Russ & Sam’s wedding at Aston Marina was such a great day! Right in the middle of this crazy hot spell, it couldn’t have been more perfect, right next to the water too!!

Wedding preparations

Having never been to Aston Marina before, we arrived nice and early to have a good nosey. We also set up everything for Ben to play the sax during dinner. All that done, we headed off to find Sam who was getting ready in the venue with her eldest daughter and a cup of tea. Anyone that loves tea as much as we do, is alright by us! 😉  We were delighted to hear that they were having an outside ceremony and with only roughly 40 guests, we knew it was going to an intimate wedding focused on the couple, their children and their closest people around them.

The wedding ceremony & reception

The guys soon arrived, looking very cool in their suits, Russ especially with his tan, tattoos and aviator sunglasses😎. Seriously, what a dude!! Then out in the garden to get ready for the ceremony! Sam, her dad and her son were lead out into the sunshine by five of the cutest little flowers girls you’ve ever seen! The registrars were lovely and very relaxed about photography so we were able to discreetly move around and capture some lovely moments!

There was loads of time spent in the sunshine at this wedding, but it was sooooo bright that we left a lot of the bride and groom portraits ’till much later into the evening when the light was much softer. In the meantime, we got creative with the venue – including one particularly beautiful image by Ben in the toilets! Yep, you gotta go where the light is!!

The speeches were great, lots of emotion from Russ – bless him and a whole stack of Selfies, of course!! Then Russ’s best men had spent a crazy amount of time putting together a presentation about Russ including his many lookalikes – Ben can see the Tom Cruise likeness, I can definitely see Russell Kane! What do you guys think….?

Anyway, Sam & Russ are such a great couple, so clearly in love and so committed to each other and their 5 children! We thoroughly enjoyed just hanging out with you all!!
