I first met James and Ellie in a coffee place in central London where they told me all about the plans for their day. It sounded like they had a very elegant wedding planned, and at a stunning location- Coworth Park in Ascot, so I knew it was going to be a good day!
The day started with the couple at Coworth Park, Ellie with her bridesmaids in the main house and James with his groomsmen in one of the many apartments onsite. Coworth is a great location with some beautiful grounds.
Their ceremony took place down the road at pretty local church amonst friends and family before the couple took a ride in a very stylish classic car back to the venue.
The weather was a little on the wet side on the day, but cleared long enough for me and the photographer to take some lovely shots with couple in the grounds of Coworth. I found a line of trees in the morning while scouting the venue that I knew I wanted to use for a shot of the couple, and these couple of shots have becoming a feature of their film, opening and closing it.
James gave a lovely speech, reciting how he and Ellie met and their story up to this day which makes a great narrative for their film.
It was a pleasure to be part of the couples day, they are clearly very much in love and I hope this comes across in the film!
