An uplifting wedding day video

I’ve just sat and grinned through a slideshow of wedding images, twice – and had to share! The wedding I’ve just been enjoying is Gavin and Stephanie’s. They were married just a few weeks ago on a lovely sunny day, near High Wycombe – the reception was at The King’s Hotel. They chose one of my favourite wedding photographers: Matt Parry.

Stephanie wore a beautiful strapless wedding dress with a little bit of crystal decoration – and she’s absolutely gorgeous with her hair in loose curls with a crystal tiara. Both Stephanie and Gavin smile so brightly in every picture that, along with photographer Matt Parry‘s use of a lovely soundtrack by Amy MacDonald, I just think this is a really uplifting wedding in every way!

There’s another reason for my use of the word “uplifting” as well… apparently it was a surprise… watch the slideshow!

Matt Parry is one of my favourite wedding photographers: his wedding photography blog is full of slideshows set to a great choice of soundtracks – and I could spend hours there!

    Beatiful photographs. Like Matt’s approach – similar to my relaxed, candid view of covering the day. Love his images!

    thanks claire. they were a great couple and the helicopter REALLY was a complete surprise (the groom had contacted me 2 days before the wedding to let me in on the surprise as well)
    If the video link isnt fully working hit for this and other slideshows.
    I ponder long and hard over the musical choices..nothing obvious and cheesey and am always looking fopr suggestions if anybody has any????

      I have one – but the bride has to be called Isabel! It’s a song by Frank Turner. 🙂
