Last Saturday Chris and Charlotte tied the knot. What a day it was! Early on this chilly October morning the day began with a swim in the sea for Chris and his friends, This is where the story of the day begins, what a perfect start it was!!!
Thorpeness country club is avery special place for me, 5 years ago I watched my cousin get married there later that evening I got together with Michael (my husband). I just love everything about this gorgeous little village and from the moment I arrived for the wedding it felt like I was photographing a destination wedding. As it turns out, most of the guest were having a mini break on the lovely Suffolk coast while attending this wedding.
Charlotte’s dress was gorgeous! I get so excited when I see it hanging up waiting to be worn. One of my favourite parts of a wedding day is watching the bride getting ready with her nearest and dearest, I love the anticipation, the smell of champagne and helping straighten hair (I must learn to tie cravats!).
It was a beautiful day, with a moving church wedding, delicious canapés at the lovely Dolphin pub, great food, drink, hilarious speeches and an amazing band. I love you guys, Chris and Charlotte. I wish you a very happy future together and look forward to hearing about your adventures.
THANK YOU very much Sam Eastwood for assisting me, you were great!!!!
