Saturday 21 December 2013 - Christchurch Ware and Tewin Bury Farm

bride and groom

The first thing that greeted me on arrival at Carolyn's parents was the most beautiful heart shaped wreath on the door, so I knew I was in the right place. Her bouquet matched the icey blue Christmas theme, complete with pine cones.

I'd had a sneak preview of 'the dress' but it was absolutely stunning in real life and I was glad to be of assistance in helping getting it laced up... it's something I've become a bit of a dab hand at!

I met Nick at the church with his bestmen and the ushers who kindly did some 'hand modelling' for me.

Carolyn's dad not only had the honour of walking her down the aisle but he also conducted the marriage. It's certainly the first time I've seen a 'vicar' in black tie but it made the ceremony so personal and special.

Now to say that the drizzle didn't stop all day is an understatement. The bridal party braved the outdoors for a couple of photos outside the church but others were done inside. This does mean being more creative but that's part of the fun of being a photographer.

Nick and Carolyn just made it to Tewin Bury Farm before the light completely went but I also used the barn beams for photos.

The reception in the Tythe Barn had been decorated with so many little details - from a Mr&Ms quiz, bestmen speeches sweepstake and thank you posters.

The party was kicking off as I left but I managed to capture some action on the dancefloor too!
