Groomsmen photo in the Lounge at Down Hall Hotel and Spa

What a smashing wedding at Down Hall Spa and Hotel with Jess and Stewart, right from the start it was set to be cracking day, a great couple, great venue, family and friends coming together to celebrate their wedding day.

Each and every part of it was relaxed and fun (OK maybe Stewart felt some nerves before hand?!), Jess and the girls enjoyed bridal prep with some prosecco on the go whilst Stu and guys experimented with different ways of keeping cool whilst getting ready in the west wing!! As always during this part of the day I keep in the background and capture whats going on with minimal, if any interference.

The ceremony was in The Prior room and was dressed beautifully, really looked the part! And I have to say as did Stewart and Charlie!!! They had amazing tailor made suits by Cad and The Dandy which really were special!

After their ceremony there was reception drinks and photos before sitting down for there wedding breakfast with Steve Dean performing magic keeping everyone entertained! Carrying on a bit of a ‘Goodfellas’ thing thing Stu and the guys, we had a shot planned in the lounge for later in the day, so whilst people were enjoying their food I set about putting the shot together and setting the light up, the shot only took 2 or 3 minutes to execute but we were really pleased with the result! We did some evening shots outside too with Jess and Stewart before heading in to the Bridgeman suite for the party, provided no other than Lovelight of course! And what better way to finish than with fireworks too! A great day and certainly one I would do all over again! Thanks for having me guys and look forward to completing your album!
