Laura & Gareth …..

March 14, 2013 | Weddings

Dear Laura & Gareth,

When we first met at the Belle Epoque I knew instantly it was going to be a special wedding

You both wanted a relaxed day surrounded by the people you love and who love you most….and that was exactly what you got

a day filled with love and laughter

It is so easy sometimes to lose sight of what your day is truly about…. sometimes a wedding can gain a life of its own and start rolling out of control like a train on a track…. but you both stood firm in what you wanted and you also picked the most perfect venue to help make your dream come true.

The Belle Epoque  ….. a truly wonderful place…. dark and atmospheric ….. its staff attentive beyond…… a quirky and characterful venue with a personality of its own like a grand old aunt with a wicked sense of humour …… you relax as soon as you walk into its welcome

But one thing really made your day especially unique….. you

 so ready to be married… so sure of your path together … relaxed and chilled ….  and as warm as the amazing Belle Epoque herself …. your day was an utter utter joy

I am so glad you chose me to shoot your wedding … it is a day that will lodge in my memory for many reasons and I am so happy you love your images as much as I loved shooting them

All my love

Andrea x

 of course special thanks must go to the amazing …crazy…ninja…bacon loving Jay Mountford who found herself taking a monster detour on her way home to Birmingham just to second shoot this wedding with me……

thankful ? me ? you betcha !
