Julie and Ben commissioned me to be their wedding photographer earlier in the year. To say their wedding was magical, would be an understatement.
The weather, the location, the planning, the atmosphere all fell into place on their very special day. The wedding was held in the gardens of the family home and was a veritable feast of family fun and love. It seemed like there were more children there than adults at one point – which is great, of course. As a documentary wedding photographer I love kids at weddings and always strive to capture their cheeky ways and antics.
The ceremony itself was held at the end of the garden with the lovely meadows around and the sound of cricket ball on willow in the next field. The bees were out in force on this lovely summer day, as were the voices of the congregation. Ben and Julie both being very accomplished singers, the guests at the wedding were always going to be in full voice.
The vicar, a family friend, presented a wonderful service and had some wise words for all around. It was clear to see Ben and Julie’s love for each other – and that spilled out in abundance to their own children, their family, guests and their children.
The afternoon moved on with a traditional English tea party, some speeches, some tennis and some magicians to keep the kids happy. Finally finishing up with some wonderfully energetic dancing into the summer night.
