Lincolnshire Wedding Photographer - Charlotte House
Robyn and Richard’s Wedding at The Charlotte House, Lincoln.
I first met Robyn and Richard on their engagement session at Rufford Abbey, which if you haven’t seen it, you can find here.
We hit it off right there and then and stayed in contact all through the lead up to the wedding.
The Wedding Day.
Robyn was getting ready at Charlotte House with her bridesmaids, Mum and Dad. Robyn’s beautiful lace dress from Lusan Mandongus was just awesome. From here we travelled over to Glentworth Church where I met Richard. Richard was a picture of calm and didn’t really look nervous at all. I also met the vicar who was conducting the ceremony, who just so happened to be a very close family friend to Richard. This ceremony was personal to Robyn and Richard, everything the vicar said was to them, about them. After the service we headed back to the Charlotte House with a little stop off on the way for some “couple time” portraits. When we got back to Charlotte House the guests were greeted by tea, coffee and an assortment of homemade cakes. The evening was just full of amazing dancing from both Robyn and Richard, an their guests too.
Here’s what Robyn & Richard had to say about me:
“From the very start – that being the engagement shoot – Kev put us at ease and any worries or fears we had quickly disappeared. After a lunch and a glorious wander around a nearby park, where we chatted, laughed, and compared notes on our favourite bands, he provided us with a taster of what he could do in the form of some wonderful shots. Confidence firmly established, we bounded forth into the wedding day itself.
Kev appeared early, capturing some priceless memories of my wife getting ready with her excited family and bridesmaids, before zipping off to document my nerves as I shakily greeted the guests at the church. Despite my wobbliness, he managed to still get some shots that I really love. Not sure how, but he did it.
Throughout the service (amazing), the group photos (wonderfully speedy and not a jot of confusion or stress), and the evening celebrations (drunken dancing, mainly!), Kev integrated himself amongst our guests and disappeared into the crowds like some bearded ninja, laughing and dancing with everybody else. He wasn’t just our photographer, he was a guest – counted amongst our closest, nearest and dearest, and as much a part of our day as everybody else we shared it with. We feel like we have made a friend, indeed it feels like we have known him far longer than the few months we have been in contact, and ultimately paying him for the pleasure of his company, support, and resulting photos is more a pleasure than it is anything else.
Kev, I can’t thank you enough. Robyn and I will look back for years to come, with family and friends or just by ourselves, and think fondly of that day, our vows and dancing, the BBQ and the torrential evening rain, and the man with the cameras who caught those moments for us to keep.
If you have read this far and still unsure, just pick up the phone and have a chat with him – you wont regret it.”
