On Saturday 4th I had the privilege of photographing Shani & Gary's Wedding. I originally met them at the I Do Doncaster Racecourse Wedding Exhibition but then again when they came to my studio for my Wedding Open Day.
Sometimes it seems such a long time since people booked, and other times it seems two seconds away!
I started with Shani at her parents house which is just a short walk from the Church in which she was to be married. The house was a busy hive of people, drop offs and pick ups, nerves and feeling sick - and the grooms house I heard was just as bad.
Shani wore a pair of gorgeous Vivienne Westwood Shoes and her "Something Old - Something Borrowed" was a 72-year-old watch which her Nan, Mum and Sister had also worn on their Wedding Day too.
We headed off to the Church where Gary was waiting, only a small but beautiful church where Shani was walked down the aisle by her dad. The ceremony included two readings and three hymns, and plenty of emotion.
Outside the Church we started the family group photographs. Shani & Gary had originally intended to get married in the Town Hall as they wanted something small and intimate, and stuck to their 40 guests.
After the Church, the guests headed to the Keepmoat Stadium where the reception was to be held, where Shani, Gary, their daughter Lexie-Mai and I headed to the Lakeside for a few photographs to be taken by the fountain and spend a little time on their own before joining all the rest of their guests.
What a lovely happy, and in love family they are!
I continued photographing on into the evening including emotional speeches, first dance and capturing lots of other memories along the way. Thank you Mr & Mrs Turner for choosing me to be your Wedding Photographer - I had a lovely day! X
