Congratulations to the lovely Jelena and Neil who were married on the last weekend of November at Holy Cross Church in their home town of Whitwick, Leicestershire. Jelena got ready at their house just 5 minutes away from the church. The atmosphere in the house was great with her family over from Croatia; a surplus of food, music playing, people singing, chatting. All this happening whilst Jelena and her maid of honour Anita were pampered and styled upstairs in her bedroom. Meanwhile Neil was calmly getting ready at his Mum and Dad’s home with his best man, Scott. With groom and best man safely transported to church guests arrived and with Jelena only 5 mins away from the Church surely the service would start on time. It’s the bride’s prerogative to be late and 15 minutes was well worth the wait for Neil as Jelena walked down the aisle looking stunning in a Maggie Sottero full lace figure hugging dress, with her hair beautifully styled to one side. They married in a thoughtful service with friends and family watching on. Winter weddings can give any photographer sleepless nights, but although cold, the weather stayed dry. After a drive to the reception, the available light was quickly diminishing but as it did it left some golden winter skies and it gave us the opportunity to try out a bit of  combination lighting outside and inside using the amazing backdrop of Prestwold Hall. We rose to the challenge and created some gorgeous shots of the happy couple. Thank you Jelena and Neil for your relaxed attitude and for looking brilliant . . .

Your partying in the evening was fab, I particularly liked your idea of  a dance with your brother Jelena. We had a fantastic day, a huge congratulations to you both! XX
