We left the gorgeous Juliette and Matt trying to keep warm on a beautiful October day (it may have been sunny, but boy was it cold) Let’s rejoin them as we end the group shots and prepare to head indoors for the wedding breakfast. I love this first shot, as I think it really sums up the love and laughter of the day and captures Matt and Juliette’s wonderful relationship.
Girls just wanna have fun…….
I absolutely adored the menu cards that Juliette and Matt made for all of the tables (I think they are now officially pros at these!) Judging from the reactions, I think their guests enjoyed them too!
Although the day was mostly dry, there was a bit of a downpour while the guests were eating, which gave me this most beautiful photo opportunity…..
Juliette asked her Uncle Simon to act as toastmaster for the day. He was an absolute legend – every wedding should have a Simon!
During the course of the speeches I noticed (and photographed) no less than 6 people crying! This is something of a personal record for me, thought I would just share a couple with you though…
Of course there were plenty of laughs as well…..
Juliette is a lady after my own heart – she couldn’t chose just one wedding cake, so they settled for 3! A croquembouche, a lemon cheesecake and a chocolate fudge cake, all beautifully executed by the fabulous Kooky Cake Parlour. Caketastic!
I love a good action shot and you can usually rely on children to provide them….
I love that Juliette and Matt chose “When I’m 64” as their first dance – it says it all…..
I usually try to get the bride and groom outside to do a few shots around sunset, think beautiful cloud formations and fabulous skies. However, this was an October wedding, so by the time speeches were done it was already dark! When I saw the full moon rising over the granary alongside the castle barn I knew I had found my evening shot….
