What a day... what a wedding!
When Steve told me he was getting married and asked would I photograph it, I said Hold my Gin, HELL TO THE YES! not only is he one of the most sincere guys you will ever meet, he is also a very good friend of mine.. and his new wife Beki is also now my friend wether she likes it or not.. :-)
And so they tied the knot in complete and utter style at the wonderful Cherry Orchard Lake in Delamere, and despite the initial rain, the stars aligned and the sun came out just in time for their informal ceremony which was carried out by the lovely Richard Hughes who also made the beautiful wedding rings.
The theme was full on festival vibe, with Groom Steve (who is a bloody epic carpenter) making most of the details and lets not forget Beki, who can pretty much turn her hand to anything who made the flowers, fire pit and a whole host of other details which made the day personal and unique to them.
The food was out of this world amazing - the guests were incredible, the speeches were touching, then it all went down hill when Best Man Chris got hold of the mic and showed some pretty embarrassing pictures and told some equally embarrassing stories.
The kids had fun, the dogs were roaming about being well behaved, none more than Steve and Beki's pup, Poppy who had the role of ring bearer and pretty much photobombed at every given opportunity.
The evening guests arrived and Beki popped off to get dressed into some pretty amazing festival wear, there was facepaint and glitter galore.. I'm pretty sure you guys are going to be finding that in unfathomable places for many weeks to come.
Spence and holmes (formerly the Scene) brought the house down with their set (if you are looking for a wedding band, these are your guys Fo Sho!!
And that my friends, is HOW TO DO A WEDDING!
Many thanks as ever to my trusty second shooter, the one and only Mr Tony Eccles from Prime Lens, he is nothing short of amazing!
