So this was our last wedding of the year and another foray into Polhawn Fort. We returned with memories of a cracking day involving Tamsyn – the purple-haired bride (awesome colour – but probably not called purple. I’m gonna get told off for that one!), Aaron the groom who was ready in time only by the skin of his teeth, Poppy – that little barking machine, a foul-looking and potentially lethal cocktail, awesome light show and lovely sparklers to finish.
Now, obviously there was more to the day than that. But from our point of view sometimes its the smaller unusual moments that we remember.

One of the great things about Polhawn Fort is that it is one of those wedding venues where our couples and their family have the whole place to themselves. Where else do you get to spend a couple of nights and your wedding day in a real Napoleonic fort? Of course, it’s easier for us with bride and groom getting ready at the same location as well! We have spent quite a bit of time at Polhawn recently and no matter how often you shoot at a venue, you’ll always come back with something a little different. That’s got to be down to the couples we work with and Tamsyn and Aaron were no exception. She pretty much spent the whole day with the brightest smile lighting up her face from start to finish. It got a bit emoshe at times, especially when the father of the bride saw his daughter for the first time, ready to be given away. Have a look at the shot below, it’ll tug on the old heart-strings I assure you!

What else sticks in the mind about this day? A page-boy powered carriage containing a beautiful baby girl, a bride and groom prepared to get out in the cold every now and then, a large naked man with fake guitar (no pics there I’m afraid!) and despite it being a cold November evening, a romantic setting sun with our newly-weds as happy as they had looked all day long. Tamsyn and Aaron – respect!
