Well where do I start? I love my job! I get to be creative and also get to meet fantastic people and Strat and Emily are high up on the 'absolutely awesome people list!". We instantly had a great rapport, probably all brought together by our love for Marvel and DC!
We kicked off their experience with me at The Board Walk in Port Solent, Portsmouth for their engagement shoot at O Sole Mio Italian Restaurant where they had their first date together and continued with shots around the area.
Strat and Emily chose the beautiful Sopley Mill, just inside Hampshire for their wedding venue which consisted of Pastel colours, a slight vintage feel and a wonderful alternative to a 3 course meal; afternoon tea with sandwiches, fondant fancies and lots of sweets in rustic jars.
The day started at The Manor Hotel in Christchurch (Burton) just down the road from Sopley Mill. Emily and her bridesmaids (her friends and Strats many sisters) were at one end of the Hotel, and Strat and his best man and ushers were on the other side. Continuing their love of Marvel and DC Comics, Strat and the guys all had Super Hero T Shirts on to reveal later on in the day, in addition to their super hero cufflinks.
There were lawn games and an ice cream cart to entertain their guests and we had perfect summer weather thoughout the day. I think Strat made up for pretty much everybody with many tears which made is so very obvious of his love for Emily.
