Kay & Matt’s wonderful day was my first Hotel du Vin wedding and I hope it isn’t my last as I loved every minute of it. Perfect couple, beautiful hotel, gorgeous weather, stunning dress and fabulous friends & family – with these ingredients you can’t go wrong! As they are really camera shy Kay and Matt opted to swap the pre-wedding shoot for the silly SNAPstick booth in the evening which they knew, once a few drinks had been flowing, themselves and their friends would make great use of – and they did! Such a giggle!
I started the day flitting between Kay’s room with the girls getting ready and Matt & the lad’s as they prepped everything for the wedding. The ceremony room looked so beautiful – shabby chic with a French flair. The ceremony itself was lovely and after whilst all the guests sipped Pimms and congratulated the happy couple and some confetti was chucked about the staff swiftly changed the room around into a dining hall which looked equally as beautiful with one long banquette table in the centre.
It was such a hot day and with little shade up by the hotel we headed down into the private gardens for a few shots of just Kay & Matt together – despite them being really nervous about this bit we had a laugh and I managed to capture some lovely moments between the two of them that I hope they will cherish (and no doubt have a giggle at too!) 😉
Once the evening guests arrived and the first dance was done and the band had played a few tracks I set up the SNAPstick booth and for the next hour or so my sides ached with laughter! An absolutely unforgettable day… all that’s left to say is many congratulations to Kay & Matt and thank you so much for letting me share some photos from your day on my blog.
