Trevor Godfree - Wedding Photography for Sarah & Barry's Wedding

Trevor kindly allowed us to use images from Sarah & Barry's wedding for their blog entry and I asked Trevor about himself and his wedding photography style.

'I specialise in shooting natural, vibrant, unrehearsed photographs, to capture the emotion, colour, texture as well as those unexpected magical moments.

The most important thing for me is that couples are able to relax and enjoy their day without having to worry about the photography.

I pride myself on a calmness which tends to radiate out to those who are perhaps not so calm on the day.

Over the past 25 years I have covered nearly 2000 couples weddings (I am getting the hang of it now! ) and many have stayed in touch over the years and have brought their families to the studio for portraits. It is a privilege and great fun to the job that I do, and wouldn't ever want to change it.'

Sarah & Barry

When Sarah & Barry asked us to look after their wedding day for them we knew it was going to be good fun!

Getting married on the 4th July was just the start.

The couple got married at the beautiful St Peter's Church Boughton Monchelsea which over looked the deer park and the famous Weald of Kent.

The boys finally all ready and off to a Red Ferrari and a Black Bugatti

After some last minute preparations The bride was ready and off to the Church in a beautiful Vintage car that her father had spent the previous year lovingly restoring for her wedding.

The Ceremony was lovely and the couple said their vows and signed the registrar to the singing a Gospel Choir

It was then time to go back to Barry's parents house were a huge marquee had been set up with a stunning red carpet to greet the Guests.

It was a lovely hot 4th July and the Guests enjoyed drinks and canapes whilst listening to a very funky Steel Band.

As the Guests were invited into dinner they were able to admire the stunning flower decorations by Amanda at Distinctly Floral.

It was soon time for speeches and the cutting of the Empire State Wedding Cake made by Icing on The Cake.

The couple had a big surprise in store for the Guests as they started their first dance, a slow romantic number which they performed with style and then the music beat changed on burst the most amazing break dancers to take over, entertain and encourage the Guests to join in!

All in all, a spectacular 4th July Wedding!

Michelle & Will

On behalf of Love & Lord the leading Italian Wedding Planning company I had the pleasure of working with Michelle & Will on their romantic wedding in Tuscany.

Despite a torrent of rain, that could have put a real dampener on the day, the couple had a beautiful ceremony in Sienna a historical walled city - a town so well preserved and maintained, free of traffic and full of history and monuments, to be considered an essential part of the world's cultural heritage.

At the Town Hall, Palazzo Comunale where the civil ceremony was held, Michelle walked down the aisle to join Will and he was blown away by how beautiful she looked.

After the ceremony we managed to get a few photographs in the Piazza del Campo among the tourists and Guests before getting back on board the coaches and making our way to
Villa Vignamaggio in Greve, Chianti.

The Villa of Vignamaggio, surrounded by an elegant Italian garden in a stunningly beautiful corner of the Chianti countryside, offers an authentic testimony of country life during the Renaissance period. The main part of the villa dates back to the 14th century. The Gherardi family who bought the villa from the Gherardini at the end of the 16th century, were responsible for its present appearance.

Mona Lisa, the daughter of Anton Maria Gherardini, was born at Vignamaggio in 1479. It is rumoured that Leonardo's Mona Lisa painting was of her in fact those are Tuscan hills in the background. The film Much A Do About Nothing was also filmed here making good use of the lovely Italian Gardens.

Due to the weather the wedding breakfast was held inside but with the stunning flowers of every colour that Michelle had chosen the room looked amazing.

It was then time for the dancing, and of course that was going to be a fun time as well.
