What a wonderful day we had photographing the wedding of Laura and Rob on 29th June 2013

I asked my friend and fellow photographer Paul Keppel to give me a hand for the day.  He kindly drove all the way from Falmouth to help me out, thanks Paul.

I met Laura at her parent’s house just before noon.  She was in the process of getting her makeup done and then on to her hair.  I took photos of the preparation and she looked fabulous.  She was accompanied by three bridesmaids, Amy, Emily and Kerri as well as two page boys, Oscar and Joseph.  We had some fun photographing the page boys in the garden as well as some images of the bridesmaids getting their hair and makeup done. Laura's Dad, Steve also kept me fed and watered with some cheese sandwiches and nibbles, cheers Mr Sample ;)

While this was going on, Paul met up with the lads at Rob's parents house. Judging by the photos, they had lots of laughs and the odd beer, not Paul though, very professional as he is.  Rob had two best men, his brother Mark and best mate Darren, as well as three ushers, Sean, Aaron and James.  After the boys got ready and had the odd picture taken, they left for the church.

The ceremony was at 2:30pm at St Mary's Church in Plympton, Plymouth.  This is one the oldest churches in the area, the present building has been standing for over 700 years.  It is a magnificent church and is a great venue for any wedding.  The service lastest about 45 minutes and then the couple signed the register in the vestry, towards the back of the church. 

When the ceremony had finished we had the opportunity of photographing some of the smaller family group shots in and around the church grounds.  the light was wonderful with just a little cloud cover to break up the afternoon sun - perfect.

The bride and groom left the church in a silver Mercedes and travelled to the reception venue at Boringdon Park . This is a fantastic place to have the reception, with numerous locations for photography with stunning backdrops overlooking Plymouth and out towards the sea.  They also have a historic brick Triumphal Arch, which we just had to photograph Laura and Rob under.  It was great fun especially as we had to get there by golf buggy!!! We just got back in time for wedding breakfast.

After the sit down meal, there were the speeches.  Steve was first to go and you can see from the photos he was pleased to finish his.  Then it was Rob's turn.  Finally it was the double act of Mark and Darren.  Their speech was one of the funniest and if not the bluest best men speeches I have ever had the pleasure to hear, both Paul and myself could not stop laughing, which makes taking photos a little difficult.  They finished off with a powerpoint slide show for the lovely couple with the obligatory baby photos for all to see.  Great speech guys.

While the venue was setting up for the evening disco, the sun was beginning to set.  This gave me a great opportunity to take some more photos out on the golf course.  You could see all the way across Plymouth and out to sea, fantastic in the twilight. Then back inside for the cake cutting and first dance.

This was a fabulous wedding and a fabulous couple, thank you Mr and Mrs Tunley for allowing me to capture your day.
