We arrived at the Orchid not long before Laura returned from the hairdresser, her hair style was one that was going to last all day and looked amazing. As we photographed the accessories Laura was having her makeup done and it wasn’t long before she was getting into her dress, she looked stunning. While the bridesmaids were getting ready we had some time with Laura for some Bridal portraits before they joined us along with her parents.
The ceremony was held inside and the drinks reception outside in the courtyard. With a few family photographs taken we set off for the beach with just the Bride and Groom while the guests relaxed back at the hotel.
The beach was quite busy as the forecast had been really good and everyone was expecting wall to wall sunshine, although it was warm the sun hadn’t broken through the clouds yet. We took Laura and Chris to the water’s edge so with the sea in the background it doesn’t matter if the beach is busy.
Back at the hotel a photograph of everyone was being organised in the courtyard and with a large number of wedding guests we are able to shoot from a first floor window so that everyone can be seen. After this the guests were invited in to take their seats for the wedding breakfast and Laura and Chris were announced in to a rapturous round of applause.
We wish Laura and Chris all the very best for their future together. We are busy preparing their images from the day so while we are doing this we hope you enjoy these few images from their day.
All of the photos from the day will be available to view online as soon as we have seen Laura and Chris.
