Amy + Elliot / Elegant plum coloured winter wedding

11th April 2016

Amy and Elliot chose their wedding day to be the 19th December 2015! Amy is a teacher so they wanted their day to be during one of the school holidays, plus with their honeymoon destination as Sri Lanka, the timing worked out perfectly for them!
I arrived with Amy bright and early at Maxwells hairdressers in Biggleswade. The air was crisp but the weather stayed dry and mild considering how close it was to Christmas! I captured the bride and her maids getting ready in the salon before popping back to Amy’s parent’s house to capture some of her details. Amy had chosen a stunningly elegant A-line dress with beautiful beading to the waistline. She paired this with a winter white fur cape and a dusky purple bouquet to complete the look! I loved the fact that she had thistles in her bouquet to represent the scottish side of her family.
The ceremony took place at Cambridge registry office, which was small but perfectly formed. I love the fact that they had a little christmas tree in the corner to make it feel christmassy! The ceremony was really touching, Amy and her dad shed a tear on the walk down the aisle which set everyone else off too, including the groom!
Next stop was the John O’Gaunt Golf Club in Biggleswade for the reception. I stole the newlyweds off for a bit to capture some bride and groom portraits against the setting winter sun. I love the way that the photos came out with a warm and hazy backdrop. Just divine! I made sure we had the same beautiful backdrop for the bridesmaids and groomsmen photos too as these shots are also some of my favourites to take!
After the wedding breakfast, a local band called Karizma set up to play the couple’s first dance and a couple of party sets! But first Amy did a quick bouquet toss which always goes down well! Karizma learned Amy and Elliot’s first dance which I thought was amazing! They played their chosen song all acoustic and slowed down and it set the tone of the evening.
