Wedding at The Compleat Angler – Alex & Steph, A Sneak Peek

A couple of weeks ago I photographed the wedding of Alex & Steph at The Compleat Angler in Marlow. Now, over the years I’ve done a fair few weddings there but it did look lovely in the low September sunlight with the river flowing past.ASC-ML-LORD3666-260Both Alex & Steph got ready at The Compleat Angler so, as always, Kiti & I went our separate ways – Kiti with the groom & I with the bridal party to capture them both getting their glad rags on.ASC-KS-IMG_0044-4ASC-ML-LORD2502-48After getting ready Alex & his Best Man made the short journey from the hotel in a bright red MG to the church at Bisham.ASC-KS-IMG_0124-14

ASC-ML-LORD2559-62It was then time for me to hot foot it to the church ready to get some shots of Steph, her Dad & the bridesmaids arriving & making their way into the church.ASC-ML-LORD2645-84 ASC-ML-LORD2668-87

After a lovely service Alex & Steph made their way out of the church to be greeted by a flurry of bubbles.ASC-KS-IMG_0446-65 ASC-ML-LORD2806-124

We did some shots with their friends & family before they departed in style to make their way back to The Compleat Angler. I dashed back & ran back to the bridge so I could get a shot of them on the iconic bridge!ASC-ML-LORD3053-175 ASC-ML-LORD3071-178It was now time for the group shot of everyone at the wedding testing my physical fitness as in my time I have climbed a church tower & hung out of many a window to capture the shot. At The Compleat Angler, with weather permitting, I gather the guests on the lawn by the river & make a quick dash around & up onto the bridge to get the shot from a vantage point.ASC-ML-LORD3254-201The river & bridge always seems to play an important part in a Compleat Angler wedding. I try to do some stylish bride & groom shots as they walk across the bridge. This is when I employ the skills of the Best Man or bridesmaids, Ushers & my assistant to stop traffic. The guys at Alex & Steph’s wedding did a sterling job & everyone smiled & waved as they drove past!

This is a lovely part of a wedding at The Compleat Angler giving the happy couple time to reflect on their special day.ASC-ML-LORD3520-239After they returned to a flurry of confetti it was time for guests to make their way to the wedding breakfast. Alex & Steph’s Toastmaster did a fabulous job throughout the day & announced them into the room. Toastmasters can be a great addition to your wedding helping with all the details of your day & keeping things on time!ASC-ML-LORD3731-271After some great speeches it was time for Alex & Steph to cut the cake & hit the dancefloor for their first dance as husband & wife.ASC-ML-LORD3998-363It was then time for everyone to hit the dancefloor & we left them all dancing the night away!
