What a treat this wedding was to photograph, in fact, if I were to get married all over again I think that Kirstin’s vintage glamour look would be a huge inspiration to me. I just loved everything about it. It takes a brave lady to go for red lips on her wedding day and Kirstin certainly pulled it off. It helped of course that she looks like a beautiful movie star (a cross between Rachel McAdam and Hilary Swank I decided) and that she had the talented Katy from The Gallery to create the look for her. After taking some photos of Kirstin getting ready and putting on that gorgeous dress at home (Martin Liana from Isabella Grace) I made my way to Bradbourne where Lewis was waiting with his best man. Lewis looked just as good in his very cool tweed suit and I really liked the fact that his best man wore a different suit which complimented their colour scheme perfectly.
Once again Nicola from Florian had worked her magic with the flowers which perfectly depicted them as a couple. Kirstin is Scottish and Lewis English, so the thistles and roses were a perfect tribute to this. The ceremony took place in the Great Hall and the string quartet played ‘She’ as Kirstin walked down the aisle….just beautiful. The room was then quickly turned around by Bradbourne ready for the wedding breakfast. As it had been so cold and rainy, Kirstin and Lewis had accepted the fact that most of their photos would probably take place inside Bradbourne, however, just before dinner we noticed that the rain had stopped and a fog had settled. The sun was beginning to set and this created the most beautiful light. I was SO excited and had to work quickly as I knew it wouldn’t last for long. Luckily Kirstin and Lewis were like models and made it very easy to get lots of shots in a short amount of time. We were careful not to get Kirstin’s beautiful dress dirty….so it just goes to show that it is still possible to get some beautiful photos even if its wet outside. If anything, Kirstin picking her dress up made for even prettier photos as you got to see those lovely Jimmy Choos.
