Isla Gladstone Wedding photography

Erin and Joel booked us for their Isla Gladstone wedding photography a couple of years ago after we met at an open afternoon at the Isla Gladstone. They both loved our documentary wedding photography and felt it was a good fit for them. They loved our approach and said “we love what you do and the way you go about it! Just do that on our day please!” It’s always great when we have this kind of connection with our couples…

We arranged to meet up and I explained exactly what documentary wedding photography is. I also went through how we would tell the story of their day. We were all definitely on the same wavelength about photography so, we’re delighted to say, they booked there and then.

We had exchanged emails a few times in the run up to the wedding and had a quick meeting the week before the big day. Both Erin and Joel were organised and quite laid back about the day. We made the final plans and they were very happy to just leave us to do our thing!

Bright sunshine and a chilly wind!

Hazel joined up with Erin and the bridal party while I met Joel and his groomsmen at the church. It was a really bright day with gorgeous sunlight, but it was chilly! The light inside the church was really dramatic and added to the atmosphere of the ceremony. Erin looked amazing in her dress while her bridesmaids looked fab in polkadots! It’s always brilliant to see a bride and groom doing exactly what they want on their day and loving every minute of it.

After the ceremony, we did a few group shots outside the church. We had a few minutes while we waited for the double decker to take the guests to The Isla. It was a it of a wait in the cold but every stayed happy! When we got to the Isla, we did a few portraits while it was sunny and the guests were arriving. We also got the chance to go out again later when it was dark. We grabbed a few really dramatic outside shots!

The day was filled with lots of personal and creative touches which really added to the intimate feel of the day.

Irish Dancing and rock-a-billy band!

There was a great surprise just after the first dance. It turns out that Erin used to do some Irish dancing! The group she used to part of had agreed to come and do a short performance for everyone. It was really superb and everyone loved it! The girls were fantastic and had obviously worked really hard putting the routine together. It was a great way to lead into the remainder of the evening with the brilliant Rock-a-Billy band The Jump Jets.. a truly memorable day.
