Peppones Restaurant in Crondall was the location for the wedding of Kelly and Jeremy at the very end of last year. Kelly and Jez are the type of people who everyone wants to be around, and anyone would want as a friend. From the moment that I first met them, their relaxed and giggly attitude to their wedding was refreshing, and catching! For them it was all about the food, the party, and just celebrating being together. The fact that it was a wedding, and to be held at their favourite eatery Peppones Restaurant in Crondall, was just part of the fun and relaxed vibe that they created.
Its apt that I am blogging about this on a very wet and windy day, as wedding wellies were bought and on the ready for the shots that we did outside! Luckily the weather was beautiful, and the wellies more for the wet grass than any rain. I love it when clients have ideas that they want to use, as it makes the wedding photographs, and the whole wedding day itself feel much more personal.
Another touch that I loved was the cans tied to the back of Kelly’s beloved Mercedes! Their wedding ceremony was held at Guildford Registry office, and as they left, the clanking of cans as they bounced down the drive is something that I will remember for a while! The journey from Guildford to Crondall was uneventful, but it was the last leg, as we approached Peppones Restaurant that you have to negotiate pot holes galore before driving up to a small oasis of calm at the end. The welcome was warm and very Italian, with drinks at the ready, and comfy sofas and welcome drinks for all of the wedding guests.
What I love about my job as a wedding photographer, is that every wedding is different. Each couple bring their own character and feeling to the day, and whether its a stunning Georgian mansion, or a cosy Italian restaurant tucked next to a golf club, my job remains the same. Its about capturing the love and the romance, the fun and the emotion, and most of all, providing every couple with a set of images that will provide generations of memories. On that note – I would just like to say a huge congratulations to Kelly and Jez, who not only have so recently tied the knot, but have just let me know that they are expecting twins! I wish them all the happiness and laughter for the future, and look forward to hearing about their next adventure together.
