Mr & Mrs Hodgkins
The Future ‘Mr & Mrs’ Hodgkins
When Katie and Leigh contacted Memos Studios, they had asked me to capture their wedding preparations. Choosing our ‘deluxe package’ Katie and Leigh were going to obtain a keepsake of memories that would last a lifetime. Before we met up, I had a wonderful conversation with the couple. Katie told me all about her ideal day and I was excited in capturing their special memories.
The Engagement Photo Shoot
On a wintery morning in November 2015, I arrived at a local woodland area close to where Katie and Leigh live. Walking up to the couple, who were cuddling under an umbrella to avoid the rain, It was immediately apparent of their strong relationship and before saying hello I started photographing. For the next two hours we were able to obtain images in a beautiful surrounding with the added advantage of the wintry and rainy weather conditions. Being able to capture the couple with the most extreme weather helped to accumulate some fantastic shots of their intimate moments with the camera lens.
Drying off in a warm coffeehouse we got to discuss their wedding plans and it was remarkable how calm both Katie and Leigh were with only seven months till their big day. I got to show them a few of the pictures I had captured that day and it was wonderful to build such a close relationship with the couple.
The Wedding Day
Situated in Dillington House Taunton- 4th June 2016
“Dillington is a stunning location where the juxtaposition of past and present combine to offer an amazing experience whatever your interest”
What a setting for a wedding I thought as I drove up in the morning! Getting my cameras ready I made plans to greet Leigh. Being as relaxed as in our first engagement shoot I was able to take images of the boys relaxing with some target shooting in the grounds of the estate. It went down a storm!
Walking up to Katie suite the preparations were already underway. The camera and i took a low-key role, aimed at capturing the bride and bridesmaids getting prepared for the big event. Nothing was staged, everything that was photographed was real.
The wedding ceremony was as beautiful as the couple and it was wonderful to see that Katie and Leigh were now officially, Mr & Mrs Hodgkins. For the next hour, my cameras got to capture Katie in her stunning wedding dress and Leigh in his wedding attire. There were so many guests making their day special it was easy to capture images of the relationships between the couple and their close bonds with both family and friends.
After such a delightful wedding the couple returned to the banquet hall where I was able to capture the meal and speeches. Nothing was staged and when the couple look back at the photographs they will see the reactions of themselves and guests over the successful speeches and meal.
The first song came and went and then the real party began! All the intimate and private moments had been captured and it was now time for some fun. As part of the ‘deluxe package’ the ‘photobooth’ was in full swing and it was great to see the adults and kids having a great time in front of a camera!
I wish Mr & Mrs Hodgson all the happiness in their future lives together and it so rewarding as a wedding photographer to capture true love in a stunning location.
