"Royal Wedding...What Royal Wedding?" These were the words uttered by many of the guests on Friday at the very special Wedding Day of Philippa & Chris.
The couple have been together for nearly 10 years and the date for there marriage was set as 29th April 2011 long before any royal announcements, so indeed it was THEIR special day.
I traveled down to Essex to capture Philippa & Chris's day for them as they had heard about me by recommendation. Im happy to travel out of the area and Im delighted that my reputation has reached so far away! I hope you enjoy a preview of just a small selection of the images that I captured of their lovely Wedding Day.
Philippa got ready at her parents home, in her childhood bedroom, accompanied by her bridesmaids (sister Julie and close friends Claire & Kirsteen).
Philippa has the most amazing big brown eyes and there was definitely an extra special sparkle in them on Friday :-)
The bridal bouquet and bridesmaids posies were a collection of gorgeous pastel roses in ivory, pink, peach and yellow.
It was such a delight to see how proud Philippa's father Andrew was as he caught sight of his daughter ready to be married....
Groom Chris was accompanied by his Best Man, his brother Stuart to Loughton Methodist Church for the ceremony.
The ceremony was truly lovely, engaging, thoughtful and funny- a real joy to be a part of.
Just a little bit of confetti....there's a newlywed couple in there somewhere!
On the journey to the reception venue we stopped to take advantage of capturing some images in this stunning field
Coltsfoot Retreat is a beautiful venue in Hertfordshire- I was so impressed with the surroundings and quality of service and experience at this wonderful location.
The couple and their guests enjoyed a Wedding Breakfast accompanied by the tinkling of the ivory keys by a really talented pianist
And then partied the night away to a live band...
Congratulations Philippa & Chris, thank you for choosing Sal Norris Photography to capture your day. Wishing you every happiness for a long and happy marriage
