We were in a bubble of excitement and happiness-and very much relief!
The sun was shining, and there were smiles all around.
It took forever to get everyone out to the area we were allowed to throw confetti as everyone was chatting-despite our photographer's best efforts in calling everyone down!
I ended up waiting at the bottom of the path whilst James went awol to try and sort something-which then ended up with everyone walking past and hugging, kissing and congratulating us-eventually everyone was where they needed to be!
I love the confetti shots, I think they are our most natural photos from the whole day, and probably at our most happiest too!
The church and the arched tree were the perfect backdrop to the photos too.
Alex waited so patiently to throw the confetti at us bless him.
Just look at his little face-he really loves his Daddy :)
I love James' family friend and future sister in laws face's in this photo-James really was finding that confetti all day haha.
I think James got the most of the confetti!
And thankfully I had a bridesmaid ready to help with confetti removal for my hair!
After that it was all a bit of organised chaos-we had planned to have only the immediate family/bridal party photos taken at the church and for everyone else to head to the venue (in hindsight it may have been better if I had put this onto the wedding programme)!
Me and James aren't the best at posed smiles (well not after 100's of snaps!), and our boy's weren't playing ball either as Sam had not had a sleep and I think Alex was for some reason tired at this point too! Nether-the-less we have a few posed family shots like this!
Our first as a family of all Spencer's.
Once all the obligatory photos were taken James and I had a 20mins or so just to ourselves and our photographer which was lovely, if not a little awkward at times-it's quite hard being natural when you know you are being photographed.
The photo on the right is my favourite photo of the both of us, definitely think I will be buying that as a large print or canvas.
We then had to dash off to our reception venue as were supposed to be there about 4.30 but ended up being nearer 5.30 due to ceremony and photos taking longer than we were told/thought! So it was very much calm before the storm-almost literally as it started raining in the car!
