Real Wedding: Prue and Greig

Yesterday I got to shoot Prue & Greig's Wedding at The Stables, High Melton.

I first met Prue, when she contacted me regarding her Wedding Photography, we discussed her venue, and the weather in November - and of course, finding out exactly what she wanted when Greig and herself went on to book me.

We started yesterday morning at Salon 10, Doncaster, where the hair was being done, and then the make-up artist came and started working on the finishing touches.

Throughout their wedding planning, I loved hearing how Prue and Greig met in Australia, whilst he was over there on his 6 months cricket tour, and how love literally made her travel and live half way around the world. 

Prue and Greig's Wedding was full of personalisation, from the Apron's with "Mother of the Bride" and "Amazeballs Hairdresser" to the Bride and Bridesmaids personalised dressing gowns. However, Prue was a bit gutted that she couldn't get the little bridesmaid Ugg boots embroidered!

The Ceremony took place at the Old Hall at The Stables, High Melton. Where a beautiful string quartet played whilst guests awaited Prue to arrive, and then played her down the aisle, to her husband to be. 

So towards the end of November, we were expecting torrential rain, like we have been experiencing, but no, the sunshine came out, and although it dropped a little cold, we were able to get some lovely shots outside, of the guests - and then the Bride and Groom on their own.

Prue's Mum and Sister had travelled over from Australia, and have been over almost a month, helping Prue with the final preparations for her Wedding. 

Prue's veil, was amazing, and she definitely knew she wanted a "veil toss" shot, and we didn't need much help with the November breeze. 

And everyone loves a good Confetti shot! 

By this point the sun was setting, and it was definitely getting a little cold, so we all headed inside, to where the meal was about to start.

The details that Prue and Greig had put into the Wedding was truly amazing.
Every seat had a preserve, a personalised shot glass, and a shot for the final toast of speeches.
But not only that - the children had "suitcases" with toys and things in, and personalised bags with colouring books in - and the little babies had personalised bibs!

But my favourite one, was each seat-place was a photograph of that guest. From "normal" to downright silly.

The speeches drew plenty of laughs, and tears - but there are no words to express how much the two families have come together, for a love that came from separate ends of the world.

We popped outside for some after dark photographs - and it was warmer than it was that afternoon. Before going back inside to watch the fun of the night commence!

I want to say a massive thank-you to Sarah Riley Photography, for second shooting with me on the day.
I want to wish a fabulous time to Prue and Greig on their trip to Australia, their Cliffe-Top Ribbon tying ceremony, and their honeymoon in New York.

And I want to thank you for booking Blue Lights Photography for their special day.

I normally don't do a blog post with this many images, especially the day after the Wedding, however with Mr and Mrs Batty not returning to the UK until 2013, then I said I would do a blog post so they were able to show their family and friends some of their images from their Big Day in the UK.
