‘Seeing your images, I felt like I was transported back to wedding day. You brilliantly captured the energy and mood of the day. Bravo!’ – Father of the Bride
‘Richard, you managed to capture the very essence of Norma Jean and Mike’s wedding. Thank you for your dedication and vision for immortalizing this memory studded day.
…Jen (mother of the bride) xx’
Bubbly & sandwiches, super-friendly people, a wedding mascot in the form of Norma and Michael’s retriever Pippen, continuous laughter…and that was just the start of the day.
Having arrived at Botleys Mansion, I headed upstairs to meet Norma who was preparing for the day ahead. Everyone was so welcoming, this was always going to be a fun wedding to observe and photograph.
Preparations continued upstairs and a little while later Michael headed off to welcome guests. It was soon Norma’s turn to go downstairs and walk up the aisle with her parents…
After the knot was officially tied, N&M headed out for reception preceded by a confetti toss. For once this July, it was a dry and sunny day ideal for taking some time to catch up with old friends.
Speeches were the first thing on the list just before dinner, and once everyone was well fed and watered we headed outside for a few shots of the couple.
To kick off the party there was a quick burst of Jewish dancing before N&M’s first dance and the party itself.
Congratulations Norma and Michael, a beautiful day for a wonderful couple! R
