In April I had the pleasure of second shooting this gorgeous wedding for Catherine Evans Photography in Shropshire.
I’ve worked with Catherine before and knew it would be an amazing day.
I woke early and drove the 3 hour drive up to Bishops Castle where Catherine lives. After a good breakfast we drove to the beautiful neighbouring village of Edgton.
The bridal preparations were taking place at the bride’s gorgeous family home. The bridesmaids and family were bustling around getting ready and the mood was so happy!
The wedding ceremony was in the pretty old village church which was literally a few steps from their back garden!
I loved how the wedding guests walked across a field into the garden for drinks before the ceremony, and then watched as the bride stepped from her door and walked across a path, directly into the church grounds!
It felt very personal and private as if being inside a beautiful bubble for the day!
Clemmy was a stunning bride. She wore a bespoke dress and a family heirloom tiara which had been worn by all brides in the family. It was just breathtaking!
After the ceremony the reception was held in a marquee in the garden which was decorated so beautifully with trees and greenery. It had a feel of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ about it and was just gorgeous.
The speeches were full of laughs and feeling and everyone felt the emotion of them.
We took the time to take portraits of the newly married bride and groom in the garden with the church as a backdrop. I loved this because it was such a perfect and personal setting for them.
The bridesmaids then joined us and I loved capturing their close friendship in these shots. They were so much fun!
We had such lovely weather on this day, rain was expected and Clemmy even had her white bridal wellies at the ready! Thankfully they weren’t needed (although she did admit to feeling a bit sad that she couldn’t wear them!)
After the first dance we left the bride and groom to party the night away with their guests, and I have a feeling it would be going on into the small hours!
