Today me and David are at the Holiday Inn at Gosforth Park for Sarah & Matt’s big day. While David heads up to one of the rooms to grab some footage of Matt and the lads, I head off to Sarah’s parents house for the girl’s preparations. At the house are Sarah, her two bridesmaids, her Mam and Dad, and LeopardPrints Photography, it’s great to be working with Laura and Nick again.
As I arrive Sarah is just getting the finishing touches done on her make-up before the hairdresser takes over, the bubbley is popped and everyone is in great spirits for the day ahead. Sarah is given a gift from Matt with a card reading “To my wife to be Sarah I love you, that is all I will write because it is that simple, I love you more than anything and want my life with you. Love always Matt” Which may be one of the sweetest messages I’ve heard, no frills – pure love, well done Matt!
As the girls help Sarah into her dress, Dad waits downstairs for the big reveal, and it certainly was an emotional one. He kept his eyes closed as Sarah came into the living room meaning he could take it all in once he opened them, no doubt you’ll see his full reaction in the teaser – utterly perfect.
Then it was back to the Holiday Inn for the ceremony and reception. The heat is climbing and by the time we head off the Northumberlandia with the happy newly married couple it has reacted 27 degrees, so the breeze at the land sculpture is a welcome addition (if a bit troublesome for Sarah’s veil). Laura & Nick set up some great shots both in the woodland and on the sculpture itself and I am able to catch some great moments before we head back to the Holiday Inn for the speeches and the party.
