We really can’t let go, even when its some of our best friends getting married and we are bridesmaids at their wedding! It’s what we love, and so couldn’t bear to watch any other wedding photographer do it, so we had to work it out. With the help of one of our best assistants we managed to have a good balance of taking photos, being in photos, and enjoying the party!
Here are some photos of us being on the other side of the camera for a change! It was brilliant doing up the dress, after watching so many other bridesmaids do it, and it was great getting our friends together for some fun group photos at Easthampstead Park.

We sometimes get worried brides who are getting ready at home and worry that their pictures are not going to look as nice as the brides who get ready in fancy hotel rooms – well this is to prove them wrong!
At our last wedding, Jo and her daughters (bride and bridesmaids) all got ready in a beautiful bedroom. The plain purple walls made great backdrops, and the mirror in the window gave me some really creative shots.
The light from the big window made all the girls look great, so our advice is always to keep the room uncluttered and have lots of natural light!
Yes, this joke was actually used by the father of the bride in the opening of his speech (I couldn’t work out whether to write tears or tiers to best effect!). Unfortunately, the joke didn’t go down exactly as he hoped which in itself had myself, the bride and I’m sure many others in stitches!
But it really was an emotional wedding and just to prove his point, here are some emotion filled photos from throughout the day. As well as tears, there was loads of laughter and the whole day, set at Frimley Hall, was definitely enjoyed by everyone.
