seat made my James’s Dad. Lots of tears flowed as Melissa’s Dad saw her in her wedding dress for the first time!
Felicity Kerr performed the ceremony and then after a few family groups we took Melissa and James down to the lake and the big oak tree for their photos.
Melissa was lucky enough to wear two dresses for her big day along with a choice of 3 pairs of shoes but then you can never have enough shoes! She decided to wear a shorter dress for their dance and after what has been probably the most unusual bridal dance we have seen, we now know why! We did a second mini-shoot in the olive grove as the sun was setting and the style of dress gives the photos a totally different feel!
They had great party-loving guests who enjoyed the photo booth and their friend took to the stage to sing a few songs along with the band Popcorn. The evening wrapped up with a guard of honour which is always fun to try and shoot!
