At every wedding I have been lucky enough to shoot, I nearly always spend the morning with the bride. However, for this wedding I got to experience a different part of the day and spent the morning shooting the groom’s preparations instead. Everyone was in great spirits and emotions ran high as the groom presented his dad and brothers with beautiful pocket watches as gifts.
From there it was a lovely country drive to the cosy rustic church. The bridesmaid’s arrived shortly after, dressed in vibrant royal blue and the bride followed in a vintage Rolls Royce with her dad.
After the ceremony, confetti and group photographs, I spent some time with the newlyweds in the surrounding countryside. With the sun on our side we walked away with some lovely portraits of just the two of them. I love sharing these special quiet moments with the bride and groom before returning to the party.
The day came to an end with the dinner, speeches and party all taking place in the marquee on the bride’s family farm. Particular highlights for me included some truly touching moments in the Best Man’s speech, an impressive bouquet catch and some competitive arm wrestling.
