With flash floods from the remnants of Hurricane Bertha 20 miles away the day before, I was fearing for Amy and Dan's outdoor teepee wedding reception.
Luckily King's Lynn avoided most of the wind and rain and all was fine. As I started bridal prep a tad relieved, it was a hive of activity with three generations getting ready. In fact the sun shone all day and the garden seemed the fitting place to photograph the dress, shoes and details. This was an outdoors kinda day after all.
Amy had chosen a flowing Hearts Brides strapless gown and styled her bridesmaids in a teal 50s style with black petticoats. Her mum opted for a peacock teal and purple theme with feathers in her hair - I loved it! Everything was brought together with the flowers with pretty ivory and lavender, a very vintage combination.
Over at the church in Wiggenhall St Mary, Dan was waiting in full military uniform. Amy and the bridal party arrived in a vintage VW Camper and was given away by her brother. Her dad was inside keeping everyone entertained with some fantastic organ music, it must have been so wonderful to have him so close at the altar. After the ceremony we enjoyed the sunshine and as no confetti was allowed, bubble guns were used to great effect by the younger guests.
A short drive took us to Leziate and the fabulous teepee. Amy and family had spent a fair few hours making origami roses from sheet music (Dan added a crane) and they were fantastic decorations along the long tables. An afternoon tea picnic style meal had always been planned and luckily it was so warm that everyone took their blankets and sat outside. Later on the VW Camper returned and setup as a fun photo booth. I whisked Amy and Dan down to the lake for some romantic moments and back up to to the teepee for their cake cuttings and first dance to the Ramones. Under Covered entertained with some loud live music, beginning their set with The Killers and Pulp. It was one of those magical weddings and I feel very blessed to have captured this for Amy and Dan, congratulations.
