Shooting wedding photography can be very stressful at times but I needn’t have worried with one of my favourite weddings of the summer.
I knew Charlene and Will were going to be a brilliant couple to work with after we met last year. They were both so friendly and relaxed and I just knew their wedding was going to be so much fun!.
It was a great sunny July Saturday, I started at Charlene’s parents house to get a bit of the morning atmosphere with all the girls and Charlene’s dad, Keith. Having several bridesmaids around certainly made it a lively morning!
I then made my way to The church of St Mary and St Bartholomew in Hampton, Warwickshire, where the ceremony was actually taking place, although I did quickly pop over the road to The White Lion where a few of the guests were meeting beforehand for a few pre gig drinks! After the ceremony we all headed to the reception venue, The Beeches, which was just a short stroll away. The venue was decorated gorgeously with some lovely touches and details.
Some of my favourite photos from this wedding include the girls preparations, especially the one with Charlene’s dad and bridesmaids all looking in wonder at Charlene in her wedding dress. The loads of great portraits of the happy couple, some of the individual portraits of Charlene I think are just stunning. Also all the laughs during the speeches, (really proud of some of my candid/documentary shots from this wedding). Also the dance floor action, talk about a PARTY. Even David Beckham, yes David Beckham, made an appearance.
I hope you enjoy looking through this small selection of the wedding photos from Charlene and Will’s day. When finished you can check out some other real weddings from the Real Weddings page above or alternatively please click here to see some of my best wedding photography.
