Hi Everyone :) ... i hope you are all well and ready for Autumn?Winter :)
Where do i start with this stunning wedding and stunning couple? :)
When Rachel and Geoff had got got in touch me after being recommended by a friend , (thank you Joanne :) , i was very excited as it was to take place in Elmton, Derbyshire :)
A lot of photographers like to work in their own area but not me , i love to travel around not just the uk but anywhere in the world! I love the adventure and the endless possibilities when it comes to new landscapes and scenerys to photograph :)
The Whole style of Rachel & Geoffs wedding was right up my street! I love the rustic , whimsical and Bohemian kind of feel and look to a wedding and this wedding had exactly that and more!
Firstly let me set the scene, Elmton is a little village with beautiful fields and gorgeous little roads and lots of open air!
The wedding ceremony was to take place in a little chapel down the road from Rachels parents house, fact so close that Rachel walked there, which we got some lovely shots of all the neighbours in the roads taking pictures.
Once out of the chapel and we had got all our group shots we all walked down the road ( including the brass band whilst playing ) it created a really lovely atmosphere, it also felt very quirky and personal :)
We made our way down the road to where the reception was being held which was a lovely big white marquee in one of Rachels parents fields, everything looked so pretty, little candles hung on the trees, bails of hay outside for people to sit on overlooking endless fields, everything as a dream to photograph :)
Speaking of a dream to photograph.. Rachel and Geoff are such a beautiful couple , i couldn't really go wrong :) They were fab to photograph, so involve and so much fun and were such good sports walking through a slightly wet field when it turned dusk , but the shots were gorgeous! I love it when my Bride & Grooms trust me and just say ' go ahead we'll do whatever you want , we trust you!" , that most definatley means we are going to get some awesome shots and i hope you agree we did :)
Moving on to the evening , i think this wedding had some of my most favourite dancing moments! firstly we had the amazing first dance which started off a slow dance as the singer and the band ( which were really cool by the way , i shall find out their name and attach them to this blog ) performed the kooks song ' she moves in her own way " , then half way through stopped and began playing 'jamiroqui' canned heat , which Rachel and Geoff had secretly rehearsed some pretty cool dance moves too! everyone went wild and of course joined in ! the dance went down a storm and the atmosphere was amazing ! i filmed a few bits of this on my video which i will upload as soon as poss :)
From then on the dance floor was never empty, i do feel this has a lot to do with of course briliant fun guests but also I've found a really good funky band at the start gets everyone up dancing early on :)
Everyone was dancing and i left everyone with a big smile on my face , i could hear all the partying all the way down the road as we drove off as the sun had just set, what a brilliant wedding to be part of and be able to capture it with my photographs :)
Rachel & Geoff Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day , i with you all the Luck & Love in the world :)
