I met with Emma and Adam last year and we instantly clicked – I completely understood Emma’s wavelength on what she wanted for their wedding. I think at that meeting all three of us talked about absolutely everything – it felt like I was just hanging out with 2 friends I had known forever – so was really looking forward to sharing in their big day.
That’s one thing I feel is the most important thing when it comes to wedding photography – a connection. Understanding personality, helps me understanding you as a couple and that helps an understanding of each other.
They had chosen Cleatham hall in Lincolnshire as their wedding venue, as it fit with their 1920’s ‘Great Gatsby’ inspired theme. Cleatham hall is a country manor situated in its own private grounds – perfect for those smaller weddings just like theirs. I was over the moon when Emma & Adam said they wanted an outdoor ceremony as they are few and far between in the UK – probably due to the risks of our crazy weather. I guess thats where Cleatham shines best, offering the best of both worlds whatever the eventuality.
My personal favourite part of the day was an appearance from ‘Cat on Sax‘ at the end – although I knew that she would be playing due to the schedule, it still caught me completely off guard! I highly recommend her to anyone interested in a unique sound at their wedding, a Saxophonist is a great addition that will blow everyone away.
