I was lucky enough to be involved in Lou & Pete’s wedding having been introduced to them by Lou’s sister Philly whose wedding I photographed last year. David & Philly got married last August. Lou, Pete & I met up for their engagement shoot in West Hampstead which I’m sure you’ll remember. If not, have a little look see because I really enjoyed the afternoon. Plus I loved hearing about how they came to be a couple!
Lou & Pete’s wedding lived up to everything they promised at their engagement shoot. It was both relaxed and fun. It was also beautifully decorated. Every element had been thought of. There were little fans at each seat (which came in rather handy on their scorching hot wedding day!), names written on each person’s wine glass, and a homemade flower swing with beautiful blooms hanging above the top table. Louise looked incredible in a dress named Daffodil (you’ll see why) and gorgeous Jimmy Choo wedges.
The church ceremony was held in the church they’ve both lived near since childhood. I just loved Lou’s face when she first strolled up the aisle and first saw Pete. Then it was over to Lou’s Dad’s golf club for their reception in a beautiful tipi by Papakata. I love that they went from church to tipi in a decorated golf buggy – aren’t personalised touches the best? Lou & Pete’s faces when they almost slipped off the back were priceless!
I loved the relaxed feel to the day as people played giant Jenga, boules and cricket on the golf course. Others strolled around enjoying the sunshine and playing with their kids. The relaxed feel continued into the evening as brilliant speeches were followed by dancing and more sitting out enjoying the evening.
Lou & Pete are enjoying an incredible honeymoon at the moment so hope you’re having an amazing time! If you are looking for a Cambridgeshire wedding photographer then get in touch. And if you’d like to see some more photos first then click here to see some more wedding photography.
