The month of May saw me photographing the late spring wedding of Sally and Luke. After photographing ‘camera shy’ Luke at his ‘Surprise 30th Party’ organised by Sally in January, he was a relaxed groom as he arrived at the church with his Father as Best Man and the Ushers.
Prior to this I had spent the morning photographing Sally, her bridesmaids and flower girls as they got ready for the big day. It was a very relaxed, calm environment to photograph them, the dresses and the details throughout the morning
There was a lot detail that went into the day and you can see from the photographs on http://www.thjphotography.jamesfarley.co.uk/portfolio/sally-and-lukes-wedding-may-2015/ that this started with wild flowers in jars lining the path up to the church and these were carried on into the church itself, as well as at the reception at the Moat House.
One of the great things about this wedding, as with all weddings, was the preparation that went into it, and this also extended to the style of photographs that Sally required. Personally it was a challenge that I relished and it was a great source of satisfaction when Sally and Luke gave me their positive feedback.
The detail continued at the reception, and it complimented a relaxed day full of laughter and love shared with Sally and Luke by their families and friends.
Both St Mark’s Church in Great Wyrley and The Moat House at Acton Trussell provided stunning settings for the photographs and I was honoured to be asked to photograph this day.
