A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Antonia and Mark over in Halifax.
The day started with some bridal prep at Antonia's sister's house - conveniently just down the road from her mum's, which is where I turned up to do the prep shots! We had a good laugh during the prep, with plenty of entertainment from the kids and the smallest dog I've ever seen.
We wrapped up the prep and did a pretty cool bridal march down the road to the wedding car waiting at Toni's mum and dad's. I think I actually started to whistle the Reservoir Dogs theme as everyone tromped down the street.
On to the church.
The ceremony was held in Christ Church, Mount Pellon.
Mark was standing tall in church, looking pretty smart in dress uniform. I tried not to make too much noise as I clattered in - after all, he did have a sword!
The bridal party soon moved in, and it was swiftly on to the vows. (There's an inside joke there too!)
The seriousness of the vows was soon broken when the ringbearer entered - Toni and Mark's English Bulldog in a little dress of her own! It wasn't the most glamorous aisle walk - especially when she needed a bit of dragging to get to the required spot. I think even the vicar laughed!
The vows were soon done, rings were on and confetti was thrown. Well, shot.
On to the reception.
The reception was held at the Moorlands Inn, Ogden.
The drinks were soon flowing, food was served and then it was time for the speeches.
And I mean time.
These were probably the longest speeches that I've ever witnessed - it seems like you can't get a soldier off the mike when they start! I proper laughed out loud with everyone else though.
The cake was soon cut and the dancefloor called. The first dance was lovely, the dance with the kids was super cute and the Father - Daughter dance just straight reduced people to tears.
I think they were shooting out emotions and tears from those confetti canons!
Oh, and then there was a dance off - and I had to LOL again!
Proper fun day, start to finish.
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Connell and thanks for having me - I had an awesome time.
Here's a few pictures from their day.
Thought I'd start this little blog to let people know what we get up to. Some personal stuff thrown in the mix too.
