On a lovely sunny day in June, I headed off to the De Vere Hotel, in Gorse Hill, Woking, to meet up with Jenny whilst she was getting ready. The usual chaos of entering a bridal preparation room was all around, and the getting ready photos will show you that it doesn’t matter where you are getting ready, there are always ways to get good shots.

These are the first pair of Jimmy’s that I have photographed, and I was really pleased with the spot I found to hang them outside.

Jenny’s Father was waiting ages for his first chance to see his beautiful daughter in her wedding dress, and I was really pleased to be there to capture this moment.

On my way out to the St. Hughes Church, Knaphill, I stopped to take a shot of the car Jenny and her Father would be taking.

When I got to the church, Michael was waiting outside with his ushers and best man.

Gone a bit retro with this image, I think the wood panelling demands it.

If you are a bride, and you do read my text, this is an interesting photo because Jenny is looking at the camera, not Michael. I have noticed that brides always look ahead when they start walking down the aisle, just to check the groom is there, but when they get close, 50% look anywhere but at him. Must be down to nerves and not wanting to bring on any tears at the start of the ceremony.

This is another shot I have no control over, and whilst you would expect both bride and groom to be smiling, I think Michael is in a state of shock but he does want to smile.

Here is the lovely De Vere, Gorse Hill.

Time for another unusual group photo, this time the ladies decided to show some sass.
