I met Terri and Andrew for the first time at Warwick castle. We toured round the grounds bouncing ideas off each other and generally goofing around. Both Terri and Andy work for large car dealerships, Terri as a Business Manager and Andy as a Sales Manager. I remember Terri smiling almost constantly and Andy coming out with some of the cheesyest ‘dad jokes’ I’ve ever heard, we got on great!
There are so many backdrops at Warwick Castle that we were more than spoiled for choice. Terri and Andy decided that a second shooter would be handy and so I got my friend and excellent photographer involved. We’d be pressed for time we realised as there wouldn’t be much light to play with so we hit on the use of a golf cart which was great on the day as we got to zip around the grounds at well not break neck speed, something more like six miles an hour but perhaps because there were actually six of us on it, myself and my second shooter Keagan, the videographer, Terri and Andy of course and the driver too. The day was packed full, with occasional surprises to keep the guests on their toes. I interviewed Terri about their day. Read on to hear all about it.
So, how did you guys meet, what’s the story?
A kind of Beatrice and Benedict situation then, that in mind what was the proposal like?
Fair enough say no more, moving swiftly on to safe territory. How long were you engaged?
So you had a bit of time then, although planning a wedding can be a full time job, how did you find it?
Yeah it was awesome, went without a hitch, well bar the jester having whiplash but not much you can do there. Did anything else ‘interesting’ happen along the way?
True, I was secretly hoping for her water to break during the ceremony but no such luck. It would have been cool to have been born in Warwick Castle though! What made you choose it as a venue?
It sat very well with the whole theme, for those who weren’t there though; what did you wear and why?
Very cool. I loved it. Why 20’s though, a certain connection or does it just fit…?
Everyone got involved too. I walked into the ceremony room and it was all braces and peaked caps. Speaking of, tell me about the ceremony.
Once the serious bit was out the way then what was the rest like, the party and reception?
You had some very unique entertainment, in face I’ve never seen anything like that done at a wedding. Can you tell me about it?
Good point, I loved that actually, and for those reading at home, I laid in wait whilst a guest sat right next to the ‘suit of armour’ and settled herself in, it was about 10 minutes later that he roared to life and gave her a massive fright. Lovely. So they fought, then you ate and then it was first dance time. What did you choose and why?
Have you got any advice for couples getting married?
Jolly good advice. Would you do anything differently?
Good answer! A dicey question this one, did you stick to your budget?
So technically yes then! Perfect.
Feedback time for me; this question was done via email so as to get a more honest answer and more honest feedback; How would you describe my style of photography?
Well that’s a good start, but what was it like to work with me?
Blimey! Good to know :) Thanks.
So Credit where Credit’s due, who did the following?
