Ben & Candy - First Glimpse

On Saturday I spent the day with Ben and Candy as they exchanged vows at All Saints in Leighton Buzzard followed by a reception at the MK Dons Stadium in Milton Keynes.

I had a great pre-wedding shoot with this couple (blog post here) and was really looking forward to seeing them get married and meeting their two children - Layla and Drew. The kids are divine - Layla is a complete cutey and Drew is suitably cheeky for a 3 year old...

I've yet to edit the wedding but have pulled out a few images for them to see before they head off on holiday/honeymoon with their kids.

Drew was not hugely keen on the idea of wearing the same as Daddy - in fact it took Ben and 2 of the ushers to get him into his clothes but my word was he scrumptious in them.

His big sister Layla decided in the morning that she quite fancied wearing Mummy's Tiara but luckily she is a little treasure and moved back to her flower hairband once she had her dress on.

Ben and Candy had told me about Layla's eyes - absolutely beautiful - one green iris and one blue.

It was lovely that Ben got ready with Drew and Candy with Layla.

I don't often get the chance to take very many 'bridal portraits' - always due to lack of time or sometimes a very tense bride. Candy was ready in plenty of time giving me the chance to focus on her lovely face and rather stunning lashes.

During the signing Drew took the opportunity to run around a bit - he knew I was the lady with the big lens by this stage - I just love his confidence here.

The confetti shot still makes me laugh. Let's just say I had to get bossy which I HATE. Because wedding photographers have a bad name thanks to the pushy ones. But sometimes a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do.

I got to travel up front in the fab Rolls Royce - I loved the view.

They both so enjoyed the couple session on the edge of Stockgrove Park. However much I tell couples that they will need this time alone they never understand until the day.



This was the end of the peace and quiet...

And thank you so much for my chocolates and card. I've never been mentioned in a speech before - it totally threw me! xx
