Welcome to Part 2! If you missed Part 1, go back and refresh yourself.
Announcing Mr and Mrs Leckenby!
And on with the speeches…
As Ruth and Simon worked the room after the speeches, me and Lianne like to ninja around catching people at their most relaxed. That way, we get no forced smiles or fakery, just people having a good time.
Time for cake! This one had pretty blue butterflies twirling up the side (edible ones, not real ones). I always try and get something a little bit different with the cake cutting, ’cause otherwise it can be a bit of a dull shot and I don’t like how posed it looks when all the rest of my photos from the day are so un-posed (if you know what I mean!?) With this one, I waited for Ruth and Simon to look away at everyone elses cameras and I got them just blending into the background with that amazing cake in full view. It gives something a bit new to an old and tired traditional shot.
Onto the night’s events… (where some kids steered their elders into some sort of deathmatch). And it wasn’t long before everyone hit the dancefloor…
The first dance (including an impressive dip!)
All day long, we couldn’t escape the smiling face of Simon who clearly couldn’t be happier, and Ruth was constantly beaming with happiness. You know when two people are just right for each other and these two couldn’t be more right. Congratulations to you both.
“Hi James. Both simon and I wanted to say a very big thankyou for Saturday. We had a really good day and you were very un-intrusive and we can’t wait to see the photos!” – Ruth & Simon
