Last month I was lucky enough to shoot Rebecca and Chris’s wedding. This was the perfect wedding to ease me back into work, the couple were thoroughly loved up and both looked absolutely amazing! The venue was one of my favourites, Offley Place and the sun was shining for us. Now, normally I don’t cry at weddings, especially when I’m the photographer, however this one got me. You could blame my hormones but I think that even the coldest of hearts would have been warmed by this wedding. In the run up to the big day Chris and Rebeca had kept me in the loop with the wedding plans and had informed me that one of their bridesmaid, Chris’s sister was pregnant and due 2 weeks after the wedding. A week before the wedding Rebeca told me Chris’s sister was in hospital, everyone was hoping the baby would arrive safe and sound. The morning of the wedding I was told the baby had been born but they were still in hospital. Rebeca looked gutted when she spoke about this, but they were all hoping that they would get let out, just in time for the wedding. As the service drew closer it seemed unlikely that they would be able to make it, however…..about 30 mins before the service started Chris’s sister arrived, baby in toe, straight out of Hospital. In a dash she was transformed into a stunning bridesmaid and was able to surprise Rebeca when she arrived. I have never seen a bride look so happy just before her wedding. It was a special moment and I felt honoured to have been there to capture it.

A beautiful day, Congratulations Rebecca and Chris xRebecca and Chris 01 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 02 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 03 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 04 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 05 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 06 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 07 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 08 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 09 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 10 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 11 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 12 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 13 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 14 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 15 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 16 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 17 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 18 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 19 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 20 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 21 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 22 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 23 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 24 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 25 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 26 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 27 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 28 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 29 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 30 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 31 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 32 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 33 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 34 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 35 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 36 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 37 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 38 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 39 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 40 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 41 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 42 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 43 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 44 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 45 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 46 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 47 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 48 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 49 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 50 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 51 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 52 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 53 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 54 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 55 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 56 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 57 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 58 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 59 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 60 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 61 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 62 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 63 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 64 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 65 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 66 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 67 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 69 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 70 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 71 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 72 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 73 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 74 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 75 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 76 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 77 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 78 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 79 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 80 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 81 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 82 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 83 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 84 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 85 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 86 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 87 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 88 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 89 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 90 © Erica Hawkins Photography Rebecca and Chris 91 © Erica Hawkins Photography
