Kelly & Matthew decided their wedding day would be a family celebration day and they would have their son Harvey’s Christening at the same service. Their chosen Church was the picturesque St Mary’s in Ruabon with a wedding breakfast and christening party to follow at the equally picturesque setting of our local venue – The Lion Quays Hotel and Spa.
The coverage began with the bridal preparations and some fun shots of the girls getting ready. On to the church to meet Matthew and the very handsome Harvey all ready for the celebratory day ahead. We got some fantastic shots of Harvey in his suit and of course some equally great shots of Matthew and his best man – who was also his Dad! Some natural shots of the guests arriving and then the arrival of the bridesmaids, before Kelly arrived with her Dad in the wedding car.
Some fantastic shots of the beautiful bride and Dad walking up to the Church and then down the aisle to meet her future husband. The wedding ceremony was first and the couple exchanged their vows and rings before signing the register. Then it was Harveys turn, and some great shots of him being Christening with all his family around him.
More natural shots of the couple and their guests outside the Church before we took some traditional group shots here.
After a confetti shot at the Church we moved on then to the stunning Lion Quays Hotel. A few shots of the bride and groom arriving then a full group shot before I took the couple off for half an hour to capture some more romantic shots around the gardens and to allow their guest to mingle and enjoy a drink before the weding breakfast. Finishing of with some shots in the bridal suite we then rejoined the guests to the hotel and couples requested time (as always) for their wedding breakfast. Some great shots of the couple and their guests being entertained by the speeches concluded the daytime coverage.
After a short break it was time for more relaxed coverage of the guests around the tables awaiting the first dance and the cutting of not one but two cakes – the wedding cake and Harveys christening cake. The first dance followed and not to be left out, Harvey took to the floor to clap for his Mummy and Daddy. Almost 400 fully edited images for Kelly and Matthew to remember this family celebration day, and here are my favourite selections from the day ….
