"Wow! One of the reasons we chose you was your style of photography and the way you take such vibrant photos, and honestly we couldn’t be happier. Again thank you both so much....unimaginably excited to see the full set."
The timing of Hannah and Paul’s preview blog post couldn’t be better. Toby and I spent last weekend at The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza meeting lots of couples, and catching up with tonnes of great wedding suppliers. The Autumn 2018 E.W.E. show is where we originally met Hannah, and her wedding day to Paul was full of lots of E.W.E. people. During Hannah and Paul's Peanut-filled pre-wedding shoot they told us that the amazing Couture Company were creating Hannah’s dress, and the stylish and talented Karlus G would be tailoring Paul’s suit.
The day started wit me dropping Toby off at Hannah and Paul’s home, where Paul and Peanut were getting ready. Peanut had a special ring-bearing flower collar to be fitted! I headed over to Hannah’s mum’s house to capture Hannah and her bridesmaids getting ready. When I arrived, Lydia of LJRmakeup was working her magic in the conservatory. Watching the proceedings from the kitchen, and probably wondering what was going on, was Jet the Black Labrador. I couldn’t resist a regular visit to to let him know what a good boy he was.
Hannah’s amazing dress was gothic in theme, with autumnal tones, black accents, skeletal leaves embroidered, with layers of soft tuiles and silk organzas forming a gorgeous blend of tones and a quirky hi-lo hemline. The gown is suitable called called Lolita.
It was an unpredictable day weather-wise, and we’d had a lot of rain that morning. Luckily there was a respite from the downpours as Paul and his groom’s party walked the short distance from the house to their local church: St Peters in Martley, where Paul and Peanut were to await Hannah for their ceremony.
Before Hannah, her bridal party, and I set off to St Peters we first stopped off at St Kenelms Church. Hannah’s dad is buried in the church graveyard and she wanted to visit him before exchanging vows with Paul. Their church ceremony was led by Auntie Barbara who was a guest reverend at the church that day, so that she could perform the ceremony. It was lovely that Hannah and Paul could be married by a family member, and made the ceremony even more personal.
The weather remained chilly but dry for us all as we left the church. It meant we were able to capture a confetti shower outside the church and head over to Martley Memorial Hall before the rain the grey clouds were promising actually fell.
Safe inside the village hall from the showers, Hannah, Paul and their guests enjoyed an impressive spread laid out by Rob. Including cheeses from Broome Cheese, and a pile of pies from The Wire Pie Company. Their theme was suitably gothic for the time of year, with skulls and bats adorning every corner of the hall, pretty much all of which had been thought up, organised, and placed by Hannah and Paul themselves. A friend; Amy Momo created their wedding cake, topped with awesome horror art dolls by Pins & Needles, another great person from E.W.E.
All in all it was a very relaxed and authentic reception party, rounded off with The Best Men (yes you guessed it, another brilliant E.W.E supplier) DJing a great playlist for Hannah and Paul’s dance floor. The star of the dance floor has to be little Olivia who was throwing some impressive shapes putting all the adults to shame.
Hannah, Paul, thank you for letting us be part of your day and choosing us to capture your memories for you. We hope you love your little preview, a small taster of more to come!
To everyone else reading this post, I think you’ll agree that Hannah and Paul pulled together some amazing styling, from Hannah’s amazing dress, Paul’s suit with it’s awesome skull lining, all the brilliant gothic touches, and of course Peanut and Jet the dogs.
