Natalie & James... Married at Dodford Manor

My first wedding of 2015 and what a great one to kick off the new year with.

Things have been a bit hectic so far this year so I've only just got around to popping this on the blog.

Natalie & James were married in mid-January at Dodford Manor, a fantastic barn wedding venue in Northamptonshire.

The bridal preparations started at a hotel in Northampton where Natalie and a lot of the guests had stayed the night before the wedding. Natalie and her bridesmaids then moved to Dodford Manor to finish off their hair and make-up preparations.

Despite a harsh, freezing cold winter wind, the rain stayed away and Natalie & James enjoyed some lovely winter sun for their wedding day, even if it was bitterly, bitterly cold in the wind!

Natalie was very calm in the lead up to the cermeony and looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress as she came down the aisle with her father.

It was a real pleasure to share Natalie & James's wedding celebrations and I wish them every happiness for the future.

...We knew when we met with Scott that he was the right photographer to capture our moments on our special day. He was a calm presence, and obviously very enthusiastic about what he does. And he does it fabulously! Arriving early in the morning to take some shots while the bride and bridesmaids got ready wasn’t a problem for Scott – despite revealing later the long day he had previously. A True professional. Aside from taking photo’s – Scott turned into unofficial Prosecco opener and pourer for the bridal party prep! Brilliant!

Scott got the photos we had asked for and ploughed through all of our group shots, so that people were not out in the cold for too long. He really captured all of our special moments and to say we are delighted with our pictures would be an understatement. Scott really was great on the day and afterwards, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him...
