Here are the preview wedding photographs for Clare and Liam who were married yesterday at St Martins Church, Hull and held their marque reception at Hessle Rugby Club. It was a bright sunny day when we arrived at the brides parents house and were made very welcome by Janice and Les. The brides hair was done by Bows Hair and her make up by Beauty by Ellie Rose. Clare looked lovely in her dress by Elite Bridal and the picture was completed by her bouquet from Floral Lounge. The house was filled with laughter and excited chatter whilst bridesmaids, Clare, Helen, Eleanor, Becky and Beckie had their hair and make up done. Time slipped away and before we knew it, it was time to take a sort drive to the church to meet up with groom Liam, and his bestman Jamie and ushers Chris, Nathan and Phil. Guests began to arrive and everyone waited excitedly for the arrival of the bride. The camper van from Retro Campers was soon in sight and Clare was helped out by Dad and her bridemaids. The service was lovely and guests happily exited the church into the summer sunshine. After the formal group photographs, everyone was transported to the reception in an open top bus, whilst the happy couple enjoyed their first few moments together as husband and wife in the camper van. The marque echoed the pastel theme and was decorated by Belle Bijou, and whilst the barbecue was being prepared, Clare and Liam enjoyed a celebratory drink outside in the sunshine with their family and friends! We headed off to do a few more photographs before the meal, and I took a bit of a risk to get the lead image for this blog, and ended up knee deep in the mud banks on the Humber. My trusty wellies sunk very nicely as I waded out, and at one point, I did wonder whether or not I would make it out again! Clare and Liam were such sports balancing carefully on the breakers and I heaved a sigh of relief when we all managed to get back to the car unscathed! By the time we returned, the food was ready and everyone headed into the marque. The atmosphere inside was wonderful and a good time was had by all. Speeches delivered by the brides father, the groom and best man all caused much laughter and almost as many tears, with the Toastmaster adding to the sense of fun, encouraging a variety of Mexican waves and one or two kisses! From start to finish this day was just one big bundle of joy and it was a real pleasure to be part of it. Clare and Liam are a fabulous, caring and fun loving couple and I hope that we have managed to capture just a little of their spirit and joie de vivre! We had great fun working with them, wish them every happiness in their future life together and look forward to sharing the rest of their wedding photographs with them soon.
