Autumn at it's best....

It was freezing the day before when I met Abbie & TJ for in the church just before their final rehearsal. I also feared that it might turn out to be wet. My fears were unfounded....

Wedding Photography3088_027 You can't see the cold of the day, but the light streaming through the windows shows you just what a treat I had photographing this lovely bride getting ready at the Carlton Mitre at Hampton Court. Abbie seemed quite composed as her sisters, nieces, Mum and Dad busied themselves.

Finally Abbie was ready for the dress and Wow she looked stunning...

3088_047 3088_049 A lovely local wedding this for me as The Mitre is a venue I am recommended at at is only a mile or so from where I live. I then skipped off to see TJ and his groomsmen at St. Paul's just around the corner in East Molesey.

3088_055 As you can see TJ and crew looked great too - I detected a few nerves and wnating to get on with things though...3088_063 When the time came for Abbie to arrive she did so in style and before a few of the guests (terrible traffic that day) - so we sent her around the block so the church had time to fill up. Not sure what this did for TJ's nerves... 3088_066 3088_080 3088_082 3088_085

I knew we had to be quick to get some photographs done before the parks Police came along. Sure enough it was about 2 minutes before they arrived and moved us on.
We were lucky that he wasn't too much of an offical and I managed to get a nice shot of the newlyweds in the Park with deer in the background.3088_182 Tables were (rather optimistically) set up for drinks outside at Pembroke Lodge. It was really cold but there was beautiful light so I really encouraged everyone to brave the elements for some groups before they went in.

3088_234 3088_235 Abbie wore such a beautiful dress that wherever possible we left her fluffy warm shawl off but I was so pleased she thought of it and used it for some shots...3088_211 3088_246

Inside, The Lord John Russell Suite looked beautiful and benefitted from being upstairs and receiving superb Autumn light.3088_270 3088_273

Thankfully the speeches too sparkled and by that time the light had faded but I used my wireless flashes to get good quality shots during the fun...3088_325 3088_337 3088_363 I left the happy couple dance the night away on what was a memorable day.....
