Otterburn Castle weddings
back to business . here we find some bridesmaids – doing bridesmaid things in the morning.
One bride trying hard to be serious – having makeup applied . . .
Four bridesmaids and one helper – definitely not trying to be serious !
more from these girls later –
they were definitely one of the liveliest, happiest, most funloving groups of girls I’ve had the pleasure to meet at a wedding.
Rachel hits the top of the aisle – and fills with emotion.
Wedding things happening.
More wedding things happening.
Do you take . . . I do . . . etc.
Below . . . we have the return of the happy bouncy smiling bridesmaids that we’d encountered earlier.
one has a little bit of a bump . . . but that doesn’t stop her from joining in the fun.
I honestly did not have to do anything to get these pictures.
I put a lens on the camera. I pointed the camera at the girls.
once the camera was pointing in the right direction – things seemed to just happen !
Otterburn Castle has a marquee parked around the rear of the building – it’s quite large – and this is it.
(I am telling you this – just in case you thought that the marquee had been erected in the honeymoon suite or something).
speeches . . all going quite well . . . nobody is exactly dancing on the tables or dancing in the aisles . . .
Oh yes – I forgot to mention. I took some pictures of Rachel and Alexander.
just so that they’d have some nice pictures to remember the day.
Singers burst into song
cue : mayhem.
Spontaneous dancing – it looks organised – but it was spontaneous – honest –
the singer tried to organise the girls into a dance troupe – but I think that he was quite surprised when the girls just leaped into action.
And then this mad manic huge conga began . . .
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a crowd partying like this at a wedding before.
Let’s throw the bouquet . .
I can see THAT’S GONNA WORK . . !
Umm. I take another one of those pictures – just so they have a nice one to put on the wall . . .
And back inside – our sociable people are socialising,
and laughing – and dancing . . .
What a wonderful day.
Thank you Rachel and Alex – for allowing me to be a very tiny small part of it.
Yours is a wedding that I’ll remember for quite some time to come.
