Just before Christmas, we had the great pleasure of shooting our good friends wedding, Edward & Alison. It brought back such happy memories for us as it was just a stones throw away from where we got married, in beautiful Tetbury, Gloucestershire.
Me and Lou where guests as well as photographers, which made the day extra special, enjoying all the perks of being a guest at a wedding, as well as the honour of being able to document a friends most special day.
The Great Tythe Barn, is very well set up for a wedding, with lots of cabins within the grounds for guests and bridal party preparations, and it was all go in Alison's room; 5 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, and a very talented hairdresser.
The service was held at Holy Trinity Church, Long Newnton, just a mile or so down the road. A very intimate service filled with candles, and possibly the warmest church we've been in. Very much needed on a cold and wet winters afternoon.
Edward and Alison only wanted a few formal shots, which meant we could be busy mingling and take photos at the same time. Anyone who knows Edward, knows he's a performer, and would relish the opportunity to entertain the audience, sorry guests :) and entertain he did!! Such a fantastic speech, so funny and moving at the same time. The best man, Keith, had the massive of challenge of following Edward, and he too had the guests in stitches.
The Soul Thieves kept everyone up dancing, we've never seen anyone perform a pasodoble to Stevie Wonder, but thanks for the lesson Paulo!
An amazing wedding for an amazing couple, they put so much hard work, and thought into the day, and it really did pay off, and we are so happy everything came together.
We hope you love the photos. Your back from your honeymoon already, and you've still not seen them.. eek!
Here are just a handful to keep you going until we see you next.
Love you both
