Rachel & Rhys had a relaxed wedding at Hintlesham Golf Club near Ipswich, Suffolk. Their entire day had a cool, vintage, pretty feel about it and they wanted their wedding photography to match. I had the honour of being their wedding photographer in January this year – yes, guilty, I am super behind on blogging!
I met Rach, her mum and her bridesmaids at the Premier Inn near the waterfront in Ipswich where there was a lot going on – mum fixing flowers in the bathroom, make-up and hair galore and not to mention one fabulous bride. Both the bride and groom were fashionably late, but luckily there was still time for Rhys and his best men to grab a beer before the ceremony.
Boy was it a chilly day, even for January. Rachel, Rhys and their guests were all such troopers, standing in the icy outside for some family photos like the newlyweds wanted. Luckily there was a baby on hand to take everyones mind off of the weather when it sicked up all all over the bride. One of my favourite photos of the day is the hilarious look of shock on the bridal party faces just after it happened! Rachel was amazing though – someone had come prepared with tissues, she laughed it off and we got straight back on with the shots.
Hintlesham golf club is such a gorgeous venue. Very laid back, natural in style – amazing with The Newsons’ choice of greenery for their flowers and centrepieces. The staff were very friendly and helpful so from a work perspective, it was a joy. I left Rachel and Rhys after we’d been outdoors again for their couples portraits which were bloody marvellous. I loved spending time with these two, they’re so much fun. Here’s more of what their day looked like.. x
