Six flower-girls. Plus a bridesmaid.
Normally bridal prep is a relaxed but tense affair. Usually a time for the nerves to build, the little last minute panics, and the taste of hairspray. But this was a bit different. Manic would be a good word. Bride, bridesmaid, and 6 girls all getting ready, plus accompanying parents and family members helping out. Suddenly the rather large suite at the beautiful Hazlewood Castle seemed rather small.
You might remember Anna and Sam from their pre-wedding shoot at Flamborough. They were the ones paddling in the sea whilst it rained. So I knew this was going to be a fun wedding, and that they weren’t scared of a bit of rain. And yes, possibly a bit manic.
But the rain stayed away (for the most part), and the flower-girls behaved impeccably (for the most part) and we got to take a walk in some amazing light in the evening. It was such a genuinely touching day to be part of. And I even managed to capture Anna’s serious face.
Thank you to Sam and Anna for inviting me along. You broke me a little bit that day, but it was worth it.
Here’s what happened…
