Danielle & Chris
“We are so excited and beyond happy with the photos.
They are incredible and neither of us have stopped looking at them. “
After the incessant rain we’ve experienced on many of the weddings so far this year, it was a welcome relief to work on a completely dry day. With barely a cloud in the sky we made our way to rural Warwickshire on a warm and sunny day in June, for the wedding of Danielle and Chris.
Danielle and her five bridesmaids (plus two flower girls) all got ready at her family home while Chris got ready at his parents’ home not too far away.
The wedding ceremony was held at Danielle’s local parish church – St Mary Magdelene in Tanworth-in-Arden – a church we’d never previous worked at. The service had a lovely, personalised feel to it, with emotional readings from Danielle’s brother. How a church wedding should be, really.
After the service we kept Danielle and Chris back for a few minutes to get a few photos of them alone around the church. As we returned to the front of the church, the entire wedding party and most of the village was lined up waiting to see the couple off in their open-top Rolls Royce.
Onto the reception, which was held at Danielle’s family home. The garden had been specially decorated with lots of small touches – including a decorated old tractor! A large marquee had been set up in the spacious garden but there was still plenty of room for all the guests to relax.
After the meal and speeches we took the couple around the rest of the grounds for a while. By this time the light was a little kinder and with all the formalities of the day done, we got some great, relaxed pictures of Danielle and Chris among the various areas of the garden.
A couple of days after the wedding, we received a bouquet of flowers from Danielle’s parents, thanking us for our work on the day. What a lovely gesture!
