The day started for me at Knotts Salon in Nottingham Road where Brigitte and her bridesmaids were having their hair and make-up done. The boys got ready at Springholm which is just down the road from Providence, and the girls finished getting ready at Farside Farm which is also on the same road as Providence.
Some wedding dresses have lace that needs to be tied, others have a zip with a clip at the top. Brigitte’s zipped up fine, but it was too tight to clip. None of the bridesmaids could clip it, so I was asked to try clip it which didn’t happen either, then Brigitte’s dad had a go too. Eventually it was decided that it had to be sewed up at the top. All of this was going on while Ryan waited anxiously at the chapel for his bride. The general perception is that if the bride is late then it’s generally because of the damn photographer, but I promise it wasn’t me!
There was clearly some anticipation in the chapel because as I entered I saw about 100 sets of eyes turn round and look at me, expecting a beautiful bride in a lovely white wedding dress. Instead they got a man dressed in black carrying a bag and a big camera. Oops, sorry it’s just the photographer. The bride is still coming.
The rest of the day was an absolute breeze, and we even had a bit of a winter sunset during the creative shoot. Dave Atkinson and his lovely wife Gillian from Brand New Day Imaging were there to do the video.
Thank you so much for your hospitality Ryan & Brigitte, it was an honour capturing your big day.
