This was our second tipi wedding. It was our third wedding in the last year where the church was right next door to the house and the reception was in the garden. Luckily we had a glorious day and that makes all the difference when your wedding is set in the garden.
Alex and Deb had an amazing day. I was delighted to be their Rockley Manor wedding photographer. Rockley Manor is just up the road from us and it’s always fantastic to photograph a wedding there. It’s such a beautiful Wiltshire wedding venue. The weather was on our side so the girls could have an outdoor ceremony on the Portico.
Hayley & John met at School and have been together 12 years. We were thrilled to be chosen as their Westonbirt School wedding photographers as we hadn’t photographed a wedding at Westonbirt House before. We did photograph one of our first pre-wedding sessions back in 2011 but haven’t been back until now.
Minti & Jonny met at work, over lunch. Just over a year later Jonny popped the question. He couldn’t get down on one knee as they were sitting on a cliff edge watching a sailing race.
Everyone in Minti’s family has been christened, married or buried at St Mary’s Church in Codford so there was no other option than to have their wedding there. The vicar was lovely and let us get on with it. Us Wiltshire wedding photographers love it when that happens and we always say thanks. It was a traditional military wedding – “It’s hard to be original and unique- nothing wrong with a good old fashioned traditional party!” Quite right.
This was our second wedding at Wellington Barn. Our first at St. Mary’s church. St. Mary’s is a beautiful little church tucked away down a lane just by the Barn. It’s small but can hold 80 guests so can cope with most weddings. Wellington Barn is a fantastic modern barn set in gorgeous rolling Wiltshire countryside. Emily & Andrew booked us as their Wiltshire wedding photographers after they found us on Fearless Photographers.
“This is where the marquee is going and we are going to arrive on a tractor, probably set to music, through that gate you can see over there.” I looked across the fields and imagined what a beautiful countryside wedding this would be. Standing in the garden Amy explained her plans, they were going to build steps up from the field to the garden where the marquee would look out across Wiltshire. All the guests would be seated on straw bales as they greeted the newlyweds and drank champagne. That was the plan anyway.
We shot Leonie and Matt’s wedding photography at Chiseldon Church. As you can see Matt and the Groom dudes looked awesome in their outfits (Probably my favourite to date) and the bridesmaids and Leonie looked beautiful in their mismatched dresses. It was a mostly DIY wedding but the details looked amazing and everything tied together really well and suited Matt and Leonie perfectly.
We were only booked for a couple of hours so had to make the most of it but I love Church weddings and even though it was a cold May day we still got the sun out and missed the rain. Congratulations to Matt and Leonie we had a great time, I hope you have a great future.
