Smaller weddings are so relaxed and I love these as much as the hustle and bustle of a large wedding.
After a tranquil trip across Windermere on the car ferry, I arrived early at Sawrey House on the morning to do Adele’s hair and makeup and also her Mum’s hair and Daniel’s Mum’s hair and makeup. It is a great way for people to get to know me before I start taking pictures and we all had a lovely relaxed morning. I like providing all 3 services and creating the whole look to then capture it on camera.
After an emotional ceremony, (Adele walked into an Elvis Presley tune which was a favourite of the groom and he had not expected it). we got some great images in the garden and walked up the lane to Beatrix Potter’s cottage – Hill Top. It was lovely to photograph here and the guide who was dressed as Beatrix potter was very helpful and accommodating, to let us use the garden.
The mother of the groom made an absolutely beautiful wedding cake which she should be very proud of.
I left the wedding party at 5pm and enjoyed coming back to edit their images.
