Melissa & Tom ~ Priory Hall

To have one wedding day is a dream come true but for Melissa & Tom this was the first of two that they were having…. sadly I only got to photograph this one as the second was just the two of them on a beach in Mauritius ♥ WOW….. but as they were going alone they decided it was only fair to have another wedding for their families to attend and that’s exactly what they did on Sunday 10th June 2018 at Priory Hall in Dudley.  Although later in the day it was still scorching hot, the heatwave had well and truly kicked in but thankfully as it was a little later in the day the sun was starting to soften a little in the summer sky.  I hadn’t met Tom before the big day but a smiling young man greeted me when I arrived and I knew I would have fun photographing this lovely couple.  One of Tom’s Brother’s and Bestman did a great job of keeping him calm as he waited for his Bride, who was a tinsey bit late 😉 but what a sight for sore eyes she was when she did arrive along with her Brother in Law who had the proud job of giving her away.  It was a lovely ceremony and after the I Do’s everyone followed the happy couple back outside into the sunshine to celebrate with the happy couple.  Melissa & Tom’s little nieces were such adorable flowergirls and did their Aunty & Uncle proud.  After the formal groups Melissa, Tom and I went for a walk around the ruins at Priory Hall for some more intimate photographs.  We had great fun and for Melissa the more taken the better… a photographers dream!!  Time soon drew to a close and it was time for me to say goodbye as they went to celebrate more with their families.   I wish I could have snuck in their case and photographed the Mauritius part of the wedding too hahahaha but thank you so much Melissa & Tom for asking me to photograph this very special part.  I loved it.  I hope the second wedding went as wonderfully as I imagined it to be… I can’t wait to see your photo’s 🙂 Here’s to you Mr & Mrs Clews and to a long and happy life together,  Sally xx
