Kings Head Wedding Photography
If anyone tells you wild stories about guys who work in the Navy….well, they’re probably all true! Yes, this is a tale about a Bride who was getting married to a Navy boy. I was warned when I first met Lucy and Adam that most of the guests at the Wedding would be his Navy brethren.
Of course, first of all, I was heading over to see Lucy and the gang getting ready. Tucked away in the countryside, in a rather lovely Georgian manor, was Lucy and the crew. Frantically getting ready for the day ahead, flower deliveries, make-up marathons and constantly quaffing Champagne….of course, darling! Along with the giggles and champagne there was shots to do. An amazing wedding dress and a fantastic setting, I had to do it justice. Once the details were shot I nipped in to see Lucy getting the final touches to her make-up as well as grabbing a few shots of the girls checking out the flowers…..followed by more champagne. But the time came when I had to go over and see Adam and his best man at The Kings Head, after a quick game of musical car parking spaces I was off. When I caught up with Adam he was in the bar area with his entourage, yep, the Navy guys. I had been warned! Such a great bunch of lads and, along with Adam’s dad, made for some good laughs and photos.
The guests were arriving in their droves, just ahead of Lucy, so we all took our positions in the ceremony room. When Lucy arrived in the room she looked amazing, her dad by her side was so proud. So many giggles during the ceremony, it was great to see everyone really at ease at what is usually such an emotional event. Drinks and canapés followed and then I kidnapped Lucy & Adam for a quick photo session at the nearby Great Bircham Windmill. The owners had kindly given us permission to use it for a few shots. Once Lucy had bravely climbed the ladders we had around 10 mins aloft the windmill before we had to head back to the hotel for the reception and family photos. Just before we hopped in the car to head back I managed to steal a few photos of Lucy having a laugh and cuddle with her dad, who she clearly adored.
Once everyone had sat for the meal the speeches started. Emotional? Of course! And it’s always great to hear stories of how couples meet and this was no exception, learning of Adam and his Navy history and how they came to meet. Adam’s dad was a great story teller and has a great relationship with his son. Well, after coffees were served you can guess what happened with a whole bunch of Navy guys at the reception. Yes, a raucous time of the dance floor as you’ll see in the photos was had by all. Great times!
