Laura & Gregg
Old Down Manor
We met Laura & Gregg at a wedding fayre, where we hit it off with them straight away and luckily for us they booked there and then. Old Down Manor is a stunning venue with breathtaking views and even though it was the middle of February it was a clear and mild day perfect for a wedding and pictures. We started our day at Laura’s beautiful family home where she grew up with her lovely Mum, Dad and brother. We were offered a cuppa before our cameras were even out of their bags so we knew it was going to be a good day!
Prep pics done and we made our way to the local Church where we met Gregg and their very cute son Seb, both looking particularly handsome. Laura arrived, a little late (the Bride’s prerogative!) but looking a dream in her wedding dress that had been personalised by her Mum, who had spent many hours adding bling! It was not only Laura & Gregg’s special day but Sebs too, as towards the end of his Mummy and Daddy’s wedding he was christened, lovely moment. A few photos at the church and it was on to Old Down Manor where a glass of bubbly was waiting for the happy couple plus Laura’s Dad’s pride and joy, his Porsche, another opportunity for great pictures. Laura and Gregg had arranged for the resident pony Clyde to make an appearance as a special treat for Seb, although I have to admit I think Laura enjoyed it more. And then to top off the animal interaction the couples family dogs arrived to get in on the action…nice touch guys. Soon after dinner and it was time for the speeches and today the Bride had a few words to say, such a heartfelt and warm speech it was too. The evening started with a very special appearance from Gregg and his band ‘True Strays’ singing all the couples favourite songs, a really nice way to kick start the party.
Thank you to you both for letting us be part of your special day, it was great with so many amazing moments for us to capture.
