About Chris & Jaimie and their wedding...
Chris and Jaimie's wedding was filled with fun, laughter, romance, peonies, roses, hot sunshine, and giant balloons.
I first met Chris and Jaimie back in 2012 when I photographed their beautiful baby girl Isabelle, just a few days old. I was over the moon when they asked me to be their wedding photographer and felt very honoured to be involved in creating more precious memories for them.
Chris and Jaimie are both very easy-going and fun to be around, they felt like old friends from the start and have been a joy to work with. This relaxed approach meant I could soak up the atmosphere and capture the day as it happened, combined with portraits of themselves and their guests.
Jaimie and bridesmaids Paige, Cery and Ruth were very cool, calm and collected when I arrived to photograph the morning preparations, despite the blazing summer sunshine outside.
Chris and Jaimie's ceremony was held at Holy Trinity Church in Wolverton, Milton Keynes, a beautiful church with stunning surrounding countryside. We had a little wait before the ceremony, which offered the perfect opportunity for a few portraits of the excited, nervous bride.
The Mercure Abbey Hill Hotel was a short 5 minute car ride from the church. Guests were greeted with welcomed glasses of Pimms and Orange juice, a lovely start to a blissfully sunny afternoon. A large decked canopy by the golf course was the perfect area for the group portraits, Isabelle enjoyed playing peek-a-boo through the gaps!
Bride and Groom Portraits
A little while after dinner we went back outside for the bride and groom portraits (one of my favourite parts of the day) I adore capturing the love and excitement of the couple. The giant balloons were a great way of making the day unique and created a lot of laughter trying to get them in the right spot (just before Chris accidentally lets go).
After dinner it was time for the speeches, as always the speeches provided lots of great expressions for the photographs, not forgetting the tears. Shortly followed by the cake cutting and first dance, which really got the party started... and the guests danced the night away!
