As a newly appointed Denbies Vineyard wedding photographer I was thrilled to shoot my first wedding for a friend at this fab Surrey wedding venue. I have known Chris and many of his guests for some time, we met whilst I worked in marketing before I became a full time photographer. Even though our busy and differing career paths meant we hadn’t seen eachother for some time, I was thrilled when Chris got in touch to let me know he was getting married to Ombeline and that they would like me to capture the big day for them. Chris is a top bloke and Ombeline is lovely, a really well suited couple, it was going to be a huge pleasure to capture the wedding for them both. On the day itself I met with Ombeline, her bridesmaids and family at a local Dorking hotel for some candid getting ready photographs before meeting Chris and his fellow band of groomsmen at the local pub prior to the ceremony. There was ample time to capture some shots of them and guests arriving at the church, and great to see some familiar faces. Following on from an entertaining service and some great moments captured (aided by a very relaxed priest), it was soon time to orchestrate a classic celebratory photograph and an opportunity for guests to shower them in confetti. We then headed off to the venue and time for Chris and Ombeline to relax with guests before we went off to take some bride and groom shots up in the vineyard itself, with it’s awesome backdrop of rolling Surrey hills. The reminder of the day was spent capturing lots of natural shots during the wedding breakfast, speeches, evening reception and first dance. Great to see the SEGA boys again, a top wedding all round. Wishing Chris and ombeline all the best for the future. Enjoy some of the key highlights and I look forward to sharing the rest of the shots soon.
