Charlotte and Richard booked me a long time ago and it was a long time before I met either of them, in fact I didn't meet Richard until he was stood waiting at the alter! Wedding's aren't Richard's cup of tea, in fact he was so relaxed about the whole thing that he was quoted as saying a few nights before that he was "vaguely looking forward to it", which Charlotte saw as pushing the boat out a bit. It really was a hilarious on-running joke throughout the day, and luckily for him he seemed to get away with it!
Charlotte's attempt to get Richard on board was to incorporate her husband-to-be's love of trains into the decorations, with a brilliant table plan of platform names and postcards of classic engines. This worked surprisingly well with the gorgeous vintage floral displays and rustic setting of The Mill at Madeley Court. The little church at Charlotte's childhood home of Ditton Priors oozed with chocolate box charm, and although the weather was a little showery it really was a gorgeous day with some lovely locations, and of course a beautiful bride and groom who, despite being a little anxious, looked superb in front of the camera.
Yes the groom may have been a little less than enthusiastic about the wedding day itself, but these two were clearly overjoyed to be marrying one-another, which in the end is the most important thing of all. I loved hearing their stories during the speeches about their adventures over the past eight years, and their sense of humour and sweet friendship was a lovely thing to witness. Every wedding I shoot is totally different, and no couple the same. You certainly don't have to be shouting from the rooftops to be head over heels in love!
Let's have a look at this gorgeous 'choo-choo' wedding.
Thank you so much Mr and Mrs Blackburn for having me be the one to photograph your special day!
