The Crab and Lobster and Crab Manor is one of my favourite intimate wedding venues in Yorkshire.
Andrea was the FIFTH professional photographer's wedding in the last couple of years I have photographed - so no pressure then!
She asked me to photograph her wedding as I normally do, blending in, having fun with her friends and relatives and capturing natural spontaneous images that would capture the ambiance and fun of her wedding to Peter, the true love of her life!
The weather, it has to be said, was pretty poor with heavy clouds and torrential downpours - not the greatest weather any bride would wish for, but it was still a great day of celebration with her closest friends and relatives who shared a lovely touching ceremony.
Before the wedding I was part of the build up as usual with the champagne flowing and make-up, nails and hair underway and soon enough lots of children filling the Bora Bora lodge at the Crab and Lobster as Andrea and her friends got ready for the day.
Andrea had flown to Hollywood near Christmas time to collect her La Soie Bridal wedding gown that she had fallen in love with .. and WOW, what a wedding dress!
It took longer than expected for Andrea and the girls to get all the children ready in their beautiful outfits, so we were 15 minutes late before we met with the registrars, but this was a midweek wedding, everyone was chilled and Damien, the wedding co-ordinator was holding umbrellas as the heavens opened again!
One minute before Andrea walked down the aisle .. the rain stopped and the sunshine came out for about 3 minutes before it retreated again as she met Peter at the front of the conservatory to take their vows.
Tears flowed and even outside as we assembled for a few quick family photographs, there were still a tear or two from Andrea as she clung onto her new husband - she was soooo happy! She was desperate to throw her bouquet, even though it was raining - and her Mum caught it!
Inside, the Crab and Lobster was beautifully decorated with spectacular multi-coloured pom-poms with a large table filled with sweets, candies and other scumptious goodies for both the children and the adults!
A fantastic wedding breakfast and entertaining speeches later, and evening guests were already arriving.
Guess what? Yes, it was raining, but after the happy couple cut the lovely cake (see photographs above) we moved into the band playing .. then Peter's father serenading the happy couple of the dance floor before I offered my thanks for their hospitality and friendship during their day - and then they were off to Paris!
I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of their 400+ final edited wedding images.....
