Kirsty + Paul | Alrewas Church + Alrewas Hayes
Something Old, Something New, Something Blue and Something Borrowed
Something Old – a trip down memory lane, I have known many of the guests and Paul’s family for up to 40 years! – so much to catch up on. Rebecca & Stuart Lake were also guests – a couple whose wedding we had the pleasure of recording a number of years ago.
Something New – first ever wedding at this wonderful combination of church and venue.
Something Blue – the colour of the ribbon around the neck of a gorgeous Labrador puppy that Paul presented to Kirsty during the speeches – smooth operator!
Something Borrowed – a second photographer! Stuart James, a wonderful documentary wedding photographer joined with me today to provide Kirsty + Paul with a very special and completely unique two photographer coverage for the Special Day.
Stuart James was busy with pre wedding shots with Kirsty as I joined the guys, suited by Formal Affair for arrival shots at the lovely church of All Saints Alrewas. The bridesmaids followed by Kirsty soon arrived transported in Aarons pristine vintage cars. Kirsty looked absolutely stunning in her dress from Rebecca Jayne at Mix n Match, which was complimented by a bouquet from Fine Flowers.
A quick set of formal family photos preceded a pre dinner photo session at the very impressive and professionally run venue of Alrewas Hayes with it’s purpose built marquee impeccably dressed by Design Elegance.
A piper led the couple to the top table to join the guests for a veritable feast, followed by an entertaining set of speeches and Paul’s surprise for Kirsty.
Twilight photos in the courtyard, around the Lake and first dance pictures completed our coverage for the lovely couple.
Paul continued with the surprises – it was his song that was played for first dance!
