I met with Rowena early in the morning at her house for bridal prep; she was perfectly calm but excited. Even though it’s been 15 years since I’ve known her, she hasn’t changed a bit so I felt really comfortable with her, like I’d known her the entire time.
Rowena is very laid back and doesn’t tend to get stressed easily, the ideal bride really 🙂
Rowena looked stunning in her gorgeous dress from Bellissimo with a hint of pregnancy from her tiny bump at 4 months.
I stayed with Rowena until her finishing touches were done and then drove to Tankersley Manor to meet with Scott and his groomsmen. They all looked very dapper and even showed a bit of leg for the photos until Rowena arrived 😉
The ceremony was really beautiful and when Rowena said her vows and promised to be faithful, she really gave this some thought before laughter ran out, it was a very funny moment, but she got there!
The weather was forecast to throw it down so whilst we had a few minutes, we nipped to a nearby field to get a couple of bride & groom shots and also sink into quick-sand-like sludge (well, I did anyway) 😉
Within minutes of getting back, it decided to throw it down so we all piled indoors where I’d set up lights to take some group shots, before heading into the main hall for speeches and the meal.
After announcing that they will be having a baby girl in the speeches (which caused uproar in the tear department), they ate, got merry and proceeded with the first dance whilst I surprised them with an evening slideshow of images I had took in the day. It all went down a storm so we finished off the evening with fun and frivolity in a Photobooth. Big thanks to Scott & Rowena for letting me be a part of their big day 😉
And a few from the Photobooth 😉
