Saturdays wedding was a pretty special one for me. I adore shooting on the coast and when you get married at the beautiful Titchwell Manor with a view of the sea my wonderful couples always make time to head down to the beach for their couple shots.
I headed to Titchwell nice and early where Becky was having makeup done by the lovely Melissa Abel. Surrounded by her girls and her mum all having drinks, bacon sardines and a real giggle it was a really lovely relaxed morning (thank you for the bacon butty Debbie!) I had met Becky and her mum Debbie a few weeks before the day and its safe to say Becky was a little nervous about the photos. She is not a fan of being the centre of attention but I think I put her mind at ease as she couldn’t have seemed more relaxed all morning.
She had chosen the most perfect dress for her and something beautifully light for a trip to the beach. She wanted to do a reveal to her dad Alan so we headed out into the beautiful Titchwell courtyard and safe ti say he was blown away.
I headed over to the Hotel and the beautiful conservatory where their ceremony would take place. Their guests were seated and they had an amazing violinist who played as Becky walked up the aisle as well as durning their drinks reception. They had such a lovely ceremony with a brilliant reading (one I had never heard before which is rare!) by Becky’s brother Alex and then they headed off down the aisle while the guests spilled outside and got ready for some epic confetti shots!
After this they had lots of lovely time enjoying the gardens in the sunshine before we did their few group shots and nipped off round the grounds for some couple shots. They sat for dinner and did their brilliant speeches before a rather delicious three course meal (Titchwell never disappoints with their food).
After dinner their guests enjoyed drinks, tea, coffee and yummy chocolates in the bar and the grounds before Tom, Becky and I nipped off to the beach for their second set of couple shots.
These two hadn’t planned an evening reception and chose to just have drinks with their guests back at the bar before heading off to their holiday cottage to enjoy their first evening as husband and wife… Pj’s and a cuppa (my kind of couple!)
I had such a special day with these guys and their families. One of the most chilled out weddings I have ever shot and I was treated just like a friend.
Huge thanks to Debbie (brides mum) for looking after me, Amy at Titchwell for being so wonderful to work with and Tom and Becky for planning such a chilled out day.
