I've know Nathan for a quite a number of years now as we moved next door to his parents, at that time he was still living at home and his friends were dropping by, cleaning cars on the drive, you know, the type of thing that teenagers who love their cars do! Then I met Jess over the fence one day - it became clear that his new friend was actually his girlfriend and the rest as they say is history! So, you can imagine my delight when they asked me to be their wedding photographer. It's such an honour being asked to capture a wedding and I felt so welcome with familiar faces there on the day!
The reception was held at Audleys Wood Hotel in Basingstoke which is such a stunning venue, Jess, her parents and the bridesmaids got ready there too and the room was stunning - perfect for bridal preps! The lovely Natasha Wiggins did their hair and make-up. I think you can see from the photos what a lovely and chilled morning we all had.
The wedding service was held at St Andrew's Church in Sherbourne St John and we nearly managed to dodge the rain clouds, they made a quick appearance just as the service finished but they weren't going to dampen the smiles!
Everyone relaxed inside the hotel for the drinks reception as the rain made another appearance but we were lucky to have some breaks in the rain and time for some couple photos in the stunning grounds.
Then it was time to head to the marquee for the wedding breakfast and speeches before dancing the night away.
Congratulations Nathan and Jess, it was a perfect day for a gorgeous couple. I hope you're enjoying married life!
