Yet another very belated blog post………
I met Cat and Chris at Sarah and Bob’s wedding at Holme Pierrepont in September 2009. Cat was one of Sarah’s Bridesmaid’s and Chris was Bob’s Best Man, although I don’t believe they were an ‘item’ back then so it was a nice moment to work out who they were and that they were together when we first met and started talking about wedding photography.
Cat got ready at her parents home before the short trip to their family church of St Andrew’s opposite the Nottingham Conference Centre. Chris, meanwhile, wanted to have a few photos with his Best Man, Bob (see earlier!) and his Ushers at their old haunt Rock City! Why not!
After a lovely service at St Andrew’s, the wedding party and guests drove up to Norwood Hall in Southwell for drinks, canapes and fun! Friends and family happily posed for a few photos outside on this cool May Saturday as did Cat and Chris before heading into the warmth for their wedding breakfast. Throughout the day there were lots of nods towards Chris’ love for and taste in music. The table plan was crafted from CD covers of his favourite albums. And the first dance was to Wind of Change by Scorpion – fantastic!
Bob’s Best Man speech was pretty memorable I have to say, quite near the knuckle but very, very funny! Unfortunately, I cannot repeat any of the stories that he recounted here!
We took along a photobooth for the evening reception and the guests had lots of fun trying on props, doing silly faces and poses! I did have to edit a few images out of the final selections thank to a couple of cheeky boys and some naughty words and drawings on my chalkboard! Very funny to review and edit I must say but not for general public consumption!
Cat & Chris, it was a real honour covering your wedding for you, a really lovely, fun and relaxed wedding! Congratulations (v. belated)!
