Dale & Rob, Lingfield, English Country Wedding.
Dale & Rob tied the knot on Saturday 30th May 2015 at Lingfield Church in Surrey. The English country style wedding reception was held at Yew Lodge also in Lingfield and I was lucky enough to document their day!
I met Dale and Rob at Lingfield church last year whilst I was photographing another couples wedding. It was pouring with rain and I was hiding under my umbrella when Dale and Rob approached me in some very sensible rain coats.
A few months later we met again at the Star Inn opposite the church to discuss their wedding plans. During our conversation they told me the story of how their relationship started. Dale, a Financial Analyst at Cancer Research met Rob, a Marketing Exec, during their time at Durham University. They dated for a few years before going their separate ways to travel. Years later, a chance encounter in a bar in London, reunited the two and they realised they were meant to be together. Rob would say he was “actively pursued” by Dale and she agreed, she knew what she wanted and didn’t stop until she got him! Dale and Rob both put the success of their happy relationship down to their time apart, where they both had a chance to grow (and in their words) become adults who knew what they wanted.
On their wedding day I remember talking to Rob, who excitedly told me “She’s mine! She signed the register, I am so happy!”
I was on an absolute high when I left the wedding reception later that evening. Being around two people so happy and in love, with two families so obviously thrilled with their union was enthralling.
Thank you Dale & Rob and both families for making me feel so welcome.
Here are some photos from their perfect day
