It was only a few days until Christmas and I set off to Hampton Manor in Solihull to photograph the soon to be Mr and Mrs Searle. This really was a wedding fit for a princess and that princess was the very beautiful Sophia.
Sophia, a former model, was marrying Super bike champion Tommy Searle and it was set to be a very magical day indeed. The couple met when Sophia was a Monster Energy grid girl and despite losing her job because of their romance, this day was proof it was certainly worth that!
When I met Sophia in the morning she was as cool as a cucumber...quite literally. I was met by the stunning bride while she had on a pre-wedding face mask. It made a funny picture, however i think Sophia would prefer I leave if off my website! Face mask removed, and there she was, the perfect bride to be fresh faced and ready to marry her prince charming.
Sophia, being well used to the glamorous life did her own makeup which looked perfect and her good friend curled her hair, she really did look like something from a fairly tale book.
The service took place in the local church right next to Hampton Manor and the service was perfect. Christmas carols were sung and the Minister really was an interesting character so it made for an interesting and fun service.
Despite it being freezing cold as it was December, Sophia was determined to get some stunning images outdoors and I am so glad she was up for it. The grounds of Hampton Manor are breathtaking. In the little time we had, I was over the moon with what we captured.
One of my favourite parts of the day without a doubt was after the meal when Sophia sent a text to all her hen party girls. Up to her bridal suite they all came, singing Christmas songs and dancing about. It was so adorable and like a scene out of an American movie. I just wanted to join in with them all. It was definitely a special memory for Sophia to look back on with her best friends.
