Jenny & Alex | Wedding | Southport | 25th February 2012
On a very very wet Saturday, we headed down to Southport to photograph the gorgeous wedding of Jenny and Alex. I was really looking forward to photographing Jenny & Alex’s wedding as I knew it was going to be full of creative, gorgeous details all hand made by Jenny. The boys had hand made pin wheel button holes, and Jenny hand made not only her bouquet, but all the bridesmaid’s too! They were stunning and matched the gorgeous baby blue pinwheel theme perfectly. After 5 years together, they started a new chapter with a beautiful heartfelt ceremony in front of 90 people at the Southport Yacht Club. The ceremony was a beautiful reflection of the kind loving people that Jenny and Alex are, with lovely readings from both their mothers. Even though the rain was pouring down outside, nothing could put a damper on the celebrating the love that these two share.
After the ceremony, we had a few minutes of no rain, where we headed out into the boat docks at the Yacht Club for a couple of photographs. Then it was off to Marina Mirage for a few photographs under cover. We found this gorgeous little coffee shop, that let us work our magic and create some beautiful intimate portraits of the happy couple, before heading up stairs to a Chinese Restaurant with a funky blue wall (which pefectly matched the theme). Then we brave the wet weather and headed to a little pocket of beach for some final portraits at dusk. I am so glad that we headed up to the beach, as we were able to capture an amazing shot with the rain tumbling down around them. It is one of my favourite photographs to date!
Then it was back to the reception at the Southport Yacht Club (a little late!) where the party began. We had a crazy booth in the corner and Jenny & Alex partied the night away with their family and friends. We end the night with a lovely sparkler circle with all remaining friends and family. Jenny & Alex, it was a pleasure to be part of your special day. Even though the rain came tumbling down all day, we have been able to capture some absolutely gorgeous portraits to remember your day by. Enjoy your honeymoon and we will be in touch soon to show you the rest!
