We were truly in awe when Sarah's bridesmaid Kay got up and sang Ave Maria, Lisa even welled up a little! And that's normally my job! And gloriously the sun continued to shine outside allowing us to get the group shots done there and then without the need for our floral umbrellas!
Another stroke of luck - the vintage rolls turned up in time to take the newly weds to the reception! Perfect. So off we whizzed to the
Quick and intuitive as ever Lisa constructed some amazing shots including a line up along the shutters (sacrificing comfort in the name of a good photo and lying on the pebbles!), groups along a groyne with the fabulous backdrop of the Pier in the background! And some funky photos of Sarah and Andrew in a telephone box! We felt like we could have snapped away for hours with so much for us to work with on the beach and Pier, and perfect light as the sun began to sink in the sky but we ran out of time and the Bride and Groom were keen to get to their guests!
The Hotel was simply lovely, lots of blue and vintage looking curtains and wallpaper and a fabulous cake - chocolate inside pink on the outside! And a mini icing version of Sarah and Andrew that Sarah had had made as a surprise for her hubby!
I pulled up a seat as Lisa did some reportage of the guests and the speeches and I must say I suddenly felt shattered! Lisa eventually appeared once the cake had been cut and agreed she was a little weary too. But luckily our job was done and we took ourselves off home, a lovely day with tonnes of lovely things right up our alley to photograph and we also had the pleasure of meeting Colin the toast master who no doubt we'll see again on the circuit! Phew... time to put me little tootsies up!
