Andrea and Nathaniel’s wedding was held in the beautiful Cotswold countryside just north of Bristol. They got married in Holy Cross Church with the reception next door in the Cyder Barn, Owlpen. Both were new venues to me but I’m hoping to be back again soon.
For Andrea and Nathaniel’s wedding, it really did feel as though Bristol had moved out of spring and into summer. With temperatures into the 20’s, blue skies and very little wind, keeping warm was not a problem. The wedding ceremony took place in the beautiful church only a few yards from the reception. The church was one of the darkest I have been into in a long time. Surrounded by trees and with stained glass windows, it made it a challenge to grab the photographs. Well, as you can see, I rose to the challenge and was able to grab some wonderful photographs of the service.
Andrea and Nathaniel’s Wedding Reception.
After the wedding, we walked across the grounds of the manor house to enjoy a glass of champagne. I started the wedding photography by capturing the magical moments – friends and family congratulated the happy couple. I did this in a reportage style, keeping the photographs wonderfully natural. We then moved onto the formal photographs, capturing all the group photographs with Andrea and Nathaniel’s friends and family. We then left the wedding guests to enjoy the sunshine and champagne and made our way around the wonderful grounds. This was the time to capture some lovely moments of just the bride and groom.
Time to party
The marquee attached to the side of the Cyder Barn was the where the reception took place. The Marquee was beautifully decorated with the food looking wonderful. The meal was followed by the speeches and they were certainly worth waiting for. The guests were certainly entertained, as you can see from the photographs. As we moved into the evening, the dancing started and it was time for me to leave this wonderful wedding.
