It has been a couple of years since I last worked with Katherine when she commissioned me to take some business branding images of her for her new website. I was therefore pleasantly surprised (and rather excited) when she got in touch to ask whether I had the availability to photograph her wedding which was due to take place in a matter of weeks.
Of course I jumped at the chance. It's always lovely to reconnect with former clients and be there to capture the next part of their story!
Their ceremony was to be very small, with just 4 guests, and I was happy to be able to provide them with some advice and guidance regarding what to expect having already photographed a post-lockdown wedding at the Chippenham Registry Office.
Being a garden designer, I expected nothing less than for Katherine to have a beautiful bouquet and it didn't disappoint! Chris's buttonhole was equally as lovely - all created by the talented Jill Jeffries!
Following their intimate ceremony, I accompanied them back to their house for a few portraits in the back garden where their two dogs excitedly got involved! Then there was just enough time left for me to capture the surprised looks on their faces as their son and daughter revealed they had secretly been gathering video messages from all of their loved ones who were unable to make the ceremony. Such a brilliant surprise!
Katherine and Chris very kindly left me the following testimonial once they had received all of their images:
Kate was our photographer for our tiny Covid-19 wedding in October. She and I had worked together before on some professional head shots so I knew she was really good. She was able to guide us through what would happen at the Registry office about photos and also operated our camera for us so we could record the ceremony for our families who couldn’t be there. Afterwards she joined us at home and her ability to be completely unobtrusive meant that she captured some wonderfully candid shots of the whole event.
We have already had hours of pleasure looking back at the pictures and remembering the day. She has helped us capture it really vividly and there are some completely wonderful shots I will treasure forever.
I would recommend Kate without hesitation.
Below are just a few of my favourite photos from the day. The full set of images can be found here (the password can be obtained from Katherine or Chris).
