I had met with them st Stourhead a few months ago for an engagement shoot, and as I entered the hotel it was lovely to see a selection of those photos in vintage style frames to welcome the wedding guests. For me, the biggest advantage of an engagement shoot is that it builds a better relationship between the happy couple and myself, so on the big day I am already a familiar and friendly face.
An engagement shoot also gives the couple much more confidence in front of the camera, as they have more experience in posing for me and have more confidence in their natural smile and posture. As soon as I photographed Becky and the bridesmaids final preparations it was clear that she was very comfortable and natural in front of the camera, and the images look stunning.
And when I saw Andy with his groomsmen awaiting the arrivals of guests, I was greeted again by a wonderfully friendly and natural smile. This was just the start of an incredible day, and it was a joy to share this special day with Becky and Andy, finished off in style with fireworks.
These are a selection of photos by Jamie McDine of Wiltshire Wedding Photography.
"Myself and Becky would love to say a 'super huge thank you' for taking the photos for our Wedding. We couldn't have met a nicer, considerate, friendly and professional guy like Jamie. If your looking to get married and you want someone to make you feel comfortable and take great pictures Jamie is your man." Andy & Becky
