Helen and Daniel {wedding} at The Little Hermitage

It’s such a joy to photograph a wedding that is full of laughter. And that was definitely the case yesterday as Helen and Daniel celebrated their wedding at The Little Hermitage (www.little-hermitage.co.uk).

The preparation were in full swing when I arrived, with Jaymie and Samantha (the bridesmaids) getting their hair styled and dresses being unwrapped …

… with fabulous results!

Meanwhile downstairs, guests were arriving and I managed to snap Daniel and his brother (and best man), Adam …

And Joe and Luke …

And back with Helen … final preparations were done, champagne enjoyed …

… and on to the ceremony itself …

And a very moving reading from Daniel’s mum … where she nearly reduced the whole congregation to tears when she was presenting her reading … she said “he’s my little boy …”

After the ceremony, the guests and the new Mr and Mrs McKee made their way out into the glorious autumn sunshine for drinks and photos … but we had a few moments alone to take some pictures just of Helen and Daniel …

But too soon it was time to make our way back into The Little Hermitage for the meal and speeches …

And some great gifts from Daniel’s mum …

I had a wonderful day and am sure that Helen and Daniel’s great sense of humour and the laughter will have gone on for a long time into the night … one final picture of their beautiful venue …

I’ll be working hard processing Helen and Daniel’s pictures which should be on-line to view within the next two weeks. Enjoy your time off together and all best wishes for the future!
