Louise and David's wedding was a beautiful, unique day. With many of Louise's family and friends attending from Essex and David's family coming from South Africa it truly was a global event!
I started the day by visiting David's grandparents house to take photographs of the Marquee which had been set up in their back garden. It was already a hive of activity with all of the groomsmen adding the finishing touches to the decorations (which looked amazing) and David's grandmother setting up the cake and overseeing the preparation of the food, all of which she had made herself (I truly have no idea how she managed to cater for so many people!).
From there, I nipped down the road to where Louise was getting ready with her bridesmaids in the beautiful Pigsty Cottage. It's an AirBnB property and is surrounded by the most amazing gardens which, luckily, we had a little spare time to explore!
After their emotional church ceremony Louise and David led the way back to the Marquee, literally stopping traffic as they made their way through the village on foot. Pimms and canapés greeted their guests upon arrival and Louise and David had even supplied personalised stubby holders for everyones drinks! After a couple of hours mingling in the beautiful sunshine, it was time for food (and it was delicious!), cake and speeches. I always love photographing the speeches and they didn't disappoint - they were emotional and funny with the occasional tongue-in-cheek moment and inside joke! We were even treated to a quick fire "Mr & Mrs" game which was very entertaining.
From start to finish it was such a beautiful day - and I'm not just talking about the weather! It was a real privilege to be there to capture some amazing memories for the happy couple.
