Poppy and Harry got married twice - First they had a legal ceremony at Malvern Registry Office in Worcestershire, and then a week later had the ceremony they'd always dreamed of - outside in the summer sun, standing under a grand oak tree. The location they decided upon for their outdoor wedding was Rock Village Hall in Bewdley.
For the morning of the wedding, Poppy had hired Worralls Grove Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast, a luxury venue that proved to be the perfect place for photos of the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready in the morning.
(If the name sounds familiar, Worralls Grove Farmhouse recently featured on, and won an episode of Channel 4's 'Three in a bed')
Having spent many hours getting ready that morning, the moment which creates the lasting memory for me was when Poppy's dad saw her for the first time on her wedding day. It was a beautiful moment, with Poppy's dad coming forward to hug her. The emotion in this black and white photo is clear, and I'm so happy I was there to capture it.
Moments like these can't be captured if you pose photos, and for me, that's where documentary or 'reportage' wedding photography comes into it's own.
