Abbots Oak Wedding – Leicestershire Wedding Photographer
Leicester and Staffordshire wedding photographer
The wonderful and beautiful wedding day of Cheryl and Josh, who tied the knot at Hugglescote church, Leicestershire and then party over at the lovely wedding venue – Abbots oak, Coalville, Leicestershire.
I was so delighted when Cheryl and Josh came and saw me at a wedding fayre, that same evening I went over to their house and we had a consultation, talked about their wedding day, what they wanted and packages etc. I knew Josh from him being in the same class as me at Primary school and I knew Cheryl because she lived on the next street to me – it was a great start to the relationship, as a wedding photographer I do need to build relationships with all my clients so I can understand their story and what the day means to them and what they expect from me. Josh being a videographer I’m glad he took an interest, usually the groom isn’t really too bothered and its more about the bride. Cheryl wanted me to photograph their wedding because I knew her and the family so of course she would be much more comfortable and less stressed on the day.
The wedding day started off at Cheryl’s parents house, the traditional way. I knew it was going to be a traditional wedding from the moment we chatted about the day, Cheryl is extremely close to her parents, a traditional wedding meant so much to them not to mention a Disney wedding – I mean who doesn’t love Disney? A beautiful wedding where the bride and groom were prince and princess, Cheryl had found her prince charming.
Usually at weddings I’m at the brides house photographing all the bridal preparations but as Josh wasn’t far away at all, he was just round the corner at his friends, so we planned the day for me to be able to head to the groom and groomsmen to grab some images of them getting ready. It was such a fun wedding, laid back so not too stressful, cheryl wanted to get all the main bits out the way so she could change out of her dress and dance. I loved that Cheryl wanted this, so as you could tell we were quick and on the ball with photos to get them out the way.
Cheryl and Josh were both amazing on their pre-wedding session, they wanted to tie in the Disney theme and we did. They brought matching Disney jumpers with mr and mrs on them, it was super adorable, they were mainly for the wedding but we used them on the pre-wedding session. The wedding ceremony was simply beautiful, the way they both looked at each other was just pure love and happiness.
As soon as ceremony, group shots, dinner and speeches were over we went straight ahead with cutting the cake and dance, we did these early on so once we finished the bride and groom portraits Cheryl could then change into her leggings and Mrs jumper. Music on and much more comfortable Cheryl just danced and danced 😃 such a beautiful wedding from start to finish and I’m sure the images show just how much this wedding meant to them.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
