Maria and Tom’s wedding at Ettington Park – 08.07.12
Best wishes to Maria and Tom who wed at Ettington Park in Warwickshire. I photographed Maria preparing for her big day with her three bridesmaids and family from Russia, upstairs at Ettington. The bridal party were in a playful mood doing some Russian dancing while preparing, allowing for some great shots before I headed downstairs, to meet Tom and guests arriving for the ceremony.
The happy couple took their vows in front of family and friends in a nice ceremony before heading outdoors for a Russian tradition of ‘biggest bite of the loaf of bread’. I photographed some great shots of Maria and Tom in the beautiful grounds of Ettington Park on what was a hot summers day with a short shower keeping everyone on their toes.
A nice wedding breakfast and mix of English and Russian speeches before the partying began. Some partying it was! I covered the first dance with some twilight shots to finish a great day.
