Nazneen & Paul - The George in Rye
The George Hotel in Rye is always a joy to photograph and Nazneen & Paul's wedding was a joy to be a part of. Lots of emotion, fun and laughter, enough to fill 3 weddings. More importantly, for us, it provided photo opportunity after photo opportunity.
We arrived in the morning full of anticipation of the day ahead and made our way to the Bridal suite and the room in which Paul was preparing with his Best Man. There was lots of excitement all round. After Nazneen was dressed and ready, and the guests had taken their seats in The Ballroom, I made sure to utilise The George's lovely courtyard garden area for some photos of the beautiful Nazneen and importantly #teambride.
The ceremony presents for me one of my favourite photos of the day and one of the best 'first look' photos I have ever taken in my career. The look on Nazneen's face as she makes eye contact with her very soon to be husband is priceless and full of so much emotion! Once the ceremony was under way the star of the show had to be the couple's little page boy Darwin, who's turn as ring bearer melted everyone's heart in the room.
One of the best things about photographing at The George is the joy of being able to wander out with the Bride and Groom into the historic town of Rye. So many lovely settings and such interesting backdrops for photos. We took a wander out for a good 15 mins or so. It's also lovely for the Bride and Groom as they have the opportunity to spend a few mins away from their guests and take it all in.
After the dinner and speeches, it was time for the evening to begin. One thing we did not expect to see was a fantastically entertaining dance-off between Nazneen's two Groomsmen, John & Ricky. The guys certainly knew how best to get the party started!! It was time to leave them all to it and for Steph and myself to make our way home. We wish this wonderful couple all the best for the future and all it brings! Thank you for a very, very enjoyable day at work.
