After the meal and some outdoor bride and groom photographs in the amazing gardens at Greenwoods, Suzy and Jon settled down for the speeches, which were amazing – funny, very emotional and some great use of props by the best men!
After a quick cake cutting, it was time for the amazing dance floor to be revealed to the guests (it had been hidden all day), and the first dance to begin! Suzanne had arranged for confetti cannons to be fired off as a surprise for Jon so there were some great surprise reactions to photograph.
After the first dance, Suzanne and Jon left the dancefloor to chat to their evening guests. I pitched an idea to Suzanne about a quick portrait session back in the hotel, using Greenwoods funky staircase that leads down to the health Spa. The images were lit by video light and the spotlights in the stairwell and I’m sure you’ll agree are stunning. Suzanne had done some modelling in the past, so was happy to really go for it!
I then made my way back to cpature a bit more dancing, finished off with a quick venue shot of Greenwoods marquee, and that was me done for the day!
Congratulations once again to Suzanne and Jon – your wedding day was a joy to shoot (even with the rain!!)
