Weddings packed with personality, fun and a great crowd are my kind of weddings- and this was exactly that!  Charlotte and Andy brought their love of films into their day with a brilliant Harry Potter Theme.  I had spent time with Charlotte and Andy at their wedding venue, for their pre wedding shoot.  This was a great way to get to know them and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding day.

Charlotte and her bridesmaids were well ahead of schedule when I arrived and the rainy morning definitely did not dampen their spirits.  When the rain paused, the girls got out in the garden to chill with champagne before it was time to leave.  Obviously a very close group of friends, funny stories from their past were shared and it was a really fun start to the wedding day.

Following their church wedding ceremony, the wedding party went on to Nuthurst Grange Country House, a stunning wedding venue in Warwickshire.  We snuck out in between rain showers for photographs and guests enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere in the gorgeous setting.

The best man kept things lively by introducing a Harry Potter themed drinking game during his speech!  Very funny to photograph but I would have been on my knees if taking part!!

The same best man commandeered me into an impromptu ‘photo booth’ style, wedding frame scout round, to capture the evening guests.  Although I refused to follow him in to the ‘mens’ with it, it was a very funny way to capture people and everyone were great sports!

Loved being part of your beautiful day guys!
