Sammy and Charlie are THE loveliest couple ever- we were so excited for their fun filled wedding day and couldn’t believe it had arrived already!
They had planned a small and intimate wedding day at Normanton Church followed by a reception at the amazing Toft Hotel, Bourne. With just 14 guests we really got to know them all and it was a pleasure.
Sammy was beyond excited and nervous when we met her with the girls in the morning. We had champagne corks flying all over the place- including a near-miss for Andy and his camera- it was great fun! After photographing the dresses and shoes, we made our way to meet Charlie, the groom.
He was chilling at his parents’ home with his best man, they both looked awesome and the weather was AMAZING! He was so calm about the wedding due to the righteous hangover he had from the night before- poor thing! Despite the hangover he scrubbed up well and we left them to enjoy the last half an hour to themselves and arrived at the Church in time to see the bride arrive.
Sammy had decided the hide at the back of Normanton Church and have ‘the walk’ down the aisle, shortly after she had hidden, their guests arrived and so did the groom. Sammy looked incredible as she walked down the aisle and we even saw a few tears from the groom- yes Charlie we saw! After a fantastic ceremony, we captured some photographs of friends and family congratulating the happy couple whilst we waited for the random rain shower to disappear!
The atmosphere was brilliant, full of giggles and laughter – they were all having such an awesome time, as were we! The sun appeared again, so we used this opportunity to take some photographs of them all together and just the bride and groom too. They giggled their way through the photographs at Normanton Church before heading back to Toft Hotel.
They had booked a smaller dining room at Toft Hotel that the bride and groom had decorated beautifully. With handmade wedding favours, personalised key rings and lucky scratch cards, it looked beautiful. It was also super cute that they had made us favours too- with photographs of us on! Thank you guys- we love them (and we won £5 on the scratch card you gave us ;-))
We snuck out just as the sun was going down with the bride and groom for some wedding photographs at Toft Hotel. At their engagement shoot, we met their beautiful dog Harvey- and he was at Toft waiting for the newlyweds- he is awesome. After their meal and informal speeches, we left them to enjoy the rest of their evening.
Thank you guys for such an amazing day and congratulations!
