This is one of the weddings I have been due to catch up on from the year gone by that’s taken no coffee or other short lived resolution to sit down and type up. In part, it’s because much can be said by just how warm and friendly wedding families and friends can be at the end of a day taking photographs. The families and friends of these two were just, well, great. I’m sure it’s something we don’t always realize when surrounded by nice people, but it sure does pin it down as enjoyable for us.
I met the lovely Issie (Lauren to some) a few months prior to her and Jonathans wedding in a little coffee shop in Godalming. Skip a few of the in-between months and the excitement starts to get real when you need a security pass to get past the gates. Pretty cool when your venue includes armed security.
Sandhurst Royal Military Academy is a collection of quite amazing architecture, but it’s the combination of history, the amazement of the day and the hope and the dreams we hold for the future that for me draws a small pause in-between taking pictures here. From the Royal Memorial Chapel that describes its being as an ‘oasis of calm for those who serve busy lives’ to The Grand Entrance framed by statues of the gods Mars and Minerva. Each step and every corridor brings a little something, breathes a little something into the future of two people joining together, laughing together and dancing together.
So we loved being the wedding photographers at Sandhurst Royal Military Academy. We really hope you enjoy the following selection of wedding photographs as much as enjoyed the little pauses in-between thinking of the history, the dreams and all the bits in between. 🙂
