I drove down through the Lakes for the start of what was to be a great wedding day for Tessa and Andy. The idea was that I was going to drop in on Andy at Windermere Golf Club for his 8am tee off time in the winter tournament there. It was always the intention that Andy would play a round of golf on the morning of his wedding and with him and the best man finishing at 7 under par, the day had begun with a bang.

Back in Kendal, the girls were getting ready and opening up the presents that Andy had sent through for Tessa. It was a hoot going through everything with Tessa who was as relaxed as I have ever seen on a wedding day. She had some fabulous Vivienne Westwood shoes and a vintage style dress that fitted her like a glove. Many conversations where had about makeup and the location of Antigua…….. Its not in Spain.

Most of the guests at the wedding came from further afield and most were staying at what is a really unique wedding venue that is styled perfectly for Andy and Tessas semi vintage wedding. They even had an e-type jaguar for the day which all of the men folk were cooing over.

Tessa smiled all day, so it was hard to put the camera down… I took hundreds just of her on her own!

After going back into the church for the groups, everyone left for the reception, which gave me a little more time top do some shots of Andy and Tessa on their own. The church is on the side of a fell looking over into a huge valley that leads down to Morecambe bay. The view was more than a little hazy, so the most we could make out was the outline of the hills in the distance. It still made for some great photographs though.

Flawless brides make my days and hours slaving over images seem a little less challenging.

Had less time than expected with Tessa and Andy before they went in for their meal supplied be the delectable Lucys of Ambleside, but managed to get a stack of images done quickly beforehand.

Their first dance was to Zero 7 – Destiny. The band nailed it too.

It felt like the day before that I started photographing this wedding which probably explaines the ammount of images that I had to wade through on the Sunday. I was blown away by how accomodating and friendly everyone was, even after herding people together for a big group shot of all guests. Best of luck in the future both, your album will be amazing….
