A trip down to the lovely county of Worcestershire for John + Sarah’s wedding. It was lovely to have already met them for their pre-wedding photos up in The Peak District earlier in the year and it was great to be back in their company. I visited the church to scout out the light and meet the vicar before I headed over to meet Sarah and her bridal party for prep. I was welcomed into the house by Sarah’s lovely family and friends to a very relaxed bride and bridesmaids while Dan, my second photographer for the day, joined John and the chaps at The Hadley Bowling Green Inn.
It was lovely to document so many lovely moments (and a few funny ones for the groomsmen) during the morning, especially one of note was all the girls seeing Sarah ready in her dress for the first time, such an emotional moment for them all. Meanwhile, Dan was capturing John desperately trying to stem the blood from a shaving incident, thankfully doing so with great success and help from his groomsmen.
It was only a short trip over to St Michael’s Church in Droitwich for their ceremony in a beautiful little church which is a special venue for the family I believe. Loads of lovely natural light came into the front of the church which was full of character, their ceremony was lovely and even supported by music from some close friends. After the ceremony, we assembled for one of the best confetti walks I have witnessed this year, oodles of confetti which made for some awesome photos and loads of fun for John and Sarah too. Just take a look at the photos and you’ll see what I mean.
We headed over to John’s family farm for the reception where we took some portraits and documented their wedding reception set in such a lovely location in one of the farm fields. We managed to dodge the downpour thankfully, having not gone too far from the marquee thankfully. My second wedding this year as well where one of the bridesmaids also shared their birthday with the lucky couple, a rather special one though Sarah’s sister was the lucky person to receive the Birthday cake as part of one of the speeches. Then we moved onto a hilarious best man’s speech (aren’t they always) before John and Sarah cut their cake and everyone let their hair down heading into the evening.
I managed to whisk the newlyweds away for 10 minutes for some lovely last-light portraits before we all headed back into the marquee for the first dance and then the party that ensued. Anyway enough from me, have a watch of their photo highlights video below or you can always scroll through the images underneath. Enjoy.
