Sandra & David

Last Saturday, Sandra & David got married at Rushall Parish church followed by their reception at Arbor Lights in Walsall (via the Walsall Arboretum for some gorgeous photos first).  This was a very special wedding for me, as Sandra is a very good friend.  I was honoured when she asked me to photograph their wedding 🙂


We were so lucky with the weather as it had been raining all week, however it stayed clear and the sun even came out later in the afternoon.   Perfect!

Both Sandra and David were getting ready on the same road: Sandra at her mother’s house and David at their house.  As they were so close, it made it easy for us to capture both David and Sandra’s pre wedding preparations.  David was getting ready with his best man and son Miles.  It was so calm in the house, everything was set out ready.  Miles, although very excited about his parents’ wedding, helped David put his personalised cufflinks on his shirt.

About 20 houses down the road, Sandra and her bridesmaid (and sister-in-law) Jolene were having the finishing touches to their hair and make up.  The four children were being entertained by Sandra’s mother, father and brother.  Such a busy house, but Sandra was very calm.

The beautiful cars arrived and took the bridesmaids and flower girls to the church, then came back for Sandra and her father.

At the church, David was looking a little nervous as he greeted his friends and family.  Sandra arrived and was full of smiles.  The service was lovely.  When we exited the church, the sun was shining.  After the photographs the guests made their way to the reception at Arbor Lights.  We went with Sandra and David to the Walsall Arboretum for some couples shots.  The cars looked stunning in the park setting.  Although the ground was a little wet in places, Sandra wasn’t bothered and was up for anything – my kind of gal 🙂 !
