“We are absolutely over the moon with all of our photos, they are better than we could have ever imagined! Thank you both so much!”
“From our first meeting with Rob & Sarah, we knew that they were perfect for our wedding. They were so friendly and made us instantly feel comfortable. They responded quickly to all of our (probably annoying!) questions, and made us feel like nothing was too much trouble.”
Chloe and Simon’s gorgeous summer wedding was a very local one for us – just a couple of villages away from where we live. They got married at St Leonard’s church in the tiny Worcestershire village of Clent with the reception a short distance away at Belbroughton Church Hall.
We’d been really looking forward to photographing this wedding ever since the couple booked us about a year prior. It had been a while since we’ve had an opportunity to photograph a ‘village hall’ wedding – they have a unique feel to them which you just don’t get in a larger, more traditional wedding venue – a bit more home-made and homely. Chloe and Simon’s choice of suppliers – all based in the Midlands – reflected this also and the result was a day bursting with love, life, fun….. and good food 🙂
This was (mostly) a fine summer’s day and really rather warm with exceptionally bright afternoon light as everyone exited the church. Although it clouded over a bit in the evening we still had lovely conditions for Chloe and Simon’s main ‘couple’ shoot in nearby fields. They were initially a bit aphrensive about their ‘couple’ photos – but they needn’t of worried. “Just be yourselves“, we said. And so they did. Safe to say that we all had a bit of a laugh out in the fields that evening and it really shows in the photos 🙂
A beautiful day, a lovely couple and a great crowd of people. What a summer wedding should be, really 🙂 Enjoy the pictures:
