I always have a great time photographing weddings but occasionally I get to shoot a wedding which is so much fun it leaves me inspired and immensely grateful to be doing this for a career. James & Lorraine’s wedding is already in the running for Wedding Of The Year as far as I’m concerned. The weather was glorious, the setting idyllic, their guests made us feel totally welcome and the couple went out of their way to help us get the shots we wanted.
You may remember Lorraine & James from their engagement shoot which got more blog comments than any other engagement shoot ever. After that we knew we were in for a fun day but it exceeded expectations on every level. I was helped on the day by uber-photographer Chris Barber.
The wedding was held in the beautiful town of Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds. Definitely one of the most picturesque areas of the English countryside. So here are just a few images from the main event…
Super-funky cake! (James’ last name is Busby) 🙂
Time for the speeches..
Check out those rings!
After dinner we escaped into the almost deserted town for some portraits of Lorraine & James. This is where we really have some fun..
Lorraine’s Dad stopped by to see what we were up to 🙂
James tries to get Lorraine’s attention..
These girls have been watching too much America’s Next Top Model…
And here’s our favourite wedding band… The Cartoon Kings
When I’m old, make sure I have a drink in each hand at all times!
Cotswold House is such a cool, funky venue we knew we had to use the interior for some evening portraits.
You’re married now James… 🙂
The party was so good, Chris & I ending up staying til the band finished at around midnight.
So there you have it – One of my favourite wedding couples yet. I can’t wait to see the finished album. And I think I have a new image for the studio wall 🙂
Thanks to Lorraine & James for making our job so much fun. We’re honoured to have been part of such a great day. Cheers.
