Frankie and Dave got married on a crisp frosty Saturday at the beginning of December. I first met the two of them during their engagement shooting late in the summer at her grandpa’s home in Frisby on the Wreake. They had chosen this place because it had lots of memories. Well even more memories were to be had as this was also the place that Frankie chose to transform herself into a gorgeous bride and walk with her Grandpa, down the lane to church for him to give her away. I loved the significance of getting ready within her grandparents home, all the personal touches, the homely feeling and her dress reflected in her late grandmothers dressing table mirror. Dave’s preparations had a slightly different spirit and feel as he and his son (and best man) smartened themselves up at the family home with ushers there having a real laugh.

The church service was meaningfully delivered amidst the beautiful interior and light within St Thomas Church, Frisby on the Wreake A piper played the newly married couple out of church at which point they continued to walk on through the village (stopping on the way for some pictures) before hitting the road to The Griffin Inn, Swithland. The venue for the reception was a lovely cosy barn conversion and we last photographed there in the height of summer. Tastefully adopting a winter interior styling, it was great to see that this intimate and charming venue works well whatever the season.

The day was a wonderful wintery affair, the fur shrugs, the sparkle from Frankie’s dress, the low golden sunlight and Frankies fluffy slippers! The day wouldn’t be complete without mentioning two little stars of the show, Dave’s children, gorgeous!

You were all great to work with on the day. Dave and Frankie you were especially brave for bracing the cold to help us to create some beautiful images. It was a total joy to see you so happy together. Congratulations! xx
