With Christmas on the horizon, it was time for my final wedding of 2018 and this one was going to be special. Over the past few years there have been many special people in my life that have supported me through thick, thin, good times and bad. It was an absolute honour to be photographing two of those very people. Andrew & Dana are two of my closest friends and it was time for them to tie the knot before the arrival of their little baby who is due early 2019. They had chosen to hold their special day in Windsor, where Andrew had grown up in his childhood. It was only going to be a small wedding for their close family with Dana’s family making the long journey from Latvia. The attention to detail on the day was incredible with Andrew seakng pure perfection for his beautiful bride and it was a early start for us all with Hair & Make Up starting at 6am
We started the day at The Castle Hotel in Windsor with Dana and her sister in law Anastasija. Hair & make up was being done by Tamara Tott and I think you’ll agree, Dana looked absolutely stunning. With a early ceremony booked for 11am, there was a lot to get done. Here are some images I captured of Dana as she prepared to become the new Mrs Scott and also a quick shot of Andrew as he arrived at the ceremony venue…
With the ceremony being held at The Windsor Guildhall , it was just a short trip across the road for Dana to walk her final steps as a fiancé. The ceremony was just lovely to witness as it was perfectly intimate, full of smiles and there was so much love in the air with two families from two very different countries coming together to celebrate such a beautiful occasion. I never forget the smiles on the grooms face as he turns to see his bride for the first time and this special day was no different.
After the ceremony we headed off for a little portrait shoot with our newly weds and what better backdrop than the picturesque town of Windsor. We had already done a little trip earlier in the month to check out some possible spots to shoot in and here are some images we captured…
After our portrait shoot around Windsor, we headed off to Coworth Park where Andrew & Dana had planned to hold their wedding reception. This is a beautiful venue set in the heart of Ascot with breathtaking surroundings, I’d highly recommend if you are looking for the 5* star experience and a relaxed weekend away. At the venue, Andrew & Dana had chosen to have a family meal within The Tower House which was just the perfect setting for such an intimate wedding. With a large oval table, log fire, special wasabi vodka brought from abroad and multilingual speeches, the love in the air was just infectious.
This is the time in my blog when I would just like to say a huge thank you to both Andrew & Dana for letting me be such a huge part of their special day. I really do feel honoured to have such great friends like yourself and to be a part of your journey together. Here’s to many years of happiness together and to 2019 and all it holds for you and your growing family.
I would also like to say a huge thank you to all of your friends and family who really made me feel welcome. It was lovely to see two countries coming together to celebrate in such an intimate and beautiful setting. I think you would agree, the lovely couple just look amazing together. Here are a few more images for your viewing pleasure and please feel free to leave a little comment below.
Lots of love
