Emily and Paul at Avington Park – Wedding Photographer Avington Park
I first met with just Emily and her Mum for a wedding consultation as Emily’s fiance Paul was away at sea during this time. I loved Emily from the start – she’s such a wonderful, genuine and down to earth person and I was thrilled when she said she would like me to be a part of her special day!
I met Paul at a later date when we visited their church early Spring time. Paul is as equally as lovely as Emily and I knew their wedding would be a wonderful day to be a part of!
Emily and Paul married on 1st August 2015, on a warm sunny day. Emily’s day began at her parents cottage where she was getting ready with her bridesmaids. The girls looked lovely – they wore dark blue dresses and Emily had the most stunning bridal gown on! It had a flattering ‘V’ neckline and floral lace straps which carried on the floral pattern down the body of the dress. Emily wore her hair in an effortless half up and half down style with a veil and some pretty roses in her hair. She looked stunning! She had the most beautiful horse and carriage to take her and her Dad to the church.
Paul looked incredible in his Naval uniform, as did all his Ushers and the Best Man. He didn’t seem at all nervous on the outside but I think inside he was slightly!
The ceremony was so sweet and very relaxed. Emily and Paul said their vows calmly and carefully without any mistakes.
As the couple exited the church they left under a sword arch constructed by the rest of the Naval men. We then continued with group photos around the back of the church before heading on over to Avington Park. Emily and Paul were taken on a little ride together with the horse and carriage before travelling the rest of the journey by car.
As I arrived at Avington I had time to capture their gorgeous table layouts and amazing cake – complete with little bride and groom figurines! After Emily and Paul arrived we had time for couple shots before they all made their way into dinner.
The rest of the evening was really relaxed. Guests could enjoy a tea or coffee in the front reception room at Avington, or could venture back outside to enjoy the sun setting.
As the first dance began, everyone started to join in with the celebrations, dancing with the happy couple.
Thanks so much to a wonderful couple for booking me – you’re both so lovely and I wish you a long and happy life together. x x x
