I cannot thank you enough for being the most dreamy wedding photographer, you really did go above and beyond. From my first email to you to the last photo you took you have been excited with me, you have made the whole process smooth and you have given me memories to treasure forever. I love how personable you are and getting to know you and Joel a little bit on a hill with a picnic was so lovely. Having you at the wedding was just like having an old friend there. You are so great to have around and all my bridesmaids thought so too.
You caught each moment so beautifully and the photos help me relive the best day of my life…which I have now done 6 times!
So much thanks,
P.S. Please tell Joel that it was so great to have him and Function Fever at my wedding, they were phenomenal!!!
Ever since I first met Nay and Dan for their engagement shoot in Gloucestershire this summer (complete with a hilltop picnic, campfire and S’mores… as you do!) I have been counting down the days until their wedding at Brockworth Court Barn!
In the morning I arrived at the bride’s parent’s house where I was welcomed by a huge hug from Nay, the glorious smell of cinnamon buns, Norah Jones playing in the background and warm laughter from all the girls getting ready together. It felt like Christmas day!! When I walked upstairs I couldn’t believe that Nay had laid out all the bridesmaid dresses with individual photos of her with each bridesmaid and personalized gifts for each of them. Nay even went as far as re-painting her bedroom to match her wedding colors! It really gave a minimal, clean backdrop for the photographs which I couldn’t have appreciated more!
Nay and Dan both have a firm belief and love for God, so it was no question they would have their ceremony at St Mary de Lode Church where Nay’s father could marry them. It was truly a family affair with Dan’s sisters reading scripture, Nay’s sister leading everyone in sung worship, her mother and father giving her away, her father marrying them and Dan’s father bringing the message. Clearly family is very important to this bride and groom and that was beautifully reflected in these special roles.
Following the ceremony, Nay and Dan drove off in a vintage VW camper van to their reception venue, Brockworth Court Tithe Barn. As the sun set, guests enjoyed drinks in the courtyard and wrapped up warm inside the barn for dinner and speeches. I LOVE barn wedding venues because they give a natural and down to earth feel to the day. Brockworth Court ranks even higher in my book with its outdoor firepits and plenty of dance floor space which Function Fever kept chock-full until the very end! (Shout out to my husband, Joel for killing it on the drums!!) Nay being a dance teacher had choreographed her and Dan’s first dance… it was amazing and the eruption of applause from guests at the end clearly proved that! And then, what better way to exit your wedding than in a WHEELBARROW decorated so lovingly by your wedding party. ;) What an end to an incredible wedding season.
Nay and Dan, I’ve already said it, but thank you so much for having me as your wedding photographer. Thank you for welcoming me in and for treating me like a friend. Thank you for allowing me to capture your incredible day.
