This was a lovely wedding. Laura & Tim live in Australia so I had only met and spoken to them briefly once before to discuss their Cripps Barn Wedding Photography and it was Laura’s mother with whom I had been communicating. On the day, however, Laura & Tim were a joy to work with – very relaxed and very keen for me to photograph the day in my normal unobtrusive style.
Laura & Tim wanted to have an outdoor ceremony for which Cripps Barn is excellently set up for with a beautiful woodland clearing specifically for that purpose. They clearly brought some of that Australian weather with them as it was a beautiful day. The surrounding fields were bathed in sunshine and it all looked stunning. There is something about outdoor ceremonies that adds a relaxed air to proceedings. Laura arrived as guests were wandering through a woodland path to take their seats. Laura and her father walked down the “aisle” to two of their friends playing some lovely music on violins creating a really nice atmosphere.
After the ceremony everyone enjoyed a drinks reception in the sunshine on the sunny lawns in front of Cripps Barn before heading inside to eat with some excellent speeches interspersed throughout the wedding breakfast. It was lovely to see so many people having the opportunity to speak about Laura & Tim from the fathers of both bride & groom, brothers, sisters and best friends – all very funny and heartfelt.
After an opportunity to take advantage of some lovely evening sun the dancing started which was pretty epic with some impressive moves being thrown on the dance floor. As the celebrations continued I left them to it. I’m pretty sure I enjoyed the day nearly as much as they did.
