We love outdoor wedding ceremonies :-)!
Today, we are delighted to share firstLOOK image previews captured at Emily and Paul's beautiful wedding captured by www.markpugh.com.
THE DAY OF THEIR WEDDING
With 30 degree sunshine, Mark Pugh joined Emily and Paul for their wedding at the Dower House Hotel in Woodhall Spa.
As their friends and family gathered in the grounds for the al fresco ceremony, Mark Pugh joined bride Emily in her suite to capture her wedding preparations and detail.
Mark said: "I love returning to the Dower House Hotel. The secluded location is stunning, and the hotel offers the perfect backdrop for any stay, wedding or event.
I joined groom Paul, who is goalkeeper for Lincoln City as he waited patiently for Emily to take the short walk down the aisle to join him.
After a beautiful ceremony, everyone stayed in the gardens for Pimms and formal photographs before entering the main dining area for afternoon tea - perfect, as a hot meal would have been too much on such a boiling hot day!"
The couple took time to join Mark Pugh for a series of beautiful newlyWED photos, and even left their party briefly for a newlyWED sunset session, and images captured in their bridal suite.
After the cake cut and first dance, Mark left Emily, Paul and their friends and family to dance the night away.
The couple were more than happy to try all of Mark's suggestions for photographs, and the time and effort they put in to their wedding photography has more than paid off as you can see from this beautiful collection of fineART image previews.
Emily and Paul are a fantastic couple, and it was a privilege for Mark Pugh to have been able to spend time in their company.
He cannot wait to meet them again to present them with their final wedding photography collection and hope they enjoy viewing their firstLOOK image previews.
Congratulations Emily & Paul!
Their final wedding photography collection will contain 400 plus images. However, we have decided to share 100 plus firstLOOK image previews on behalf of www.markpugh.com, and these can be viewed below. We will share additional image previews soon.
As always, enjoy.
