Wedding pictures

Here are just a few - we are not on this picture as I was taking it! This was the bride (and groom) with some of her family - in relaxed mode when they thought no-one was watching:
Although it was a sunny day, there was a biting wind and for the most part, we had to be out of the sun to get the light right for the photographer. That is why the bride and bridesmaids are wearing pashmina's. The rest of us froze and had to keep nipping indoors when we could to thaw out!

The dogs came to have their pictures taken and were then taken away again (Little Miss M raring to go) as usual and no, they are not still on photo-shopped out leads, they were told to sit and stay and they did:
 
After the breakfast, we all relaxed, some went back to their rooms for a rest. DS and DDL stayed in their wedding outfits to greet the evening guests. DS, DB and the best man all stayed in their suits for the dancing, whereas the bride changed into a lovely evening dress. Unfortunately I didn't manage to grab a picture.

You'll have to excuse the next pictures, trying to take photographs in a darkened room with lots of quick moving people was hard work. The mid-evening excellent band was called Contraband, you can read about them here:
The band for the barn dance was called Rufus Return and were excellent - highly recommended. You can read more about them here:
Herewith the swirling masses:


Again we are not on any of them although I hope we will be on some of the official ones!

We drove home on the Sunday, through 5 hours of driving rain and high winds! We both slept like logs all the night and are at last, beginning to relax. This wonderful wedding has occupied our brains for 18 months or so and now it doesn't - what will we do with our time!

  5. Lovely photos. I love relaxed photographs taken at weddings, they seem to convey the joy of the day so much more.

    Gorgeous photo with the dogs, I think it's lovely that they were included in part of the day, they are part of the family after all.
