Gemma & Rob's Boathouse Wedding
Oh how I absolutely loved being part of Gemma and Rob’s wedding at The Boathouse, Ormesby.
The attention to detail was truly amazing… the wooden dresser that Rob had refurbished upon which was variety of glass jars of sweets and cakes, the ‘just in case’ umbrellas (pun intended), flip flops for dancing when the heels were starting to hurt, the birdcage for cards and gifts, outside games for the children, small bags of biodegradable confetti, personalised little easels as place names for the guests… wow they seem to have thought of every little detail.
Gemma and Rob also made me feel sooo welcome… a sort of warmth, like I was part of their extended family. The beaming welcoming smile from Gemma on seeing my reflection in a mirror when I first met up with her, the lovely bridesmaids and mum. Rob with hammer in hand putting up signage for the wedding and shaking my hand like he was greeting a real good friend. I also greatly appreciated that Gemma and Rob had decided to seat me with their guests for their wedding breakfast (along with my own personal name easle) and that the friends & family on the table where I was sat, made me really feel part of their group.
The day itself was beautiful as it always seems to be at The Boathouse… how can it not be beautiful with those idyllic surroundings. A little bit of rain didn’t dampen spirits and the photo opportunities (including a 'dove release') were just worked around the showers. Gemma and Rob really seemed quite relaxed throughout their special day and just enjoyed every minute (must mention Helen their registrar… one of the unsung hero’s of weddings I think whose influence and happy smile always seems to have a calming influence on proceedings… yes Rob?).
Thanks Gemma and Rob for choosing me as your wedding photographer. I wish you a long and happy marriage and I hope you take great pleasure from your wedding images for many years to come (pleased that you love the wooden usb presentation box guys).
