Wedding photography in Lichfield
The weekends wedding ticked a few "first time" boxes for me. The first time I've travelled and stayed overnight in the UK for a wedding, my first civil ceremony wedding, and the first time I've photographed a wedding for a friend.
I've become friends with people I've done weddings for, but shooting a wedding for one of my oldest friends was a first. I've known Tina since college, which is a tad over 20 years ago. We lost contact for much of that time before finding each other a year or so ago thanks to the power of Facebook.
When I found out that Sam & Tina were getting hitched, I volunteered my services. They accepted, and the rest is history.
The drive up from Southampton, via a fitness photoshoot on route in Windsor, was awful. The M40 in the pouring rain, filled with numpties all driving too close and braking every few seconds is not a fun place.
With the weather the evening before being so bad, I can't have been the only one worried what it would be like on the big day. It turned out to be a perfect Novembers day, a tad chilly maybe, but the sun shone from sunrise to sunset.
The venue was Packington Moor Farm, just a few minutes outside of Lichfield in Staffordshire.
I'll let my pictures do the talking for the rest of the day...
Huge congratulations to Sam & Tina! Enjoy your honeymoon in the sunshine girls!
Update: Apparently the funky green shoes are from Iron Fist - I've been told by someone that they're "the best wedding shoe choice ever!"
