It’s a fact, I LOVE WEDDINGS and none more so than the wedding we photographed yesterday for Nikki and Mike. You couldn’t find a more lovely couple and it was a pleasure being a part of their special day. Nikki and Mike were in the same class at school, but it wasn’t until 7 years ago that the romance blossomed that culminated in their wonderful winter wedding.
Nikki really did look amazing in a beautiful lace gown and lace bolero from 'Forget-Me-Not' designs on the Isle of Wight. It was the perfect dress for her and it was well worth all the trips to the island to get it made. On her wedding day, Nikki was accompanied by her two great friends, Jo and Becky and the cute little flower girl Ella.
Alan met up with the boys, Mike, his best man Nick, ushers Josh, Craig and Dan in the Goods Yard Pub in Broadstone before heading to St John the Baptist church. It was to be a special day for the church too as it was Rev Martin Frediksen’s last wedding before retiring after spending 18 years as vicar of the parish.
Soon it was time for Nikki to arrive on her proud father’s arm as she walked down to aisle to meet her soon to be husband. The ceremony was lovely and afterwards we headed into the church yard for photos before heading off to the reception. Nikki and Mike stopped off at Evening Hill enroute to The Harbour Heights Hotel to have some more photos taken whilst enjoying the wonderful winter sunshine.
Once at Harbour Heights, the sun continued to shine, bathing the Hytes Restaurants in lovely golden light, it looked stunning. The wedding breakfast was served and the speeches delivered. Alan and I hear a lot of speeches, but these ones were lovely, amusing yet sincere and totally appropriate for the occasion!!
Nikki and Mike are off to Paris for their honeymoon in the New Year. We would like to wish them a long and happy marriage and thank them once again for choosing us to photograph their big day. Below are a selection of some of our favourites from the day, we hope you like them!! Please feel free to leave a comment at the end of the post.
Much love, Donna and Alan XXXX
