I was quite surprised when bride to be Tiffany told me of the lakeside wedding at Sandhurst that she had planned. When I think of Sandhurst, I think of the military obviously but also of fancy grand buildings, which of course there were….what I didn’t expect was beautiful, natural landscape surrounding a huuuuuge lake!
On the morning of the wedding I drove to the bride and took my second photographer along to photograph the groom getting ready. The morning was so relaxed, with plenty of time to prepare and Tiffany couldn’t have looked any less military, especially once in her stunning timeless dress.
The couple were married in The Royal Memorial Chapel at Sandhurst(definitely a grand and beautiful building)and then we all headed down to the lake, to a gorgeously decorated marquee, hay bales and garden games. The sun shone for a few moments before torrential rain ensued….but that really didn’t matter because Tiffany and James had planned things so well. As well as garden games there were lots of games indoors too and lots of hot tea and coffee to warm everyone up. The marquee was decorated with flowers the bride herself had chosen from New Covent Garden Market, pine cones and moss with a lovely dusky pink and gold theme.
Despite the rain everyone seemed to be having the best time(as you’ll see from some of the photos), with so much to do! There were classic board games, quizzes, the most beautiful ‘selfie booth’ and a game called ‘Nails’, which I’d never heard of but definitely went down well!
After great food and speeches, plus some brave photos in the rain, the fun really got started on the dance floor. I think the day went amazingly and just goes to show, no matter what the weather, a wedding will always turn out be a wonderful day!
What the couple said:
These photos are incredible! Exactly what we wanted from the day. Thank you so much!!
In my head it was a disastrous day and everyone was bored, but looking back at the photos I can see everyone was really happy and enjoying themselves!
Thank you so much!
