Sarah and Mark’s wedding took place in late June in the city of Lincoln. The ceremony took place at St Nicolas Parish Church just outside the centre, with the following wedding breakfast at the White Hart Hotel right in the centre, with views of the cathedral from the roof top terrace.

I arrived in Lincoln very early and drove straight in to the centre to have a look around. I got the idea of using this location from The cathedral is an amazing place and a great location for weddings, especially the wedding photography part!. I spent some time wandering around the cobbled streets around the hotel, checking out locations for shots and basically getting to know the area.

Then I drove up to the brides Mum and Dads house and joined Sarah, Mum and Dad and 6 bridesmaids all getting ready for the day. I had a quick brew and a chat, and then got the camera out and started shooting.

They enjoyed food and champagne in the garden, in fact Sarah’s mum insisted I eat something! which I couldn’t refuse. Sarah was very chilled out and it was the bridesmaids busying about, loosing shoes, looking for make up, etc etc, in fact Sarah spent most of the time doing the bridesmaids hair and attaching false eyelashes to numerous eyelids.

So as soon as I’d got enough shots of the preparations I moved on to the pub next door to the church where the groom and many guests were having a quick drink. i took a few shots there and then went across to the church for the arrival of the bridesmaids.

So then some shots of the groom and his best man, and then it wasn’t long until the bride arrived with her father and the wedding got under way.

Walk the streets

I joined the party at the hotel afterwards, did some group shots on the roof terrace, and then took Sarah and Mark into the cobbled streets around the White Hart Hotel and Lincoln’s amazing cathedral.

I stayed for the wedding breakfast and took photographs of the speeches, cake cutting, and then left them to enjoy the rest of there wonderful day.
