A fun, relaxed, classic English country garden party, was how Alex & Al chose to describe their wedding celebration and that is exactly what it was.
Their day began by meeting friends and family at the most beautiful little church tucked away in the countryside of Baddesley Clinton, Warwickshire, where they held their marriage blessing and the Christening of their two children. The tiny church overflowed with Alex & Al’s friends and family and as Jacob & Isabella were christened the font was surrounded by smiling Godparents.
Following the service the guests grabbed their wellies from where they had been lined up outside church and walking in the beautiful sunshine through the surrounding woodland and fields to Al’s parents’ house where the rest of the day’s celebrations were to take place. I was just so lovely to see Alex & Al lead the procession through the countryside followed by their guests, all chatting, laughing and enjoying the amazing weather.
The marque had been set up in the ground of the house and when the guests arrived they were treated to pimms and mojito flavoured popcorn (delish!) and sat under umbrellas and played games on the lawn before being called into the marquee for dinner.
The weather (as I may have mentioned) was amazing all day and treated us to the most amazing golden hour which I certainly took advance of with some couple portraits in the surrounding fields. Alex & Al were so lovely to work with, they so clearly enjoyed their day and made me feel so welcome amongst their friends and families, and I spent the long drive home with a huge smile on my face
I love to shoot weddings all over the country! If you are planning a wedding in the Cotswolds then do get in touch here
Thank you both for a wonderful day, all the best. Helen xx
I just love confetti shots, I mean look at the pure joy on their faces!
Every bride should don a pair of pink wellies on her wedding day, and should have a groom as gallant as Al (amazing dress holding technique going on here!)
High five bouquet style!
Alex & Al’s marquee was filled with beautiful little touches, from the map table plan to the name cards hand written by Jacob.
The bride and groom paused to indulge in a spot of highly competitive boules!
It was important to Alex & Al to have a few precious family photographs in their old Triumph Herald.
