So, where to start with this wedding?.....It was the first wedding of the season for me and I was really looking forward to Amy and Steve’s day. An Ian Stewart dress was featuring, who wouldn’t be excited?
Emma and I traveled to Brympton D’Evercy House on the Friday to check out the venue and then later met with Amy and the wedding party at a lovely hotel in Yeovil, called The Lanes. All was going to plan.
On Saturday morning, we arrived at the Bridal suite to find Amy looking a little peaky. Amy seemed confident that she would be fine and that all she needed was a little shut eye. We left the girls alone for a bit and went off to photograph some of the house detail before returning to start on photographing the bridal prep. On our return things were not looking much better, in fact Amy was feeling worse and had been physically sick. Everyone was trying to remain calm but the clock was ticking and the morning was slipping away. Amy was unable to even start getting ready as she felt so dreadful. I decided that we needed to take action and fast! I knew that there was an anti sickness injection that could be given so set about calling local GP’s and NHS direct. Nothing seemed to be happening fast enough and no-one was calling us back so I suggested calling Yeovil A&E and seeing if we could get Amy seen at the hospital. Luckily the hospital were amazing and told us to bring Amy straight down.
So I found myself in my car driving to a hospital with a very poorly bride lying on my backseat. Meanwhile back at Brympton guests were arriving, Steve was being informed, registrars were moving the ceremony time and trying to keep everyone calm.
I am pleased to say that there is a happy ending to this wedding day and Amy did make it down the aisle. Amazingly Amy looked incredible after the most awful start to what should have been a really exciting morning.
Amy and Steve were able to enjoy the rest of their wedding day and celebrate with all their friends and family before setting off on the most gorgeous honeymoon. I’m thrilled to be able to share a selection of images from their day.
Lastly, a huge thank you to Emma, my second shooter who held it all together whilst I was at the hospital with Amy. She captured some fab images of Steve and the groomsmen in my absence.
Amy and Steve, thanks for having us as your photographers, it was an unforgettable day!
What an amazing wedding and beautiful images. It was my absolute pleasure to be your second shooter. xxx
