The bride's wedding day preparations are one of my favourite parts of any wedding. While the rest of the wedding day is non-stop action, with exciting things happening everywhere around me, the bridal preparations are (usually!) a bit calmer and let me concentrate of capturing the mood, photographing the bride surrounded by her closest friends and family.
The bridal preparations are also a great way of starting off the story of the wedding day in my wedding albums - somehow the narrative feels incomplete if I start with the wedding ceremony.
Here's one of my favourite shots from Katie's wedding day preparations at Anstey Hall here in Cambridge. I'll be posting more photographs from Katie & Alastair's wedding next week.
