The Indian summer finally arrived for this Notley Tythe Barn wedding. Such a glorious sun kissed day as I arrived for the bridal preparation at the majestic Crendon Manor. The girls were a breath of fresh air; so high on life on a special day and this made for some lovely fun and candid moments.
Luckily I have covered many a Notley Tythe Barn wedding and love this location as its intimate and relaxed within a world of nature. Ali and the groomsmen looked immaculate and in great spirits as I weaved my way through the many guests arriving. It’s such a great time to capture documentary photography of the expectation and nervous energy.
Soon the bridesmaids arrived followed by a beaming bride who just sparkled in the September sunshine. All was set and the long walk began into the wedding ceremony. A beautiful entrance by everyone and an incredible atmosphere for the lovely bride and her very proud father as they greeted the groom.
With stunning light I captured all aspects of the ceremony and was able to manoeuvre for the reading and song also. The newlyweds exited to a shower of confetti and a much deserved celebratory drink.
For the private shots we made our way back to Crendon Manor. Such an exquisite location that worked to perfection. With some time to spare back at the wedding venue I captured the fun of a drinks reception and a few family shots.
The wedding breakfast was beautifully set and ready for the event to begin. As the drinks flowed the atmosphere became quite boisterous. This added to the heady mix of the day and many fun and dynamic images. It’s a great time for the newlyweds to witness and the level was raised for speeches. Plenty of cheers, laughter and tears also.
With the weather holding I captured the early evening feel of the day as guests relaxed outdoors before cake cutting. Finally the dance floor greeted Emma and Ali as they performed their first dance surrounded by all their loved ones.
Such a magical day in the Buckinghamshire countryside with a great couple.
