We’ve been looking forward to this most awesome wedding for some time prior to our little backpacking trip round the world. It’s with slightly hazy memories that we first met the completely down to earth lovely Sara & Greg whilst being the wedding photographer at their friends; Tilly & Ali’s wedding. Nice people tend to attract other nice people both in friendship and marriage. I guess it’s the way these things work; the plus point for us as wedding photographers is that the best of clients come to us from the best of weddings. We snapped their picture at our Mighty Photo Booth and the rest had to wait for the following year..
Fast-forward a year and a bit later; Sara & Greg chose to tie the knot at the 17th Century Edes House in Chichester but not before we took some bridal prep’ shot’s at Vicars Hall, which in turn was to be a top place for the evening celebrations. A tri-venue/multiple location wedding is something and somewhere you really don’t want to get lost in, as a missing photographer tends to get noticed at weddings. Fortunately Greg, and I imagine for all that know him, is quite literally one of the world’s best organizers. I still have the detailed route map which I turn to in times of quiet inwards despair when pre-thinking our plans for other weddings.
Anyway; one part I was completely in geek mode and looking forward to was the pictures in-between the different locations Greg & Sara would be using. A hand-in-hand moment traveling through life, as Sara & Greg inevitably will do (as they’re ace and go to Oman for a honeymoon) is something I’m usually on the look out for. It’s a part of togetherness we don’t usually notice, something entirely delicate but something indestructibly strong..
This is the part of the blog where I would give a running commentary on all the venues, however there would be little room for actual wedding pictures. But, it would be fair to say that between the wedding locations of Edes House, Vicar’s Hall, Chichester Cathedral and George Bell House; Chichester was pretty much and ultimately covered by the beautiful couple and their really friendly guests (nice people attract nice friends).
We hope we pretty much managed to cover the whole story for Greg and Sara’s wedding day (I’ve included way too many here for my server to be thankful for). I know that this ultimately will be one page in the whole book; but we really enjoyed their day as their wedding photographers in Chichester. We sincerely hope you enjoy the following pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them! I also got to loosen my tie for some evening action shot’s; a part of wedding photography I tend to miss.
On an ending note. It would be rude of me not to pay mention to the fact that Barack and Michelle Obama actually wrote a congratulatory letter to the most important couple in person and such links may (I doubt) do wonders for a search term in Google land and some kind of presidential photo-shoot (I can only hope!).
