There are so many things that come to mind when I think back to Mike and Crystals Wedding Day. From the little touches of decor that made the venue theirs, the pictures of them growing up,  the doughnut wedding cake, the unique flowers they had designed by Syd Kemsley Florist, their personal hashtag they created #TheBradleysPerfectlyBlended,  the laughter… much laughter and love. Love between them but also the love you could feel they held for their friends and family.
The two of them are such a perfect blend of genuity (not a word but if it was it would be them). You know they are sincere, funny and just so easy to be around. I felt lucky they chose me to photograph their special day.
My morning started with the girls who were getting ready at the Retro Suites Hotel. Everyone was relaxed and glowing as I captured some details. It wasn’t long before we were heading to the ceremony at the Links of Kent Golf Club. My second shooter, Steven Taylor had been with the guys photographing their morning prep at their home.
Crystal made for a stunning Bride. I love watching the grooms face when he first lays eyes on his gorgeous Bride. Just as the morning went their ceremony was full of laughter as well. James Mac Neil has a way with words and was a perfect officiant for this wedding.
We had a little bit of time after the ceremony to take some wedding pictures. Again, laughter was the theme. I love how relaxed these two were during their photo session.
Mike and Crystal did their first dance upon their entrance. It may have brought tears to my eyes to hear it was an Elvis song. Waylan from Just Grin Productions was a wonderful DJ as usual. He really knows how to read a dance floor.
Dinner was absolutely amazing. The Links of Kent always pulls off an superb meal. During the dinner they had speeches and a hilarious friend who MC’d. I believe he found a book on marriage poems that had me crying in laughter.
It was such a wonderful day to be able to photograph for such a remarkable couple.
Let me share some of my favourite images from their wedding day. If you wish to look back at their engagement session you can here.
