"Thank you sooo much!!! We absolutely love the pictures. I'm so glad that we found you!"
There were many other amazing things about this wedding. Hannah and Marek got ready together in the morning - as Hannah said to me, it seemed almost a stranger idea to get ready separately. Marek had also helped Hannah to choose the beautiful wedding dress, so it was very much a team effort right the way through. I loved this quote from Hannah:
"The day was special to Marek and I in so many ways. I'm glad we spent the whole day together; getting ready, etc. We've been together for 5 years before getting married and we truly are best friends. I needed my best friend that morning leading up to the ceremony."
Marek joined Hannah in the grooming process, having his hair slickly brylcreemed to fit with the 40s/50s. Hannah had the most elegant 'up do', and just looked absolutely beautiful. Hannah and Marek's Cockerpoo, Wulfric, took a particular like to the pink bridal petticoat and made himself comfortable there while everything else was going on!
Hannah and Marek love dancing - in fact, when I did their engagement photographs at Woolacombe (here), they started dancing in the waves, which was particularly wonderful! So they surprised their guests by having the entire bridal party take it in turns to dance up the aisle - just brilliant :). Then they danced again at the end of the ceremony! The music for the day was carefully chosen by by the couple, with an amazing range of big band swing, jitterbug and Rock'n'Roll music from across the decades, creating the most wonderful atmosphere throughout the whole day.
It was a gorgeous, relaxed celebration, from start to finish, and I absolutely loved photographing it. I hope that you will enjoy sharing it too:
