Amber and David are wonderfully down-to-earth and level-headed. They planned a super low-stress wedding that didn’t cost the earth and was super fun.
I knocked on a few wrong doors before finding Amber’s parents’ house. (At my first ever gig as a wedding photographer, I turned up on time, in the right room, in the wrong hotel).
Amber and David realised their dream of living on a canal boat a few years back, and four months prior their family had grown to three. So getting ready there was out of the question, opting instead for Amber parent’s “bricks and mortar” house.
They tied the knot in Leicester city. It was standing room only as more and more friends crowded into the ceremony space, freaking out the registrar. After she regained enough composure to marry them… rapturous applause.
David makes his money as his band’s frontman, writing song lyrics and showing people a good time at his shows.
Multi-talented, (not jealous at all) he wowed us all by swapping brogues for boots with wheels. Ever seen the first dance on roller skates? Me neither, and it’s awesome. (Fun fact..roller discos are re-surging).
Two bands kept us dancing until it was their time to join the floor for a journey through the decades with a hand-picked playlist.
Big shout to Janie and her crew from Orangetree Weddings for making Seagrave Memorial Hall boho and pretty, impressing us with authentic Indian, serving beer after beer to the heaving bar, and doing it all without a hitch, all night.
The newlyweds have since moved into a bigger boat as Mylo’s crawling. Amber reports she is much happier.
