Gloucester wedding photographer rustic country wedding
Just before Christmas I photographed the beautifully wedding of Kate and Tom in Gloucester. When I think of this wedding the main thing which I remember is Kate’s smile and laughter. Kate seemed to be laughing from the moment I arrived to the moment I left!
I arrived at Kate and Toms house to capture the bridal preparations. There was a very relaxed atmosphere, as the makeup artist, hairdresser and bridesmaid all went to school together. Whilst enjoying salmon bagels and prosecco everyone laughed as they reminisced about growing up and all the fun they have shared together. The star of the show was Kate and Toms beautiful little girl Evie. She wandered around enjoying all the attention from everyone. It was so nice to be part of their day as I had previously photographed Evie as a newborn. I love that I have been invited to follow them on their journey with new baby and now their wedding day – such a honour.
The wedding took place in St Anne’s Church, Oxenhall which is set up high with beautiful views across Gloucestershire. To add a real magical wintery feel the ground was still partially covered with snow from the recent snowfall. Nothing beats a winter wedding with some real snow!
Kate could not have looked happier as her dad walked her arm in arm to the church entrance. Inside a nervous looking Tom waited for the big arrival. Kate did not disappoint, she looked absolutely stunning as she walked down the aisle. She was followed by gorgeous bridesmaids in bright cobalt blue and super cute Evie in her flower girl dress.
After the ceremony we all headed over to Over Farm Barn. The traditional and rustic barn (which is 160 years old) looked so christmassy with fairy lights, a huge sparkly Christmas tree and numerous Christmas decorations creating a warm and sparkly feel.
With delicious food, laughter filled speeches and some impressive dance moves, the afternoon and evening flew by with Kate and Tom enjoying every minute. A truly special day which despite being a cold winters day was full of warmth and happiness. Thank you Kate and Tom for choosing me to capture your wedding day.
