The Wedding of Sara & Chris
I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of Sara and Chris on Saturday, a great couple that I first met over a year ago. The time had flown by since then; we had met recently for their pre-wedding photo shoot and now it was their big day.
After a week of sunshine the weather forecast was changeable so I was unsure how the day would pan out when I left in the morning to meet Sara and her bridesmaids. I arrived at her house to find the girls in high spirits; the talented Kay Booth was getting to work on makeup and Chief Bridesmaid Rachel was pouring the Prosecco. By the time I left to meet Chris and the guys I think Sara was starting to get a little nervous.
Chris was with Best Man Pat and the rest of his Ushers at Dalton St Mary’s Church, we had a little wait while the earlier wedding cleared from the grounds and then we took the opportunity to take a few photos before Sara and the girls arrived. A lovely service followed and before you knew it Sara and Chris were married, the new Mr and Mrs Tyson!
Sadly Sara’s Dad was in hospital and wasn’t able to make the wedding but we left the church and called in to visit him which was lovely and we managed a couple of photos. On route to the Fairfield for the reception we called at Furness Abbey to take advantage of the weather and get some lovely bridal portraits before the rain that was forecast descended upon us.
When we arrived at the Fairfield the guests were enjoying drinks outside in the sunshine while the children played on the lawn. Timing was perfect as the rain arrived just as everyone was called inside for the speeches and following the meal a magician entertained the guests before the disco arrived for the evening.
Once the disco was up and running Sara and Chris took to the dance floor for their first dance, love was in the air as many other couples joined them at the end of their dance. I left not long after this and the girls were certainly having fun on the dance floor, no doubt they had a great evening.
Thanks again for choosing me as your photographer, it was a pleasure to be a part of your day.
Congratulations and best wishes for your future together.
