CLAIRE & PAUL
We have been lucky enough to photograph two of Claire’s sisters weddings. So I very much felt like part of the family on Claire and Paul’s day.
Bridal preparations took place at her Dads stunning Georgian house. Bridesmaids where a mix of friends and sisters. Bouquets containing the most beautiful sunflowers had been lovingly grown and made by one of the bridesmaids.
The reception venue was only a few minutes drive away. This was the first time the venue had held a wedding yet it was so lovely and perfect for what Claire and Paul wanted.
The ceremony area was under a tree with seating on hay barrels with cosy blankets. Paul was busy arranging the music when I arrived his and Claire’s gorgeous boys were busy adding glass jars with candles tied to the tree with ribbons.
Other children ran around the farm chasing chickens and swooning over bunny rabbits. Immediately I was in love with Greenslate Farm. The ceremony was personal and elegant. Bridesmaids shimmering in their navy blue gowns in the autumn glow. Their children tied a red ribbon around their wrists sealing Mummy and Daddy together forever.
There was an array of cakes, brownies, muffins all made on site lovingly displayed in the corner of the dining area. A mismatch of chairs of different heights and some late additional garden furniture all added to the quaint DIY feel of the day.
Late autumnal sunlight provided us with just enough time to capture some beautiful moments under the ceremony tree whilst the boys ran free around the farm occasionally popping their head in for a photo.
