When Danni & Shaun first booked with me I was super excited about finding out that their wedding venue was in the New Forest - who wouldn't be. I met with both Danni & Shaun before their big day and instantly knew that we were going to get on - they're both totally laid back and lots of fun - so right up my street. For the first time ever, I spoke to the Groom more than the bride in the lead up to their big day. Shaun was on top of everything bless him, it was lovely to see a male show such an interest!
When arriving at Danni's parents house for the bridal prep shots, I was greeted by a rather tasty bacon sandwich - curtesy of her dad, ah bliss! Danni is not only a lovely lady, but so incredibly easy to get along with, as were her gorgeous bridesmaids and parents. Danni kept calm and collected throughout her bridal prep, shedding the odd tear here and there - what else can you expect on your wedding day? When it was time to leave for the church, her parents surprised her with a Rolls Royce (she was expecting a Jag), which was a fab touch and made for a very emotional photograph.
The church was big and beautiful, which is always a bonus for me, as it means that I don't have to stand stranded in one spot for 40 minutes...
After the ceremony I drove over to their venue, the drive through the New Forest was even more gorgeous than I remembered it being. Horses and fields were the only thing in sight and I have to admit I was super excited to get some couple shots in.
The rest of the day flowed seamlessly, Danni & Shaun were both so relaxed and really made the most of their big day. I have to say that I have never laughed so hard during couple shots - these two had me in stitches and were so much fun to photograph.
D&S it was an absolute pleasure to photograph your big day and thank you for looking after me so wonderfully! You even managed to sneak me a cheeky Creme Brûlée - heaven! I'm sorry that your preview has taken me so long - bloody holiday and this hot weather has held me up slightly. But I hope that you love them as much as I do xxx
