A winter's wedding tale

Helena & Nick's Wedding, Berkshire

I had such a fun morning with Helena and her Bridesmaids getting ready for her big day. I adore covering the Bridal prep stage of a wedding. There are such a range of emotions on display; nerves, excitement, anticipation, happiness. I always try my best to capture them all to give a real feel of the day. I also use this time to photograph details such as the wedding stationary, dresses, jewellery, flowers....all the little details that Helena and Nick have spent the last few months (or years!) planning and preparing for.

The girls all looked fabulous and headed off for the Church. Decorated with flowers, the stunning lychgate provided us with a wonderful backdrop for photos. After a beautiful ceremony we then made our way to the fabulous Great House at Sonning (and managed to avoid the rain clouds!)

It was such a happy day, celebrating at the contemporary riverside venue in Sonning. Dripping in gorgeousness the team did a wonderful job setting the room up for the newlyweds.
Once we had finished a chilly session of couple and group shots, everyone was glad to get inside and warm up with a celebratory drink to toast the happy couple. 

There was fun with sparklers, thoughtful details throughout the venue, a fabulous team of suppliers...Helena & Nick really had created a wonderful wedding day.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Godleman!
