If you're looking for a beautiful english country garden wedding with a stunning Pronovias dress, pretty in pink bridesmaid dresses, powder blue groom and best man suit style as well as lots of laughter and romantic couple shots then this is the wedding for you!
Sophie and Stu booked me through recommendation from their friends Lee and Vicky whose wedding I shot a year ago (see it here) as they liked the style and wanted to achieve something similar for their wedding day. So their wedding photography requests were simple, relaxed shots with minimum 'forced' photos and fake smiles. I think at this wedding we achieved that even when we did our couple shots as these guys looked so good on the camera in their natural poses that they effortlessly just worked it! Sophie reminded me of a modern day Lady Mary from Downton with her beautiful wedding style and features. Stuart didn't disappoint either with his incredible powder blue linen suit which he managed to keep pretty pristine considering the damp start to the proceedings.
Speaking of which they decided to get married in a beautiful english country garden that set for a beautiful backdrop for both their wedding vows and for the pictures. Such a stunning setting for an outside wedding (even during the stupid British Summer rain showers). the guests then got to roam the grounds at their pleasure and make their way down to the stunning riverside marquee. Sophie had decorated this in such a cool, rustic vibe that it felt like the best village fete I'd ever had the pleasure of attending. The whole day was super relaxed and fun with speeches that had people crying so hard with laughter.
I also had the opportunity to capture the throwing of the bouquet which is so rare these days but it's a tradition I love to photograph as they're so much fun. Then to kick off the party the happily married couple danced to some awesome reggae tracks that made me so jealous that I couldn't stay to party with them!
It was an awesome wedding with so much cool style and fun moments it makes me smile that I get to be a part of it and call it work!
