Good Afternoon lovely people! :) i sit here in starbucks on a rainy Tuesday catching up on all of last years blogs , but i have a gorgeous wedding to show you today something pretty to cheer you up on this rainy day!
Vicki and Sam are a sweet young couple in love i had the delight of capturing.
I fell in love with everything about their wedding, the style, the venue their love for each other and particularly how everything seemed homemade , a DO IT YOURSELF wedding. More and more people are doing this now, not only because sometimes it can really help keep some of your costs down but because everything is more appreciated because everyone has helped create something for your special day so it just kind of feels more ....special. The whole look of everything can look really pretty and rustic too!
From the moment i arrived to Vicki, all the bridesmaids were sat at the dining table making button holes and creating decorations for the day, Vicki doing her mums makeup , it all just felt so lovely that everyone was pitching in.
Sam is very creative and a joiner by trade ( Sam Larkin Joinery and Construction ) and even made their very own wooden Photo Booth , by far the best Photo Booth I've actually seen at any wedding it was so quirky! He also made wooden boards with words written on with lights! i loved it! There was so much effort that had been put in and it really showed! ( you can see below this blog all the contact details for their suppliers )
The wedding ceremony was really sweet, it was held at their family church, the reverend was funny, friendly and kind. After the ceremony Vicki and Sam got some shots in a really cool nit age car and after confetti and group shots i met them at constellations in Liverpool where their reception was held.
This is the first time i had been to this venue and i have to say i LOVED it, it is totally my kind of venue, its quirky, it has personality, theres so much to photograph there, again everything has that rustic feel which tied in to vicki and same theme, The staff there were great too, really helpful and friendly and fun!. constellations has a gorgeous outdoor terrace which is buzzing with a really cool atmosphere, that part of the venue it was open to the public but i liked that, it created a good atmosphere for anyone wanting to go outside for a it, this is where we got the really fun shots of vicki and sam playing table tennis! :)
Vicki and Sam were really up for exploring the surroundings with me, i love it when i have adventurous bride and grooms i think everyone who who follows me knows that :)
Nearby to constellations was an abandoned skateboarding park, we snook in through the metal gates and had a little impromptu shoot there, the pictures came out really lovely, Vicki and sam are amazing to photograph, they are very much inlove, really tactile with eacthother, that 'i can't stop looking at you' 'cant stop touching you' kind of love ! my favourite kind of love to photograph of course :)
The evening then followed with hilarious speeches and a brilliant first dance ending with Vicki throwing her bouquet :) I left everyone on the dancefloor having the time of their lives!
Thank you Vicki and Sam for letting me be part of your lives that day and capturing your story it was such a wonderful wedding to be part of!
