OH MY GOD! WHAT A WEDDING. YOU GUYS ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS LIGHT AND AIRY TIPI WEDDING, THE STYLING WAS JUST PERFECT WITH LOTS OF GORGEOUS OVERGROWN FLORALS, AND AN ART DECO VIBE
The excitement before the wedding
I began the morning at a little cottage not far from the church wedding venue, where the boys was getting ready, and it was really exciting, because everyone was in a good mood. Rosie wore an amazing and delicately beaded art deco style gown and Gary wore relaxed styled light grey suits and they looked so incredible. I let the boys finish getting ready and then we headed outside for some beers and group photos in the sunshine.
The wedding took place over at St Mary’s Church, and was a stunning church ceremony. So everyone knows that I rarely shoot church weddings anymore due to vicars becoming more strict on photographers which can often impact the images we’re able to get BUT every once in a while it really is lovely to shoot a church wedding. During the ceremony they had some beautiful readings, which brought pretty much everyone to tears. After the ceremony there was a big cheer from everyone, and then we did a confetti tunnel outside the church door. After the ceremony we all walked over to Manor Farm which is literally one of the most amazing houses I have ever been to, with gorgeous decor and it even had it’s own secret walled garden.
The wedding reception took place in the tipi opposite the walled garden as the sun was setting, which they’d decorated with so many gorgeous elements, it was super understated but so well done at the same time. It was really unique.
It was a beautifully sunny day, which was perfect for photos. While the guests enjoyed canapes and cocktails, we wandered around the venue doing fun and creative portraits. My favourite photo from our couples session is of the two of them walking through the gardens at sunset.
During the reception they played lawn games, which everyone loved. Thanks to the insanely warm weather, the cocktails went down a storm. For the wedding breakfast was done by the most amazing caterers, and it was loved by all the guests. After the wedding breakfast they had some wonderful speeches, then the couple cut the wedding cake and they went straight into the first dance. They also had a little polaroid camera, which was a great laugh. This was one of my favourite weddings of the year, thank you to the lovely Elle from Yellow Bird Photo for having me along!
