ALEX AND BEN
I first met Alex and Ben in our local Starbucks over 3 hot chocolates. It feels like ages ago and that’s because it was! It was a big count down before their day in August this year, but it was very clear they truly cared about their wedding photography and I loved hearing about what was important to them and their plans. Alex and Ben chose to spend their day at Lemore Manor, the most beautiful venue a good few hours away from our home town of Northampton but as I put over on my Facebook page the other day – it was totally worth the trip.
I could tell the love they had for one another the first moment I met them and I was so pleased when they wanted to book at the end of it all. When I say that the love I saw that first time had built up 10 times over on their wedding day – I mean it! This was an emotional one with lots of tears – all happy ones of course. The biggest congratulations to Alex and Ben for both their marriage and the announcement of their upcoming baby. Here are some of my favourites from their gallery alongside a Q+A with the newlyweds, enjoy!
How did you meet, who proposed and how?
We met at work in Morrisons, he was the store manager and I just transferred to his store… I chased him haha! He proposed a year and a half after we met at the restaurant we had our first ever date in, it was very romantic right next to the fireplace!
Why did you choose Lemore Manor for your wedding?
We chose Lemore Manor because we just fell in love with it straight away, everything was beautiful and the staff were incredibly nice.
Why did you choose Sophie Ann Photography?
We chose Sophie Ann photography originally because we loved the candid style of taking pictures and after meeting Sophie we just knew we wanted it to be her for our day. Even after finding out it was a 6-hour travel distance she was still as excited as we were!
What advice would you give to couples currently researching photographers?
Our advice would go on your gut instinct, finding the right photographer is like finding the dress.. when you know, you know!
What advice would you give to other couples planning their wedding day?
Be relaxed, try not to get stressed. We’re very laid back people and we figured even if the day doesn’t go as planned (unlikely), I’m still going to marry the love of my life and that’s what the day is all about.
THE AMAZING SUPPLIERS
Describe your wedding in a few final words:
It was perfect, seems like a dream!!
What Alex and Ben said:
‘Sophie was an absolute dream, she captured our day perfectly and the pictures are beyond beautiful! Our guests have commented saying how great the pictures are and how they didn’t even realise they were being photographed. We received ALL of our photos a little over 2 weeks after we got married! Couldn’t recommend enough!!’
