As I was only just saying, it’s a joy to do what you love to do for people you love. Here are some photos from Andy and Alice’s wedding at St Alphege church, Solihull. This was a very special wedding for my family as we’ve known Alice since she was in my sister’s youth group. My excellent and clever sister Nicola is now a vicar, and came back to St. Alphege to conduct the marriage herself. It’s the first wedding we’ve done together and I can’t tell you how proud I am of her.
Alice and Andy planned all kinds of personal and creative touches to make their day special. I loved these bouquets made from pages of her favourite books, and the charming decorations at the reception at Wootton Park. Bundles of old books, hand decorated flower vases and teeny tiny succulents on the tables.
Taking a couple’s engagement photos is always a wonderful part of wedding photography, and I’m always proud when people mention them or I see them at the bride’s parents house. Here at John and Dilly’s lovely home I saw one of the photos on the piano, next to their own.
The wedding at St Alphege Solihull was as grand as it always is there, and then we went on to Wootton park for a gloriously fun reception with ceilidh dancing, marshmallow roasting and a lovely evening.
