I’m very excited to share with you Nathalie & Kevin's Wedding at Cumberwell Park, Bradford-on-Avon, 22nd May 2015. You may have already seen shots from their fun Pre Wedding Shoot in Leigh Woods from earlier in the year. I work with Kevin and it was an honour for the photography of their big day to be placed in my hands!
On my arrival to this prestigious Golf Club, grey skies loomed. But as the first guests arrived the clouds parted and the sun fought through, blessing us with a rain free day. In the Celebration Garden, amongst the flowers and trees, families and friends mingled, and Kiaran - Nathalie and Kevin’s son - weaved between legs, providing endless photo gems! Nathalie arrived in a classic black cab and her amazing smiled beamed through the open window. Meanwhile Kevin, looking very dapper (especially considering our usual work attire is on the casual side of smart-casual!), waited upstairs tentatively. Selecting photographs from the ceremony was tricky, as there were so many and in every one their smiles stretched from ear-to-ear. With the deed done we congregated again in the celebration garden, before I stole the newly weds away for a golf buggy adventure over the course, where we captured some beautiful couple shots. We returned upstairs for the touching speeches, delicious food, and a celebration wide, portrait sketching session. When the DJ arrived, Kevin was obviously a little disappointed that he couldn’t DJ his own wedding, but did insist I got some shots of him posing behind the decks! Hip hop moves stretched into the night, with guests of all ages strutting their stuff!
Once again, I must express the great honour it is to photograph a friend’s wedding. This was the first wedding I have ever shot and the day was extremely challenging but ultimately hugely rewarding and enjoyable. I was also received so warmly by all the couple's family and friends which made the whole experience a real pleasure.
So Kevin and Nathalie, here is my wedding gift to you. Photos that I hope tell the true story of your amazing day. I wish you every happiness together. Big Love Martin xxx
