At long last Spring arrived for the wedding of Chelsea & Ian, the sun shone, there were blue skies and we had the most amazing couple to photograph. Their wedding ceremony and reception was held at the lovely Plough & Harrow Hotel Edgbaston Birmingham. There were so many wedding photography opportunities from grunge to glamour, from intimate to spectacular it was an awesome day with a beautiful couple.
The wedding day began at Ian's family home with his best man and parents and an array of wonderfully and sometimes crazy presents from Chelsea which kept us laughing all morning. Like Ian it was a very relaxed morning, nothing flustered him and there was plenty of funnies between Ian and his best man. With his infectious smile Ian looked every bit the dashing groom.
Then it was across to the Plough & Harrow for Chelsea's bridal preparations. Chelsea has a naturalness which the camera adores. She looked breathtakingly beautiful in her flowing wedding dress and waist length veil. The simplicity of pearls worked perfectly, finishing off a very elegant and chic look. Chelsea has this ability to give exactly what the camera is looking for whether that's sultry or spontaneous joy.
The whole day simply flowed uninterrupted, its was relaxed and yet very intimate with time to talk and share and we caught lots of lovely reportage images of family and friends enjoy and celebrating Chelsea & Ian's wedding. I think the fact that Chelsea & Ian's wedding gifts to themselves were a pair of specially made "Converse" trainers, which they wore for most of their wedding photography, tells you just how chilled out their wedding day was and how personal. We loved it!
As you will see from these 20 highlights together Chelsea & Ian look great together whatever the location and style, they did everything we asked of them which is probably why we have got 650+ images to process, so they will take a little longer to get ready.
Chelsea & Ian have a Cherish The Dress location shoot coming up and we can't wait. I know that wherever they decide to go it will be unique and totally unpredictable and that the photographs are going to be stunning. Keep watching this space to see the highlights from their Cherish Day Photography
