I haven’t admitted this to anyone until now. When I first got the enquiry from Rhiannon & Danny about their West Retford Hotel wedding, I was conflicted. On the one hand I always love shooting weddings there. On the other hand their date was my birthday! However, when I met Rhiannon and Danny I got on really well with them and was very excited to be part of their day. So I was thrilled when they invited me to be their photographer.
It seemed like such a long time ago now that they booked me but their day eventually arrived and the weather was well….variable. We were all worried at first it would rain meaning that their plans for an outdoor wedding would be jeopardised. Lady luck smiled on us though and about half an hour before the ceremony was due to start, the sun came out in full force. It got hot very quickly!
Danny looked incredibly smart but it was Rhiannon who stole the show. She looked simply stunning as she gracefully walked down the aisle. The ceremony was full of laughs from the happy couple but I saw quite a few happy tears from their guests.
The entire day was very relaxed and the staff at West Retford were absolutely fantastic. Amy, the wedding coordinator worked incredibly hard to ensure everything ran to time and between us it went like clockwork. Beautiful photographs seemed to leap into my camera and before I knew it, the first dance was over and it was time for me to leave them to party the night away.
Lastly, I’d like to take a moment to say a special thank you to the happy couple for their very kind birthday present! I use it all the time. It’s perfect and lovely you remembered my birthday.
