A beautiful autumn day greeted us for the Olde Bell Hurley wedding of Natalie and Paul.
This wonderful Berkshire Barn location is a real gem and one that I’ve been coming to for over a decade as a preferred supplier. The sun was shining brightly as I met Natalie and the girls for the bridal preparation. Natural light streaming in allowing for relaxed, fun image capture.
Downstairs in the bar of this former coaching in the party had already begun as I squeezed my way though to meet Paul. A boisterous and uplifting experience made for some fun images.
Soon it was time for the ceremony and the groom waited patiently for a very dramatic entrance and the long walk. Love this time to catch the energy of the moment. The newlyweds exited to cheers and made their way outside. All the chidren were ready with confetti and Nat and Paul were showered!
Lots of fun, candid and quirky moments captured throughout the drinks reception. The barn was beautifully laid out for the wedding breakfast and the atmosphere rose and accelerated as the drinks flowed. Such a high energy at this time and plenty of fun, relaxed image capture. The speeches are always a powerful experience as plenty of tears, cheers and laughter.
Nat and Paul escaped briefly for some private moments in the grounds of the Malthouse opposite the barn to catch the last of the sun in the golden hour.
Soon it was time for cake cutting and the first dance. The dancefloor filled as the guests and family joined the lovely couple and partied hard.
Massive thanks to Gabriela and the Olde Bell team for all their hard work. Loved my day with Nat, Paul and everyone. Such fun for this Olde Bell Hurley in the countryside.
