Calm and Beautiful Orocco Pier Wedding

Back in March when the weather was somewhat less predictable, Clare and Kenny managed to land a beautiful sunny day for their Orocco Pier wedding. Orocco Pier's setting below the majestic Rail Bridge, with the beach in front and the river lapping on the shore always makes for a great wedding day.  

These two knew how to have a calm and beautifully peaceful wedding day. They both had their best ladies by their sides with Kenny's sister Gillian as his best lady and Clare's sister Debbie as her bridesmaid.

Before the wedding the scene was very calm but fun with Clare mum's fun personality keeping everyone with smiles on their faces as they had sandwiches and got their hair and make up done by the very lovely Pouts & Pinups. Whilst the girls were enjoying the girly moments of bridal prep, Kenny was relaxing in the bar having a pint with his friends and family. 

 

Humanist ceremonies are always so personal and I love how the bride and groom can create a ceremony which is exactly what they want and tells their story in their own way. As part of Clare and Kenny's ceremony they chose to pass their wedding rings around the room for everyone to hold.  

After the ceremony and the group shots Clare and Kenny had a bit of time to themselves, walking around the beautiful town, exploring the terraces and the beach. I love giving the bride and groom a bit of time to themselves to explore and catch up and tell each other about their morning and all those little moments which have happened during the day. 

The clouds came in at times and the wind caused a few moments of veil chaos but I think that Clare and Kenny enjoyed this little moment and I enjoyed being in the background catching it on camera.

"We booked Ali to capture our wedding day and we truly couldn't have asked for a better service. 
From the first contact we made, Ali was friendly, approachable, helpful and professional. We met before our wedding to discuss what we were after and had a mini photoshoot which was great to experience what it would be like on the day. 
In the run up to the wedding, Ali kept in touch with us making sure she had all the details correct. 
On the day itself, Ali was great. She was very much in the background, capturing all of the special moments without being intrusive and kept everyone relaxed. 
After the wedding, Ali kept in touch and even sent us through some previews as she knew we were excited to see. Ali created a slideshow for us using a selection of our photos and background music. I loved it so much I watched it 3 times in a row and sobbed my heart out!!
We were absolutely delighted with the end result. Ali captured the day perfectly and we have such special photos which we will treasure forever. 
Thank you so much Ali, you truly are an artist! "
