wedding photography at Great Fosters

As a Surrey wedding photographer I’ve shot some glamorous girls in my time, but I don’t think anyone quite rivals the super-glam stylishness of Laura and her bridesmaids, who in choosing those sexy nude numbers for her besties socked it to any bride who worries about being upstaged by her bridesmaids.

Laura is a whole lot of fun, thankfully her husband Michael is too. So a good match there then. From the pre-wedding shoot, when I could barely hold the camera for laughing, I knew this was going to be an epic day. And it certainly was.

So Laura, the gal in the white dress, a blonde bombshell channeling a little bit of princess in that exquisitely embroidered lace bodice and full skirt (a la Maggie Sottero) with screen siren hair and make-up to match. A knock-out bride with incredible attention to detail. Would-be brides take note: stationery and signs from Beyond Vintage, meringue favours from The Meringue Girl, flowers (those beautiful blousy rose bouquets and striking table centre pieces all in soft hues) from The Fine Flower Company and chairs (yes, chairs because it’s the little details that count) from Host With Style Chairs to name just a few. Basically, she chose well.

Laura and Michael have two wonderful children, handsome Alfie (12) and Frankie (2) and I defy anyone to have a dry eye when they see the photo of Frankie and her Aunty Nikki walking down the isle hand in hand, Frankie carrying a little sign that says, ‘Daddy here comes Mummy’. Beyond cute.

From a photographic point of view this wedding really stood out for me. The smiley happy people, the awesome July sunset which produces a stunning summer glow for the photos and the incredible setting of Great Fosters – beautifully architectural, fantastic gardens with amazing staff, and quite possibly the best bouquet-catching photo I’ve shot yet !
