Saturday 15 February 2014 - Offley Place

Joanne and Andrew

When I was booked to photograph Joanne and Andrew's wedding in February I wasn't expecting this sort of weather!

Offley Place in February

As their wedding was the day after Valentines they choose a deep pink colourscheme - complete with roses of course.

Making a big entrance at Offley isn't difficult but I never know whether younger members of the bridal party will get overwhelmed walking down the aisle. These two little flowergirls did their job perfectly!

The conservatory at Offley is always bright and airy - and the registrars are happy for photography throughout the ceremony. Cathy's Bloomers did a great job with the bay trees and wall mounted flower arrangement.

Ok, it still wasn't the warmest, but I only kept the guests outside for a couple of minutes. I have the fun job of climbing a fire escape to get this shot!

Apart from family formal photos there's always plenty of time for capturing guests just having a good time.

The team at Offley are super efficient and turn the conservatory around for the wedding breakfast in record time. This means I can make sure the bride and groom get to see it all set up, and on this occasion I used it as a backdrop for some photos.

The tables were set up with candle lanterns, which as it got dark looked lovely. Each table was named after a Cornish beach - all of which have special meaning to the couple.

Joanne and Andrew's cake was heart shaped and as confirmed by the groom "very tasty".
