Storybook album cover showing Sara & Dan as they cross the bridge onto the island for their wedding reception.
Sara & Dan chose to get married in the lovely chapel at the National Trust-owned Nostell Priory, the bride having got ready at her parent’s home nearby. The following pages tell the story of their wedding day, using just the photos they themselves chose, though with all the unused shots they could easily have created a second album, that showed more of the reportage-/documentary type images.
Goodnight kiss at night
The dawn of Sara's wedding day starts as expected, with hair an make-up - bridesmaids first ...
The bride does up her father's cuff-links, there's a last-minute spot of ironing , and its into the wedding dress and on with the veil.
Sara is all smiles as she waltzes round her family home garden in her wedding dress and floaty veil
Traditional bride in black and white with spot colour floats off the pages ...
The bride's parents and little bridesmaid.
bridesmaids in limo, the grandparents, pageboy and wedding car arriving
The bride's arrival almost looks like a moving video as your eye is drawn through the perspective of these images.
Framed by the arched doorway of the church, the bride then walks down the aisle with her father.

Beautiful colours and evening light on the island as the evening wedding reception draws to a close with a barbecue and strawberries.
The evening wedding guests linger outside by the lake as the light fades, reluctant to go inside.
The end of a lovely night...
