Once more I was invited along by Az of Lemontree Photography to second shoot alongside him . . .

The rain tried it’s upmost to put a dampener no the day, but Sarah, James and their awesome friends and family weren’t having any of it. From the start the atmosphere was significatly warmer than the weather, with everyone enjoying themselves emensely . . .

As the year continued more and more great opportunities began to appear . . . The next that did was this wedding which I shot freelance for a local photographer, it was also my first opportunity to shoot at the rather grand but very local Elmers Court this meant it was my first chance to try out an “ECO” unique selling point I had been thinking of, to cycle to the wedding . . .

Fortunately the day was stunning, and even though the bag was extremely heavy (must consider strapping it to the bike next time) I managed to get the the venue without being knocked off by any one of Lymington’s many crazy drivers. Annie + John were both great, relaxed and chilled. Along with their children, making up most of the bridesmaids, bestman and usher they all had a great time taking advantage of the beautiful rolling grounds towards the Solent water front and even enjoying the playground . . .

I was invited along to this beautiful wedding by Az of Lemontree Photography, in line with the stunning vintage theme and decorations Az and I were asked if we would mind dressing in similar 1950’s dress, this we obviously jumped at the chance which turned out to both look awesome and be great fun . . .

The who day was in all honest a bit of a photographers dream, great opportunities at every turn, huge credit must be given to the lovely couple who both clearly put huge amounts of effort, time and their personalities in the day . . .

On the next stop in my photographic journey I was given another opportunity to work with Az of Lemontree Photography he had invited me along to second shoot for him at the wedding of Gwen + Matt at the beautiful Rhinefield House in the heart of the New Forest . . .

It was an incredible day with family and friends in the beautiful New Forest surroundings, all rounded off with the fantastic atmosphere of my first traditional Scottish Kaley which everyone got stuck into . . .

As the year went on more and more great opportunities came up . . . The next that did was this wedding which I shot freelance for a local photographer. It was for the lovely Linda & Tom, who I met a couple of days before their big day. The day came and the sun was out (one of those beautifully warm days in late May), the couple were both so relaxed and happy it made capturing their day such a pleasure. Everyone got stuck in with the photos, with the groomsmen joining to capture one of my favorite shots of this year so far . . .

After the drinks at the church we made a little stop on our way to the reception venue, a moment for Linda + Tom to have some time with each other and a chance to to capture some relaxed shots next to the beautiful Old Bridge across the Ifford River, before too long and having enjoyed the day immensely my time was at an end. My congratulations to a great couple and thanks for such a beautiful day . . .
