Towards the end of July I returned to Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire (I say returned, as I photographed Ali & Armons wedding there last year) to photograph Sarah and Chris' "Great Gatsby" themed wedding.
And what a day it was! Prestwold Hall was the perfect venue for the wedding that Sarah and Chris had planned. Whilst they didn't get the outdoor wedding ceremony that they were hoping for (a slight rain shower just before the time of the ceremony put paid to that) they were able to make use of the wonderful spaces within the venue, suiting the theme wonderfully.
Furthermore, whilst I had worked at Prestwold before, I did get to meet a number of new wedding suppliers that I must give a quick shout out to. Award winning Make Up Artist Rochelle O'Brien, the wonderful hairstyling talents of Mon-Amie as well as Jane from the Wedding Room .
Sarah and Chris were a dream to work for. I seem to say this every time I write a blog post but they are two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. Of course it didn't hurt that Chris follows the same football team as I do :-) Here are a few of their images...
