DAVID AND KATIE – THE PUMPING HOUSE
THE WEDDING DAY – DECEMBER 3RD 2021
The Pumping House had always been on my wish list of wedding venues to photograph at so I was super excited when Dave and Katie told me about their chosen location.
On the day of the wedding, I arrived at the venue to find Katie having her make up done by Hannah. It was a lovely chilled out atmosphere full of laughter, helped by Kates bridesmaids popping open another bottle of Champagne to toast the morning. I grabbed a few pictures before heading upstairs and getting some beautiful shots of her stunning Aubrey wedding dress hung up in the bridal suite.
I then met up with the lovely wedding planner, Jo, who showed me around the gorgeous venue. If you’ve been to the Pumping House, you will know it is like a maze of rooms and corridors, and within the first hour, I had inadvertently walked into the kitchen and a store cupboard!.
When Dave arrived with his best man Lee, they headed straight to the bar where I met up with them for a quick catch up. I have known Dave for over 20 years and he’s a genuinely lovely guy so it was a real privilege to be part of his day.
As Dave and Lee joked over a pint, we grabbed some shots of them before they were ushered into the ceremony room to await the arrival of Katie.
The ceremony room looked amazing and the flowers looked and smelt incredible.
As family and friends started to be seated, I headed back up to Katie who saw her dad for the first time on the day and it was a wonderful moment. Katie was a truly stunning bride.
It was then time for the big event and as the music started, Dave turned to see Katie and their smiles said it all! Their ceremony was perfect and after a beautiful reading, they said their “I do’s” before Katie pumped the air with her flowers and they were officially married!!
Confetti and photos outside followed before we headed back inside for some fantastic speeches from Dave, Lee and one from Katie.
The evening was full of love, laughter and partying….oh and not to forget some roulette!
Guys, this wedding was amazing and an amazing way to finish the year. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it.. I wish you all the best.. Matt
