I first met todays lovely couple through a mutual friend, who had recommended me to the guys as they were originally not having a professional photographer for their special day, but it was something they were considering. Let me introduce the gorgeous Mr & Mrs Grayland-Leech, Josie & Matt. The guys had planned for their special day to be held in their home town of Winchester and near to the original spot where Matt first dropped to his knee to propose to his soon to be bride at Winchester Cathedral.
We started the day with Josie and her fabulous bridesmaids at the Grayland-Leech family home which was only a short distance from the Winchester Registry Office where the ceremony was to be held. The morning was a very calm affair and everyone was chilled but it wasn’t long before the so called storm arrived, after the calmness. Here are a few images I captured of Josie’s preparation in the morning…
I just wanted to quickly break away from the girls and show you some images I captured of Matt when he arrived at the registry office, looking very dapper and very sharp. Its one of my favourite parts of the day as I get to witness all the nerves starting to appear, but in Matt’s case he was keeping things very chilled. Check out these…
So now its time to unveil the images I captured in the final stages of Josie’s preparation. As friends and family started to arrive to give their well wishes, the nerves were in full swing and to put it in the nicest way possible…. All hell started to break loose as time started to catch up on us. Here are some absolutely stunning images I captured before Josie took her final steps towards becoming the new Mrs Grayland-Leech…
This is the point in their blog where I would just like to say a huge thank you to both Josie & Matt for letting me be such a huge part of their special day. It really was a stunning day and so much fun, you guys are a great laugh. Also a big thank you to Kate for introducing me to the lovely couple as without people like you my business wouldn't thrive as it does.
Before you all go thou, there’s load of images below for your viewing pleasure. After the ceremony we headed down to the Cathedral, which makes the perfect backdrop for our little portrait shoot as I’m sure you’ll agree.
Guys, you are amazing and I really had a great time photographing you both and of course your wonderful friends and family. You have created the most amazing little family and here’s to many years of happiness and I wish you all the best for the future and all it holds as the new Mr & Mrs Grayland-Leech.
Lots of love
"Together, Forever, Believe & Achieve"
