I first met this lovely family when I took some photos of their daughter at The St Harold Hillier Gardens and when they mentioned they were looking for a photographer for their wedding I so hoped they'd choose me as they are just such a lovely relaxed couple to be around.
Thankfully they did and it was a gorgeous July day when I travelled through the gorgeous poppy fields to Danny's parents house where the reception was being held. Vicky got ready at the house next door then travelled to the church in one of Winston Churchill's old cars (a neighbour is a collector and was happy for them to have the use of it for the day!)
Danny and Vicky had kept it quiet that the service was actually also going to be Sophia's christening - the guests were asked to open the scrolls that they had been given which held the words for the baptism - such a lovely surprise for everyone there. Sophia naturally screamed when the water hit her head and I love the shot of Danny's face as she cries!
After the ceremony I was able to travel with them in that amazing car to a little nature reserve nearby for a couples shoot. They are so clearly in complete adoration of eachother and it was so easy to get beautiful shots of them.
The marquee in Danny's parent's garden on the banks of the River Thames looked stunning with so many sunflower details, hessian, beautiful tea cups and other gorgeous finishing touches. The cake in particular was amazing it being half wedding cake and half christening cake!
The focus was definitely on the three of them as a family and it was just such a gorgeous and fun day. Here are my highlights...
