When I started out on this crazy job as a wedding photographer, I can clearly remember stumbling upon a fellow photographers blog post from a wedding at Aynhoe Park. It stood out!! It looked crazy, in a crazy good way! An incredible house full of stuffed animals, iconic furniture, modern design and art. As a former design student, it ticked so many inspirational boxes.
Well, last Thursday, I finally got to shoot there. It didn’t disappoint. Nor did Rachel and Verron, a couple full of love, emotion and plenty of good old humour!!
You may be wondering, “why is Rachel wearing a blindfold below?”, well, there’s a perfectly simple explanation for this…. Rachel and Verron had the “official” signing of the documents first thing in the morning, surrounded by immediate family and very close friends. Rachel decided t that the gospel ceremony they had planned for the afternoon would be the first time she’d see her new husband on her wedding day, hence the blindfold. It made for a truly amazing and unique ceremony in the morning, but also heightened the emotion and anticipation for when she finally did walk down the aisle later on that afternoon. Not a bad Thursday at all;
What a cool idea with not seeing each other during the legal bit, and the shot depicts is perfectly! Socks rocking photography throughout the set, as always. xx
That venue… Insane. Ly. Cool! Loved the triple peep silhouette shot and countless others dude! Looks like it was a lovely day.
Great work Mr Docker! And those are definitely the best bridesmaid dresses EVER! Quality all round.
