Having met Melissa about 7 years ago at my best friends hen weekend (Melissa is her cousin), it was an absolute pleasure to be a part in her own special day.
Melissa is so naturally pretty I knew she was going to be stunning on camera. The day was full of gorgeous sunshine, and with that, I have to add, were some gorgeous people! Seriously, ALL of the guests were good looking, I was in my element, and really actually struggled to narrow down a small selection of photos for this post.
Kevin and Melissa have been together since their teens! Real childhood sweethearts. They were recently married in St Lucia, where Melissa’s family is from, so Melissa had the challenge of basically arranging two weddings in one summer, she hired Rugie from Mrs Wedding Planner for the day at Luton Hoo to help things run smoothly. Rugie certainly had her hands full, with a large number of guests, an outdoor ceremony, doves, Sax player, fireworks, African drummers the list goes on.
Melissa and her bridesmaids looked gorgeous as you can see below and with a very dapper Groom and Groomsmen I managed to capture some great shots.
Peter Alberti joined me to second shoot the first half of the day, I must say I definitely needed a helping hand with so much going on, massive thanks Pete.
I would also like to take this opportunity to say a huge Congratulations to Kevin and Melissa, you are a lovely couple and I wish you many years of happiness as husband and wife. I hope you like your photos and I look forward to catching up with you soon.
