Elaine and Roger {married} at St Martin’s Acrise and The Pines Calyx … sneak peek

Congratulations to Elaine and Roger who celebrated their wedding on Saturday at St Martin’s and then their reception at The Pines Calyx (www.pinescalyx.co.uk). The weather was gorgeous and the rain only arrived as I was making my way home. Flowers and hairbands were made by Elaine herself (how did she find the time!) and Elaine and her bridesmaids had the makeup talents of the ever fabulous Emily www.emilyrosemakeupartist.co.uk. Magical entertainment was by Phil from www.magicbeyondbelief.co.uk and Elaine and Roger ensured that their guests were laughing from start to finish.

Here’s their sneak peek … I’ve never had such an unruly mob of bridesmaids and ushers giving instructions to the happy couple … I nearly fell of the table with laughter!

I am sure that you are both going to have the most enjoyable time on your honeymoon and thank you both again for including me in your day. The full story of your day will follow soon … Hugs xx

Hadlow Manor {wedding fair}

What an amazing day! So many happy and excited brides-to-be and their fiances and/or friends! The sun shone on Hadlow Manor and in excess of 100 brides came through the door.

If you are one of the brides who picked up my card or stopped by for a chat, do please get in touch so that we can discuss your plans further. As an additional incentive, I will be offering 10% off all packages to brides who book me as a result of the wedding fair. Just tell me the colour of my promotional giveaway pens to secure the booking.

There are certain dates in the wedding year which are very popular with couples, especially those during half term and school holidays and the peak summer months. If you are planning a summer wedding in 2012, please don’t delay in finding your key suppliers otherwise you could be disappointed to find that they are already booked.

Do drop me an email sam@samanthajonesphotography.co.uk, give me a call 07786 314973 and check out my website www.samanthajonesphotography.co.uk.

If you missed the chance to meet me in person at Hadlow Manor, don’t forget that I will be exhibiting at the Pines Calyx this coming Sunday, 27 March, more details in my post here: Pines Calyx wedding fair.

{Engagement} shoot at Pines Calyx wedding venue

Elaine and Roger had booked me as their wedding photographer sight unseen after I was recommended to them by Lisa, the wedding co-ordinator at Pines Calyx (www.pinescalyx.co.uk). We put a date in the diary to meet up at their venue where they will be celebrating their wedding next autumn. Despite the very windy weather, we managed to get some fab shots and strolled around the beautiful grounds discussing ideas for their wedding day. I love shooting engagement sessions as I find out more about my couple’s plans. Check out the montages below!

I really enjoyed meeting up with Elaine and Roger and hearing about their plans. The shoot was full of laughter and stories and I think the two images below sum that up …

I have a feeling that their wedding is going to be fun … see you next September!
