First off was a stop to see everybody getting ready before the church service. How about these gorgeous flowers?!
I'm pleased to say that this smile set the tone for the rest of the day :)
Ruth's dad was a true gentleman, and very patient!
We got to church in time to see the fellas arriving. Although we did set this shot up, I like to think it's informal looking enough to work with the relaxed type of coverage we offer.
Back to being sneaky...
The shot below has to be one of my favourites I think.
We made our usual promise to the minister to not be intrusive, and we got some truly lovely shots looking down the aisle from the back, including this sneaky one of our young friend :)
We headed outside for a very brief few shots by the doorway, but below is a more accurate record of the kind of weather we were up against. So we went in.
After some minor fixing up, we were good to go for some family shots inside the cosy church.
By the time we made it to Shottle Hall, the weather had decided to be kinder to us, so we made the most of the chance to get some lovely shots around the gardens and grounds.
It seems everybody was getting in on the photo sharing.
Below is Ruth's outdoor gear :) A quiet moment caught just before we went on our main photowalk...
Then it was off with the jacket, a few poses, and on our way!
Not only did the weather play ball, it outdid all our expectations and gave me some gorgeous afternoon light to play with!
Some, though, decided to stay in and play...
We also organised a short evening photo session for George & Ruth, to capture the first dance and a few extra wedding portraits.
Congratulations Ruth & George!
