I have been looking forward to Samantha and Richard’s wedding for over a year now as it was a bit special for me personally. The last time I was at Rendcomb was 16 years ago when I attended Rendcomb College as a child, and it was lovely to be back.
But anyway, back to Samantha and Richard’s wedding day. Jonathan and I started at at 11am at Rendcomb College. Unfortunately it was raining cats and dogs for the first hour we were there. Good luck some say, so we were not too bothered. 12noon soon came around and with the midday arriving so too did Richard. It seemed to be his smiling demeanour made the sun come out. Jonathan (who was in charge of the photography for the day) and I were running about all over the place and getting those beautiful establish shots of the venue in the sunshine.
Richard, his ushers and best man greeted their guests and ushered them into position into the church.
Soon after everyone was in position, St Peters Church welcomed the arrival of Samantha and her bridesmaids (and Mum and Dad).
Richard was waiting at the top of the isle as Samantha walked down the isle with her bridesmaids and page boys.
After a poignant service with a couple of readings, Samantha and Richard were wed. They celebrated by walking out of the church with their guests lined up in a tunnel as a veil of confetti came down on the couple as they headed over to the College for their reception party with cocktails and a vintage theme.
After a few drinks and canapés the guests were asked outside for a few formal photos. Whilst Jonathan got some group shots we thought it a great time to get the aerial camera out and got some amazing shots of their guests and the surroundings.
After a while of more mingling, Samantha and Richard were introduced into their wedding breakfast. The caterers served up a wonderful three course meal which was lapped up by their guests and soon after we went into the speeches.
The father of the bride, Richard and his best man all said a few words of thanks, congratulations and embarrassment (for Richard anyway).
We then headed into the evening reception where Samantha and Richard danced their first dance together as a married couple and then were joined by their guests who really got the party started.
