On 7th November, I photographed the wedding of Georgina Hirst and Stephen Vaughan up at the beautiful Lake Vyrnwy! However I started the day just outside Welshpool at Georgina’s family home – although I arrived in a bit of a state with branches stuck under my car … sheepdog paw prints down my window … and probably a few pheasant feathers, having nearly run over a few dozen – literally!
Anyhoo, the ladies were underway in getting ready when I arrived, pretty calm and collected altogether! I was in awe when I saw Georgina’s dress – it was just stunning and I’m glad to report that despite her concerns, she DID fit the dress down the aisle!
The heavens did open up when the ceremony concluded but I think we successfully dodged the showers for most of the photos. Despite the soggy conditions, Stephen and Gina were absolute troopers – I really enjoyed shooting the couples photos and I think their can-do attitude shows … being perched over a very steep drop, balancing on a rickety boat and dancing on a slippery giant table to name just a few health and safety risks!
Having taken the wedding photos for Stephens sister a few years ago, it was lovely to see some familiar faces and how the family has grown! Everyone was on good form and just genuinely nice people. It’s always great to see two families unite!
Congrats to you both – you are such a lovely couple!
So, without further ado, I give you Mr & Mrs Vaughan…
