Friern Manor Wedding Photography

What a brilliant wedding this was. I first met Jade, Tom and their lovely little furbaby Honey at Belhus Park for a pre shoot. We captured so many great moments whilst chatting about their wedding photography must haves at Friern Manor. It’s always a massive bonus meeting before the wedding, especially if I get to take a few snaps. The couple can get a feel of how I work and take away some photos, which is great. The guys also used some of these photos for the wedding details so it really is a brilliant thing.

The wedding started at Friern Manor with meeting Jade and the girls for bridal prep. The girls enjoyed a few glasses of champagne and they were all really good company to be around. Jade’s sister, in particular, was very funny who made lots of great moments for the rest of the day. I also got the opportunity to document Tom and his groomsmen greeting their guests. This resulted in some very candid, real moments of love and friendship. I also got to document the first look with Jade’s Dad. You will see this moment further down.

After the ceremony, we got some photo opportunities with Jade and Tom’s dog Honey which, as a result, led to one of my favourite moments. A Friern Manor wedding offers lot’s of great little spots for photos and we was blessed with some golden hour. This was even more a blessing as it rained not long before.

I got to witness lots of emotional moments throughout the day with the ceremony and speeches standing out. I always find it such an honour that I get to document special moments like this. It really makes this job standout over any other.
