It seemed only a few days since I had done Bob and May’s pre-wedding shoot, but in fact a whole month had passed by – the busiest month for weddings this year coming to a close with Bob and May holding their wedding at the beautiful Childerley Hall in Cambridgeshire (for history buffs amongst you, Childerley Hall is the surviving redbrick wing of an Elizabethan House, where Charles I was once held under house arrest!).
There was a real village feel to the start of the day as May walked with her father and bridesmaids through the village to the church – every couple of seasons at least one bride is able to do this and I think it is a lovely acknowledgement of an era long gone, where the pace of life was slower and simpler (we all need to slow down sometimes!)
This was a true marriage of nations – May is English and Bob American and their day celebrated the best of both worlds, complete with Pimms, Croquet on the lawn and a ‘blue grass band’ for the reception not to mention a British Mini car decorated with bull horns, Stars and Stripes and Union Jack flags to leave the church for the reception!
I couldn’t resist returning to the barley fields to get some romantic shots of them together and later in the day some really dreamy shots of May wandering through the barley; Bob and May are typical of the client that my documentary style of photography attracts, they were really relaxed about their day and just enjoyed being themselves – which for me really embodies what I say to couples when I meet them – ‘be inspired, be you’; That is what fantastic documentary wedding photography is all about; a happy couple who really enjoyed their day and will love their wedding photos for years to come………..
