Now it’s time for the wedding of Leah and Connor, this lovely couple from Ilkeston booked us in February this year and we hadn’t had chance to meet them before their big day, but we had had lots of emails and face book chats so felt as we knew them.
The morning of the wedding arrived and they had booked us for our Luxury all day Photography Package so it was just Kellie and I today, we arrived with Leah to find Sharon from Makeup Algarve Sharon Phillips working her magic on Leah and she looked stunning, but then Sharon’s brides always do as you can see…..
We then went over to meet the boys, Connor, his best man and groomsmen and to our surprise we didn’t expect to find them asleep!! Yes thats right, a room full of men running around in their boxer shorts trying to get ready… Kellie and I have never done a groom prep like it but it was so much fun…. I carried on shooting whilst Kellie was doing bracers, putting on bow ties and attaching flowers to their shirts…. Connor your groom prep will be a one we never forget. 🙂
The couple had decided on having their Algarve Wedding at the Tivoli in Portimao and the ceremony was set up beautifully overlooking the Marina, as Connor waiting for his bride we could see the nerves were setting in, however he had his best man next to him to give me a hug when he needed it.
Connor and Leah have been together for years they actually met at school and you can see the love for each other, they have a little daughter Lola who was a flower girl and confidently walked down the isle ahead of her Mum.
And as Leah was reunited with Connor at the alter you can just see the love in his eyes as he grabbed her for a kiss…. this was before any of the ceremony had started.
The ceremony was so relaxed and full of laughs and the couple walked back down the isle as husband and wife, it was a great afternoon with the group shots done by the marina and as the sun was setting we got Connor and Leah into a Hotel buggy and headed off to the beach for the sunset shots, we had so much fun with them and laughed all the time, and we managed to get them some amazing images that will stay with them for ever.
We would like to wish Leah, Connor and Lola all the luck for the future and thanks for a great wedding, Connor Beer and a few shots when your back again 🙂
