Wedding at St Gregory Church Sudbury.

 

I shot this image whilst assisting a fellow photographer, Joe Dormer, to photograph a wedding in Sudbury a couple of years ago. Joe went off to photograph the bride getting ready at home whilst I photographed the groom at the church, we later met up to photograph the rest of the wedding together. The ceremony at the church and then the reception at The White Hart Hotel in Great Yeldham.

The reason this image stands out for me is because the vicar seen here standing with the bride is also her father and he uniquely went on to perform the most part of the actual wedding ceremony. There is something very special I think about being in a position to marry your own daughter and also something very wonderful to have your own father carry out your wedding ceremony.

When I look at the expression on his face, to me it just radiates his pride and his joy. His pride and joy in that very moment as he sees his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time and also as he thinks of the moments ahead when he will conduct the marriage ceremony.

Although at a much lower level it also resonates with me that the church is called St Gregory’s and is in Gregory Street and the name of the bride’s father is Revd Canon Gregory J Webb.

It’s my intention to choose an image each week as my image of the week and to reflect upon it and tell you why I chose it. Please do come back and see more of my choices and please do feel free to share the image and leave your thoughts/ comments below.

 Wedding Photography St Gregory’s Church Sudbury.

I was recently involved in photographing Jo and Adam’s wedding, which I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed. They were a really lovely couple and a real pleasure to photograph. Jo looked stunning and I have to say Adam scrubbed up pretty well too.

What was quite fascinating and unique about this wedding was that Jo’s father is also the reverend for the church, revd Canon Gregory Webb, and it was he walked Jo down the isle to give her away and then switched roles and actually led the wedding ceremony.

One other thing that I find quite a fascinating coincidence is that the church, which is in Sudbury Suffolk, is called St Gregory’s and the Reverends name is also Gregory!

The wedding reception took place at The White Hart Hotel in Great Yeldham, which for those who don’t know is in north Essex and is a fantastic wedding venue (and is only a few miles from where I live).

It was a glorious day, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, the bride and groom were fantastic – a really lovely couple I congratulate them both and wish them a long and happy life together.
