Rachel and Jamie had a Matfen Hall wedding
with a film theme.
Films and the stage are important in their lives
(for lots of reasons !)
It’s a wonderful life . . .
you will spot the film references as you peek at their lovely pictures.
Below, you will see the fellers getting ready
then generally fooling about before the wedding.
As one does . . .
Then we take a peek into the bridal suite,
where a little girl is found.
Her smiles and laughter add to the atmosphere !
Some black and white pictures
you’ll find that some photographers will specialise in black and white.
I don’t. I simply make black and white pictures where I think that they work best,
and where colour works better . . . I use colour. simple 🙂
A string quartet fires up
one bride is launched down the staircase with her father
and everyone turns to watch her arrival.
here goes : it’s a . . .
Matfen Hall wedding
The pictures below, show general wedding stuff happening in the Great Hall.
You’ll probably notice some white bits on the carpet . . .
They’re artfully strewn rose petals.
More stuff happens. more pictures are produced,
I swing from the chandelier to get an aerial shot.
I have absolutely no idea what was happening on the series of black and white pictures below,
but it’s fair to assume that the man on the left is as mad as a box of frogs,
or perhaps as crazy as a wombat on amphetamines.
And whilst I’m on the subject of not knowing what the heck was going on,
more confusing things are photographed below.
(one thing is absolutely definite here . . . these people are happy,
and it was an absolute pleasure for me to take these pictures !)
Heading back to Matfen Hall.
the picture below needs a caption . . .
any ideas ??
We nab a couple of pictures of Rachel and Jamie before their wedding breakfast.
Meanwhile, wedding guests enjoy the bar !
The little feller below might be just a tiny bit too young to get plastered,
I think he’s on some kind of rocket powered fruit juice.
Ah. You would like to see the room . . .
so would Rachel and Jamie 🙂
A gazillion pictures are taken at this point by yours truly.
( a gazillion is another word for a lot).
Then . . more stuff happens. (more stuff tends to happen a lot at the weddings I go to).
a man strums a guitar in the great hall
Rachel and Jamie trip the light fantastic . . .
a band strikes up in the vaults
a bunch of girls tear up the tarmac on the dance floor
(should that be tear up the floor ?
where the hell did tarmac come from ?
there wasn’t any tarmac in sight.
oh well. they were dancing downstairs.
that sounds better, doesn’t it.
(but tearing up the tarmac sounds a lot more interesting).
All that remains is for me to thank the lovely Rachel and Jamie
for allowing me to photograph their wedding celebrations !
Thank you !
if you think you’ve seen Rachel before . . .
it’s quite possible that you’ve seen her when you’ve been watching the TV or a film or something . . .
she’s Kara in Wolfblood.
and she is Anne Bronte in the BBC production of The Brontes (set for release in 2016)
