Here we go with another lovely wedding of Michelle and James in Kinver.
A magical day in all senses of the word the day began with a tractor, included a dapper Pug called Carlos and a ball and chain, read on for more!
Michelle and James had everything contained within a small area of a few hundred metres with James’s parents house, which Michelle was getting ready at, just over the road from St Peters Church and the reception taking place in the grounds in a large marquee.
After some bridal preparation shots of Michelle and her bridesmaids at the house we headed over to the church where the groom and groomsmen arrived atop a hay bail filled trailer pulled by a tractor, beers in hand – what a great way to arrive!
A little nervous, but looking beautiful, Michelle and her bridesmaids arrived for what was a lovely wedding ceremony, unfortunately rudely interrupted by a storm and thunder which meant we were restricted to photographing some of the group photographs in the church. Fortunately it was at St Peters Church which is a truly stunning church with a large stained glass window at the back that makes for a perfect background.
The weather finally back under control we headed back out of the church for some photographs of the Michelle and James as well as a fairly full on confetti shot (if they’re not still finding it a month later then you’ve really just not tried hard enough I think!)
An emotional speech or two to follow with a good old fashioned roasting of the groom by the best men, finally being handed a plastic ball and chain as a keepsake.
With the evening wedding guests arriving the reception really got going with Carlos the pug making an appearance, looking extra dapper in his little suit. A few group shots here and there were most definitely topped by the photograph of the mother of the groom with all the groomsmen – being hoisted up across them – much to her surprise!
A poorly chosen jägerbomb challenge by the bridesmaids with the band in full swing, we left the new Mr & Mrs, Michelle and James to enjoy the rest of the day.
Congratulations to you both, we wish you a lifetime of happiness together, thank you for making us a part of your wedding day
