It was a beautiful morning this morning as I headed off to deepest Gloucestershire for Harriet and Charlies wedding. Harriet was a bridesmaid last year at Sarah and Darren’s Trunkwell House wedding and Sarah was returning the favour today (and doing a sterling job with the makeup as well). I started the day photographing the preparations – the bride and her friends were holed up in a farmhouse not far from Long Compton, the small village that was the home of Charlie’s family and the location for the ceremony and celebrations.
I really enjoyed today – it was nice to see some faces from a previous wedding and everyone was in great spirits. The wedding reception was in a marquee and the couple had hired a great jazz band which added to the party atmosphere. As always it’s a pleasure to post a few images that caught my eye and I’ll be posting the complete gallery when the brand new Mr. and Mrs. get back from the west coast of the U.S.A.
If you were at the wedding I’d be happy to email you when the complete gallery has been uploaded. **CLICK HERE** and I’ll drop you a line.
A couple of favourites from the bridal preparations.
The boys arriving at the church
Charlie the groom. And some pretty cool perspective on the yew tree bushes if I say so myself.
I love this shot of the grooms parents welcoming the guests.
And here’s the beautiful bride.
A little bout of pre-ceremony nerves…but it was all OK in the end :)
I love the light in this image and the ‘framing’ provided by Harriet’s father and the girls.
The ceremony over and it’s down the aisle.
Crisis averted by the vigilant (and speedy) best man, Ed!
A favourite bride and groom image from the afternoon. I love the detailing in this photograph.
Not sure why I like this image but not sure I need a reason.
In a way, this kind of sums up the afternoon for me :)
I always enjoy photographing the receiving line at weddings.
I hope the honeymoon is fabulous fun – thanks again Charlie and Harriet.
