I had the pleasure of capturing Emma and Gavin’s day. They enjoyed a gorgeous marquee wedding in Scawby, North Lincolnshire. Now just to clarify for all the ‘Yellow Bellies’ who may be reading this – I did have my passport stamped as I crossed the Humber Bridge!
I joined the boys at White Hoe Farm to photograph their preps. They were a really friendly, down to earth set of Groomsmen. Our groom, Gavin, was in fine form. He had been up at 6am setting up some surprises he had in store for later in the day. The North Lincolnshire farm country made a great backdrop for some punchy shots of the boys. The wheat hadn’t been cut so I was very happy!
I left the boys behind to go for a blast in the Aston Martin sports car Emma, our bride, had arranged this as a surprise. I made my way to the bride’s house to photograph her preps. Emma was very relaxed as her hair and make up was finished. Once she was in her dress, the girls’ photography began. A horse and cart arrived to take the girls to the church.
The ceremony and party
After a lovely ceremony and group shots at the church, it was back to Bride’s family home. The reception was set in a delightful marquee. The speeches came after the meal and were very emotional as Emma’s parents have both had health scares in the run up to the wedding. They wanted only the best for their daughter and son-in-law.
To show their gratitude for all their parent’s help, Emma and Gavin surprised them with incredible gifts. A vintage 1970’s motorcycle (to add to his other 9) for dad and the most gorgeous Cocker Spaniel puppy for mum!
Dave, the best man, was a legend (as were all the groomsmen). His facial expressions made me smile every time I pointed my lens at him. His face was most definitely ‘elastic’
I left the happy couple at 9pm with the dance floor full and pumping. I’ll see Emma and Gavin in about 4 weeks when they get back from their 3 week Safari in Zanzibar. Theirs was a stunning marquee wedding and I can’t wait to share their photos with them.
