Sarah & Dave's Wedding - Castle Green Hotel, Kendal, Cumbria
What an amazing day full of love, emotion and no shortage of smiles and laughter!
Dave and Sarah met in a nightclub down south, hit it off and have been together ever since. Some time ago they moved north up to Kendal to be closer to Sarah's family and fifteen years later decided it was about time they tied the knot.
Having been let down at the last minute by the photographer that they had booked to cover their big day (due to extenuating circumstances) they dropped me a line to see if I was available. With the wedding season coming towards the end for 2015 I had a holiday booked but as luck would have it had left the week before going away free to get organised. This was good news because their big day just happened to fall within this week and I was happy to put my plans on hold to help them out.
There wasn't much time to get to know each other but upon meeting them it wasn't long before I felt like I'd known them forever, it was clear that they were head over heels in love and I just knew that I had to photograph their wedding. I left in excitement with just two weeks until the big day.
Their September wedding at the Castle Green Hotel was planned to take place outside in the gazebo and we were all keeping our fingers crossed that the weather would hold out. Sure enough when the day arrived the sun came with it! In fact it couldn't have been a better day - it was warm, sunny and just perfect for a beautiful outdoor wedding. We even had two delightful ducks join us for the ceremony.
I always feel incredibly privileged to be asked to photograph a wedding and this one was no exception. Like with most of the clients I photograph, I don't just become their wedding photographer but also a lifelong friend. So, to my new friends Mr & Mrs Benjamin, a massive congratulations to you both! Thank you for asking me to document your big day. I wish you all the happiness in the world.
Below is a very small selection of some of my favourite photos from the day.
