Sandra&Mina Wedding Day


One day shy of a week before Sandra and Mina's wedding day, we chat on the phone with Sandra to talk through our plans for the day. 

Instantly I had a good connection with her, although I make a stupid assumption about her accent, are you from??- told my self million times, don't fish-ask,

We walked through the order the day and clarified a few time details so everything will go smooth. As such we wanted to make sure everything ran perfectly. The bridal party needed to walk slowly, one at a time down the aisle and each waiting until the person in front made it to the front of the Church. Perfect! I can get a clear photograph of each member of the bridal party as they walk down the aisle. But as always when is happening it's a bit different, but all went good in the end.

We then chatted happily about the day and went over some final plans such as where we would take group photos, timings for the day, etc. 


Finally the day of the wedding came around. Weather was perfect, specially for me coz was overcast.

On the morning of the 3rd August 2019 I arrived at the Hallmark Hotel to photograph Kay’s bridal preparations. The reception room at the Amy Johnson Suite was still being set up as I came in so I headed straight to the bridal suite, where Sandra was getting ready. 

I started with the detail shots, first taking the dress out to hang on the window. I photographed the rest of the detail elements in and around the action in the bridal suite. Quick run over the street to a Premier Inn when Mina was getting ready, to get same Groom shoots as well.

The Orthodoxy Catholic ceremony was just WAW, loud and beautiful.


Sandra mentioned she would like to have portrait taken on the Lavender field and it was just stunning.

The weather had been a bit hit and miss and I’m pretty sure it was the hottest week ever before. Taking that into consideration, Sandra & Mina couldn’t have picked a better wedding date, it was a just the right day for a Wedding! Surrounded with good friends and family, good food, great entertainment, a beautiful service, Sandra&Mina really did have an awesome wedding day!

Congratulations again to the new Mr and Mrs ! Thank you for choosing me to tell your story and share you day with you. Scroll down for a small selection of photos from the day.
